I don't think men look ridiculous in shorts. people care too much about other's appearance these days, everyone wear what you want & be happy!

Personally I think shorts are like trousers, they depend on the cut, fit and quality. As I am getting a bit old to look like a member of the 'Beach Boys or Jan and Dean' if you remember them , I stick

Men's shorts are standard issue over here in the Midwest as soon as the temperature is in the 50s. Hairy, skinny or husky legs or knobby knees do not matter.

I wear shorts throughout the whole year, sometimes December to February I may occasionally wear long trousers for a bit of warmth.

 

I really don't care about what others think as my comfort is all that matters. After two knee replacements I find that long trousers irritate my scars, but who am I kidding I wore shorts before the TKRs.

 

Obviously, in the evening I will wear long trousers to conform, other than that shorts forever.

Do men generally look ridiculous in shorts, or is it just when they bought them without their wives being there?

 

 

I look great . . . or at least I think so!

 

Mind you I wouldn't dream of buying them without permission!

 

 

Love it Shetlander...and so do I.

 

I live in shorts from around may to October, especially when cruising...

Mind you, I recently saw some God damn awful ones being displayed in Hamburg so yes, there are some ridiculous sites.

 

As way of a PS. I'm definitely with Terry Wogan's TOGS as well: sandals no socks.

I'm with you Ray except for that December to February, unless I'm out of the country.

 

The blood thins a little as one gets older.

Just to widen the debate a little.

 

Some men when wearing shorts will wear sandals with brown, grey or black socks: now that really is a ridiculous look.

Just spotted your comment on socks Ray. I'd already made a similar one.

 

Yes, I fully agree. In fact I even had a T-Shirt embroidered to reflect the fact...

Sandals will never be right, with or without socks - IMHO. My wife has other ideas, but I'm stoic and will not budge.

 

So, back to the very first post: I choose my own shorts and do not need her permission for this. Neither does she need my permission to buy tops (that's her thing). However, I do need her input on colour coordination as apparently orange shorts do not go with a dayglow green T-shirt - I would beg to differ.

 

I knew SR would have a picture to illustrate any point.

I chose two pairs of my shorts on the basis that they had useful deep velcro pockets for cards, cash, phone, etc, but they are now on their way to the charity shop.

The correct look shorts have shallow pockets, so in crowds it's a case of keeping hands on cash.
