10 Reasons Men Should Wear Short Shorts
Jul 05, 2011 - by Jessica Lapidos
After a public outcry about last week's High Waisted Shorts debacle, ladies (and some men) have retaliated. The request? That men will stop fearing their gams and start wearing short shorts. The man's upper thigh, when shown correctly, can be a beautiful thing. And in the words of one sexual predator lady friend of mine, "It makes men feel vulnerable." No really though, it takes a man with confidence to try it, and it's so sexy when you (yes, you) pull it off well. Ten designers agree:
Michael Bastian preps in khaki rolled up to its shortest capacity. You'll cause quite a stir at the country club.
Italian made shorts come tight by Byblos. None too short, a little peek beneath a squeeze lets you flex your muscles.
DSquared2 takes the more relaxed approach with a little slouch. The look is irreverently sexy. Like Paul Rudd in Wet Hot American Summer.
In Louis Vuitton's magical blue watercolor, the short short almost looks fit to swim. Certainly fit to travel, it'll look like you've been hopping 'round the continent.
Costume National short shorts are in a grey area. But the breeze is sure lovely on a summer's day.
On the athletic side, Dirk Bikkembergs shows shorts can be short and sweat pant.
For the dandier man, the D&G floral shorts are riding high.
Hermès proves short shorts look rich, especially in a gem tone.
Take it to the bike and layer cycling shorts underneath like Moncler Gamme Bleu.
Bottega Veneta has a ruggedly native look in leather. It's almost reminiscent of the loincloth, like the wild sexiness of Tarzan but tailored with an Italian hand.
