Men in Short Shorts: Yay or Nay?
It’s summer, and that means two things: Legs. Our editors sound off on whether the short-shorts trend is just for the fairer sex or if men can get in on the action, too.
Yay: Men generally have more shapely legs than women (and less cellulite). Let’s see them.
Nay: Two words: leg hair. The fewer we have to see, the better.
Yay: Thighs that are full of power and class should not be hidden. See: Magnum P.I., Roger Federer, Daniel Craig.
Nay: We like a little left to the imagination. We’re classy like that and expect the same in a man.
Yay: Really long shorts remind us of high school boys, and we like to keep things legal.
Nay: We’re worried his, you know, boxers might hang out.
Yay: Short shorts demonstrate confidence and self-assurance, which is hot.
Nay: They can’t be comfortable for dudes. Imagine the anatomy involved in sitting down in those things.
