I'm with you on that. It seems that shorts are slowly getting shorter for guys, but I think it's going to take a cultural shift to get mainstream acceptance for shorter male shorts. Remember, there is a whole generation now that associates shorter shorts with females and gay men and capris with women. They think that because male capris are baggy, they are still shorts. I agree that when they are below knee length, they are capris, no matter how baggy they are. I have spent time in the extremely macho cullture of Central Amarica, and men there wear regular capri pants.
