It depends on leg length and shape, leg hairiness, leg pallor, and how ugly the kneecaps are, plus how fitted the shorts are. Snug short shorts look very effeminate, and short shorts look stupid on long legs (retro NBA style).

Sorry folks. I guess I should have included a picture to illustrate what I was talking about. [IMG][/IMG]

That's the way shorts should be, IMO.

BTW....nice legs.

Waxed legs + plus short shorts makes it seem like trying to show off the legs - that is not something a normal man should do.

I say, of you got it , show it! One of the best attributes I seem to have are my legs and butt , and it's not just the wife that has told me that over the years.! I have no trouble finding my summer staple Tommy Bahama, shorts just above the knee, and a whole closet full of matching silk flowered shirts. Not cheap attire, and when I am not sporting deck shoes( never any socks with shorts real dorky) I wear my steel toe work boots., mostly when on the job site.....it's become my trade mark ...and if you think I am a young guy, forget it, 72 in July....

Hey look, a man in shorts!

Those are perfectly normal shorts. Why would anybody object to those?

Why not?

I definitely notice........ and appreciate......... nicely shaped legs on a man.....with or without hair.

Like women, men have a choice in length of shorts. What they feel and look best in is the right length.
