There is a newer brand of shorts out there called Chubbies that are geared toward men. They are available by internet only and are shorter than knee length. I have seen discussions about them and how they are popular on college campuses, but as far as I know, have not noticed anybody wearing them other places. They look like good fitting and stylish shorts. Are they becoming more popular or is it just a trend that will stay on campuses?

I think they're nice looking, but then again I'm old enough to remember when men still wore shorts above the knee all the time.

Oh wow. I had to look them up to see what you were talking about. Reminds me of the shorts guys used to wear when I was in high school. OP. Ocean Pacific.

These days I will say I prefer longer shorts, not more than inch or two above the knees.

I Googled them and like them as I don't like the really long shorts, I prefer 6" inseam. However, they are rather pricey. I do like their website and their marketing ideas.

I have to wonder if these were new/old stock shorts from the 80's that never sold. Maybe someone bought them cheap and is selling them now at a premium.

I don't mind the length (it's very 1990's), but the pastel colors sported by "preppy" 20-somethings are a bit too SEC frat bro style. I prefer volley shorts that have become the rage among youth Down Under, just because it fits the SoCal vibe much better.

I like the volley shorts that JC Penney sold, but they discontinued them last year. Now, I may have to give Chubbies a shot.

Yes, I am wearing them. Assuming you are talking about shorts shorter than knee length ones - kinda short shorts worn by our parents back then in 70s - 80s
It is not only college students who wear them. I am def. not! HAHA ( I am in my mid -late 20s)
If you go to big cities, you will see guys wearing them. Assuming the weather is nice.
First the hipster wore them 2 - 3 years ago. Then about a year ago, everybody jumped into the bandwagon!
