That is what it reminds me of is the old short pants that boys wore until they were old enough to be considered "Young Men" and get their first pair of long pants.

I'm not a fan on the two models presented however, if they used different models who were standing up straight and had a more pleasant look on their face it could make the difference.

Surprisingly, I like it with the vest. But full jacket? That just looks silly.

where's the sneakers??? or baseball cap??


seriously, if "business casual" is the objective,, from the guys(my) perspective, its more about losing the tie, than able to wear shorts

I have seen some hybrid suit/shorts at gatherings, and it didn't look good at all

although,,, I have to say, id still rather see this hybrid style than the baggy jeans/gangster rapper look- looks pretty stupid on the white kids up here

Don't worry. No matter what the title of the thread or some magazine wants you to think, this is not going mainstream.

Okay, Pharrell Williams makes good music, but I wouldn't call him a fashion icon.

The vest looks better than I'd imagine it looking, but I still can't see myself wearing that. Not at work anyway-- maybe, MAYBE to a lounge-type party if I were feeling edgy, but even then, probably not.
