Men's Suits With Short - Business Insider


I'm sorry, but if I saw a man (or woman) wearing this, I would laugh my a$$ off.

Um, no.

Looks like under shorts and they forgot to put their pants on.

For me, a man's suit is all about the pants and the jacket. It's got a military-like look of authority about it that would be just killed by shorts.

Shorts are great with a T-shirt, though.

haha I've seen this plenty and never thought it weird.

I don't own or wear any suits like this but it looks fine on some guys.

Those are horrid. In the hot weather, I forego the jacket and just have the dress shirt, tie and slacks.

They also make good short sleeved dress shirts as it is.

This "look" just looks ridiculous.

Only an ectomorph could pull that look off and he would be picked on about it.

I can't imagine a large athlete wearing that clownish outfit.

Nor myself.

beach towns, LA, etc. More often than not it has been chino or linen shorts with a blazer versus an actual matching pair suit as they show here, but the overall look they are going for is nothing "new." The blazer and shorts combo looks better than the matching pair though.

It's not something I do but the right guys can pull it off.

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.
I'm no expert on men's clothing, but I suppose it must provide some relief, and may not be as heavy as regular trousers. It might even appear more polished with socks rather than without. Shorts with long socks were fairly standard back in the day, especially with Baseball and Football Uniforms, and perhaps Basketball jerseys to an extent. It kind've looks more appropriate for golf even, and golfers aren't as casually dressed as other sports—appearing, more "lax" than regular attire, yet, still esteemed more "professional," than mere slacks and a shirt.
