Umm, not really feeling this.

Men's Suits With Short - Business Insider

Quote:
Retailers are starting to push a new trend in menswear: the short suit.
The ensemble looks like a regular suit from the waist up, with a sport coat over a button-down shirt and sometimes a tie or bowtie. Instead of trousers, however, the suit's bottoms are cropped at the knee.

J. Crew, Topman, Asos, and Barneys are among the retailers selling the short suit this season. They may be taking cues from fashion icon Pharrell Williams, who donned tuxedo shorts to the Academy Awards earlier this year.

"Itís definitely having a moment, particularly with younger guys," Jon Patrick, the creative director at menswear company J.Hilburn, told Businessweek.

J. Crew is offering four different kinds of short suits that cost about $400.

No, those will never sell. At least I hope not, I'll lose all of my respect for my fellow males.

A few years ago, a relative got married. Another relative wore one of those types -- although I think he wore cargo shorts and paired it with a sport coat.

He looked like the moron he is.

This has been a popular look in Bermuda for years. There, they use long socks rather than leave their legs exposed. I'm not certain most men elsewhere are comfortable with this much leg exposure unless they're in a casual, laid back environment.

Yuck! The look seems incomplete. Like it better with the vest....looks more polished and vintage.

^^^^ It doesn't look so weird when you get used to it.

That said, I am not a fan.
