LOl. True.
Anyway, I have a feeling that we met back then when I was still living in Miami.
Did you go to Comic Con NY several years back?

I like wearing shorter shorts because I think I look better in them, and frankly while I know styles change, I thought it was silly that someone would be wearing what is supposed to be called "shorts" only to have them come down all the way to your knees. Those aren't "shorts," those are "longs." Also, during the summer I'm in the water a lot, and shorter shorts have less wet fabric sticking to your rear-section inhibiting any movements.

It is probably Chinese manufacturers trying to save a penny or two on costs. That's all.

I wear short shorts for running, but other than that it's long pants 99% of the time. Short shorts are uncomfortable and honestly, I really have no need to flaunt my legs.

Has anyone else noticed this? Or is this a Miami thing?

And may this trend last forever and ever
I've seen this look, and it screams "extremely gay".

It's as tacky as Ugg boots IMO.

If you tell me that something is "extremely gay" (with screamy face) I'm going to feel more inclined to do it, just out of solidarity with the gays! But somehow I think shorts that fail to reach the knees are more significant to fearful straight people than genuine gay men.
