well that's what I think too.
I'm not exactly a fan of short shorts a la 1970s.... but rather... properly fitting shorts above the knee look great. Look so much matter than those heinous plaid cargo shorts ppl wore... or those loooong basketball shorts.

They thought it was a riot, and I got to enjoy how great their legs looked in that short style! Some young men have really great legs!
One reason I stopped wearing all my shorts- too short. I usually wear pants, pedal pushers, or roll my pantlegs up to chonglers length.
