I have never seen this on a guy before. I have seen an outfit like this but only on women in their 80s or 90s and even then, not even very often. Are you sure this isn't a joke? This is a really scary look. It's like oversized scrubs for very short people gone terribly wrong.

Same here. I remember having culottes as part of my Catholic school uniform when I was 5. I'm 38 and I don't think I ever wore them after that year. They were out of style THEN.

Not primarily a dude thing anyway. Maybe the OP meant Bermuda shorts?

In any case, ever since college I've been open to a little gender-bending in the male wardrobe. I spent a term in Scotland, and back in the US I used to watch a bunch of very athletic hippie dudes with rippling abs play frisbee while wearing those long flowing crinkle skirts that are so popular with the patchouli set. I suspect it was just too hot and they wanted to keep their junk cool. But, DAMN it was unexpectedly sexy.

Edit: Kinda looked like the pic in that link but they were a little tighter and the guys were older - I would guess in their late 50's or so. And they weren't denim, but soft cotton. And I should mention that I'm in Boston and walk about 15 min through some touristy areas on my way to the subway after work on most days. They may have been tourists? I don't know but it was definitely men and they were definitely wearing culottes.
Those are "manpris"...like capris pants for women...and these look silly enough - can't imagine culottes...or does the OP mean skorts?!

These are what were called "gauchos" back in the '70's....supposedly S. American cowboys wore them...and then they became a short-lived fashion for women.
