With all the recent trends toward shorter shorts, I wonder, do you have a preferred inseam length?

I personally like 9.5" inches.

It depends of your height. I am 5.8ī so 7® to 8® suit good for me.

I don't know how many inches, but as long as they are long enough to reach the knees they are acceptable.

Depends on the individual; their height, and what kind of shape their legs are in.

I'm 5'8. I prefer ~7-9" depending on the style of short. 5-7 is ok for swim trunks for me. Definitely above the knee though in all cases.

I like "board length" shorts that cover just the bottom of my knees.

Older guy here. “Excersize” shorts (yep, I still wear ‘em) mid-thigh. Everyday casual wear shorts - a little above the top of my knees. Just my preferences.

I have been over all the sizes. Anything at the knee is too long,mid thigh are short shorts in my book.

9" is just perfect. Nice enough to look clean,no matter the occassions.

Cargo,sweats, denim looks bad unless you are under 25?

I am kinda chubby ,muscular dad . No more dumpy looks for me.

Swim trunks can go down to a 7".

Personally, I do not like shorts that come to the top of my knees. Sorta defeats the purpose of shorts - they are hot! Then again, I live on the coast where it is hot and sticky most of the time; thus, I prefer shorter shorts.
