something I can't figure out, though- I'd think shorts would be even more uncomfortable in the hottest weather, because if you're outside the sun is constantly hitting your legs & causing perspiration, & if you're inside your legs stick to the furniture!!
It's not humid here in Denver, so my legs don't stick to anything! I wear shorts all summer, and on warmer days in winter. They're just more comfortable, and there are nice shorts for going out. All mine are just below the knee - no "peek-a-boo" shorts for me But if you're from NY, you're probably used to people dressing more formally. In the West, people tend to be much more casual. Shorts, t-shirt, and flip flops are ok for dining out at many restaurants here.

Let me clarify. When I say shorter shorts, I mean roughly mid-thigh or so. And nothing wrong with Richard Simmons shorts, but those are primarily for running and working out.

I think its funny that a man showing anything above the knee is scandalous when we've just now gotten rid of the low-rider look on men. I had to look at way too much crack and the threat of exposed short and curlies for too long to care about people seeing three inches above my knees. I doubt we'll go back to those 80's OP shorts that basically were boxers with an extra inch of fabric. But if I'm wearing shorts there is a reason and I'd prefer they clear my knees.

I agree. Too bad we live in such a judgemental society.

I see nothing wrong with wearing those for working out, but neither sex should use those for regular wear.
