Is it true that they are coming back in style. I heard that recently. Also, I never understood why it became very taboo for a man to wear them like the old style. I've seen this topic discussed on Yahoo Answers a few times. Respectful posts only, please.

I consider shorts to be "play-clothes for children," not for anyone past the mid-teens... unless of course a person is gardening, playing sports, etc.

Shorts are worn on the lower half of men and considering the area that the shorts cover, men should be careful not to wear something that could expose private areas!

Too short shorts on men grosses me out so bad. I really hope it doesn't become fashionable again!

Shorter shorts for men are indeed coming back. Right now I think that trend is in the 'Early Adopter' phase, with a lot of the more creative or 'hipster' types wearing them. I'm sure in a year or two it will reach a mass audience. I personally like that we are moving away from "Big and baggy is better", as a straight male. Clothes should complement your body, not make your body look like a large blob where people can't tell if you are extremely obese or really skinny.

I don't care for them too short or too long. I like at or just above the knee in mens shorts. Never shorter than mid-thigh.

And never ever ever should they hang off below your arse with a length down near your ankles. I don't know how this trend got started, but it needs to go away. Underwear are for under clothes, they are not an accessory.

Exactly! Mid thigh is just bad!

right at mid-knee cap while standing has always been tasteful. Below that is "young punk" and above that is "women only"

Sorry, no shorty shorts for my man! I never cared for them on guys. Now, they don't have to be big and baggy either - somewhere in the middle works for me!
