Most men? Where? In LL Bean land, if you are of certain persuasion
perhaps. Just above the knee is what or even slightly longer for nearly any man I know. But I agree that hemming is the basic solution for the OP as to pant length

Still, 12 inch shorts nowadays are in the minority for most brands, even with their big and tall collections.

Try Eddie Bauer. They have some 12 inch shorts, but you can also buy other styles in tall sizes.

Try a store that sells industrial or working man's clothes. Dickies makes a "long" short like what you are looking for, that falls to or below the knee. It is pretty baggy looking too, and some gang looking guys seem to wear them.

Walmart sells them.

Most people wear 10 inch inseams.

Wait what? LL Bean shorts tend to run long. So I'm not quite sure your intended sarcasm landed the way you intended. But then again you also referenced sexuality in regard to shorts above the knee so I think we just come from different worlds.

As a 35 year old, straight man, the majority of guys I know wear shorts definitely above the knee - not just at it or below. I'd say 7-9" is the most common inseam among my friends/crowd. And I'm not even talking about a preppier crowd where 5-7" seems to be the norm.

The at the knee or longer length seems to be more common with men in an older age bracket than myself though. And there is nothing wrong with that, but just providing some perspective. In my age range, I feel I would agree with CB at Sea that 7-9", hitting a few inches above the knee, is the more common look, among all persuasions.

I'd look at Bean's, myself.
Don't even cut them off. Just take them to your nearest drycleaner, and they should have a tailor/seamstress who can shorten them to whatever length you want. If you cut them off yourself you might not leave enough length for a professional-looking hem job, and you'll wind up with shorter shorts than you want.

As kids we used to take old jeans and cut them into shorts. One time I cut one leg shorter than the other it looked ridiculous.
