I notice zero difference in fashion if i go from Minnesota to Manitoba. Even people in the hip neighborhoods in Minneapolis and Toronto were quite similar. if you compare Miami Beach to Toronto you would notice more of a difference

Yeah. That would be why. If you went from Palm Beach to Atlanta it'd probably be totally different.

Exactly the reason that many men are nonetheless choosing instead to wear the longer trunks.

The fact that he probably would not be bothered by his testicle hanging out is obviously a huge sign of his personal self confidence, however, and speaking for myself only...I don't want to be exposed to it or view it.

I think we should start a new thread called 'Why do continental European men insist on wearing budgie smugglers'?
Who's with me?

Indeed... I am from Europe and I HATE seeing those older men with those short things. I always wear longer ones, as nearly everybody in my age (25) does, at least in Germany.

If we talk about long shorts, so and in Russia is the fashion for them, but less than in America or Canada
