    In the area where you live, is it generally considered appropriate for men to go on the streets in short shorts in summer?

    Are the ones shown below socially acceptable for sports? Or just a stroll around the block?

    (I'm not talking about beach areas.)

    Short shorts should only be worn by runners. And even then, some styles are questionable.

    1-4, all ok.

    People need to get over their uptight attitudes toward the human body. The guys are showing off their legs. Big whoop. Get over yourselves.

    Lolwut?

    1 - Standard attire at a gay gym.
    2 - Gay cruise pool wear.
    3 - Probably can wear in public without turning too many heads.
    4 - No. Just no.

    For casual wear around town, you probably shouldn't go shorter than Clark Griswald's shorts here..

    Sadly, short shorts have been long out of style.

    They are coming back in style. I see the younger guys wearing them at my gayborhood.

    I personally love them and thinking to buy me some.

    We're talking about in public. Some people need that much coverage. Or more.

    Items 1 - 3 were appropriate in the 1978 - 1982 time frame.

    The designer of Item 4 should be horsewhipped if he actually thought that those were appropriate outside of either porn, or the privacy of one's own home. Or a sex club.

    For the modern era... Item 3 might pass muster in public, coupled with an appropriate shirt.

    I think #s 1 & 3 would probably be OK. 2 is too skimpy and 3, well... Used to wear the corduroy Op shorts throughout my teens, and loved them. Hate todays long, baggy stuff. Whats wrong with showing a little leg?

    Anybody who grew up in the 70s remembers the good old days when shorts were short. Young men today have a combination of fashion-lemming mentality and body shame, wearing clown shorts down to their knees and past.

    If you look at your father and uncles, and your grandfathers, it seems that men seem to get stuck with the fashion sense they got comfortable with in their formative years or high school and college.

    A runner, I wear running shorts all the time... when running, at the gym, at Homo Depot, at the bank and grocery, etc. And at home (if I'm not naked) it's always just boxers... in wild prints.

    I wish guys today felt comfortable... being comfortable.

    My ass is to big to fit into those. Plus, I'd be mistook for a hooker.

    1 and 3 are fine, especially if you are running. 2 is good for the beach and 4 should only be for the bedroom.

    I wear these soccer shorts for running and if I am going out casual; short but not super short.

    I'm a soccer (euro football) fan. I love the vintage video of the guys with awesome legs in the shorty shorts. And then there's George St Pierre the MMA fighter in his asshugging bulge hugging shorty shorts. Yeah show me more quads!

    Personal Opinion: are they hot? No.

    Is the poster of this thread hot? Yes.
