A reader asks:
Summertime calls for shorts and 2013 calls for shorter shorts. I’m a big fan of Chubbie’s Shorts with a 7″ inseam, but the leg opening is as wide as a parachute on me. Any other men’s brands that carry shorter shorts?
Men’s short shorts are indeed back with a vengeance and here to stay.
The dapperQ team also loves Chubbies, as well as their Cargo Embargo (“We at the Cargo Embargo say “NAY!” to Cargo shorts. We embrace thigh liberation for all men.” and motto (“Sky’s out, thighs out.”)
But, not all brands fit every body equally. So, we’ve rounded up some alternatives for you. However, as many of our contributors and readers agree, it doesn’t matter if you get your clothing from the “women’s” or “men’s” section, as long as the clothes achieve your style goals. Fit should be first and foremost. If the shorts could be read as masculine, who cares if some designer wants them sold in the “women’s” section?
