Teach an old schooler about "Jorts"
 
Alright, most of have probably seen the Blake Griffin commercial making fun of jean shorts aka jorts.

I admit I am an older dude so I might not be with the times so to speak and still keeping it real 1995 style. But I don't get the jort hating thing.

Whats so wrong with jean shorts anyways young fellas?

This is assuming the "Jorts" are not cut-off, not too short, tight or too baggy or loose, etc. No one likes dudes in cut-offs, Daisy Duke style, regardless of material of the said short shorts!

Replace Jeans with any other material it will be just the same no?

Checking out the barely dressed ladies for instance would be a good time to be outside?

That looks terrible man. And it's zoomed in, to take away from the stupidity of a full sized shot...

You want shorts, you wear some nice light shorts or light khakis with a pair of clean polos shoes or some nice flip flops

Fixed. Outside of playing ball or being at the gym there's never a reason for a grown man (read: post college) to wear shorts.

I dunno man, when I go on vacation down south, I like having the option of wearing shorts here and there man....real light, gives your balls airflow, you can keep a money clip and your keys in the pockets, and it's light as hell and you can wear them with flip flops if you around a beach.....to me, some shorts are necessary, you just gotta find the right ones

Disagree. There's places too hot for anything but shorts.
Unless you like having your lower body all sweaty.

Beach is one thing I suppose, guess I may've overstated on the "never a reason." I'm on a cruise or a beach vacation that's fine, that's true. I was talking about general everyday life. If a guy can't handle wearing a pair of cotton slacks on a workday, where unless he works outside he's outdoors what, 15 minutes?, he needs to suck it up. Regardless of how much a guy may admire his calves in the mirror with his ankle socks while giving fist pounds, it is not a good look, be a professional. Look good, feel good. Showing off some hairy ass lower legs does not look good.

All that said, if you're married or have a long term old lady, who gives a shit. But you'll look like a dork.
