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.

I am not a fan of jorts. However, I've come to realize if we all followed every rule every person has about every piece of clothing, we'd likely all be wearing the same pair of not-too-baggy but not-too-tight slacks every single day for the rest of our lives.

I'm not sure I understand the resistance against shorts in general though. Even in Michigan, a state that's only hot for half of the year, it seems as if everyone wears shorts in the summer and I cannot imagine it any other way. I admit I'm a little concerned about how I look to others, but not to the point of being incredibly uncomfortable by wearing pants every day in 90 degree weather unless I'm at the beach.

When I hear the term "jorts" I always think of small jeans that were cut off...the trailer park look...

I live in Texas and I rarely wear shorts ever...I work all day, and I don't play sports any more....the only time I wear shorts is when I decide to work out or go swimming...it really doesn't even make things that much cooler, in fact all the road workers and lawn workers wear jeans and long sleaves during the summer because it traps your sweat in making it cooler...I believe soldiers are taught that as well...if ever stuck in bad heat keep your clothes on, don't strip.


Now that I have a son that will change soon I think, as I will be involved in his sports and outdoor activities.

Florida is a different beast because of the insane humidity.

I think that might be the one state that shorts are an absolute must...its tropical there.

And Hawaii I guess

Hmm, to each their own, I suppose. Personally, after a long summer's day work, even if I work indoors, I cannot wait to change into something with breathability once I get home. Perhaps that also has to do with the fact I do not have air conditioning in my house, though I find myself doing the same even when in an AC environment.

Still, only speaking for myself, I cannot imagine watching the news on a Saturday morning, seeing it's going to be 97 degrees that day, then consciously opting to put on a pair of jeans or pants for a my trip out to the grocery or otherwise.

Also, before you brought it up, I'd never heard that road and lawn workers wore jeans and long sleeves because it kept them cooler. My understanding was always that they wore those outfits to cover their entire body, hence protecting them from the sun, since they're working outside all day every single day, and also to a lesser extent perhaps to prevent injury from debris.

And just a theory, but I've heard stripping when extremely cold is a sign of hypothermia - perhaps it's the same for those suffering from heat stroke or heat exhaustion, which may be why soldiers are told to keep their clothes on (sounds iffy though). Maybe it once again has to do with exposing their skin to the sun for long and dangerous periods of time. I just feel like trapping sweat is the last thing one would want to do. If sweat is just lingering and not evaporating, I feel as though your body would have a more difficult time cooling itself, which is why humid days are so miserable.

this. khaki shorts are perfect for hot weather. those are the only shorts i will wear. when it gets to 110 weather here in phoneix, the heat still remains in the evning and you have to be some out of town fool to be walking in jeans out in the street.
