When the Temperature Rises…..

Over the last few weeks, I’ve been noticing the best trend of the summer for men’s fashion. Luckily, I’ve been spared seeing it on the general population, but I myself caved in and joined last week. I’ve noticed in my neck of the woods, a booming population of 20 to 30 something metrosexual men, who are wearing these really short shorts with a tank or t shirt. At first, I thought it was ludicrous and a bit disgusting, but I thought about it again. I used to cringe at pictures of my relatives in the 70s with those shorts on, and tight pastel polos. Keeping the polos aside, I do quite enjoy the short shorts. It keeps you a hell of a lot cooler. Mind you, I don’t reccomend men with hairy hairy legs or pasty white legs to try this, but if you think you can pull it off, go for it. I actually went to American Apparel a few days ago, and picked myself up a pair of green short shorts. There’s no better way to beat the London heat. Wednesday morning, returning from the walk in the park, I got a nod of approval from some of the locals. Either that, or it was a look of amazement. Either way, I’ll spare you pictures.

    I think if you are going to write about short shorts on men, you must, must post a picture. I think it’s a law on metblog or something. I would vote that you post a pic of yourself in said green American Apparel getup.

    OK OK. Since you guys DEMANDED. The next warm day, (30 +) I will walk around the city, with my little boy shorts on, and a t shirt, and snap some pics. You’re going to sorely regret this.
