About time.

Long shorts are idiotic. Less freedom of movement and they're hotter.

Don't skip leg day and you're fine.

Maybe short shorts are too short, but if the shorts go halfway down your calf, they're not shorts anymore, they're capri's.

The shorts are too damn long!

Shorts shouldn't come close to touching your knee and they shouldn't be so short that you have to sorry about anything dangling out the bottom.  Most shorts are so long, 12" of fabric would make them pants.

They're getting shorter because CEOs decided to make them shorter.  Fashion?  Less material for the same price?  Who knows, who cares, I'm not some low-brow man of loose morals who wears short trousers.

I like shorts to end a couple of inches over my knee. Golf/board shorts tend to be about my taste. But that's because I like to be able to wear the same « pants » with a t-shirt or a polo.

My Boardwalk bathing suit shorts are perfect for all day wear. They look dressy enough that they don't look like a bathing suit, but I can just jump in the pool between work calls

Typically the rule is, if you're old enough to have worn it the last time it was in fashion, you're too old to wear it again.

Wearing short shorts is great if you're a gym rat with giant, perfectly defined and shaved quads to show off. Not so great if you're the average doughboy with flabby thighs which would be better hidden.

Kinda like those super-short sleeves on so many shirts - great if you have massive bis and tris but looks ridiculous if you have arms like wet spaghetti noodles.

I guess I can no longer wear my fluorescent orange t-shirt, my Ray Bans, and my biking shorts again?

Larger women don't really seem to care that their legs aren't perfect, why should men?

Some of those sleeves can be stupid though.  They're just short enough that they ride up and make it look like I don't have sleeves at all.  It's pretty hard to find things that are just right.

Oh good, I was maybe 6 when they were last in fashion. I don't care for short shorts anyhow.

You can, you just shouldn't wear them at the junior high again.

Most cycling shorts are not short.  Most of them reach near the knee.  You are confusing short with tight.
