When dad slips on the shorty-shorts, he means business.

Hmm, there is just something inherently un-sexy about a man’s upper thighs.
He’s about to get in that awesome hot tub!
Sweet Jesus, I thought my father was the only white guy to do this! My dad has a pair of those bicycle shorts from the ’70s, only yellow. He wears them around the house all the time, regardless of who might be over. I am sending him this picture!!!
I had to de-lurk for this one! Dad is pretty fit, and I’m sure Mom LOVED the chest hair & short shorts. Who wouldn’t?
I’m an advocate for short shorts on men.
I think dad looks hot. Not very many men could pull this off.
As someone who has been caught in these short shorts many, many times, I do believe they are rugby shorts. Like basketball shorts, they are now longer – around mid-thigh – but my first pairs were alarmingly short. My guess is he’s a former rugger, and maybe that’s why this gentleman is still built like he’s ready to run through a wall.
I thought my husband was the only one that wore socially unacceptable shorts and didn’t know it.
You are not alone Jeri. I have a hunch that your husband also likes to wear white socks and sandals with his shorts, or sometimes even loafers. I know mind does….
Only white tube socks with colored stripes at the top of sock would make this picture complete.
God bless America (with fashion sense, please).
I can promise you that this picture would easily pass as a exhibition-piece in the museum of photographic art. I love it!
You do not want to use the woodchipper while wearing this outfit, trust me.
I actually find this…very attractive.
It’s Ron Burgundy on a Saturday!
thank goodness its not Ron Jeremy!!!
I remember President Bill Clinton jogging in shorts that were this length-(shudder)
He kind of reminds me of that guy from Barney Miller (Steve Landesberg: Det. Arthur Dietrich). Maybe it is the glasses?
Yes! That’s why I keep thinking he looks familiar! Good job!

Who wears short shorts?
We wear short shorts!
Is that a little string that I spy at the waist band?? The dude is wearing his bathing suit. My dad always wore the same khaki colored swim suit.
We like short short……if you dare wear short shorts use nair for short shorts…….who else remembers this jingle? I don’t think he used any hair removal products by the looks of things.
I was just singing that in my head…lol
The jingle was actually a riff on an old R&R song from the mid-50s. The Royal Teens sang it. Pretty awful.
Doing work, Son!!!
He IS in good shape, but those are dangerously short. How on earth did he stash his goods in these?
I may be spittballin’ here, but I’m pretty sure even Chuck Norris is afraid of him.
I so thank the gods that my dad never wore anything like that. In fact, you’d never find my dad shirtless unless he was in a pool.
So what. It’s probably a photo from when shorts were shorts (ie pre-Jordan).
My only problem with this is the haircut and glasses. I love shorty shorts on dudes.
there’s a point(pardon the pun) when shorts can be too shorty…
ummmm yeah, when the POCKETS are longer than the shorts, it’s a 911 to the fashion police

You guys are cracking me up! Pockest are longer than shorts, i noticed that too ! Love the Schwimmer comment.
Ha, I love it!
The dude IS in pretty good shape, but he’s def not my type! I like short, dark and handsome!
Only thing missing are the white socks pulled up to the knees with red stripes at the top and a pair of loafers….
He seems to be saying “Only REAL men who live in log cabins and have shaped shrubbery have the confidence to wear these shorts!”
Shorts so short the inside of the pockets hang below are all the rage for trendy teenage girls in Australia at the moment. I reckon this guy is the trend setter.
That was how men in the 80s (in the US) wore their shorts! Yuck. Anyone else remember OP shorts?
That being said, I do like to see a little leg on men. I am not that fond of the “shorts to below the knee” look.
I am definitely seeing the trend here in southern Cali! ugh…
Yowza! That’s a lot of leg showing….
Thanks Mandie for bringing back the word “Yowza!” Love it! Now I know what to say when I’m at a loss for words in an occasion such as this!!
Aaaaaagggg his pockets are hanging out!! LOL
About 15 years ago a co-worker friend of mine had a pair of shorts like that, and he used to go jogging in them, sometimes with a shirt and sometimes without. He could never understand why people stared and giggled (and sometimes threw rocks) at him. I never could convince him that it was the shorts.
