    Nice legs!!!!

  2. Honey says:

    Hmm, there is just something inherently un-sexy about a man’s upper thighs.

  3. Ione Knobloch says:

    He’s about to get in that awesome hot tub!

  4. Missy says:

    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!!!

  5. Blu says:

    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?

  6. lucy says:

    I’m an advocate for short shorts on men.

  7. heatherd says:

    I think dad looks hot. Not very many men could pull this off.

  8. Tom says:

    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.

    • anne says:

      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.

  11. AH says:

    I can promise you that this picture would easily pass as a exhibition-piece in the museum of photographic art. I love it!

  12. Nigel Goodnow says:

    You do not want to use the woodchipper while wearing this outfit, trust me.

  13. Sheila says:

    I actually find this…very attractive.


  14. rachie says:

    It’s Ron Burgundy on a Saturday!

  15. Anne says:

    I remember President Bill Clinton jogging in shorts that were this length-(shudder)

  16. Putts says:

    He kind of reminds me of that guy from Barney Miller (Steve Landesberg: Det. Arthur Dietrich). Maybe it is the glasses?

  17. Jeff says:

    Preparing to shoot the climactic cellphone scene in “The Anthony Weiner Story”.

  18. Jesse says:

    Who wears short shorts?
    We wear short shorts!

  19. Mimi says:

    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.

  20. heather says:

    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.

  21. PW says:

    Doing work, Son!!!

  22. Ginger says:

    He IS in good shape, but those are dangerously short. How on earth did he stash his goods in these?

  23. yokozbornak says:

    I may be spittballin’ here, but I’m pretty sure even Chuck Norris is afraid of him.

  24. Barbara says:

    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.

  25. JT says:

    So what. It’s probably a photo from when shorts were shorts (ie pre-Jordan).

  26. Molly says:

    My only problem with this is the haircut and glasses. I love shorty shorts on dudes.

  27. jackie says:


    • Janet the Frito Bandito says:

      Ha, I love it!

      The dude IS in pretty good shape, but he’s def not my type! I like short, dark and handsome!

  28. Michelle says:

    Only thing missing are the white socks pulled up to the knees with red stripes at the top and a pair of loafers….

  29. helen says:

    He seems to be saying “Only REAL men who live in log cabins and have shaped shrubbery have the confidence to wear these shorts!”

  30. smurfie77 says:

    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.

    • Hello in NC says:

      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.

    • rachie says:

      I am definitely seeing the trend here in southern Cali! ugh…

  31. Mandie says:

    Yowza! That’s a lot of leg showing….

  32. Jody says:

    Aaaaaagggg his pockets are hanging out!! LOL

  33. King Lerxt says:

    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.
