The Man Shorts

I’m very much admiring the man shorts. I would like to think this was shot in Socal and so the J.CREW-like locales are an easy reach for me.  Here’s a glimpse of new england/nantucket island/east coast styles of the myriad of ways a man can wear his cut-off shorts.

(Clockwise from left: Cotton stretch jeans (cut to a seven-inch inseam), $68 at American Apparel; Levi’s 527 jeans, cut to a seven-inch inseam, $68 at levis.com; Striped cotton shorts (cut to a seven-inch inseam), $49.50 at Banana Republic; Steve Vintage plaid cotton cutoffs (cut to a six-inch inseam), $62 at Item in Provincetown; Obedient Sons khaki cutoffs (cut to a six-inch inseam), $128 at Item; Weathered sweat pants (cut to a five-inch inseam), $79.50 at Polo Ralph Lauren)

The boyf pulls off denim cut-offs very, very well. The key is lusty calves.
