They were too short yesterday.
They're still too short today.
<shrug> fair enough, I didn't feel weird about it until a neighbor asked me a few months ago. Otherwise I'm pretty oblivious.
I don't know of any guys who still wears them other than Richard Simmons.
It would be hard not to, you might as well go full Borat
It wasn't until the 90s that men wore baggy shorts to their knees. These are known colloquially as silkies, and they are or were worn for military physical training. I moticed that recently there have been races and hikes with these as the theme, mostly ex military people or those who want to honor them.
People would "look", and then go about their own business. Anything "unusual" briefly attracts attention. If the shorts were the typical shorts worn today but had a bizarre design, people would "look".
Well, we've seen them a couple of times. This might be the most attention you're going to get from them without adding a little dance or something.
