Per usual, Choire is right about everything. No shorts at work. None of those horrible cargo shorts. But nice-looking well-fitting shorts? I TOTALLY SUPPORT men in those shorts. All men? No. Not all men look good in shorts. (And listen, I love jumpsuits, but I cannot wear them! I also cannot wear miniskirts! I also look REALLY BAD in shorts, because I have weird-looking legs. So men who look terrible in shorts, I feel your pain. Not everything looks good on everyone! The world is a great big beautiful place with all kinds of different-looking people and that’s a beautiful thing. So wear what you like and let’s all move on).
But men who have great legs? Ohmygod I have such a tremendous boner for great man-legs. Supposedly in some olden-times men’s legs were intensely eroticized? I can see why. Men: GREAT LEGS (often, not always). So, you know, if you’ve got ’em? WEAR SHORTS. Because goddamn. Men in shorts? MEN IN SHORTS. Yeah.
