But really, I prefer something a bit longer, though not below the knees. Anything longer looks like capris, anything shorter looks like something Bob Saget would wear in hot pink. It's either that or speedos for me, though only when I'm back home. I think you get more odd stares from people if you're wearing shorts there than if you're wearing speedos here.
The pants below the rear do look even more rediculous than the current short style.
I must be the Bob Saget type. I like my shorts 6 or 7 inches above the knee. Keep a better looking tan that way.
You are right about the odd stares here. I usually wear ones 4 to 5 inches on the street. Had a couple guys wearing their pants hanging off their butts snickering at me in a mall once with the short ones. Great ones to talk, eh?
Like you, I also prefer speedos. And everyone at the shore seem cool with them. Go figure.
