I don't mind shorts, I just don't like them in the wrong context. You're in the right one. Wearing them when it's not damn hot out? Bad. 85 is arbitrary -- I guess they're okay in 75, but I'd rather wear light trousers.
I know what the weather's doing in the city. It does the same thing here. I wore shorts yesterday, and I'll wear them tomorrow. Only reason I'm not in them today is that I had to wear socks.
