Capris for men, aka "manpris" - Page 3

What practical advantage do they have over shorts? If it's hot enough to want to expose your legs you're probably better off in shorts and if it's not you're probably better off in pants you can roll up or down. I guess I don't see any need for them since they often look worse than either shorts or pants would in a given situation.

False. Shorts look really bad most of the time.
I'd definitely prefer a pair of tapered pants like that last picture had.

But agreed with unc, that chunky sweater with rolled chinos is pretty lol worthy.

MEN: Crew neck

Occasionally v-necks are considered acceptable for men, but generally only if the neck line is so high up that it nearly resembles a crew neck. Look at BR v-neck tees for an example of what it has to look like in order to avoid being mocked by the "that's gay" crowd within some social circles.

Japanese fashion is more interesting since it is not as heavily constrained.

I'm like a woolly mammoth from the neck down. Chest hair might be your answer as to why the Japanese can get away with showing more chest. In all my time in Korea, I've yet to see a dude who looks like he was born in a Hemingway sweater, thus the lower cut tees have a place.

Prefer the look of rolled-up chinos or similar pants - if they have a proper taper going, it looks good. Agree with Uncontrol - calling 3/4s universally gay is a pretty awful way of putting it. Good looks with capris exist (even in the US), they're just exceedingly rare. Yes, Japanese dudes go nuts for capris during the summer. I prefer shorts or the aforementioned chinos in a light fabric, but I certainly don't walk around thinking everyone looks gay (that would qualify literally 30-40% of under-30 guys you see on the streets in Japan during the hotter months).

why does something being constrained make it less interesting?


re: capris, i like loose linen ones with a draw string when lounging about in summer.

that doesn't work because he's also cropped

we're talking about stuff that goes at least shin level, not ankle

Capris for men are alright; they just fit into that category of clothes that most companies produce awfully and people pull of horribly. Think cargo shorts and black dress shirts.

I google searched and only found these decent pictures.





Not sure if it means anything, but Nadal and James are world-class athletes who can look good in anything. But they wear it sporty and casual, and it works for their physiques.

Where do you live? Unless it's a deep v-neck that extends halfway down your sternum, I haven't met anyone who thinks v-necks are gay. Wide u-necks are a different story however.

Exactly what I'm gonna wear with raw denim every day in 90% humidity this summer. Probably picking up some wide u-necks, too.

I find this completely unnecessary and it leans towards the feminine side....Just don't do it...
