Are these shorts too flamboyant to wear out? I'm 23

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 

Looking to grab a pair and a few friends from college keep telling me to pick them up *they are in frats what a surprise bigstar[1].gif* Seen a few reviews on them being pretty comfortable even though they don't look that comfortable at all. Anyone here at all ever wear these or hear of em? http://genuinegents.com/the-chubbies-shorts/

 

Was thinking these to go along with a second watch *got the Seiko 5 from the list*

and a new pair of sperrys *currently have the Sahara colored ones* for 57.22

Seems there are mixed feelings about these shorts after a few post i've been reading though ;x

 

 

Cheers!

For your time, a pic of me and my girlfriend!

of course it comes down to personal preference, but those are nastyyy.......to me

 

what does your girlfriend think?

This question would probably be best posed in the streetwear forum, but I don't see anything "flamboyant" about stripes, ginghams, or especially solids.

A friend of mine loves these shorts. They aren't my style, but it all comes down to personal preference. If you like the way they look and fit, go for it.

I wear them and like them very much. Flamboyance depends on which pair you buy.

You have to have nice legs to wear them, I might add.

Dunno. Wonder how they would look on a 59 year old suffering from slight corpulence?

Are normal shorts known for being *uncomfortable* in some way?

Hmm well actually my friends say they are great! Haha he told me he would lend me a pair and the thing is I work out alot and I have legs I don't mind showing off :) *excuse the boasting* It's just some people would see the super short shorts as a bad thing I guess.. I guess I could post this as "street wear" to see what they would think. I'm thinking of getting a pair. Definitely not the 'mericas though crackup[1].gifa little to out there for me

if you must wear shorts, do not wear those. I have not been in the market for shorts since I joined SF but consider browsing the WAYWT (what are you wearing today, mens casual) thread for ideas.

These shorts are 100% casual wear. You're in your early 20's. Ignore this advice.
