I find their club shorts a bit too loose, whereas the 9" Stanton are on the money.

Haven't tried the gap shorts, but for sub $100 Jcrews Stanton's are hard to beat.

As far as I'm concerned, there doesn't have to be a gender connotation to every allusion to children's literature.

Let's solve this fairy tale  debate.  Pickpackpockpuck was right.  The metaphor you were going for is from Goldilocks, not Little Red Riding Hood.  The 11" inseam was "too hot," the 9" inseam "too cold," and the 10" inseam "just right," like the porridge in Goldilocks and the Three Bears.

Really?  I've found the Stantons to be somewhat looser than the club shorts.  Also, not a fan of the Stantons worn-in look.

The worn in look is what I dig on the Stanton's, but too each their own. I don't think either the club or Stanton are slim, but I think Jcrews markets the Stanton as more of their straight leg fit.

@DerangedGoose - I think the Gap shorts I tried on in store were these classic flat front shorts (with a 10" inseam).

They're alright, I own a few pairs of them, but I'm looking to pick up some shorts with a cleaner look for this summer.

I don't mind the socks.  If you were wearing boat shoes or loafers, they'd be a definite no go.

Thanks for catching that. Maybe, I should brush up on my childhood books to keep from coming across like the bartender in Boondock Saints.

I wish I'd found something in that inseam length before going through altering some pairs, but it's good to know for the future. The actual measurement doesn't seem as important (since some people will need longer to reach the same point), but I think what's important is that they just touch the top of the knee. Some people can pull off slightly shorter than that, but once they go past the middle of the knee, shorts tend to look a little out of proportion. I've heard of people wearing slimmer versions in longer lengths, but that's starting to get into capri territory. So, for classic shorts, the top half of the knee seems to be the appropriate range.

I have a pair of officer ones from 3 or 4 years ago, they are still holding strong and I only have that pair and a pair of seersucker ones.

Actually probably going to buy a second pair so I have one to just leave at work on days I ride my bike in.

Love Quoddys, tried some rancourts the other day, way too narrow and just didn't feel as good on a bare foot. Canoe mocs and suede bluchers all day for me during summer. Think I'm finally gonna get the green ones from SW too this summer.

Are driving moccasins worth a look? I always assumed they were essentially the same thing as boat shoes with a different sole

Tassels are terrible for anyone under 50

I agree. Tassel loafers are tough to pull off as a younger person. I have tassels on a pair of kilt-laced spectators, but those only pass the age-restriction because they're just that far out there. Tassels draw a lot of attention to your feet, and that's not always the best.
