    Today, I felt like being a hypocrite. [​IMG] To be fair, I was only going to run an errand at the market.
    shorts - OK for casual wear in hot weather. no socks - never OK.

    Are they grey shorts, or black shorts worn out? A little baggy, but shoes are nice!

    At a red light, I chose to observe my leg, and I was just completely turned off by the sight of so much flesh. I've no clue why anyone would wish to expose their legs in such a fashion. [​IMG] I suppose shorts just aren't my thing.

    It's not just my legs; it's ALL legs. Keep them in your pants, I say.

    Ah. That would be the problem. You're repulsed by the human body.

    Do you have sex with clothes on and lights off?

    Why are no socks never OK? What would you suggest I wear with those loafers? Knee-high stockings?

    Just most human bodies.
    Blind folded is my preferred method. Earplugs, too.

    Wearing shorts to play sports growing up gave me an appreciation for their utility (as well as the muscular legs to pull them off). Having to survive Southern summertime each year gives me an appreciation for their purpose.

    The only shorts I will wear are flat front, straight through the leg (not flaring at the bottom) and hit 2-3 inches above the knee. You'd be surprised how polished you can look with a properly tailored pair of shorts, a crisp shirt and nice pair of loafers.

    I have no issue with wearing shorts. Oddly I dont seem to own a pair that I really like so Im gonna have to get a pair for this summer since I hear its going to be extra hot here in Toronto.

    Its sandals I cant stand. If you're on the beach then its all good, but I dont like seeing people wear sandals downtown in the city. Then you get all those people who insist on wearing their crisp white socks with their sandals which just confuses me because I thought the point of wearing sandals was to keep your feet cool. Why not just wear a pair of canvas shoes with no socks?

    Sandals on the subway is a whole other level.

    Wouldn't you get terrible odors if you wore shoes without socks in the sweaty, summer heat?

    Wearing shorts in the summer = wearing an overcoat in the winter.
