    American Apparel has some nice 6" seersucker shorts. They really only work if you have long legs with well-defined quads.
    Just checked em out. I have pretty nice quads, but relatively short legs compared to my torso... I wish they made em with a 9" inseam.

    Gap Original khakis hemmed to 10" make the best shorts.

    On me that would look really bad. Gap OKs are pretty baggy and 10" would hit below my knee.

    I don't wear shorts unless im fishing so its not a big deal really. I do have a pair of ralph lauren chinos cutoffs I wear sometimes.

    I'm down with shorts when it's fucking hot out. There's no shame in my leg game. I have some old Express dress pants that fit like shit below the knees (ala Cedric the Entertainer style with leg opening too big) that I am planning on getting tailored into shorts with narrower bottom if it's too wide to introduce some dress shorts into the mix and give it a shot.

    I own R&B, Save Khaki, MJK, WWM, and Incotex shorts that I rotate through in the summer. As far as footwear, I usually do some canvas kicks and now have some Spring Court and CP lows that I'll wear. For dressier style/occasion where shorts are still acceptable attire, I wore them with white brick soled bucks last summer in place of my white kicks and liked the look. I actually like the white bucks better with shorts than with pants actually on me at least.

    I can't abide board-short and cargo length pants. They're called "shorts" for a reason.

    I rock the j.crew 5" inseam essential chino short.

    No. Sockless with boat shoes, white saddle bucks, or canvas sneakers.

    I'll second the endorsement of Splendid. I also have a pair of white Trovata cord shorts, which I'm so-so about.

    Last year Amazon had a few nice-looking DKNY shorts for super cheap. Another budget option to consider.
