With laughter, yes, they do look silly. But, these shorts are an old pair of Patagonia hiking shorts which , for practical purposes, have very roomy legs. Admittedly, not stylish. (They were perfect, a couple of years ago, when hiking in the White Mountains.) If I was going somewhere special, I'd wear a more slim fitting pair of shorts. FYI, I was just messing around in the garden and hence, the beat up old pair of mocs. Apologies if they offended you. By the bye, have we ever seen a post featuring pictures of yourself and your attire?
