When someone mentions short shorts nowadays we instantly think of women in tight fitting shorts with little inseams framing their hips and buttocks (perhaps even with a glimpse of a cheek). So why don’t men wear short shorts? To be honest, we used to. Back in the 1960’s and 1980’s short shorts for men were a thing! The style of them might not have been the sexiest back then, but they were there. Men wore them and they were accepted. What happened to men being able to wear short shorts? Why is it that only women can get away with wearing them? To me the answer is, men’s underwear!
Lets take a moment to think about it. Back in the 1960’s and even into the 1980’s men’s underwear were largely either boxers or very simple briefs (tighty whities). Once we began to approach the 1990’s men’s underwear suddenly took a big turn. We started to have longer boxer and trunk styles on the market. Men embraced these changes and there was a downturn to styles of underwear suitable for shorter inseam shorts for men. Did that make short shorts gone the way of the Dodo bird? Hell no! I say Viva the Short Shorts, and Viva the Short Inseam Revolution for men!
Some of you may be wondering, how as men, can we bring short shorts back into our culture and have them readily accepted? First and foremost, they have to look good! The ones at Body Aware cater to everyone’s tastes with an array of options in material and fit. Secondly, we need the right underwear and Body Aware is the answer. To pull off short shorts and have them look super good requires a sexy brief, tanga or dare I even say, thong (yep I said it, and I would totally wear them). Next, we need to consider where we would wear them.
Let’s say you’re going for a jog around town and want to feel good and perhaps be noticed a bit, then this would be a perfect reason. If its cooler while jogging then why not throw a pair of Body Aware leggings under them? Another great spot to wear them would be to the beach or at a pool party. Why not make your wife’s friends drool over you? As you can see, the sky is the limit, but we as men just have to make them the norm again.
Where would you consider wearing short shorts and what style from Body Aware would you choose? For me, I would go with the King Mesh Sports Short with an Essential Ribbed Thong in my wife’s choice of color.
Until next time my friends remember that we are the trend setters and we deserve to feel good!
