    As a woman seeing all these dapper guys but rather boring girls my suspicions are confirmed that girls should dress like guys this time of year :)

    a dark pallet for summer worn in an easy yet determined way which indicates the easy yet more thoughtful ideas of the bearers. specifics as rolled shorts ends, watches, bag, sunglasses emphasize as well as compliment the picture which is finally rendered as more of an urban everyday outfit due to the body posture of both .

    I love the shorts idea for men as long as they arn't too short bcause sometimes it gets overdone and it just dosnt work

    i've developed a childhood fear of men in shorts after seeing a particular hairy man without the suitable body wear shorts that were too short.

    i think i'm only starting to get over it now.

    The man in the 1st pic is obviously stylish and looks great, but if it's cold enough for a big, thick cardigan, it's cold enough for pants, no?

    I love how their style is so effortless. Rolled-up shorts just do it for me. Shorts with that wonderful cardigan of his. All so relaxed yet elegant. LOVE.

    There must be something in the air this week. I brought home a pair of shorts for my husband — flat front and cut lean to counteract the baggy cargos he has been wearing.

    Judging from the other comments, I am not the only one who decided to take on the stylist role in respect to their husband. Love is in the air!

  25. green lantern

    August 3, 2009 at 7:16 pm

    Both outfits are perfect lengths for the short and the attire compliments the overall look. I might have exchanged the heavy shawl sweater with an over the shoulder v neck or light cardigan. But still, both subjects look dashing and you captured the essence as you always do!

  26. The Gastro-Lounge

    August 3, 2009 at 7:18 pm

    everything about the first look is perfect. also, I disagree with the comment that shorts and a cardigan should not be worn together. the sleeves are rolled and the cardigan is left open. he looks so relaxed.

  27. Paolo Manaloto

    August 3, 2009 at 7:42 pm

    thats how every man should wear shorts. trim, slim, and not below the knees. well done sart.

    Not really androgynous, rather, innocent; the male version of Lolita. Naughty yet classical and well put-together. What's not to love?

    I cannot begin to express my love for both these pictures! I love them in so many ways for so many different reasons! They are so inspiring!The second picture..I love the length of his shorts and his boat shoes and his bag! His attitude of "I am too cool for society" is definitely displayed and it is part of what I like about it! The first picture…I love how the short are rolled up a bit and how he has white ked type sneakers and especially his very comfy looking cardigan! Love it!

    Interesting the way the first gentleman's shirt melds into his shorts. The navy seems necessary for contrast.

    Also, the hipness of the cuffed look is maximized by the trim, tailored shorts. Very nice.

    I like the looks, but I've never understood the whole sweater with shorts thing. Either you're burning up hot with that sweater on or your legs are freezing with the shorts. It being August, I suspect the former.

  43. Icy

    August 3, 2009 at 9:08 pm

    A man wearing shorts needs to have nice calf muscles. The first guy does, but does the second?

    Inspiring. I've been playing with rolling up some very lighweight old capri pants into shorts like the first gentleman. I think I need some keds too now.

    Shorts that are too tailored and too "tight" look funny.
    They look uncomfortable and they look like underwear. I'm not advocating wearing baggy shorts that go lower than the knee but the guy in the second photo doesnt look very appealing.

  52. Bombshell Kitten

    I love the first one's cardigan. If it fit, I would wear his whole outfit.

    i do love a man in shorts. although i want to steal the first guy's sweater for myself. i think i actually want the entire outfit for myself.

  54. Steffanie Ling

    August 3, 2009 at 11:46 pm

    it all seems for effortless for the gent in the first photo. He doesn't seem to mind, or realize, that he's contradicting himself in his outfit but he knows he looks damn good. I think thats the perennial quality in fashion. aesthetic over practicallity.

    it is so refreshing to see guys understand what a pair of shorts should look like. God knows there's enough guys in board shorts polluting the streets.

    Personally I believe pleated linen shorts are the way to go but yeah… anything except board/hip-hop shorts.

    mmmm I find shorts on men very tricky – I think it's because I'm not use to them.

    I think the second pair here are a little too short.

    The loose fit of the first guy is perfection!!! In fact he should give me his outfit, that cardigan and shorts combo looks so soft and snuggly, just need heels, say Ann D boots. Oh and that would leave the guy in his pants? Im totally ok with that ;-)

    I really like the nonchalance yet very stylish look of both. I would wear both of the outfits, right now actually!!
    I really like the sweater, it can get cool in the summer in the mornings and evenings and I really like wearing long sleeve pullovers and sweaters with the shorts. Most men wear baggy shorts, I like the fitted ones.

    Agree about the incongruence of heavy cardigan and shorts. The sweater would look so much better with some lightweight summer chinos.

    The first man has one of the most seductive looks I have ever seen pictured here.

    Just a practical note regarding the cardigan and short combo… for eastcoast summers with indoor airconditioning the cardigan is a MUST to go from indoors to out (I'm wearing this combo in my office right now).

    both pairs of shorts are very well paired with minimalist footwear (esp. the deck shoe/sneaker hybrid in the second shot). that said, would love to know the exact combination of day-time weather conditions that facilitated the donning of a heavy cable-knit sweater and light cotton shorts…

    Ahhh, wearing your favourite cardi in the summer can be good but I think by the looks of the first one, it might be a touch sweaty! I'm forever umming, and erring over what to wear in the summer when it is hot, layers can be too much in hot weather….kewl tho…

    The first look, the guy was also photographed in Jak and Jill, he is divine . . . he is perfect in every sense possible. The cardigan adds more volume on the top to balance the narrow cut shorts, it's unexpected but refined all at the same time. Love.

    I like the overall look of the second photo best. I'm not sure my legs look good enough for these. And what about socks? I like socks, and I don't mean ankle socks. Could some socks work with shorts like these or do you have to go with out? Would slim argyle be too much? Probably so. Don't laugh at me…

    I'm so glad the stupidly long shorts are going out, nothing like seeing a little nice thigh on a man! :~)

    I really don't understand what is so goo about the first look.

    to me, the sweater looks much to think to ever be paired with shorts. And I have a huge problem with the fact that the shirt and shorts so are the same color, and almost look as if he is wearing a unitard.

    Maybe we just cant get past how hot he is?
