Shorts

It’s warm enough out now where I live that guys are starting to trade pants for shorts. It would behoove most guys, however, to remember that shorts are, as Bernard Roetzel puts it in A Gentleman’s Guide to Grooming and Style, “a very dubious proposition stylistically,” and thus must be worn with the greatest of care. If you’re a guy wondering when shorts are appropriate attire, the following image — made using AutoMotivator and Picnik — should, I hope, help clarify things for you.

The chap in the picture, by the way, is Ernest Hemingway.

  1. Thanks for the justification for my “no shorts” policy. I admit I will wear shorts at home, and on the occassional swimming excursion. But beyond that, wearing shorts is a rarity.

  2. Shorts at home are fine. Shorts for swimming, however, are de rigueur. What else are you going to wear? A wet-suit? Speedos?
