Summer's here and you know what that means- time to get in shape and pull out those short shorts for men!

Here are some shorts from various Spring 2008 collections (men.style.com):

If I could pull it off, I like the 2nd Rag & Bone and the LV outfits. The longer cut is more appealing for me, I'm not a fan of the hem riding mid-thigh or higher. The simple colours work for me too. Good to see there isn't madras or seersucker on the runway.

The best ones this season in my opinion, are the drop crotch Comme Des Garcons shorts.

i used to hate, too...
i started when the 'trend' started last summer....
never dare before....
and i really liked it..... i wear it basics... with mocassins/bateaux (à la bof, comme tu veux).... i don't wear socks.... only tried once with red ones.... it was funny.... but stop.... i sometimes even did the blazer with it.... but wear it with a cool bag and poignets retroussés... to end up the spring season...

i'm planning to buy more shorts for next summer....
it's very good....... your legs are free....

what do you wear in summer?

by the way, i'm really scared by your avatar....
it's not even funny....

why does donatella scare you? her smile is cute!

during the summer, i like to wear t-shirt and jeans, or a chemise and pants. i normally don't get very hot no matter how warm the weather is.

^i'm not skinny and don't look stupid at all in shorts!
and i think a skinny boy could look ridiculous in the raf simons short you posted....
by the way last season raf simons shorts were better, imo....

for the lenght choice....
well i think for a start Louis Vuittion lenght is ok...

i started with golf-player short.... enough large to put my hands in pockets without looking ridiculous.... this approx. look like this Raf Simons short....


here are some SS07 looks :

sorry for offtopic, but i got those raf ss07 shorts in black (plain black, no check or whatever) and they're my favorite pair ever, love them.
if worn on hips (not like on runway, much lower) they look exactly like a skirt and that's fun. (they're just too big for me to wear in the runway style)

i believe this season we'll see many men wearing a bit baggier and shorter shorts than usual and i can't say i don't like it. just pray their legs are not scary as hell. kills it all : )
