What the hell happened to men's shorts?

    So I was watching my old school's basketball team playing yesterday and noticed how ridiculously long the shorts have gotten in basketball. But it's not just basketball; lacrosse shorts are just as bad. I've also noticed it in the gym with guys wearing shorts down to their calves or a few inches past their knee. It looks absolutely retarded. Aren't shorts supposed to be functional athletic wear?

    Being in the military and mostly working out with other people in the military I don't really see it as much because we're either in PTUs or wearing functional shorts.

    Example functional shorts)

    Navy SEAL UDT shorts

    French Foreign Legion shorts

    FFL Shorts


    Example nonfunctional shorts)

    These are technically loose three-quarter pants

      I love my cargo shorts. Favorite ones for many reasons.

      But I throw a fit if my shorts aren't at least knee length. They're not THAT low, but short shorts aren't for me.

      I wear cargo shorts that are like an inch above my knee when I'm fishing during the summer just because I actually make use of the pockets.

      But I absolutely cannot stand wearing shorts that are not at least an inch above the knee and that's for shorts I wear with polos or button ups as well as my athletic shorts.

      You have to admit, I like that picture with the ppl from the army. Those ppl probably looked happy there. Hell, another bullshit reason is that my sister says that these "long shorts" are the new style when it actually shouldn't be.

            When I use to play soccer the shorts were fairly short. Some had shorts to the tip of the knees(like me) and halfway down the knees. I wore different shorts all the time and they were different lengths lol one was a long pair going to the top of my knees and the other was a little bit above maybe an inch above the knees or so. I preferred the longer pair (sorry Benvolio xD). Not sure why it felt more comfortable or maybe because the shorter pair would always ride up my ass and I would be pulling them down a bit to release the wedgy that would form when I ran.

            I carry random shit in my pockets lol. My phone, wallet, iPod, a battery or two for my phone, who knows what else I use my pockets lol. They have to be at least knee length for them to feel right.

            I like the breeze I get across my nutsack with my shorts. I only wore basketball shorts until I did my military stint. Now I'm all about feeling that wonderful breeze.

              I'm telling you man just try real shorts. Once you feel that breeze on your balls you'll know what I'm talking about.
