It has been forcefully brought to our attention that some of the men who work at the opium den we call Gawker Media do/don't think the other men around them should wear a specific article of clothing. Since #fashion is usually the domain of #women, we thought we'd offer another thought on this whole issue: you do you, because shorts aren't going to make or break how cool you are.
If anything is to be considered in the case of Men v. Shorts, the man in question combined with the pair of shorts in question matter far more than just the idea of shorts and men combined. In fact, if you're going to go short, go really short.
Also women can wear whatever they want (except things that are ugly of course).
