    I will be the first to admit that I’m not the most hip fellow around.

    But really, why all the hate for jorts? I went out last night and was reminded, again, that apparently they’re uncool.

    Sometimes I don’t feel like wearing short-shorts. Sometimes I don’t feel like wearing cargo shorts. So yeah, I go for the jorts. I don't see much else out there in that length of short, at least where I shop. (That's for another thread, I guess.)

    For real, I don’t get the hatred. Now, get off my goddamn lawn.

    You should move to Gainesville. You'll fit right in.

    What are short-shorts?

    They don't make khaki shorts or non short-shorts (yeah, what are those?) where you live?

    Are your jorts acid-washed and/or pleated?

    I don't know what they are, but here's someone who wears them:

    I can't picture jorts without conjuring up images of gold chains, tank tops, Avalanche trucks and feathered hair.
    And Dyno's right - invest in khakis. Can't go wrong.

    You don't have to answer this if you don't want to, but I'd be interested to know how, exactly, did the hate manifest itself?

    But that's the thing. I don't think George Clooney could "own" jorts. It's just not possible.

    Many things feel pleasant to wear. Options are a good thing. If we all wore what we wanted to, Wicked might show up at work in a denim tutu. We have to draw the line somewhere.

    Why can't I wear my fucking banana hammock to cover a goddamn high school baseball game? Why is this so socially unacceptable? WHYYYYYYYY?
