And I'm talking about those short ones that we see pictures of from the 80s that make us cringe. It is strange but not unexpected to see fashion trends evolve. High waist jeans, midriff tops, and now guys wearing short shorts. I only know it is a trend because I'm seeing them on teenaged boys each day while I work in a high school. There were longer cargo-style shorts, then there were reeeeeeeeally long shorts, and now we are back to the short shorts on guys. I cannot report that I find it to be a good look. Wasn't back then and still isn't now. Same with the high waist pants. I honestly never thought I'd see these little men's shorts come back in style. . . or that bros would embrace them. Oh well. I'll just have to internally cringe.

I know what you mean since seeing anyone who wears very short pants in my opinion just wants some attention.

I remember when Johnny Depp would wear crop tops. I see a lot of guys wearing it. They say that they do that to stop toxic masculinity but I don’t know.

Haha, I looked good in them when I was 6 but I have noticed that too, mens pants keep gettting tighter, buy Dickies if you want to go back to that cool baggy 90 styles men. Hell I even tried on a few brands said baggy or loose what ever they call it now and they are so tight and I am skinny. Now I am all hairy and white no one wants to see skimpy shorts and not a rock star no need for tight pants, not sure what the world is thinking anymore. Even Basketball the Chris Webber hip hop shorts are getting smaller and smaller and he did that in college, I cannot wear these tiny things men need room so he made the hip hop style of baggy.

There was a television show that was called Reno 911, if I remembered right. There was a character on that show who was a police officer and he wore short shorts. It was horrible!

All-styles come and go. I think those short dresses for women are disappearing I haven’t seen the shortest for awhile.

I saw that trend here about four years ago and I told my son I didn't want to see him in those short shorts! Fortunately, he wasn't into them.

Just remind yourself, it won't last. Something new will come along and the kids will switch to that.

The style that really gets me is the pants, that look like they're falling down! The seat-end is hanging down by their knees:( Extremely short shorts on a man, those look awful!

Yuck! I can't believe that they are allowed in the school. All I can remember is having to wear a skirt every day; and the boys had to wear long pants.
