What is ACTUALLY considered "men's short shorts?"

Might sound like a stupid question, but I’m genuinely sort of confused. Some people when they say "men’s short shorts" mean like shorts that are as short as women’s shorts with like a 3 inch inseam that stops slightly below the ass; while others mean anything that’s even remotely above the knee, with like a 9 inch inseam that stops just slightly above the knee.

    picrel is what i regard as short shorts, basically the first thing you described. the 9" inseam stuff is just regular shorts. because if the shorts with the 9" inseam are short shorts then what are regular shorts?

      Ah…good to know. I can’t really argue with that. Though some people I know would argue that mid-calf capris are "normal shorts." Usually in a cargo short, basketball short, or board short style. But those people don’t take fashion seriously anyway.
