    If you wear them to an amusement park or car show then nothing but wear plain ones for things like a summer outdoor lunch.

    They are shorts. No grown man should ever walk around in public wearing shorts like a gay or an 8 year old. hecking infantile manchildren. Have some shame and dignity. And then you wonder why there is a "crisis of masculinity" in the west. It’s not just about doing "manly" jobs and "manly" activities. Everything, no matter how small and insignificant it may look, matters. The way you dress, the way you present yourself, your demeanor, your style of speaking, your habits and lifestyle, all decide your level of masculinity and maturity.

    If you dress like a dumb little kid, you will feel like a kid and act like a stupid little kid. And so will your children and other people who will get influenced by you one way or another. Even the women around you will perceive you as nothing more than a manchild, rather than a grown man they can respect and count on.

            You’re not a WW2 basic b***h infantry zogbot fighting a war in some desert. You’re a homosexual chud (probably living in a temperate country) trying to find an excuse to flash your legs.

            Every single person in that photo looks like complete shit, why should the fat sperg be singled out for having pockets on his shorts?

            Who’s singling him out for having pockets? I am anti-shorts, not just cargo shorts. That gay near the door in checkered shorts is even worse. It’s like he literally just crawled out of the bed and showed up to the movie theater in boxers and flip flops.

            There should be a dress code for entering any public place, whether it’s a restaurant, movie theater, airplane/airport, or a market, mall or grocery store. it’s the only way to get these shameless degenerates to present themselves in a civilized way and show some respect to their fellow citizens.

            Sorry, dude, but that’s literally high school sex core. If you dress any differently than that you’re not getting any.

            The least you should do is wear clothes that fit and are clean. And they shouldn’t be lounge wear, sports wear, or something you wear to bed. It should look like you put some effort into dressing up and that they are one of your better clothes. Even a pair of jeans and t-shirt will do (non-distressed and no graphics), but they should look like the kind of clothes that you take care of, not the ones you always roll around in everywhere in the house.

            There’s a reason why people wore their "sunday best" to church. It’s not because you want to look fancy to everyone around you, but because you want to show respect to god and your fellow church goers by appearing presentable and put together. That being there in their company matters to you. It also reflects that you are a disciplined guy who doesn’t treat everything flippantly.

            Same goes for women. Women who dress well and in a modest, non-whorish style will automatically attract men, not simply for their body or because they’re "hot", but because they will send the message that she has her mind and life in order, and is wifeable.

            >STFU nigga ain’t nobody got time for dat! Wear whatever your b***hass wants!
            Yeah, that’s why western countries are turning into shitholes. This atomization, shamelessness, and the complete loss of any sense of community. Today people are just a bunch of consoomer golems who just happen to live next to each other, not because they’re part of a civilization that they built and are sustaining together.

            nigga, it’s not that deep. I use shorts to show off my legs, and because I like ventilation near my crotch area during the summer, or would you see it as less childish if I had speedos, instead of shorts? How exactly does wearing shorts = unmasculine, or manchild? Ok, I get it if you’re wearing some cheerleader’s booty shorts that looks gay AF, but no guy is wearing that. So the problem is…what exactly? Did your beta stepdad wear shorts and he pisses u off so now you have a chip on your shoulders about grown men who wear shorts

            I love when stupids like you pretend to have a grasp of history. Do you unironically think everyone before the year 1950 or something dressed nice all the time?

          • Anonymous says:

            Again, this isn’t even about dressing nice and fancy. This is about reaching the bare minimum level of dressing like a grown man and not a manchild who looks like a drooling stupid with Down’s Syndrome. And yes, not just before the 50’s but even until the 2000’s, most people dressed according to their age and in a dignified way, because they still had some sense of shame left in them. Modern culture is the culture of the shameless and demoralized. People today think being a shameless "muh individualist" is something "cool" and brave and not degenerate.

            Agreed. In the 1970s, like the pic you posted, men simply did not wear shorts in public. They were for wearing at home or during workouts only. Pic related, some gym bros from the 1970s in their at-home gym.

            You can wear them at home, or at the pool, or the beach. Maybe in the woods when camping or hiking (although cargo pants would be much better). But not out in the streets during regular days. Too casual and childish. They make you look like an overgrown child. It’s even worse if you’re not in shape, which most people aren’t.

            Could you explain why it’s okay to wear shorts in the wilderness but not in public?

          • Anonymous says:

            I wouldn’t wear them in the wilderness either. I need proper protection for my legs from bugs and uppity critters. But since some people like to do the safaricore, it’s fine. Especially if you’re going to wade through streams and marshy areas. Wearing pants that are half wet at the legs is disgusting and weird.

          • Anonymous says:

            You shouldn’t, but at least it’s understandable in special circumstances like at the pool or beach where your pants can get wet and dirty and feel disgusting to wear when they’re half wet. But everywhere else, you will look like a manchild in shorts.

            Oh so wearing shorts to the park or playground when I’m chasing my kids around is a no? You’re just making arbitrary rules when everyone with a brain knows when to not wear shorts.

          • Anonymous says:

            Yes, it’s a no. Wear some joggers or something. It’s literally in the name. You can even buy cargo pants in joggers fit these days. You’re not a soccer player. You don’t need shorts to play with your children in a playground. If anything, proper pants will provide some decent protection to your legs against scraping and cuts in case you trip and fall or just bump into something while running around and playing with your children.

            I have no need for the attention of females who don’t value shame and dignity. Neither does any other man with even a modicum of self-respect.

            Imagine being European. Australians and South Africans have been wearing shorts for at least 100 years.

            And what’s the state of Australia and South Africa today?

      You’re damn right I’m trying to show my legs off, I’ve played rugby for years and I look good. If I’m out at a bar I will show off as much of my body as possible because shockingly women like men who are in shape. You can cover up to hide your lack of effort as much as you like, the rest of us will be out having fun.

          For added comfort make sure you get the right material for the shorts too. Linen, seersucker, flax, tropical weight wool and raw silk are all extremely light and breathable with the added bonus of having some texture for visual appeal.

          If it’s really hot and humid out, apply a little Gold Bond to your balls, ass and thighs. Completely eliminates swamp ass, odor and chafing, and I do mean completely. Start with the regular powder if you aren’t used to it, the menthol in the heavy duty version is amazing but might be a little bit of a shock if you aren’t used to it. I use the menthol powder, once the moisture hits it feels like I’m dipping my nuts in a snowbank and I experience legitimate joy.

        This is bare basic clothing habits, not fashion. Acting your age and dressing accordingly isn’t fashion, it’s common sense and maturity. If you’re going to walk around looking like a literal hecking stupid by dressing like a little boy, then nobody should take you seriously.

          Did your gf get stolen by a man in shorts anon? There is literally no other reason to be this upset about SHORTS of all things lmao. We do lots of things children do, doesn’t make them all childish. Most men don’t need to take purposeful steps to not appear like a child bc for the most part it happens naturally. The fact that you feel it necessary to make this arbitrary distinctions over what makes you an adult just points to you being insecure with your own masculinity, some might even call it cope.

      Then wear some loose fitting linen or cotton drawstring pants like a grown man, you gay. Just because it’s summer doesn’t mean you have to dress like a child. Their fabric is thin and breathable, perfect for summers, unlike cargo or even chino shorts which are made of thick and rugged fabric that are horrible for hot weathers.
