cheers man, youve got to love the dogfish sales, seem to go on for months though Laughing out loud

Short shorts arent a good look for me, looking for something slimish and around knee length.

Anyone know any shorts that'd be any good for someone who's vertically challenged, like me, or is the only real option, get them hemmed?

Please advise.

I also wore shorts today, with a polo shirt and really beaten up Cons, to wash my car. I'm gonna clean the inside of it tomorrow and then get it up on Autotrader asap.

I'm still wearing my shorts now, actually, but I'm about to change because I'm going for a run and would rather wear jogging bottoms.

Sol, read my post and note how boring and uninteresting it is. That's what it's like when you post your shite.

so true

cut off jeans are so shit, you will intantly regret it, when battered jeans were all the rage a while back i cut some duffer denim (selvedge) into shorts, they looks shit and i could never get the legs the same length

i have never seen anyone pull off cut off jeans or jean shorts they just don't work

i see summer as a time to escape denim

anybody see that simpsons where homer makes his trousers into cut offs - classic

basically if you`re only gonna have one pair of shorts and rock them a lot this summer then you should shell out for the maharishis if you like them.

Whats stupid is paying 40pounds for something you think is just average. Get something you can enjoy for a few summers even.

a friend of mine who had recently come out of the closet made some cut offs to wear to mardi gras. We only found out because we found the leg cut offs.

When we questioned him about it and convinced him to model the shorts for us, we noticed he cut em so short the pockets were hanging down the bottom of the leg like homer's Laughing out loud
