This is just another example of fashion going through cycles. Short shorts for men were popular from the 1940’s through the 1980’s. After that the trend started to show men’s shorts getting longer and going to the knee or even past it. In general the internet seems to be split about the trend making it’s return. Many have praised the short short while others have shamed men for trying to bring them back. How long will the trend last this time? Only time will tell!
