It's Summer Time Boys

Because of the fabulous temperatures that we are afforded here in Costa Mesa pretty much all year long, I have a suggestion to the men on campus.
Now I am not talking about "shants" that graze somewhere between the bottom of the kneecap and the ankle. I am talking about honest to goodness shorts.
They don't have to be like the ones on the right. Those are too short.  We don't want to see the whole package.
But take a look at the gentlemen on the far left and you will get an idea of what I am referring to.

AGH!!! Don't encourage guys to wear shorts above the knee! That may be fine for the Vanguard celebs of the world who want to make a scene strutting around campus, but dear God, do not make me look at the rest of the VU community's nasty, hairy upper legs.

On that note, it should be clarified that men should also be grooming properly (we can discuss this later in the blog). If you DO intend to wear shorts and DO have hairy legs, you should take care of that mess. I am confident that many at Vanguard could rock it, it may not be your thing, but I think Lauren Ashley brings up an important point. Up until the late 1980s and early 90s, shorts were always worn to be short, very short, and yet they looked very masculine. It was not until this time that these hideously baggy shorts jumped onto the scene in total rejection of what had been worn for the past few decades. One thing that you are correct about is that short shorts are not for every occasion or every person. This is just a style cue for those who are interested and have the confidence to pull it off (which most people could). Hasta!
