From NY Post: Sky’s out, thighs out! Prepare to see a lot of dudes in Daisy Dukes this spring.
Legendary fashion houses Prada, Fendi and Missoni, as well as It labels Off-White and Jacquemus, all debuted men’s short shorts for Spring 2019. When describing her shorts-centric collection, Miuccia Prada went so far to describe the ultra-leggy pieces as “miniskirts for men.”
And actor-turned-fashionisto Jeff Goldblum is among the first high-style guys to rock them off the runway.
He was recently featured wearing two different pricey Prada pairs — an $838 white jersey set and $792 daring denim duds (pictured above) — in Dazed magazine’s “The Meaning Of Cult” issue. It’s worth noting that the inseams of those shorts are a teensy 1.6 inches and 2.4 inches, respectively, according to measurements on Matches Fashion.
Evidently, the thigh-skimming trousers have caught the eyes of the folks at fast fashion retailers ASOS and Urban Outfitters. Both companies are selling teensie — and affordable — versions of their own.
Alas, anti-shorts sticklers may be repulsed by this micro trend and cite one of Tom Ford’s iconic fashion commandments: “A man should never wear shorts in the city,” the dapper designer said in 2011. “Shorts should only be worn on the tennis court or on the beach.”
