Jorts: An Official Statement.


My long-time readers may be shocked today to see a pair of jorts front and center on my blog. Not just any jorts, no no. Men's jorts. I've spent most of my blogging existence disagreeing with men's jorts. In hindsight, I had no actual reason other than maybe that some guys wear jorts that are darn near capris and also have a utility loop for a hammer or something. I mean, THOSE are the denim devils that caused the curse of the jorts.

 That is until a beautiful Sunday morning in Priest Lake, ID... my friend Kyle strolled out of a cabin in
jorts + stripes. 

And he looked awesome.

I mean, I am not saying I'm some sort of turncoat who changes their mind weekly. I tend to make a clothing evaluation and hold on to it dearly until I die [case in point- HATS]. What I am saying here is that I finally saw a jorts-outfit worthy of my approval. SO, my official statement on the matter is that men are free to wear jorts all summer long. And if it is jorts + stripes, then by all means... go bananas. Because this is a great look for guys. Well done, Kyle. You took a pair of jorts and officially made me not just a jorts believer, but a supporter. Pretty groundbreaking.

  1. "Groundbreaking," you crack me up!
    I think the men's capri look you're referring to is "shants" my brother introduced me to that term and it makes me laugh every time.

  2. Oh yes, "shants" as Rox stated are a definite no. Jorts on guys can be pretty hot though as your friend demonstrates.

    1. I think he definitely makes them work. And it is a huge plus they aren't shants.

  3. I think the attractiveness of jorts are completely reliant on the attractiveness of the man wearing them. Some men can really rock them. :)
