The plus side of men wearing shorts in the office in the summer is that it opens the way to women wearing shorts in the office &c.

i think it probably depends how short the shorts are.

I don't know. When I hear the term "men in shorts" I'm reminded of the terrible image of Rio Ferdinand wearing denim hotpants which I was forwarded over yesterday *shudder*.

Assuming it's the same one I've seen, isn't the real horror in that picture the crop-top?

I have just seen this. It's not just a crop top, it's very very clearly a ladies one, and they are ladies shorts. Was it for a bet?

Yes. I am the reason all men should be banned from shorts.

If men look scruffy in summer too, it makes women who have come to work in some sort of underwear/beach/laura ashley combo look smarter.

I was once told off for coming into work barefoot.

I once had to do an exam where another student's horrible feet were the only thing in my eyeline. I don't approve of feet much.

I've just tried to find out what a toe spider is and have discovered lots of tarantulaesque things:

Of course, I work in academia, where just about anything goes. If there's nothing formal happening, the younger men tend towards shorts. And I walk around barefoot.

I'd be in shorts today (and too cold) if I hadn't been in various meetings all day.

There's no "Depends how nice their legs are" option, therefore I can't vote.

NO NO NO NEVER SHORT TROUSERS
Trousers MUST end between 1/2 and 1 inch from the ground, unless they're flared jeans or loon pants when they should touch the ground.
END OF

There are a number of factors - length of shorts, size of dude, how much of a prick the dude is, whether the dude is some sort of fuckin' douche - lots to consider.
