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*.
yes, they'd count as TOO SHORT and unacceptable. when i rule the world.
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?
tbf I'm kind of against men wearing shorts anytime though.
yes, this. especially me wearing shorts.
Although the thought kind of excites me, Steve.
FURTHER GOOD REASON ;)
unless you wish to be blinded by the pastiness...
Yes. I am the reason all men should be banned from shorts.
but but but I have GREAT legs!
Please note that I work in an extremely casual environment and am responding for this particular office.
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.
and the really important question is about sandals and toe spiders which is NO.
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.
depends if it looks gross or not. i am wearing shorts now because i have AWESOME LEGS
I have no say in the matter, it's already started in my office...
Shorts shouldn't be worn by anyone, ever.

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.
Yeh, but you read philosophy in country parks - you're a BEATNIK
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.

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.
but usually bloke not on holiday wearing shorts is ....
...in Sam's case, feeling way too hot to wear trousers.
