Guys, if you are doing a clothing purge this fall, put those long baggy cargo shorts in the “donate” pile. Short shorts are the new khakis. Show off those gams!

According to social media polls, the best length for men’s shorts is . . . a five-and-a-half-inch inseam.  That means they stop well above the knee.

The more traditional length for men’s shorts is a seven-inch inseam.

If you are skeptical, don’t be. Lots of women now say saying short shorts make men looked taller and flatter your legs.
