How Short is Too Short? Nicolas Andreas edition

short shorts

Welcome to the short-short edition of How Short is Too Short? We’re pretty sure we could get the word “short” into that sentence another couple of times at least, but we’ve already typed the word “short” so many times in this post that it’s started to lose all meaning. And, you know, it’s a short post. Groan.

Anyway, on to the pressing matter of the shorts, how short they are, and whether that shortness is too short…

The thing is: at first we didn’t even realise these WERE shorts. We thought they were knickers. And because we thought they were knickers, they didn’t really give them much thought at all, beyond the observation that for such big knickers, they sure don’t look too comfortable.

(Seriously, these look REALLY uncomfortable, don’t they? Especially when you consider that the thin, white fabric wouldn’t really allow you to wear much underneath them: they’re so high cut that even a thong might not work.)

Folks, they’re not knickers. As you’ve obviously deduced by now, super-sleuths that you are, these are, in fact, shorts. That you would wear in public. Hopefully after giving them a bit of an iron first.

The question: are they too short? 

Our answer: when they’re short enough to be mistaken for lingerie, YES, they’re too short. GOD.

And your answer?

    When they are short enough and ugly enough to be mistaken for an adult diaper, yes, they are way too short. And ugly.

      Exactly! That’s all I see too! It’s a TERRIBLE colour and fabric choice for a short this short. And the cut is so diaper-like too! It really looks like a cloth diaper.

        Agreed. It’s not really the shortness that’s the issue for me. I can’t get to considering their shortness because I am blocked by considering how fugly and unflattering they are. Would some denim hotpants that actually fit the model be too short if they were this short? Maybe. I don’t know. I can’t visualise them now thanks to this image. Eyeball bleach please.

    Adult baby fetishists should not inflict their sexual fantasies on the unconsenting public. In the case of diapers this ugly, consent to see another person in them should only be accepted in writing.

    Worst of it is, there are plenty of people who’d likely wear these in public. Its the style to walk around half-naked these days, isn’t it?

    I actually thought those were men’s briefs at first glance.

      Yes – but they are actually “art” and not “fashion”. The scary thought is that “fashion” might just decide it needs them…

    Woot! Those shorts are only £200 now, instead of £400. Bargain! (I mean Bargain Bin, really!)
