Men over 40, 50 wearing shorts?

I think if you have the legs and the thighs to justify it, shorts are acceptable at any age. Opinions please.

Well, at least it's not another Trump thread.

Why not? Some people look better the more of their bodies are covered -- at any age.

I'm not much of a shorts man, so have no personal stake in the matter, but so long as your legs don't look like old purplish-bruised hairless ball skin stretched taut and shiny like some perverse drum, I don't mind.

by Anonymousreply 2May 10, 2024 3:07 PM

If you're fit and in reasonably good shape then yes you can get away with shorts at pretty much any age.

R2 is right, I've seen people in their 20's that really need to be fully covered (and a considerable acreage of material will be needed)

by Anonymousreply 3May 10, 2024 3:12 PM

So long as where you are is shorts appropriate. Don't go to a funeral thinking black shorts are appropriate. If it's shorts appropriate and it's warm enough you wear what you want. Who cares what others think? Fuck 'em. They don't feed you; you don't need them.

I don't care who you are, if you are out in PUBLIC, make sure your ass, dick, balls, vulva or pubic hair is not visible or hanging in shorts. Shorts should not resemble diapers. We don't need to see all that.

If you are inside or in a private area (spa, pool, laying out, sunning your buns) then go ahead and show yer stuff if ya want to.

I go back and forth on this. I would never wear shorts in LA or NYC - you'd look like a tourist, but in the south and warmer climates and think they're fine when worn properly. And anyone can wear shorts, as long as they are wearing the right shorts. You have to be thin in order to wear the shorter styles.

If I were given the power to make rigid rules that would be observed closely, I could find a few hundred or so very easily before giving even a fleeting thought to shorts

by Anonymousreply 45May 10, 2024 8:19 PM

If you're in a place where people wear shorts then you can wear them too. Period. The kind/style depends on your body type and age. I despise long shorts, as they are unflattering to just about everyone. The word "short" is in there for a reason! To me, the far bigger sin is inappropriate footwear with the shorts. Shorts are casual wear, so they require casual shoes. Socks, if worn, should be ankle-length -barely visible if at all. Sandals are perfectly fine unless you have toenail fungus or some other unsightly problem. Socks may never be worn with sandals. If for some reason you have to wear socks, put on sneakers.

One recent summer in London during a terrible heatwave I looked around and saw businessmen wearing shorts as part of a suit! Actual tailored shorts of the same material as their coats. I consider now that I have seen Everything, and no longer worry about wearing walking shorts in Europe. If it gets hot enough, the locals wear shorts too. The only real difference is that my legs are usually more tanned than theirs.

I am 61 and have perfectly respectable legs.

When I lost a ton of weight, I kept the chunky legs and ass for about 30 years.

Now I’ve been getting thinner, my thighs are hollowing out.

The way you're dressed, the way you're groomed can sometimes make the difference between a table at a nice restaurant on vacation versus a Big Mac and Fries at the Rome McDonald's.

Just in general at least 50% of people do not have nice enough legs that should be displayed wearing shorts, at least not on a regular basis. That percentage increases as people age due to either muscle loss, or fatty deposits or legs just get too scrawny. Just my own personal observation that people over 60 shouldn't wear shorts on a daily basis unless you don't care that it makes you look worse and older.

All this fuss is ridiculous. Restaurants, churches, and a few other places have dress codes. You follow them, or you don't enter. Easy. But cities and countries do not have dress codes. If your clothes are clean, fit properly, and cover what is legally required to be covered you are fine. American tourists are always easily picked out of the crowd. We tend to be bigger and taller, and our clothes are different in color, cut, and style. You're not going to be mistaken for a native, so as long as you're not being offensive -be comfortable!

Most people consider themselves better looking than they actually are. The same goes for opinions about one’s own appendages.

[quote] Hence, the rigid “rules” about shorts and flip flops.

That's because Mother always told them "shorts and flip flops are only for the common people."

As the doctor administered the weekly enema.

Of course it is acceptable at any age- sheesh. What no one should pay attention to is the judgement of dehumanizing imbeciles.

After 70 it's a very short mumu or nothing.

Everyone who said who cares? As long as you are comfortable must not own and Use full length mirrors.

What you don't seem to understand, R137, is that we're saying we don't CARE what other people think. We look in those full-length mirrors all the time. But we see ourselves as a whole person -not just legs. That's the great thing about a full-length mirror: it allows you to see more than just a part of you.

Older men not wearing shorts is just as sage advise as they shouldn't go around shirtless.

by Anonymousreply 141May 18, 2024 9:37 PM

R137 So you think every man over 40 or 50, without exception, needs to hide his body? You've never seen any attractive older men?

by Anonymousreply 142May 18, 2024 9:54 PM

OP wants men in burkas.

And caftans.

I know this bi guy who doesn't wear shorts ever! he has very skinny legs. He works out but only his top half of body. He doesn't look bad for a man in his mid 50s, doesn't have a belly. He knows they're too skinny and ugly to wear shorts

by Anonymousreply 145May 26, 2024 11:42 PM

The legs are the last to go.
