Best Practice Summer 09 -Shorts

Comments on "Best Practice Summer 09 -Shorts"


Blogger Casey said ... (5:28 PM) : 

As a woman seeing all these dapper guys but rather boring girls my suspicions are confirmed that girls should dress like guys this time of year :)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:31 PM) : 

AYE DIOS MIO!!! Cayo en amor! Mi piace molto! Questi raggazzi sono belissima! Merde, regardez ces jambes! J'adore! This is why I visit your site everyday!



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:33 PM) : 

a dark pallet for summer worn in an easy yet determined way which indicates the easy yet more thoughtful ideas of the bearers. specifics as rolled shorts ends, watches, bag, sunglasses emphasize as well as compliment the picture which is finally rendered as more of an urban everyday outfit due to the body posture of both .


Blogger Sophie said ... (5:33 PM) : 

Love the second one.


Blogger Monika Poppy said ... (5:35 PM) : 

why is smoking so sexy



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:36 PM) : 

I love the shorts idea for men as long as they arn't too short bcause sometimes it gets overdone and it just dosnt work


Blogger Well Done said ... (5:36 PM) : 

very well done.


Blogger Ms. B @ Millie Deel said ... (5:37 PM) : 

Oh the first one is adorable, love it! I'm taking notes for my husband!




Blogger crystal said ... (5:39 PM) : 

Fantastic. And what a great sweater in the first picture.


Blogger 50two said ... (5:41 PM) : 

i've developed a childhood fear of men in shorts after seeing a particular hairy man without the suitable body wear shorts that were too short.

i think i'm only starting to get over it now.


Blogger Donny B said ... (5:50 PM) : 

The man in the 1st pic is obviously stylish and looks great, but if it's cold enough for a big, thick cardigan, it's cold enough for pants, no?


Blogger KP said ... (5:58 PM) : 

Love that the first look is so unisex-very inspired


Anonymous P.J. said ... (5:58 PM) : 

I love how their style is so effortless. Rolled-up shorts just do it for me. Shorts with that wonderful cardigan of his. All so relaxed yet elegant. LOVE.


Blogger Cristi Silva said ... (5:59 PM) : 

I love that guy's are in to fashion and look good wearing it. I also love that my Husbands closet is 1/3 the size of mine. I don't need any competition :)


Blogger Erik Hoff said ... (6:06 PM) : 

Matching shorts with shirt looks great.


Anonymous StreetstyleNews said ... (6:11 PM) : 

Espacially the second one is really best practice!


Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (6:13 PM) : 

Great outfits.


Blogger Nick Leonard said ... (6:28 PM) : 

I like the shorts!


Anonymous olafgermany said ... (6:31 PM) : 

uiuiuiui...thats sexy...nice clothes as well...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:33 PM) : 

Interesting bag. Anyone knows what brand is it ?


Blogger Roman Dennis said ... (6:34 PM) : 

i love how the top one is mixing winter and summer


Anonymous Judith said ... (6:35 PM) : 

There must be something in the air this week. I brought home a pair of shorts for my husband -- flat front and cut lean to counteract the baggy cargos he has been wearing.

Judging from the other comments, I am not the only one who decided to take on the stylist role in respect to their husband. Love is in the air!


Blogger kahartland said ... (6:48 PM) : 

love it ;) esp. the second pic


Blogger tanvi said ... (6:56 PM) : 

Wow, now I have a crush on the first boy, so sexy!


Blogger green lantern said ... (7:16 PM) : 

Both outfits are perfect lengths for the short and the attire compliments the overall look. I might have exchanged the heavy shawl sweater with an over the shoulder v neck or light cardigan. But still, both subjects look dashing and you captured the essence as you always do!


Blogger Unknown said ... (7:18 PM) : 

everything about the first look is perfect. also, I disagree with the comment that shorts and a cardigan should not be worn together. the sleeves are rolled and the cardigan is left open. he looks so relaxed.


Blogger Paolo Manaloto said ... (7:42 PM) : 

thats how every man should wear shorts. trim, slim, and not below the knees. well done sart.


Anonymous Tina said ... (7:50 PM) : 

Not really androgynous, rather, innocent; the male version of Lolita. Naughty yet classical and well put-together. What's not to love?


Blogger Unknown said ... (7:52 PM) : 

Amazing shorts, i'm still looking for the perfect pair, these guys have got em !


Blogger John Danner said ... (7:59 PM) : 

Those lighter gray pants on the bottom are ace.

They just look like cut off and tailored trousers.


Blogger Cassie Jo - Tofuscloset said ... (8:00 PM) : 

tight shorts..=) but so fashionable


Blogger Candace said ... (8:02 PM) : 

Grey and blue...LOVE! It's a winning combination for these men in shorts.


Blogger Peter said ... (8:18 PM) : 

I own a pair of yoko devereaux shorts such as these in khaki. The styling is wonderful. I love the shirt in the second picture.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:26 PM) : 

yeah...luv the ideas of rolling up ur bermuda's.
makes it look more rugged...
i like..

kool caption Sart..



Blogger Unknown said ... (8:27 PM) : 

I cannot begin to express my love for both these pictures! I love them in so many ways for so many different reasons! They are so inspiring!The second picture..I love the length of his shorts and his boat shoes and his bag! His attitude of "I am too cool for society" is definitely displayed and it is part of what I like about it! The first picture...I love how the short are rolled up a bit and how he has white ked type sneakers and especially his very comfy looking cardigan! Love it!
check out my trendy blog!


Blogger Hayley said ... (8:50 PM) : 

gorgeous. how do they always seem to completely pull off an outfit while it all looking so effortless? sigh..


Anonymous Kyle said ... (8:51 PM) : 

Always love a good short.


Blogger american dream said ... (8:53 PM) : 

love guys in shorts, unfortunately not everyone brave enough to wear em


Blogger Charles said ... (8:56 PM) : 

Interesting the way the first gentleman's shirt melds into his shorts. The navy seems necessary for contrast.

Also, the hipness of the cuffed look is maximized by the trim, tailored shorts. Very nice.


Blogger pablo said ... (9:04 PM) : 

i wanna date the first guy
... so handome, cool and elegant.


Blogger Cinque said ... (9:06 PM) : 

I like the looks, but I've never understood the whole sweater with shorts thing. Either you're burning up hot with that sweater on or your legs are freezing with the shorts. It being August, I suspect the former.


Blogger IAMTHEANGELNEGRO said ... (9:06 PM) : 



Blogger Icy said ... (9:08 PM) : 

A man wearing shorts needs to have nice calf muscles. The first guy does, but does the second?


Blogger Kwame Richards said ... (9:14 PM) : 

I am thinking about those shorts. I don't know though.


Blogger Unknown said ... (9:30 PM) : 

love the first guy's look sooo much. very classic.


Blogger Brett Johnson said ... (10:06 PM) : 

Both guys are rocking these shorts impeccably. Masculine, trim and stylish.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:10 PM) : 

They both look great, perfect.
I covet that sweater (& I'm female).
Does anyone know the brand of the black and white shoes?


Anonymous holly said ... (10:35 PM) : 

I'm in love! Would'nt change a thing about these two guys. I agree with Casey at 5:28 :)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:37 PM) : 

Hmmm... I seem to remember seein this same guy in this same sweater on Jak and Jil 2 weeks ago... how curious. :)


Blogger Pamcasso said ... (10:44 PM) : 

Inspiring. I've been playing with rolling up some very lighweight old capri pants into shorts like the first gentleman. I think I need some keds too now.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:53 PM) : 

Shorts that are too tailored and too "tight" look funny.
They look uncomfortable and they look like underwear. I'm not advocating wearing baggy shorts that go lower than the knee but the guy in the second photo doesnt look very appealing.


Anonymous Bombshell Kitten said ... (11:07 PM) : 

I love the first one's cardigan. If it fit, I would wear his whole outfit.


Blogger Every Little Counts said ... (11:34 PM) : 

i do love a man in shorts. although i want to steal the first guy's sweater for myself. i think i actually want the entire outfit for myself.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:46 PM) : 

it all seems for effortless for the gent in the first photo. He doesn't seem to mind, or realize, that he's contradicting himself in his outfit but he knows he looks damn good. I think thats the perennial quality in fashion. aesthetic over practicallity.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:49 PM) : 

the first guy was on jak&jil last month.


Blogger Almaty Street Fashion said ... (11:51 PM) : 

Oh, the guys are sooo incredibly sexy in thoise shorts!!!

The I think the good look depends on how a man can work it, be cause the short dom`t suit all the men )


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:10 AM) : 

it is so refreshing to see guys understand what a pair of shorts should look like. God knows there's enough guys in board shorts polluting the streets.

Personally I believe pleated linen shorts are the way to go but yeah... anything except board/hip-hop shorts.



Blogger Hanna Persson said ... (12:13 AM) : 

I wonder where he found that sweater in the first photo, it looks really cosy!


Blogger Alan Nei said ... (12:39 AM) : 

simple elegant and gorgeus

Blogger Unknown said ... (12:57 AM) : 

~love both looks. i love the cuffed shorts on the first and the how the short fits on the second.. i am always a fan of tailored, i love how the second picture brings coolness over trims.. a stunning way to show legs.


Anonymous seo india said ... (12:57 AM) : 

nice shots


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:00 AM) : 

hotties. love the whole shorts look


Blogger Elaine said ... (1:19 AM) : 

I like the rolled up shorts and no socks with shoes look! It looks classy on


Blogger Soren Lorensen said ... (1:20 AM) : 

mmmm I find shorts on men very tricky - I think it's because I'm not use to them.

I think the second pair here are a little too short.


Blogger Move said ... (1:30 AM) : 

i love the first looks, hes very awesome, i want meet with him :p


Anonymous Fvad said ... (1:59 AM) : 

I like how their attire refelects the attitude..

The first guy makes me want a cigarette, or even better, offer him a light.

The second guy has sexier legs then me!

The first guy is working it better. I love his jumper.

Lovely shorts!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:22 AM) : 

Oh please all this sartorial twitter about shade, cut, contrasts... the only reason they look great is that both of these guys are SMOKIN (and yes on literally is ) .... they would look great is sack cloth...


Anonymous Jay said ... (5:30 AM) : 

Wow, the first one was amazing. I was like, damn i want that outfit.. and i pretty much had all the pieces in my wardrobe xcept the shorts.. Cutted a grey Junk De Luxe Chinos i havent worn at all this summer into a pair of shorts.. and now i have another outfit ^^

Love this site!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:43 AM) : 

The first guy is sooo sexy. Too bad about what appears to be a wedding ring on his left hand.


Blogger Pearl Westwood said ... (6:38 AM) : 

The loose fit of the first guy is perfection!!! In fact he should give me his outfit, that cardigan and shorts combo looks so soft and snuggly, just need heels, say Ann D boots. Oh and that would leave the guy in his pants? Im totally ok with that ;-)


Blogger Ashley said ... (8:09 AM) : 

The first look is summer chic personified.


Blogger La Marquise said ... (8:30 AM) : 

ohhhhh I love the first men...bellisimo!


Blogger Kevin @ myMANybags said ... (8:47 AM) : 

Love the chunky knit and shorts combination! Effortless style:-P

Love it!



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:57 AM) : 

I love the cardigan!! Anyone knows what brand is it? I want it!


Blogger ukashv said ... (8:58 AM) : 

shorts are very sexy!!


Blogger Rafe New York said ... (9:03 AM) : 

I love the shorter and slimmer cuts these days. I'm so done with baggy cargo shorts but some boys can't seem to let go.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:11 AM) : 

I really like the nonchalance yet very stylish look of both. I would wear both of the outfits, right now actually!!
I really like the sweater, it can get cool in the summer in the mornings and evenings and I really like wearing long sleeve pullovers and sweaters with the shorts. Most men wear baggy shorts, I like the fitted ones.


Blogger Unknown said ... (9:12 AM) : 

I want that cardigan. Anyone know who made it?


Anonymous Dawne said ... (9:14 AM) : 

I super like these shorts! Good fit.


Anonymous VonSontag said ... (9:16 AM) : 

First, I agree with cinque.
Second, I love those shorts, but I just don't have the legs.


Blogger Gary K. said ... (9:23 AM) : 

Agree about the incongruence of heavy cardigan and shorts. The sweater would look so much better with some lightweight summer chinos.


Blogger Hawa said ... (9:36 AM) : 

i concur with the lady above...definetly getting inspired by menswear than womens' this season...will try rolled shorts and chic menswear this summer (sans hairy legs, of course)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:41 AM) : 

what city is this from?


Blogger Mila García said ... (10:21 AM) : 




Blogger Tabitha said ... (10:27 AM) : 

You always manage to find such gems. Then again you are in a more fashionable city than Nashville is. Most of the guys who wear shorts here are... well, my mother told me if I didn't have anything nice to say...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:30 AM) : 

The first man has one of the most seductive looks I have ever seen pictured here.

Just a practical note regarding the cardigan and short combo... for eastcoast summers with indoor airconditioning the cardigan is a MUST to go from indoors to out (I'm wearing this combo in my office right now).


Blogger Mod Paul said ... (10:42 AM) : 

Great Look! tip top my son...


Anonymous luisa said ... (10:55 AM) : 

Such sexy men. Most can't wear shorts as short as the second one. He can! What a beauty.


Blogger Unknown said ... (11:33 AM) : 

A good looking guy with a great pair of legs can do no wrong. That said both looks are perfect summer outfits.Glad to see them wearing plimsoles and not sandals which I never like to see in town.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:40 AM) : 

Very nice style on both of them. Something i could put on myself. Like the second guys bag, i have one not to different!

Impossible to improve on the first..

Blogger Michael Joseph Owens said ... (2:58 PM) : 

These guys are mouthwatering.


Blogger Rob Philip said ... (3:55 PM) : 

OMG! The first one just radiates masculinity and a total 'I don't care' look. Such finesse and sophistication! Wow...


Anonymous sef said ... (6:08 PM) : 

both pairs of shorts are very well paired with minimalist footwear (esp. the deck shoe/sneaker hybrid in the second shot). that said, would love to know the exact combination of day-time weather conditions that facilitated the donning of a heavy cable-knit sweater and light cotton shorts...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:02 PM) : 

i love the second guys shorts better. he has the legs to pull them off. the shirt on the otherhand is atrociously tight!!!! Too tight for my taste.

the first guy is better too me


Blogger noelakadjtambour said ... (9:33 PM) : 

masculine knees are not bad after all


Blogger Sarah Alaoui said ... (10:40 PM) : 

is the first guy sporting a romper or is that just a monochromatic outfit?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:23 PM) : 

My future husband!!!! Gorgeous!!!


Blogger thwany said ... (2:33 AM) : 

great legs.


Blogger Stratos Bacalis said ... (2:51 AM) : 

Both styles look brilliant! I do this too with a grey micro-plaid narrow short and dark blue polo neck - wins all the time!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:29 AM) : 

now why cant all young men dress like this?


Blogger Nabster said ... (4:07 AM) : 

Nice legs LOL. I guess, like women, guys wear shorts better with a killer legs like those two.


Anonymous FashAddict said ... (5:34 AM) : 

Too bad for me the first is married! :(


Blogger S. said ... (6:34 AM) : 

The first guy is very Scandinavian in his whole look...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:46 AM) : 

the no-socks look is stylish in most cases, but isn't it uncomfortable sometimes? and wouldn't it get a bit smelly? haven't tried it myself...

Pretty sure that the second guy is Kim Grenaa....The guy behind (together with uffe buchard) the fashion magazine DANSK:


Anonymous Nick H said ... (6:21 PM) : 

I'm pretty sure the gentleman in the bottom image is wearing cut and cuffed pants.


Blogger Yoli said ... (11:08 PM) : 

The first guy falls under the category of "he can wear ANYTHING" this is not the rule for the rest of humanity, including the nice young man in the second pic.


Anonymous McMueller said ... (4:25 AM) : 

People in Scott's photos usually wear lots of clothes. So I'm glad to see two guys with just a few simple pieces on - and it looks great, especially the second one! You just have to make the right choices.

Where does one buy shorts like the first guy has? I'm digging that dark gray shade.


Blogger Unknown said ... (12:38 PM) : 

The first guy... mamma mia che bello.......


Anonymous Stonerindiekid said ... (3:13 PM) : 

Ahhh, wearing your favourite cardi in the summer can be good but I think by the looks of the first one, it might be a touch sweaty! I'm forever umming, and erring over what to wear in the summer when it is hot, layers can be too much in hot weather....kewl tho...


Blogger nanashi said ... (10:07 PM) : 

The first look, the guy was also photographed in Jak and Jill, he is divine . . . he is perfect in every sense possible. The cardigan adds more volume on the top to balance the narrow cut shorts, it's unexpected but refined all at the same time. Love.


Blogger Jason Sciara said ... (2:14 AM) : 

love the tonal shorts look.

Anonymous Nathan Johansen said ... (3:38 AM) : 

I like the overall look of the second photo best. I'm not sure my legs look good enough for these. And what about socks? I like socks, and I don't mean ankle socks. Could some socks work with shorts like these or do you have to go with out? Would slim argyle be too much? Probably so. Don't laugh at me...


Blogger Tickled Pink And Green said ... (4:23 AM) : 

Oh I do hate to say it, but that guy (2nd to last pic) does make smoking look oh-so-sexy.


Blogger toto said ... (9:29 AM) : 

i love the cardigan of the first man, and the way he smokes too... I really like both guys outfits.

ayyy ... so hot ...:)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:38 PM) : 

I really don't understand what is so goo about the first look.

to me, the sweater looks much to think to ever be paired with shorts. And I have a huge problem with the fact that the shirt and shorts so are the same color, and almost look as if he is wearing a unitard.

Maybe we just cant get past how hot he is?


Blogger Zuza said ... (5:43 AM) : 

alsolutely love first one!
