this is going to be hard for some of you to grasp, but i hate shorts. i always have. i try to wear my jeans all summer, but it’s not practical. june, july and august in nashville call for shorts. i can’t escape it. i’m 5’9″ which means a) i’m not good at basketball and b) i’m in between inseam lengths for shorts. not gonna lie, i rocked some fratagonia stand-up shorts in college until i realized no one wanted to see my pasty white thighs and/or nuts. i believe the inseam on those puppies is 5″ (what the hell was i thinking). since then, i’ve played around with various inseams and styles and realized that for someone my height the perfect inseam hovers between 7 and 9 inches. i also prefer a more tailored cut that hugs your legs rather than gives someone a chance to peep your jewels if you tend to wear boxers. so if you’re in the market for new shorts this summer, check out unis emmett shorts. they have a narrow leg and an 8 inch inseam which hits right above the knees (below the knees is a no no, ya dingus). they also come in 6 different colors. they’re a bit on the pricey side, but no one said looking good is cheap.
