I Find Myself Disagreeing With Tom Ford


I love Mr. Tom Ford. He is always stylish and has been making men step up their fashion game for years. However, recently in an interview he said that men shouldn't wear shorts or flip flops. I completely agree about flip flops... I'm repulsed by them. I don't think men have attractive feet so they shouldn't wear them (but that's another story).

However, I'm not so convinced about the shorts part. It gets hot in the summer, so men shouldn't have to suffer through pants. I think they can look fashionable in shorts. Here are some examples:


Keep them long!


Dress them up, or dress them down.



Pair them with a white shirt and a fedora!

Now we just need the warmer weather to arrive! What are your thoughts about men wearing shorts (or flip flops)?

  1. Hmm...I have no problem with shorts. I think that flip flops can look good on guys, but there is a time and place for them and most guys screw that up. =p

I mean growing up in Florida and now living in LA it's just insane to think men can't wait shorts of flip flops. very interesting fact though. super glad i found your blog. i'm totally following, I hope you will as well.

  3. Feet aren't pretty but flip flops can be necessary sometimes right (like in this tropical climate).

    Long shorts look great on guys - agreed!

  4. @Bridget- haha yes guys can always screw that up :)

    @Fash Boulevard- Thanks for following! I did some time in LA and I still think flip flops are gross on guys. I guess I understand for the beach but most men don't care for their feet :/

    @Chic n' Cheap- Yes, keep the shorts to the knee please :)

  5. HAHAH! I just saw that article this morning and sent it to a friend of mine who's taking her BF to NYC in August. They were debating about whether or not he could be a "grown up" and still wear shorts in the city.

    I love that you've featured some options that are a little more adult. I'll be sending this link to her! :D
