I HATE long baggy shorts!
 By some miracle, my employer lets me wear shorter shorts (7 inch inseam) than I can buy in most stores(better yet!! they PAY for them). Undergear USED to sell very short shorts. I wish I'd bought more. I just bought 4 pair of the OP look shorts. Last summer I bought cheap jeans at Wal-mart & cut them where I wanted (just below the back pockets). As long as my PARTS aren't showing, they're long enough.

I usually wear my side split shorts by Nu Parr of AZ, but looking for more shorts to buy.  Can anyone recommend some manufacters that sell short shorts at a reasonable price.  I thought of looking at Goodwill and find womens shorts with low rise and short inseam.  If I am a 36 to 38 waist, what size in women's size?

I have a very short pair of white coton shorts made by a brand called "teenage millionaire".  I can only wear them as a swimsuit cover as my c&b will hang out if i wore them on the street (i dont wear underwear).  I wore it last summer as a cover in south beach and will probably do so again this april.  I also have a pair of bodybuilding style short shorts (black) that I have worn as a swimsuit in conservative hotel pools.  I am thinking this year (if i can beef up my legs a bit...I just started doing squats) that i will wear them on the street in south beach as well.

Goodyrthonger, I've purchased several pairs of vintage gym shorts from Bodyaware.  They are located in Scottsdale, so you could actually go visit the store.  These shorts end right at the bottom of the cheeks.  They are snug on the buns but are designed so they aren't skin tight around the leg openings.  They are also roomy enough in the front to be comfortable.  My wife likes them because she says they look more like a guy's style short than a girl's style.  Yet they expose the entire thigh.  I think they look great.  They run approx. $16.50-$17.50/pair.  I'm a 31-32 waist and mediums fit me perfectly.

I bought short shorts from HE Swimwear. They're sold as underwear, but I wear them as shorts. They're 10 inches in length, with a 1 inch inseam. Large size fits fine for a 35 inch waist. A bit more expensive at $29. Of course for the price conscious, you can always take an old pair of levis and cut/design them to whatever length you like.

I have recently purchased a square cut pouch shorts from Hillcrest Swimwear (HC108 Square Cur Shorts). I have been wanting & looking for a pouch short for some time & could never find one that fit well & fit especially in the pouch area. I e-mailed Hillcrest to see if they make any with a slightly longer inseam & Snow (the owner/seamstress) replied quickly saying she could make the adjust the inseam, just needed to let her how long Id like it.  I have worn the while working out & while out walking & the fit is excellent even in the pouch.  The shorts are in a white Lycra fabric, which is slightly sheer, & when wearing a thong under it shows through slightly. I have worn  Muscleskins MPT & MPXT under & was very happy the pouch fit & looks even when wearing a thong underneath. If the fabric is darker I wouldn’t wear anything underneath. Snow has been very helpful & does great work. I’m very happy with the shorts & have just ordered another pair!

Leopard5, the Skinz split side shorts (cover shorts) are nice.  They fit nicely and cover the buns precisely.  If you want to show a little cheek, just roll them up once or twice and you're good to go.

I'm not a big fan of baggy shorts, no matter how short they are.  Lycra short shorts on the other hand... I love those and wear them every day to the gym.  I usually wear something that covers one or two inches of leg.  Haven't worked up the courage to try something skimpier (at least in public)

Thanks for info about Soffe Teeny Tiny Lowrise Mesh shorts.  I got 2, small and medium.  Small for the close fit, and medium for running.

I love them, they are low rise and very comfortable waist, great for showing off thong tan line.  Cut short so good for running, and just covers all butt cleavage, all for $10 each, at Dick's Sporting Goods.

NICE and SEXY

I am an avid runner and biker to go along with being a thonger so my legs are probably my best feature. I like to wear short shorts for running and swimming when a thong or speedo isn't appropriate so these Soffe shorts sounded cool. I stopped in at Dick's SG today and got a pair of Soffe Teeny Tiny Lowrise Mesh Shorts in navy. I love that name btw. Since they are for girls, I went with an XL even though I am only a 34" waist. They fit great, show my legs and my booty well but are lose enough I can see myself running in them. They are barely see-thru so I'll need to wear a thong underneath and intend to use them as a cover up at the beach this summer. Thanks for the suggestion.

I recently bought one of these speedo poly mesh drag suits

http://www.swimoutlet.com/photos/1438-2T.jpg

and I cut the black lining out.  From a distance it give a nice see-through effect but it's not over the top.  Up close it's obvious the lining is cut out and it accentuates the shapes underneath - front and rear.  I have worn it with a thong underneath and with nothing underneath.  I find wearing it with nothing underneath is a great way to wear a daring style in places where a thong or bikini would just not work.

I took a look at rm2isso's shorts.  The length, I like on the front and back, but what I don't like about them is too much emphasis on the package.  When I buy a speedo, shorts, or a thong, the place I want them not to compromise on coverage is the package.  If something is hanging out or somehow emphasized through a special compartment, I just think it looks trashy.  On that note, does anyone know where one can find some "old school" men's running shorts, I mean, the ones that basically have a speedo inside and loose shorts on the outside that are only slightly larger?

Have a look at http://www.soark.com. They offer a variety of short running shorts, in a choice of styles, fabrics and colours. Quite cheap as well. The "original nylon tricot shorts" may be the closest to the "old school" shorts you're asking for. Inside and outside fabric are the same, so no white inner briefs showing.
I have ordered once from them; in general, sewing quality is good and fit is fair. I would like both running shorts and tights a bit snugger in the crotch.

Zonneman, those "original nylon tricot shorts" look great, especially the 3/4 split sided ones.  Doubt the liner provides much support, though, so a thong underneath, with or without the liner, would be good for guys who'd rather not flop around.  May order some when I need a new pair, thanks for the link.  BTW, their flag designs look good, too, though I have a thing about wearing the flag.  Since when was Colorado a country?  I'd wear that!

Re:Short Shorts

Earlier in this thread, about two years back, there was some discussion regarding wearing short shorts everywhere, not just to run or as a coverup at the beach. I'm interested to know how many of you (if any!) wear shorts with a 2 inch inseam or less, anywhere and everywhere that women would wear shorts. I'm talking about going to big stores like Walmart, or a mall, for instance. I get the feeling that nobody here does wear real shorts to such places, and it's understandable. It takes a tremendous amount of confidence to do that with the fashion restrictions that society puts on men.

I will however, say that a couple of months ago I drove from Galveston to Dallas, in the day time, wearing a pair of black nylon women's running shorts from Old Navy. They are the typical running shorts, 2-2.5 inch inseam (I don't remember exactly), no split sides, you know how they look. This was the first time I've worn shorts in about 15 years. Normally I would never have the guts to pull off something like this, but I was on a kind of high leaving Galveston, and I decided what the heck, I'll just leave them on and drive back home. The first stop was at a gas station out in one of those typical Texas country towns. I got out of the car and was expecting trouble, as the gas station also had a small restaurant attached. I went inside, and there was an old guy ahead of me. There were a few people in the restaurant, it wasn't packed, but some of them could see me from where they were sitting. I stood there about two minutes behind the guy in front of me, the whole time psyched up for some major trouble, like somebody yelling out some comment. Not a peep from anyone. The guy in front of me left and now I was face to face with the cashier, an old woman in her 60s probably. Still no trouble, I paid for my gas, walked out, and started pumping. I was still expecting trouble, when two guys with a truck and trailer with a big tank and some other equipment on it pulled in. I thought for sure they would say something. They passed by me and didn't even look. It was quite a relief for me when I got back in the car and left, with not the slightest problem from anyone. Next, I stopped by a factory outlet mall in Conroe. I went in a lot of stores, and again, not the slightest problem, although there were not many people there, and Conroe is a small town.

Even with those experiences, I doubt I could ever get the courage to try that here in Dallas. Just stepping out of my front door would be a tremendous challenge. I should add that I've always had a good lower body, as my genetics favor lower body development. I've been lifting weights for over 10 years now, and no matter what, my chest and arms never really grew much, but my lower body literally exploded when I first started lifting, and still develops easily. So my lower body is my best asset, unlike most guys with their upper bodies, which they can wear tank tops and muscle shirts to show off. I've always wondered why and when it became such a big deal for a guy to show off his legs. My feeling is if women can wear shorts that barely cover their butt in public places, then why can't men?

Re:Short Shorts

Just do it.  You will find that most people could not care one hoot about what shorts you wear if you act with confidence. On the other hand if you skulk around looking furtive then they will think you are up to no good.

Once in a while you may have someone say something but don't worry, their opinion is of little matter, they probably voted for the wrong person for president too.

It takes confidence to feel self confident and to be able to put up with the occasional funny look or comment from a red-neck.  You get that confidence by having the courage to just steal your nerves and do it.

I often go around town in short shorts, the only disadvantage is quite a few of the shorter shorts have no pockets for money or keys.   I will go to the post office, supermarket and most other places without much worry, but I have been doing it for years and can tell you the confidence comes with practice.

Well, I went swimming with my two daughters while wearing a speedo in what was basically a mud-hole filled with morbidly-obese rednecks today.  I didn't get any direct flak from anyone, but I was thinking to myself that if I did, I would simply address them as "pig" if they were really nasty, or if not, just tell them to go look in the mirror before they judge me.  That said, I am pretty sure I overeard some nasty comments that were not said directly to me.  But then again, I am in pretty good shape -- I compete and sometimes place in triathlons and lift weights in the winter, unlike most of the couch potatoes surrounding me. I suppose the cowardice on their part is understandable.  The key is to remember that they are nobody -- they don't matter.  Their only participation in sports of any kind is watching them from a couch.  These are guys who never even made it beyond the high school football team, yet they have the audacity to say this NFL team or that one's quarterback sucks, when in fact, he could run and throw circles around them.  These people are the types that could fall into a black hole and the world would be no worse off without them.

I wear extremely short shorts all the time in public.  inseem 1 inch or less often low rise (tight workout type), usually with a tight shirt. The shirts/tanks workout tops are short so there is even a hint of abs showing.  I wear them quite often, even on airplanes when I travel, in the airport, public, stores, the mall, gym, etc.

And yes of course I get a lot of looks and snickers and often smiles as well.  Often times the shorts are tight work out type.  I love the feeling and how I look in them,  that is what is important. I guess I feel that women can wear these so can I, and I do.

Does my heart rate rise every time I enter a public place, especially somewhere like an airport or grocery store? You bet.  But after I walk in, I realize that it's fine, and then I feel great about myself and the hard work I put into the gym.

Anyone have weird looks at them wearing not short shorts but compression shorts ( not bike shorts but ventilator compression shorts)?
 I wear compression shorts now exclusively at the gym. You should see the looks or comments i get from folks. Some mumble to there buddies while smirking at me " isn't it obvious" presumable they think i'm gay for wearing such shorts without wearing anything on top to cover them. If women wear shorter compression shorts and are overweight why do they look at me as a periya?

 I seen an attractive women a far at the gym tanned with short booty compression shorts and a razor back sports bra, she looked 25 and sweet, like the women advertised in the bowflex commercials. After awhile working out we passed each other, she looked shocked and stared at my legs and shorts as she never seen anyone wear before. I stared back looking disappointed she looked old maybe 55, so i was just as shocked when passed each other. Almost every guy looked at the women doing situps, i for one, was now looking at everyone else, seeing how they look at someone wearing proper workout atire. I guess it was surprising to see a granny wearing such skimppy clothes i smiled at there reations even though its pretty rare to see a young attrative women wearing these days at the gym.

I don't see the problem wearing compression shorts without my bulge showing. I wear a bit of a long shirt not to short but not to long like a dress either. I get a lot of surprised looks and smerks at one gym, but another gym some people don't care to much except some female trainers and there out of shape clients. Actually now seen more the one person wearing short running shorts and compression shorts as well. As i leave one workout area another guy wearing the same as me takes my place seems to be almost acceptable by folks. But i do notice one guy glancing over at another guy wearing short shorts on the treadmill when he wasn't looking as to feel not as outcast for wearing such shorts.

You notice in north america the main companies making compression shorts advertise there item as a base layer while in europe they have shorts advertised as tights. You can't buy compression shorts now without them being like underwear with the a front opening. Women compression shorts are made to be worn as the outer layer in north america what gives with that, and they can select longer leg shorts or shorter ones.  Men can only buy bike shorts with the pad and then are acceptable to wear only for cycling. I always kind of shyed away from trying compression shorts but found working out in them is very comfortable and cool not sweaty. I now know why women wear them working out not for them to tease men about  fashinable item but a practical way in feeling pretty good. I gained more then 10 rpm on riding a stationary bike at the gym because of the shorts, and my leg workout days squating, dead lifts with the barbell is less of a pain and hassel. I use to wear a thong under my leggings during winter but with the ventilator shorts nada..I'm loving it if anyone of those guys who shun me for wearing those shorts they should try it see for themselves, but i guess there to embarrased to do so anyway..

I'm not a fan of compression shorts, why missing out compressing the rest of the leg (calves) as well by wearing compression tights instead?
I bought lately a brand called CW-X (American brand) and I'm quite happy with the results.
I also wear compression tops (Skins, BSC-Kompressorz), and to train wearing compression garments (top and bottom) has improved my liftings and recovery greatly.
Very few other men wear these at the gym;  I suppose I'm showing my personality and confidence.
No one ever has said anything or commented negatively.
I think I get quite a lot of approval signs from the ladies there.
And when there is a new guy at the gym who doesn't know me and tries to show a funny face like saying "look at what he is wearing", I shut his mouth when he sees me squatting and deadlifting with the weights I lift.
I don't wear these garments to show off, but to achieve results.
I know it looks great and outlines my muscularity, and that is a bonus that helps to motivate my workouts.
I don't try to cover my bulge or my bum showing, unlike some men who jog and wear shorts on top of their tights.  This by the way looks so ridiculous and lack of self confidence.
All my compression garments are black, and are discreet. 
The idea of not wearing long sleeve compression tops, or long tights, in hot summer days, was proved to be wrong.
I proved it last summer;  wore long sleeve tops and long tights even on hot summer days (I can't train when the temp is above 26 or 27 degrres anyhow).
Well, the good thing is once you start to sweat, ant the spandex material gets wet, it immediately cools you down and it becomes really fresh. 
Unlike being wet wearing cotton, it dries and evaporates gradually.
With the gym it occurs to me the same as with the beach:  not many other guys wear what I do, maybe some would like but lack the courage.  But it strengthens my sense of being different and having confidence and personality.

I love tight short shorts too but, living in cooler climes, I rarely wear them out, except when on vacation somewhere hot. That said, I'd love to know what make/style of shorts you wear, shaved_thong_lover as I'm sure both my wife and I would appreciate some more! ;) Can you let us know where you get them?

you can get lycra short shorts from many places such as Skinz.  Or, if you aren't too concerned about buying something targeted towards women, you can get them from Nike, Adidas, Asics, and so on.  That's what I do.  The fabric and construction are better, you don't get "fetishy" designs like bulges in the front, and I think the mainstream brand and logo help with acceptance at the gym.

John Howard, right on with the CW-X tights.  I got them to help my aching knees, and they do help.  With a tank top, never any comments or hassles at my health club.  For support and bulge control, I wear a small jock underneath at 12 o'clock, with the straps pinned up in back to make it into a thong.  Dress policy asks that we wear shirts to our thighs if wearing spandex, men and women both.  Compliance is a little loose, and to check for proper form in the mirror when doing pushups, I often tuck the tank in, then 'forget' to pull it out afterwards.  Nobody seems to care, I'm just one of the regulars, on good terms with fellow members and staff alike.  I find it hard to understand how some on this board have problems if they're being discreet.

Beachfolks,

I've been wearing crazy shorts from Val's Customized. I wear them to bicycle, canoe and such. One way I like them is that they're a little shorter than most men's shorts. She makes volleyball length also. Although I don't own any, I would think that the volleyball shorts would barely cover somone's butt. You need to have a small belley to wear these as the elastic is strong enough to keep them in place, hence the elastic won't stretch out.

They don't bulge like you request and women absolutely love the wild colors. I'm so tired of having to choose between black or black and black or black for men's exercise shorts.

I've worn them to sports bars or Panerra Bread after some exercise and no one has ever said anything. Except for women who want to know where I got them.  In fact the folks I hang with give me the most grief (good natured of course) about my crazy shorts. Two of my favorite pair came through the clearance (blemished) offer. Although I did give a third pink pair with gum ball bubbles to the woman I'm seeing. I ain't wearing pink shorts!

This is a bit of an aside but still on-topic and will probably amuse those of us interested in this thread...

From an article that appeared on June 16th in 'The Times' newspaper here in the UK:

"Even now, you just know it will be all about the shorts. And so, as Andy Murray revealed the outfit he’ll be wearing at Wimbledon next week — Fred Perry Aertex shirt, cable-knit jumper — it was with a sense of impending bawdiness on Centre Court that one found oneself mesmerised by those shorts.
   Even Murray conceded that they were “a bit short”."

To find out just how short we're talking about, read the full article (with photo) here...

I'm guessing, if you're like me, you might prefer your shorts a bit shorter. =D

I got two more pairs of Soffe Teeny Tiny Lowrise Mesh Shorts in black today - this time from Kohl's. I found out that they are on sale for 2 for $10 when I went to the register with one pair to purchase, the check-out girl suggested I get two since they were on sale. I said "sure, I wear a lot of shorts for running and can never have enough." She smiled and waited for me to grab another pair. I also didn't notice until today that these shorts are made for teen girls - I thought they were for ladies, haha. I wear the XL and it fits nicely, just a little lose in the waist.

On our recent week long beach vacation, I wore my navy pair every day as a cover-up to my thong on the way to and from the beach and around town with my wife during the day. I loved showing off my legs and bulge in them and even gave a few intentional whale tail thong slips to ladies who seemed interested. One day, two 20 somethings were hanging out in front of our condo and they smiled as I walked by; blatantly staring at my bulge. So when I walked up the stairs, I knew my Teeny Tiny Lowrise Mesh Shorts were riding down and I took off my shirt while walking to 'accidentally' expose my Skinz skinny side thong to them. The next day, as I passed them again, they asked what part of the beach were we going to :)

 TheSilentOne, don't be concerned about the reaction of older people to your short shorts.  Most of us grew up in short shorts in the 50s, 60s and 70s and some of us still do, I'm 68..  I go everywhere in short shorts (one inch to two inch inseam), when the weather is nice, that includes Wal Mart, Home Depot, supermarket, the bank and no one makes an issue of it, sometimes I even get a complement.  The problem is the teen age boys.  I was out helping a neighbor family find their dog this weekend and a teen boy about 16, with his girl, started to whisle and mock from about a block away; I just ignored him.  Actually the teen girls are not bothered with what you wear as I discovered at the beach about 4 years ago and I was wearing a thong when they came over to talk and dragged their boy friends along.  Dress as  you like and follow JM_Runs advice.

 Ok, from reading all the posts here I plucked up my courage and wore some lycra
short shorts to the grocery store this afternoon. The shorts were actually a Tyr
brand swimsuit they called a triathalon suit. 80% nylon, 20% lycra spandex which
really conforms to the body well. The waistline is slightly below the regular waist-
line and the inseam about 2". The back of the legs come down below my cheek
crease by 3/4" to 1". The back fits nicely around my buns and the front molds
nicely around my package, but since the color is black it isn't overly obvious. I
wore a dark blue cotton tank top that covered maybe about half of my butt and
package.
 
The grocery store that I went to tends to have a lot of hispanics and the guys
tend to dress the gangsta style and the older men blue jeans and long sleeved
shirts.
 
I went in the store about 4pm and it was getting pretty busy with people getting
off of work and stopping at the grocery store on the way home. I had to get
only about half a dozen things, so I picked up a hand-carry basket. I didn't make
any effort to rush through the store, but spent only about 15 minutes there. I
didn't hear any comments or didn't see any obvious reactions. There was one
mother with a little girl that seemed to give me a neutral lingering look. It was
a warm day and it was nice to wear somewhat less than usual out in public
(I would usually wear cargo shorts that come somewhat lower than mid-
thigh--my girlfriend calls them shorty shorts since shes conservative and is
used to seeing guys wearing the knee-length and longer shorts--and a collared
shirt) that is very comfy (I can barely feel I am wearing shorts) and displays
the results of my 20+ years of running (I have very muscular runners legs and
butt) and, well, yes, a bit of my manhhod. The only downside was going
through the freezer isle. Brrr! Well, plus I had to carry my wallet in hand. I
may wear a waist pack (aka fanny pack) next time, but also don't want to
cover up any of my assets. ;-)  Guess that's the exhibitionist in me from
wearing a thong at the beach. All in all, I can't wait to do it again, maybe with
a little longer list of things to get.
