Who wears short shorts? Apparently men do with a suit jacket.

Yes, short suits are a thing and supposed trend for guys this summer. At least that’s what J. Crew and other menswear companies would like you to believe.

No matter which way ya “cut it”, the short-suit pairing just looks weird. The top half looks like a nice businessman, and then below the waist it looks like a little boy on Easter Sunday. And I’m sorry but nothing is as big of a turn off as a guy looking like a “little boy”, unless you’re Madonna or J Lo. Yes I went there.

But I highly suggest guys DON’T go there when it comes to short-suits. Pharrell may have looked all “Happy” on the red carpet sporting his short-tux but honestly, I don’t think many women will be “Happy” if you showed up wearing a short suit.

Plus, let’s be real, the type of people who wear shorts are usually the ones who shouldn’t be. I can just see guys with scrawny legs, or a sock tan sporting these.

Let’s just cut to the chase…the short-suit trend should be just that…short! Cut it off at the knees!

And that’s today’s helping of The Online Dish with Maggie.
