Who Wears Shorts?

The Rake Magazine April 2014

Does there come a time in a man’s life when he is too old to wear shorts?

Is this really a “work” look? Even for creatives?

I just ask as I’ve seen a lot of suggestions lately that we take to tailored shorts. I confess to liking them. They remind me of the Bermudas that my parent’s generation wore to backyard cook-outs. Nothing baggy,cargo-y or loosely slung about the hips.

But I wonder (outside of visiting the beach or a the pool) if shorts have an expiration date?

Last year… less tailored, but a prep stand-by for garden parties.

What do you think? Easy yes. But can shorts be elegant, to a point?
