Shorts weather is still very much here in America. These are the days where wearing pants seems unbearable. And while inseam length on shorts has been discussed before, a recent purchase has got me thinking about it again. I’ve been on the lookout for a new pair of shorts, and I took advantage of Rugby’s awesomely, ridiculous sale going on now. $35 later, I have the University Chino Shorts on their way to me. I’m a shorter guy at 5’8″, with fairly short legs as well (about a 29″ inseam for pants), so I’ve always gone with 5″ inseam shorts. They are on the shorter side, but like I said, I’m short. Plus, playing hockey keeps your calves and thighs in fairly good shape. But I realized I probably needed something longer for certain occasions. Honestly, some looks just don’t seem right with shorter shorts. I’m hoping the 9″ inseam on these new Rugby shorts will help… we’ll see. But what about y’all? Is inseam length as big of an issue with you as it is for me?
What’s the perfect length for you? Long or short?
