I like this answer best.We're trying to help jort-wearers see the error in their way and also improve the overall appearance of society.You slaves to fashion, you. They were all that less then 5 years ago. Now you guys will throw them out rather than be caught dead in them. Sound like beeyotches to me. Although I have to agree, there are indeed fashion faux pax dictated by the passing of time... ...and I'll admit I am more inclined to wear something like these over straight up "jorts." I agree with this line of thinking. Sure, there are fads that are extremely outrageous. But we're talking about JEAN SHORTS. Its not a radical idea. Jeans are a classic look. Jean shorts will never die. Get over it.
