Slowly but surely, the days are starting to heat up, and women and men alike are starting to feel the itch to ditch the layers of fabric that have been encasing their legs through a protracted, dreary spring. Us chicks have a nice variety of options: miniskirts, gauzy maxidresses, culottes?but for dudes, it's basically shorts. And WOW, there are some bad options out there. We know it's tempting to go with the flow and throw on a pair of jorts. But resist, we implore you! We've rounded up some options that will keep your gams cool without making you look like a dandy, a jock, or a Euro tourist. You're welcome!
