There are few outfit choices as maligned as jean shorts on a man. Perhaps you know them by their extremely scientific name: jorts. Either way, jean shorts have long been synonymous with the fashion of middle-aged suburban dads, alongside graphic tees from Old Navy and clearance-rack New Balance sneakers. (One of those things is considered cool now.) The only other denim-related article equally hated might be boot-cut jeans, which are still so feverishly despised that the internet went up in arms over Balenciaga's decision to resurrect the out-of-date style a few years back. But despite the venom hurled against it, the humble jort has maintained something of an eternal presence among men, whether you like it or hate it or merely tolerate it. Guys are just gonna wear shorts made out of jeans. What's new, though, is that this season, you can spot the style in designer collections left and right.
