Shorts Made in USA and A Man’s Guide to Wearing Shorts

A Man’s Guide to Wearing Shorts | The Art of Manliness. This link is to the great article from the website: The Art of Manliness, written on May 30, 2012. It is a complete and interesting compendium of information regarding men’s shorts. It also includes information like how long should shorts be and what to where with shorts. Plus, there is a video that further emphasizes these points. Furthermore, The Art of Manliness has published a very good article in 2009 about how to dress for the summer, which is a great companion piece. Kudos to the Art of Manliness.

Shorts Made In the USA

When it comes to purchasing shorts made in the USA, for the men, they are in short supply like US made underwear and polo shirts. For the women, finding shorts made in the USA is not as difficult because 1) many US jean makers also make shorts for women and 2) there are many more different types of styles of women’s shorts to chose from, which make it more “fashion” item than just a commodity.
