My husband does not like wearing pants.  (that sounds funny... try again)

My husband loves wearing shorts...  He will not wear pants, even in winter.  Yep, we get funny looks.  He also does not like wearing shoes, but I digress.

He requested some cuffed, plaid, comfy shorts for our summer travels.  Here is pair 1 of two.  They are a poly blend of some sort with a nice, grey and red plaid to them.  I am not keen on how the cuffs came out, but he really likes them  Smiley


A shot from out Montreal trip...


A shot from earlier in the summer, a bit closer up of the shorts. 

I don't have any other shots with better detail, but I will post the other shorts, ASAP!

Thanks for looking!  Grin

Those look really good.

One thought for next time (if there is a next time), the cuffs might look more proportioned if they are a little wider, but I think they look great as is.

I like the color of the shorts, perfect man shorts material.  I have to ask tho, are his feet painted?  You mentioned he didn't like to wear shoes.... and I *think* I see toes.... but I'm not really sure what I'm seeing down below.   Grin

Nice job on the shorts! 

BTW, those are vibram five fingers.  My brother doesn't like to wear shoes either because of shortened Achilles' tendons, so he has a pair of those instead.

Yup, they are five fingers!  He loves them, but tends to wear through them really fast... (they are thin soled gloves for the feet, basically...a shoe that aims to be as close as possible to walking in bare feet)
