Some bloody magazine called Vman (with Ashton Kutcher copying the photo shoot Steven Klein did with Tom Ford for W. in 2005) turned me on to these "70s-esque well-fitting short trousers" by tie designer James Kendi. I agree with his arguments therein that all American shorts are as long as pants and ill fitting. James decided to make his own that are "not too short nor too tight–but just right." Adding that "It's very attractive when a man is confident enough to show his legs off." See the collection at Kendities.com.
