    Okay what is the deal with guys who wear real long baggy gym shorts at the gym to work out? I mean the type that are so long and baggy they look like they are wearing a dress. Why dont they just fucking wear pants? I mean these so called "shorts" come almost down to their ankles. It looks so fucking stupid or am I just behind the fashion curve? Please tell me im not. Some I see even purposely pulling them down so half their ass crack is visible under their thin underwear. And how do you fucking work out like that?

    I see those and in my mind, I cannot see how they are capable of doing squats or leg lifts with all that extra yardage hanging off their lower bodies.

    They wind up riding down over the tops of the buttocks. While I am a connoisseur of the male ass, that is all those kinds of shorts seem to be good for. A peek at the upper bun!

    I also see the sense it makes to wear attire that is suited for strenuous physical activity at the gym.

    Obviously they are not serious about working out but I'm talking more about the look of it. Don't they realize they look like idiots?

    They are tacky, and then they sometimes were long socks that go way up their leg, so silly...

    My own gym shorts are not baggy, but they are longer in length. They were what was on sale when I had money at the time. I wear sleeveless tops and shorts (like basketball shorts). I find them to be comfortable for what I do at the gym, and I take my workout routine very seriously.

    I don't tend to pay much attention what other people wear in the gym, however. I'm there to be healthy and stay in shape--not chat or ogle or anything else.

    I'm a live and let live kind of guy. I don't care for the extremely baggy look at the gym. To me, nothing looks hotter than a fit guy in properly fitting mesh gym shorts.

    I'd rather see someone in long shorts at the gym than short shorts like that queen on Reno 911.

    Every generation has to do something to make the previous one scratch its head and wonder.

    granted,,,,but im not just talking about long shorts,,,im talking about shorts that literally come almost down to the dudes ankles and are so baggy it looks like hes wearing a long dress. I just thought to myself is this guy trying to make some fashion statement because he sure could not work out in this ridiculous outfit...

    I doubt it. My bulge still shows in my shorts.

    I wear the type that go down to my knees, no longer. but I prefer the type that go to the top of my thighs, they're easier to walk on the treadmill or to do sit ups.

    Actually, I think this is the truth here.

    With the current acceptance of the huge % of the population that is openly gay, bi or closeted, so came the awareness to straight men that they were being viewed as sex objects, just as they were viewing women.

    Fair is fair. Flaunt it if you are comfortable with being admired by both sexes... hide it with baggies if not.

    But, man... I just watched a documentary, with lots of footage of vintage basketball games. If I had been there then, I would have actually paid attention through a whole game... If you know what I mean? :rolleyes:

    What I think is really bizarre and unattractive is the boys who wear their pants with the belt (or no belt) below their ass... watch them... every 30 seconds they are pulling them up a bit to keep them from falling down. A weird, need for attention thing, I think, more than a fashion or social/cultural position statement.

    I went to college in the late 70's just as the trend started to change. I worked in the ticket office and got to see these guys practice. OMG, tight and man just get hard thinking about it. Thanks for that memory Onan Mann.

    I play badminton and tennis as well as working out in the gym. I've got pretty muscular legs and I can't do anything in shorts that even reach mid thigh, because they're too restrictive. If I could get away with it, I'd play in a speedo! Maybe I should try that when the new season starts up.

    The only reason I can think of for wearing "shorts" that long is that they want to hide scrawny legs.

    I personally go up a size, as long as they can be adjusted at the waist. Otherwise, you're right Viking man, they can be very constricting.
