    I have to be cautious about wearing shorts in public...my legs are so thin, I could get arrested for vagrancy.

    I have no visible means of support.

    40F and rainy today. I went grocery shopping. I wore cargo shorts. I wear shorts until it is below freezing, then sometimes only when it is below 20F.

    Next quesiton?

    I always wear pants...sometimes long pants, sometimes shorts, sometimes "underpants" ....it's all pants, not into wearing skirts/dresses and all

    It's funny - my last day in the office was March 12. Last week, I got a wild hair and decided to wear a dress shirt and dress slacks to my living-room "office". Felt really weird after eight months of T/sweatshirts and jeans/sweatpants.

    FYI - been refereeing soccer for 27 years (played for 20) so while I do have the legs for a kilt, not sure I'm there yet culturally...

    Interesting! Here in the Kalifornia desert no shorts, flip flops, sandals or t-shirts in the jury pool (everywhere else, anything goes). No telling what goes on in the big city, what with their big city rules and all.

    My guy, I'm telling you--you owe it to yourself to give it a try. It's restored my whole...ecosystem.

    Nothing wrong with that....Scotsmen have worn kilts for centuries...and its said to be a sign of a lesser man if he wears anything underneath....and those Highland Gales would freeze the plebs off a brass monkey

    Lockdown has made me a confirmed track pants man. Jeans feel like chainmail after track pants.

    If I had my kilt at home I'd wear that, but it's in my desk at my office, where I haven't been since March.

    Don't ask why my kilt is at work. You really don't want to know.

    i wouldnt dare tell you what would become of you if you wore that round here...imagine going shopping in middlesbrough in that....the result would be unprintable
    You would definately be taking a ride to intensive care in a St.Johns Taxi

    Its odd one can declare it acceptable for a grown man to wear pajama bottoms in public, but it’s not ok to wear shorts. Just sayin’...

    I have seen a young guy in Athens GA wearing a romper in the same shopping center where Guitar Center is located. It's a college town so I guess that's expected. Closer to my house, which is in a semi-rural farm area, I did see a hipster wearing a kilt in the local farm supply store. That was unexpected.
