Man From Hungary Who Is Wearing Short Shorts Everywhere He Goes


Shorts are a garment worn by both men and women over their pelvic area, circling the waist, and covering the upper part of the legs, sometimes extending down to knee but not covering the entire length of the leg. They are called “shorts” because they are a shortened version of trousers, which cover the entire leg. Shorts are typically worn in warm weather or in an environment where comfort and airflow are more important than the protection of the legs.


In British English the term “short trousers” is used, but this term is only for shorts that are a short version of real trousers, e.g. tailored shorts, often lined, as typically worn as part of school uniform for boys up to their early-to-middle teens from roughly 1920 to 1980 (and still in Australia, Singapore, New Zealand and South Africa), and by servicemen and policemen posted overseas to tropical climates. The British-English slang term “short pants” is probably the nearest equivalent in the USA. In the USA, these might nowadays be called “dress shorts” or “walk shorts”, terms which have not gained currency in Britain. A somewhat similar garment worn by men in Australia is called “stubbies”. “Shorts” is used unqualified in British English to refer to sports shorts, athletic shorts, or casual shorts, the last nowadays being in the United Kingdom itself, commonplace in warm weather.
