Shorts are excellent in sporting activities, they are first choice for athletes, swimmers compete excellently on shorts. Cycling is highly interesting and most people find it inviting, shorts makes cycling easier, shorts enable quick strides. When you put on appropriate sports shorts, the knee is free and movement becomes easier, this is the major reason athletes prefer shorts during training.

Shorts are highly appealing , some are really cool with it, owing to it's simplicity. Some shorts serve as inner wear, this is one infallible quality of shorts. Inner wears are meant to be convenient, owing to the number of hours we put them on, a good number of shorts are extremely comfortable and most youths use them as inner wears.

The length of some shorts are above the knee, while some stop at the knee, and the rest drop below the knee. Each style of short has specific occasions in which they are most suitable, the short ones makes movement extremely easy and are mostly suitable for indoor activities, while longer ones looks more responsible and are used for outdoors.

Zip's are can be found on shorts, but this depends on the usage, sporting shorts don't require belt, and a lot lacks Zip's, shorts meant for official outings share some qualities with trousers, and Zip's are definitely one of those. Shorts feel cool and creates an appealing appearance.

• Invaluable in athletics. • permits free knee movement. • Advantageous during hot weather. • A lot of designs are available. • Highly fashionable.

• Not convenient in cold weather. • Too casual for formal occasions.



I love to shorts on maximum time

Shorts are very much popular on our country for the maximum time. Except the official work there are no other alternatives about the shorts. I do use also under knee based shorts also.

Thanks Centurion

It is more comfortable and easy to mix and match with any style you want. Trouser for me is something that I would wear on special occasions only or for uniform.

Shorts for me

I live in Florida so I would go with shorts when I'm outside, it gets hot down here, but on the flip side every place you go inside, it's freezing, so I now understand why people wear pants and sweaters in FL

Cool and comfy

My hubby prefers to wear shorts below that touches knee length. He said it is comfortable and cooling because he sweats a lot during this hot weather. Inaddition, shorts are cheaper , simpler designs, assorted colors ,suitable for shopping, brisk walking, a short visit to nearby coffeeshop and airy.

Shorts are cooler.

They look cooler, they feel cooler, I really like shorts because they feel fresh, whenever there is heat, I use them I really like them.

What I wear depends on the moment and the weather, but in this case, I prefer to wear shorts. They are more comfortable and are the best to wear in the summer time as it is now, we have over 40 degrees here these days, and we need to dress will fewer clothes as usual and something from cotton.
Posted by wallet on 08-07-2017


I like both, but if I can wear shorts I'm not gonna miss the chance, they are fresh and comfier than pants. Of course, when I have to wear pants, I do it but sometimes they make me feel suffocated as we always have summer weather so it can be a nightmare to wear them when it's too hot.

Shorts for summer – Long Pants for winter

Wearing shorts is not really a matter of choice for me - but a necessity

In fact - as we experience temperatures of between 40 - 48 C for around 4 to 5 months of the year where I live - you'll get my vote for shorts any day - as not only are shorts or three quarter pants the widely accepted norm for everyone here - so much so that you won't see anyone wearing full length pants unless they're attending a formal occasion like a wedding or a funeral - but they're also the coolest, most comfortable attire in these temperatures.

That said - although I do wear shorts in varying styles and lengths most of the time at home - I generally prefer to wear the under the knee or what we call 3/4 pants when going out and about - rather than anything well above the knee.

Shorts please

I love wearing shorts since it allows my legs to be not restrained. I feel that it is better to wear shorts under such hot conditions in my country.Wearing pants would make me sweat a lot.
Posted by fishmonk on 08-10-2017


I looove shorts! I would wear them everywhere if it was allow, it's pretty hot in my country so they allow me to be fresh in this tropical weather. Also I love my legs and I enjoy showing them hahaha. Shorts are a great choice for an informal occasion but unfortunately they can not be worn every day
Posted by Pink_Turtle on 08-24-2017

Give me another one.

I live in a country of extremely tropical climate (really hot here!), so... Obviously I have to choose the shorts (but anyway, I like them... it's a shame that we can't use it everywhere, haha).

However, I find pants / trousers more elegant and end up combining more with my style of dressing.

Wear and Go!

Majority prefers wearing shorts over trousers due to the fact that its very easy to wear and provides physical ease. It has also become a trend for it adds character to the one who actually wears it. It is comfortable unlike wearing pants.

Personally, I like wearing shorts because it does not make me feel uneasy especially when going out on a hot weather. It is my everyday get-go outfit and it matches with almost everything.

Shorts makes me uncomfortable

As much as shorts looks nice appealing, it's not a good choice attire to me when engaging in sports. I am very sensitive about exposing my body parts to the public and wearing shorts exposes my leg part and this makes me really uncomfortable.

I would only feel comfortable wearing a short exercising indoors as no one but myself would be in such location and once I am done it's straight to bathroom and change up into trousers.

Posted by Heatman on 09-08-2017


These days, you can now casually wear shorts at the mall or any other destination for as long as you like and it is still in style. They're more comfortable to wear and can walk/run freely. I love wearing shorts.

Most of the people now only wear pants when going to work or some personal business but for pleasure, they prefer to wear shorts.

Posted by ColdFlameChris on 11-09-2017


I vote for shorts. Its so casual. It looks cool.

Pants/ Trousers

Pants/ Trousers
Trousers gives our body a befitting covering, they prevent insect bites and direct contact with rough surfaces. Trousers work magic on formal occasions, they give an impressive appearance when we wear them. A lot of trousers are available, and each one meets a specific need, the list is countless and the styles are limitless. During winter, it is a norm to wear trousers owing to their excellent covering, the material requirement varies and the need determines which material is most appropriate. When the weather is hot, light materials are preferable, because they allow air flow easily, and prevent inconveniences associated from excessive sweating.

Trousers are invaluable in preparing for cold seasons, a lot of trousers are available to meet winter requirements, some are extremely thick, others are made with leather, and they help us guard against cold.

You can easily move around in the poles by selecting the appropriate clothes, of which trousers play an estimable role. People who move in space cover their body completely, this prevents radiations from destroying their cells, trousers are definitely part of such outfits.

Trousers provides the necessary leg protection to firefighters, protecting the leg from burns and heat during fire rescue missions is important, because exposure can lead to multiple loss.

• Perfect for formal meetings. • Protects the skin from insect bites. • Comes in befitting styles. • invaluable to soldiers. • Variety of materials are available to select from.

• Restricts knee movements. • Not too good for some sports activities.



Pants for all occasions

Pants look good on most men and I also notice their behaviour changes too. Shorts make them behave informally and that may not go well at all times. This is my observation. There are ofcourse occasions when shorts could be more suitable such as going on picnics.

Pants look better

Since I have some fat on my legs, I like pants. I think jeans are especially flattering or dark pants with tapered legs. I do prefer wearing shorts when the weather is hot, but most of the year I prefer pants.
Posted by kgord on 08-07-2017

Trousers For Me

I love dressing as nicely as possible wherever I go. I always wear slacks, trousers, or at least jeans whenever I go out. I do wear shorts around my home to lounge around in, and to do yard work in. I wear shorts to play sports and to exercise in, but, in general, if you run into me in public, you will never see my white Irish legs sticking out of a pair of shorts. They are too skinny, for one thing, and my pale freckled flesh could blind someone with sunglasses on. So, trousers for me for a variety of reasons.
Posted by JoeMilford on 08-19-2017

More versatile

I wear both but I tend to reach for pants more because I can avoid shaving my legs if I wear them. I also love that pants hide scars that I have on my legs from an incident in my youth. I don't care if I get stares from people about the scars but a lot of the time it's so much easier to just blend in.
Posted by anna on 08-07-2017


Whenever I can I always choose pants. That's not to say that I don't like shorts, because I do. But pants are a lot more formal, you can never go wrong with pants. Plus, they can be super comfortable as well such as joggers or sweatpants, not just jeans. I also don't really like showing off my legs because it's one of the many things I'm self-conscious about. Plus skinny jeans are always in style and go with everything, which is what I always wear.
Posted by Eboudreau17 on 08-08-2017


I think both look okay depending on the location or situation but in general I like the look of pants a lot more because they look a lot more classic and appealing. I also like that they make the person look a lot more handsome in my opinion. The formality of it makes one look a lot more serious and therefore more able to be taken seriously.
Posted by Wubwub on 10-13-2018


I always wear trousers, especially jeans, its my daily attire. There's a variety of jeans with different textures and colors available for every occasion. There are casual jeans which are soft and light. There are tough and heavy working jeans. There's even office jeans which is designed and colored to look like executive trousers. I do wear shorts usually when I'm asleep.
Posted by Kakashi2020 on 02-22-2018


I like them both and but I used to only prefer wearing pants despite just going to casual occasions or just a walk around the mall. Then I bought some shorts for summer because it would not be comfortable to wear pants during the heat. I figured out wearing shorts is comfortable after all. For me, none of them is better than each other since they have their own purposes.
Posted by giovanniiiii on 08-06-2017
If you ask me about what I prefer most attractive in a man, I'd say pants for sure. They are more elegant and distinguished, and without a doubt it's a more polished look.

However, shorts or pants are better or worse according to the occasions they are chosen for; playing sports with pants would be quite silly, wouldn't it? And assisting to a formal meeting with shorts would be disgraceful as well.

Therefore, it's a matter of timing.
Posted by VintageRose on 08-06-2017
This reminds me of my older brother who is always wearing shorts. He works as a horse trainer and his uniform is shorts and sneakers. When he goes to occasions he also wears that attire which I always tell him to wear something different. He has pants, of course, but he said he is more comfortable in wearing shorts so as much as possible he only wears pants for formal occasions.
Posted by Corzhens on 10-13-2018
Both are good and comfortable to wear. It depends on the weather and where it is I am going that would determine which style I would wear though. If I was going to the beach or a pub, for example, I would be happy to wear a pair of shorts if it was a lovely sunny day. If it was cold though, or if I was going somewhere where clothes were important then I would wear trousers or a dress.
Posted by JMS on 08-07-2017
I am comfortable with both. As you can see there seems to be demand for shorts during the summer season. And the trousers are all season fashion. So it depends on what you like or don't like. I think personally I'd prefer the shorts. I guess that's what you can look for when it comes to clothing.
Posted by overcast on 08-07-2017
I think that both are needed in the right situation. When I was younger I was a die hard fan of shorts. Still, I see that the situation dictates the use of both. Shorts are indispensable on a hot day, while pants are more appropriate for work situations, going out during the night and cold days. Also pants are indispensable for riding a motorcycle.
Posted by Marvadaum on 08-07-2017
I am always wearing shorts but sometimes though I would wear pants - it also depends on the occasion. But I really prefer wearing shorts because the weather in our country is most of the time, really hot like right now.
Posted by galegatling on 08-07-2017
They both have their place and time. Shorts are good for the summer and the warm weather. Pants are good during other season and they are more professional for the office and meetings. It would be hard to choose one or that other because they both serve different purposes.
Posted by Sue on 08-07-2017
I wear both because my country has summers and winters and it would be impossible to jump around wearing shorts when it's -10°C. I simply wear what's most comfortable and appropriate depending on the season. For example; right now we are during one of the summer's heat waves so I'm sat in my shorts. I'd burn alive if I'd try to wear the proper trousers, haha. I love being to switch to each one though.
Posted by Mehano on 08-07-2017
I totally agree with Sue, they both have their place and time and I personally like both. Obviously, for work I'm always in proper pants. But when I'm not working, especially during the scorching hot summer days here, I live in my shorts and short skirts and dresses. I do have one pair of formal shorts that are longer in lenghth than your average shorts. I wear those with black tights to work when it's especially hot.
Posted by lushlala on 08-07-2017
It depends on the occasion, circumstances and environment. With that I don't even have to choose sometimes as the occasion speaks for itself. When I'm going to the beach or just relaxing at home, I would wear shorts as they are quite comfortable in this regard. Whenever I'm out and about in the town or working outside, I would definitely wear trousers as they are more protective and formal. Also during a busy working day there's no telling where the day's travailing will take me and I would't want to get caught with my shorts on when I'm suppose to be wearing pants for sure!
Posted by Joteque on 08-07-2017
I love shorts but only at home. Having a greater mobility adds convenience to life, so to speak. But in going out, it is the pants for me. I feel safe wearing pants especially when the place is dusty or worse, there are insects particularly mosquitoes. Even when we travel abroad, I always wear pants and I don't remember wearing shorts when roaming the place.
Posted by Corzhens on 08-07-2017
I will wear shorts or capris in hot weather but I may wear pants depending on the occasion. In cold weather it is better to wear pants since they will keep you warmer. Of course, I have seen people wear shorts in cold weather too and I always think they must be crazy as it seems like their legs would freeze in the colder weather. I guess it is a personal preference whether to wear shorts or pants and it depends on the weather.
Posted by morgoodie on 08-07-2017
I wear pants and trousers for formal occassions but for informal occassions, I like wearing shorts. pants and trousers always make me uncomfortable, where as shorts are easy. However, I cannot wear shorts always. I will have to wear pants and trousers in the cold season. During the summer I wear shorts with a t shirt and slippers. This kind of wear makes me very comfortable.

It depend in occasions or weather if I'm going to wear shorts or trouser. I always wear pants but when in summer where the atmosphere is hot, I always wear shorts.
Posted by rose thornes on 08-08-2017
I don't know if this is really an appropriate comparison to make, especially for people who live in regions where the climate changes drastically during different seasons. If I lived in an area with a constantly warm climate, naturally I would always wear shorts. If I lived in an area with a constantly cold climate, naturally I would always wear pants. However, being I live in a temperate zone which has blisteringly hot summers and frigid winters, I simply adjust to what the weather calls for. Given the option though, I'd probably always wear shorts. They are just far more comfortable.
Posted by Denis_P on 08-08-2017
Well, deciding between shorts or long pants is determined by the temperature that day. If it's going to be super hot, shorts or capri pants. If it's mild, cool, or cold, long pants. I like to be comfortable, Whichever style of leg coverings is going to give me the most comfort on a given day, that's the one I will pick.
Posted by Zyni on 08-08-2017
If it's hotter outside I'll wear shorts, if it's colder I'll wear pants. They're both fashionable and look good on people if they wear them right. I think pants are typically easier to pull off and look good in or at least I feel more comfortable in pants.
Posted by fireball916 on 08-10-2017
Both of these items have right to exist in man`s closet. It is just about the ability to identify properly an occasion and wear clothes accordingly. Office requires dress code of full pants and formal shirts, therefore shorts here would be an inappropriate thing to wear while going out in the park or jogging in pants would be a sort of awkward. Shorts are perfect for walks, shopping, other casual activities.In conclusion, it depends.
Posted by RosieCheeks on 08-11-2017
I like both but just like the law of fashion says They are all used or choosed according to the weather/ Season and Occasion, for example you can't wear trousers at beach, Or wear a short for a meeting witb the CEO.

In the summertime I like shorts. They keep my cool, at the same time, you have different types of shorts that can work for casual or at home settings. Although it does depend on the overall situation I'm in. With pants, usually, you can never go wrong. You can dress them up or down depending on the occasion. So I guess what I'm saying is I like and switch between both.
Posted by Jonathan Solomon on 08-22-2017
I'd say pants are better. One can cover up any flaw with them. Besides, they are much more presentable and better suited for many events as opposed to shorts that only suit comfort and leisure. I think pants are also can fashionable too and therefore one can dress them up or down.
Posted by evash19 on 08-23-2017
I love wearing shorts whenever I'm just at home or going outside somewhere near my home together with my friends to hangout on another house. But whenever I need to go somewhere far, out of city or province, I always travel with pants as it provides me better protection against dirt and sun rays that irritates the skin. I'm kinda quite clumsy so I do got bruises sometimes whenever I'm on an unfamiliar places. Also its kinda embarrassing to show my legs with those hairs and its kinda chilly just wearing shorts on an air-conditioned buses that I use for transport.
Posted by narutos3nn1n on 10-09-2017
I love them both but I like shorts more because they are comfortable to wear. Though I don't wear shorts while traveling but I do prefer wearing shorts as soon I'm at the vacation place. It feels relaxing and it feels I'm home while on vacation.
Posted by Scarlet on 01-22-2018
I prefer to wear shorts. I feel comfortable wearing shorts. I wear shorts always at home.

I like men who wear appropriate clothing when the occasion needs it. I am a woman so I am not into male outfit. What's important for me is that the clothes fit the occasion. I also seem to favor men who wear fashionable clothes.
