By 'here' I mean this tux stops at my upper thigh, which is good enough if your cocktail events are in subtropical weather like Houston, Texas. Or maybe you're ringing in the new year at some exotic sandy rain forested island where fully covered legs isn't required. Whatever the case may be, I like to think of shorts as a mini dress alternative that you can bend over in, I mean dance comfortably, or get in and out of cabs in, without flashing anyone ;)
