menswear: uncovering a new erogenous zone?

Is it just me or are boys being a little more daring with their hemlines this summer?

Whether it's flashing a bit of ankle or above-the-knee-cap, we're seeing a whole new side of men. It's a little like the days when a flash of a woman's ankle was erotic! (Or maybe that's just me...)




But you can't deny that whether its the male-half of an uber stylish couple, or hipsters and Chelsea boys alike, the trend is taking hold...






...and apparently going nowhere.


Dolce & Gabbana Spring '11


(and you know it's serious when the New York Times notices!)

I tried to get my boyfriend to try it out, but he resisted. What do you think of the look? I love the bit of polish it adds to an otherwise everyday outfit.

I really like the look, especially how the two first men are styled. However I'm not sure how many men outside of big cities would wear this look but hopefully as it keeps going more will be tempted to try it on for themselves. As you said - it definitely adds a bit of polish to an otherwise everyday outfit.

i think it takes a certain kind of man to pull it off--but when they do, it looks great! polished and casual at the same time. and slightly erotic too! ;)

I'm fine with the rolled up pants to reveal a little ankle but let's keep the man thigh under wraps, right? I don't know a single guy who could pull that off!

Cute post! I love how you think of it as an erogenous zone! :) I like the style. It hasn't reached us down here yet, I hope I'm back before it's gone!

God I love men in cropped pants and short shorts. Maybe it's bc all the boys in this area wear cargo shorts and board shorts in the summer. (gag.) Can I just get a stylish fellow like the ones above??

yes I love it. Actually I was running on the treadmill and I saw a guy walk buy outside and he looked amazing with his pants slightly cuffed/rolled up at the bottom. I wanted to snap a picture but I was running and didn't have a camera :(

John would never expose his ankles wearing pants. Though, he doesn't like skinny jeans either, so...
and as for shorts, he slightly exposes the knee. And at least he has shorts now! and tank tops. phew.

haha
