Does anyone else here think 'city shorts' are horrible?

I haven't seen anyone in them looking good. They look like overgrown school boys shorts. YUK!

yes, and there are rows and rows of them reduced in debenhams, I dont think many people do like them!

i liked them for a while, but thanks god i didnt buy any

was passing the high school gates the other day and every teen schoolgirl was wearing a pair of black (uniform is black and red) city shorts

they were all thin, young and fabulous looking

I love these, I wear them with heels and any tops I would normally wear with a skirt. They are comfortable, practical and IMHO look fab on me

Here's some NotanOtter. They're half trousers half shorts. I'd look like Perry in Harry Enfield in them I just know it

I brought some last week and have had lots of favourable comments

TinyGang Mon 15-May-06 14:53:39

I think I'm too pear shaped

only look good on the very thin and fabulous of leg I think
which I am sure all MNers with city shorts are

TinyGang Mon 15-May-06 15:00:45

Oh god, let me not even think about skinny jeans!

I find them vile. I much prefer a skirt.
