I picked up the newest issue of Interweave Crochet magazine today and found an article showing guys wearing shorts like these... THESE!!!!!
Now I know some hipster girl started making and selling these things on Etsy and that some idiot writing for Salon or the Huffington Post tried to proclaim that these shorts made up of your granny's old afghans are the newest cool thing, but no. They just look ridiculous, like you're wearing your granny's old afghan. That's not a good luck for anyone. Just thinking about how hot and itchy all that awful cheap Red Heart yarn is against your thighs is enough to make this a no-no for anyone.
