Bonobos. Their Highland Short comes in an 8" inseam with a bunch of color choices. I can't say enough good things about them, I ended up buying 5 pairs and have been living in these shorts since May.

I've been wearing Bonobos since they first started making golf clothes (probably 4-5 years now) and they have the best combination of fit and materials that I've been able to find anywhere.

Ralph Lauren has a few options at 9"or shorter I think and vineyard vines has a performance short with an 8" inseam...I'm sure there are a lot of others.

This ^^^^
bought a couple of Ralph Lauren Polo 9" inseam shorts at the local outlet, $65 retail, got them for $20 on sale, they are perfect, very good quality, too bad they didn't have more of a selection.  they also had 6".

The 10.5" inseam (in this picture, and yes, I know it will vary based on height/leg length) is BARELY acceptable, for swim trunks. I cant imagine why any man would want anything shorter than that.

The 9" inseam fits like the 10.5" inseam on me, I'm 5' 7" (well maybe 5' 7 1/2").

This coming from forum name bigred90gt  :rofl:  Plus, from your pic it looks like you are wearing 12inch inseam shorts....that would probably look closer to pants on us short guys. :D

because I'm 5'9 and any inseam longer than 7" goes below my knee. And you cant trust a man with shorts below his knees.

also the model in these photos is probably like 6'4 with longer quads than normal.

The forum name has nothing to do with me. It was the first screen name I ever had on a mustang forum probably 15 years ago. I had a red 90 mustang GT, and a ghetto friend who referred to everything as "big", hence the name.

I honestly don't know what size that inseam is. I've never looked at inseam length (i have a hard time finding clothes that fit my waist and fit over my thighs, so I don't buy pants/shorts online). I put them on, and as long as they end somewhere on my knees, if they fit otherwise, I buy them. I just think shorts should at the very least come to mid knee cap, preferably cover the knee cap, when standing. It seems society is trending back to the early 80's NBA shorty shorts look. That wasn't a good look then, and it still isn't now.

And I feel the same way about guys with shorts that end above their knee. Most of the people wearing the short shorts, that I encounter at least, come off as complete and total chuds. They're usually the guys with the plaid button down shirt a size or so too small, or the popped collar with the white sunglasses. Might be good guys, just not my crowd.

And for the record, I never said they should go below the knee. Mid knee is perfect, top of the kneecap to bottom is acceptable. Anything either direction of that just looks goofy.

Your opinion on men's fashion holds up to about the year 1999. Nearly 20 years later, you're definitely in the minority with that mindset. No shorts should ever touch the knee cap, let alone extend below it.

Me personally? If my shorts go anywhere near my knee cap, they're much too long.

I'm not looking forward to a future of "dudes" in shorty shorts. For the desire to remain civil, I won't bother giving my opinion on those. Suffice it to say it's not a good one. I'm not sure how you, or anyone else, could possibly think that looks good in any way for a man.

amongst your circle of hipster friends, I might well be the minority on thinking that is a good look. But anywhere where men dress like men, not so much.

Give Nike modern woven shorts a try. They have a bunch in ebay for cheap. I'm 5'10 and they are right above the knee. I too also agree when shorts touch / cover my knee, feels baggy / odd. I can't wear anything lower / baggy like that. The modern / slim / tailored look is in. I'm slim in general and majority of the clothing companies have clothes that fit baggy even if it's small waist / small chest.

Vineyard Vines Breaker shorts are 8" inseam. They're made out of a hybrid board short material, so they're super light, stretchy, water resistant/wicking, have mesh pockets, but are styled like any chino short with belt loops but have a slimmer fit. I'm 5'11, and they hit about an inch above the knee. I wear them for caddying every day because they're the most breathable/coolest shorts I've ever owned. would definitely recommend.

I need to check out VV. I just saw they have their own logo'd Pro Vs on their website too. That's pretty cool!

Just because you prefer the look of capris doesn't mean the rest of us should follow suit.  In all seriousness, I just think shorts that fall below the top of the kneecap look sloppy.  While, I personally wouldn't rock the 5" inseams I think that look is infinitely better looking than shorts below the knee.  But to each his own.

Vineyard Vines are really good, like that they're also using the elastic/waistband liner to help keep your shirt tucked in.  But Devereux are actually priced better ($75 vs $85), come in separate lengths (8.5" and 9.5") and bigger variety of colors and patterns

Can anyone comment on the pocket depth of the Bonobos Highland shorts? I have some older shorts that have deep pockets and my sweaty hand always get stuck in there pulling out tees, ball, marker, etc. Under Amour has figured it out with the shorter pockets, but the material shows sweat really badly.

I know this thread is several months old.  When I read it the first time, someone had already posted about having shorts altered to the length you want.  10.5" shorts hit me just below mid-knee and are ok for most anything in golf except when I take my putting stance and they pull on my knee.  I have always had my shorts altered to 9" inseam.  Found some Fila shorts at Kohls online.  They have 2 offerings.  One is Fila Driver and the other is Fila Fairway.  Both have 9" inseams and are very comfortable.  So, if looking for 9" inseam shorts for golf, I would recommend looking into these at Kohls online.  They may have them in stores...no idea.  I rarely shop in stores any more.
