What's the proper length for golf shorts? Pleats or flat front?

And NO pants or shorts should have pleats!! PERIOD!

I also agree, no pleats on shorts although we do still some pleating on pants but that is becoming more and more rare as well.

Are you playing golf with your boss? Your company's CEO or BOD? An important client? All of those things may matter. In fact, at my company we use it as one of our evaluation points when narrowing down the field of candidates we recruit from undergrad and grad schools into our training programs.

That is too much to ask -> lets leave it at no shorts, no jeans, no military garb and absolutely no flannel.

With the exception of the post with the pic of the guy with the short shorts. Excuse me, as I must go and throw up now....
I've heard that the short shorts look is coming back in style.

Wow... I guess I have been heavily indoctrinated into the SoCal lifestyle, but I do think that golfers should be well-dressed, think and that can include shorts. I'm right with you on the cargos and cutoffs. Slightly below the knee is fashionable and for some knees, preferable, IMO :p.
Personally, I think shorts that don't reach the top of the kneecap are too short. Bend over to put your tee in the ground, and you might be showing off some gems that the rest of us would rather not see.
Also, I'd like to add that there is more than one kind of iron that has a place in your pre-round routine. Wrinkles are not in. Ever. (This should probably go into the pet peeves thread....)

+1. We all have to deal with the realities of our bodies. Otherwise, too many men will end up looking like the overweight mom in the supermarket checkout line who looks like she's torturing her jeans in a manner that would have been forbidden at Guantanamo Bay. Of course, she'd reply, "but these are the jeans that Paris Hilton wears."

Will a poll make clothes fit your body?

Actually, the opposite. You're thinking of pants that don't fit.

Also, there's nothing like the sound of your ball bouncing off a frozen water hazzard, but I'm wearing jeans at that point since my course allows it. They're just happy to have paying customers inthis economy which shouldn't be forgotten in all of this.

Like they are the be all.....please..........
Take a look on tour, there are PLENTY of guys on tour that still wear pleats, and they don't look like bums....
It's almost as if one guy stated that pleats were a virus, and everyone just fell in line....the "Sheep" mentality is amazing.
MOST of my pants and shorts are flat front, when I want to look like Corky I put on the pleated variety......

Should the length end above the kneecap, right at the middle of the kneecap, or below the kneecap?
Should shorts have pleats or a flat front?
Think Richard Simmons. Running shorts with triple pleats to finish the look off. Very classy.
