Mayor Bloomberg in shorts

As Spring finally arrives on the East Coast, many men are no doubt getting the perverse desire to show off their hairy legs and gnarled knees. But before you reach for the shorts, Izzy beseeches you to keep in mind this image of New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg, who is usually well-dressed. (Note also that His Honor would have looked less goofy had he chosen a slimmer-fitting polo shirt with shorter sleeves.) And at the very least, if you absolutely, positively must wear dress shorts, do your fellow citizens a favor, and avoid white socks please.

  1. Avoid socks altogether.

    And shorter shorts.

    He looks like a bag of potatoes.

  2. Haha! Great post! That guy looks just like my dad. I’m actually trying to get him to dress a little better. I saw some great golfing outfits (my dad’s style) at Lord and Taylor the other day. I’m going to drag him out with me and try to get him some nicer clothes. Wish me luck!

  4. C’mon people, give the guy some credit. He matched shoes with his belt, and very sartorially coordinated shirt with his socks :)

  5. He could have solved most of the issues by just putting on a shirt that is the right size. You can tell it is too big for him by the way it hangs off the shoulder. Same shirt, not in double XL, would probably be fine.

  6. The problem is that if he was wearing a slimmer shirt, it would only accentuate his flabby midsection. The reason older men dress like this is that it hides their belly and lack of muscle tone.

    Also, those aren’t dress shorts. Outside of Bermuda, there really isn’t such a thing as dress shorts. They’re just khakis golf shorts.

    But yes, don’t be afraid to wear dark socks with appropriate shoes.

  7. Oh wow that is hilarious. I just hate guys whering stuff like that, it is very unbecoming of them. The only thing I hate worst of all is the guys that wear those pastel pink shirts with their collar popped up. Nice work on the post!

  8. Hmm, that it just not right. As if the shorts are not bad enough there is the problem with the oh so ugly tucked in look. Ew, this look is a must go, far away!

  9. Not to mention those ungodly hairy legs and the shorts are too short oh yes and the shoes. Ugh there is just nothing right about that guys sense of fashion, he needs quite the adjustment that is for sure!
