Quoting Cupcake

I have never noticed that anywhere in the U.S....then again I am married to a man who wears shorts when it is -13 C. outside (The man is weird I tell ya!) I won't wear shorts until it is above 24 C...to each their own;)

When was the last time you checked his wardrobe? Maybe there wasn't any long pants for him to wear at all?!

Quoting tway

When it's 33 degrees here with 99% humidity, everyone wears shorts - whether they're short-shorts, burmudas, baggy shorts, or shorts accompanied by knee-high socks (what's the point??) and sandals. Some people may pass on shorts for religious/modesty issues, but lovely white skirts and headscarves look just as breezy and cool.

Fair comment about loose clothing ... Ever noticed the way Arabs in the Middle East dress?

My home town is one of the most culturally diverse cities in the UK and I see all sorts of people wearing shorts (me excluded - unless of course you give me a pair of sandles and some white ankle socks. . . .werhay)! ;)

yeh just to kinda change the subject but why is it that men always seem to wear t.shirts and cropped trews even when it's freezing-is it coz they are 'ard'!!

I would have to say that it is more of a cultural thing (even more geographical than anything) because here in the US, while I lived in NY and down here in Florida, they all wear shorts and skimpy clothing just as everyone else.

Hey J,

It's a kind of London english(ever seen the TV series East Enders (based on the east end of London) - usually very depressing) way of saying hard as in hard men

It was a simple question based on observations.

Sorry there remarcable- i'll translate for ya! By trews i meant trousers-i just couldn't b.bothered to type it out!

...and by 'ard' i meant hard-a lot of the cockney's use this type of talk-well a lot of men don't pronounce their words properly as they think it's kool but to be honest it's just plain stupid!! lol!

Hope this helps you, tee hee hee!
