Men's fashion: spring summer 2010 trends
Crooked or straight legs, hairless or shaggy calves, slender or elephant ankles: this year every man feels compelled and right to wear Bermuda shorts, regardless of aesthetic details that often torment the other half of the sky.

Sometimes to comment on evil, finding the final result absolutely inelegant, others to appreciate the more casual and informal style.
