A while ago I photographed this fella who appeared to be comfortably — or perhaps otherwise — in possession of Tokyo’s shortest shorts.
It turns out, however, that he isn’t, as the man below boasts what can only be described as the shortest of very short, short shorts. A bold look that’s boosted even further by his cheeky little butterfly tattoo.
😮 Nice butt!
Certainly a bottom he’s immensely proud of!
Oh, God, no! Oh! No! God! No! Oh God, oh God, oh God! Oh, God, no!
So as far as fashion goes, is it fair to assume that you think its hit rock bottom…?
I’m at a total loss of words. Lol. I can’t imagine why anyone male or female would want to wear these out in public. What were people’s reaction to his clothes? But on second thought I’m sure many people just pretended he didn’t exist.
It’s quite a look, isn’t it? Still pretty warm though, so at least it’s not wholly impractical.
But yeah, apart from some double takes, he was mostly ignored. I got more looks for taking his photo!
Character by the buttload.
And a fair bit of brass of your own to raise your camera from that angle at such proximity.
And it’s not showing anything you don’t see in a sumo ring. In fact in square inches of visible ham considerably less 🙂
Indeed. Even more bravery too. Japan may well be very accepting — or perhaps more accurately, good at pretending something doesn’t exist — but still, to potter about like this takes guts. I was going to say balls, but I could pretty much see them anyway!
My part, on the other hand, was easy. The only difficulty being trying to nail the focus while walking behind him, although the butterfly helped in that respect!
Not something you see everyday eh?
Oh my goodness! What a contrast between this “show off” guy and the girl at the left, utterly dressed. Times change!
Well done Lee.
Yes, it really is quite a contrast, isn’t it? Very nice to get that element in the photo as well, and not just the main subject.
Ouch! That looks painful. The choice of shoes and knee-socks is equally troubling.
Yes, they didn’t exactly look designed for comfort. Things at the similarly short front were rather, erm, squashed up!
That guy absolutely must have exhibitionist tendencies since I cannot imagine those shorts being comfortable to wear!
Yes, I think there’s absolutely no doubt about that whatsoever!
Is this a current fad?
Happy to confirm that it’s not. Just the two fellas as far as I know. Or at least I hope so!

I never saw this Guy when I was in Tokyo, but it is a very big city. If I had, I would have invited him out to Lunch. I love Guys who are an exception to the rule.

I love this chap! He walks all proud of himself … and of his butt.
If guys can wear them I would give them a try. But I would wear a pair of tights under: it would still show my body shape but hide any ugliness of my butt.
I give him credit for wearing what he eants and not being ashamed of it. If woman can go around with short skirts and these kind of short shorts, why cant a guy whise proud of his body?
