Used to get hand made cotton shirts and shoes but 'grew' out of that
and I sleep in my birthday suit...best PJs ever!
Pretty much all of this - but while I do appreciate the image of you sleeping, tattooed, sans culottes, I hope you have upgraded your bed-linen for that direct contact....

You haven't seen my legs, they're unbelievably good.

BTW - above knee is basically to the top of the knee, not skin tight tiny shorts that you'll find at a Blue Marlin.

From my teenage years onwards I spent most of the time dressing either preppy or middle aged from a mixture of CP Company, Barbour, Paul Smith, Paul & Shark, Lacoste, Ralph Lauren, Markies and whatever else has came and gone.

Now, I'm actually middle aged and those alt-right clowns have commandeered chinos and a polo, tend to wear more work wear stuff from Carhartt, Stussy, RRL and lesser known brands like 6876

Though the reality is due to the kids and change in lifestyle, it's shorts from Markies and Debenhams and whatever polo, usually given as a present, comes to hand.

No.
So says the self-confessed slob.

All my shorts are above the knees. Some are even a bit short

I find longer shorts awkward from a proportional perspective. Something about the regular shorts (as i to just above the knees) seems the right balance between skin and cloth. But shorts below the knees? Might as well go the whole way and just wear trousers.

Exactly. Some people take no pride in their appearance.

Shorts
Above or below the knee

Don't tell me, turn ups and pin stripes

Exposure of skin is something I tend to minimise in public, for everyone's benefit I think.

Clothing in the bedroom though, well it's just another obstacle.

Above knee for tailored, below knee for more casual pairs (combat, denim etc)

I don't do tailored shorts so its always below the knee for me.

As for what I wear....

Work stuff, outdooresque active but smartish trousers with either a longsleeve shirt (Next or some other crap) and if I'm out on site one of my many Carhartt polos.

Out and about, Jeans. Have 2 pairs, one casual and one smart. Both next. Used to be big into decent Jeans but I find it so hard to find a decent pair these days I begrudge paying decent cash for them. Wouldn't be seen dead in the tight monstrosities they all seem to be punting these days. Jeans are meant to be roomy not tight or boot cut. Top wise, either a long or short sleaved shirt, Oakley, Vans, Etnies, Hugo Boss, RL, Timberland etc. Nothing too exotic. I have lots of T-shirts, generaly skate or snowboardesque brands..... decent ones, though, not your Quiksilver crap.

Boxers. As a good number of my Calvins were retired a few months ago I did some online research and got a load of the Underarmour ones GQ or whoever had rated as their comfiest boxers. They're decent.

TBH I haven't spent any decent cash on clothes in a long while. I really do need a massive clear out and then go out and drop a few grand.

Only an absolute dognonce wears shorts that don't stop in the centre of the kneecap.
