Daisy Dukes For Dudes Are A Thing And They’re Dividing The Internet

I’m generally of the opinion that people should wear whatever they want. If you like it and feel comfortable/confident in it, live your best life! However, I will admit that I did have a visceral reaction to the discovery of Daisy Dukes for dudes. Everyone’s favorite fast fashion brand, Shein, is selling extremely short shorts for men, and the Internet isn’t sure how to feel about it. To be honest, neither am I!

The Manfinity Fever City Men Cotton Raw Trim Denim Shorts are only $10.99 and come in sizes up to 44 (XXL), which means even the beefier dudes can enjoy getting their buns out. The shorts have 48 reviews, nearly all of them 5-star, so it’s clear these are a hit with many guys.

“Love the fit in these. [My] booty was popping in these,” one buyer raved. Another wrote, “Hot [as f**k]. I look snatched. Everything was covered except my thighs.” Well, that’s reassuring!

Not everyone is down with the idea of men in very short shorts

Still, people on Twitter aren’t convinced that these should be worn by anyone at all, let alone men.

“They call them Daisy Dudes,” one person joked. Another added: “Yeah…that’s going to be a hard pass for me.” One man questioned how the Daisy Dukes could be considered safe for dudes considering how little fabric there is, writing, “My junk would come out the side to say hi.”

Whatever you think of men in ridiculously short shorts, Shein is simply capitalizing on a trend that’s been around for a few years now. In fact, they were all the rage back in the summer of 2020, when “This Is Us” star Milo Ventimiglia was spotted out in some. That immediately made them, well, if not popular, at least intriguing to many.

Men in Daisy Dukes is unconventional, sure, and it’s not for everyone. However, it’s clear from the microtrend’s continued prevalence (as well as the Shein reviews) that there are plenty of guys who are into the idea. Good for them!
