Just as people didn’t know what to think of the male romper, the RompHim, there’s a new trend in men’s fashion that has a pretty mixed response: lace shorts.
We’re not talking lace overlay. We’re talking pure, see-through slacks.
I’m… not sure what to think of this, honestly, but I am shook.

I’m all for wearing whatever you want, but the whole see-through factor is pretty bizarre to me. I mean, when I try to wear shorts that showed my underwear, you called me a “slut”, but now suddenly it’s ~ cool ~?
I could almost – ALMOST – understand standard Bermuda-type shorts w/ a lace overlay. But you can see the guys' tighty whities thru these

Looks like they are wearing oversized doilies. https://t.co/PwS2WEXfMn

As to be expected, there were a lot of people who weren’t really on board with the whole thing.

Other people were totally behind the trend (or at least supported those who were).
Jayden smith and myself will endorse this

But the true heroes were the ones who had a real vision: we’re talking lace rompers.
