The Men of the World Cup Wear Shorty-Shorts

By

Earlier this summer, the style gods (who must have received our many offerings) kindly resurrected short-shorts as an actual menswear trend. And who better to embrace it then the leggy men of professional soccer? German player Lukas Podolski tweeted a shot of him and his "bros" casually bro-ing out with their regulation-length pants rolled into the shortest shorts the summer season has seen.

The trend has spread from Germany to France, but no team is more fervent about their high exposure than the gentlemen of Team Chile who, lead by booty-short-clad forward Alexis Sanchez, wear their shorts really short. Click through our slideshow to see the shortiest-shorts of the World Cup season so far.
