"A man should never wear shorts in the city. Flip-flops and shorts in the city are never appropriate. Shorts should only be worn on the tennis court or on the beach." - Tom Ford, from his Five Easy Lessons On How To Be A Gentleman. I do agree on the flip-flops. But c'mon, summer in New York City without shorts? Try waiting for the 6 train on a murderously hot platform some July afternoon and we'll see how fast you cave, Mr. Ford.
