Weird fashion trends for men

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Short shorts are nothing new for women. If you have great legs, they can look amazing. Now men are deciding they want in on the act, and they're not just going short -- they're going super short.

At Dolce and Gabanna, some of the shorts were so short they looked like swim trunks.

Versace showed its fair share of skimpy shorts, too. Even preppy American companies like Bonobos are cranking out shorter shorts. Its 9- and 7-inch versions are now joined by its top selling 5-inch ones. In fact the shorts with the 5-inch inseam are so popular that they come in 19 different colors.

Style expert Patrick Ferreira says women don't have a lock on great legs; if you've got it flaunt it.

And how about that old Seattle favorite: the socks and sandals look? David Beckham thinks it's cool but on the streets of NYC, the consensus was "not so much."

Finally, let's talk about male cleavage (better known as "heaveage"). John Travolta was sporting it in the 1970s. Now it's back. Jude Law and other starts are big fans. Our style expert says go ahead try it: a low-cut shirt on a man can be super sexy. And most people I spoke to agreed.

    The Hess triangle is a tiny piece of private property in Greenwich Village. Manhattan historian Joyce Gold explained the origins of the property: After World War I, New York City seized a beautiful residence and tore it down so it could extend Seventh Avenue and the west side subway below it. The city left the building's owner only a tiny scrap of property so small it requested he donate the triangle to make way for a sidewalk. The man refused, took the city to court and won.
