Prada’s SS22 menswear show kicks off Thigh-Guy Summer

By now, you will have seen them; you may have even lusted and salivated over them. Thighs! There was that picture of Milo Ventimiglia leaving the gym in a pair of shorts so short you could barely see them, which ostensibly lit the fuse of the Internet’s desire for guys with bare thighs. Just look up #inseam and #5inseam on TikTok, where women are proclaiming to never date Prince Charming if his shorts are longer than five-and-a-half inches. It’s official: Thigh-Guy Summer is upon us. And it’s not just about frayed denim booty shorts (à la Harry Styles) and miniscule marathon gym shorts (a la Paul Mescal). Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons just took it to the runway, offering up uber-luxe, uber-short shorts in Prada’s distinctive retro-wallpaper prints. If yesterday’s Fendi menswear show was about the bare midriff, all ripped abs and abbreviated tailoring, today’s Prada show captured our infatuation with the deliciously fuzzy, indecently exposed bare thigh.
