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.

    It appears the subway bedbug problem we've been reporting is getting worse. Commuters already have to contend with sweltering platforms, scurrying rats and packed train cars, and now there's another transit woe: fear of bedbugs.

    Heavy thunderstorms swept through the tri-state on Sunday causing flash floods and lightning strikes that injured 3 people. The three men were struck at Orchard Beach in the Bronx Sunday afternoon and were being treated at a local hospital. Meanwhile, various Labor Day weekend celebrations were interrupted, delayed and even canceled as the U.S. Open tennis tournament had to be postponed and the Electric Zoo musical festival on Randall's Island had to be prematurely shut down.
