Ronaldo bringing short shorts back

Soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo often appears wearing short shorts and bathing suits. While some call it a "fashion crime," others are obviously flocking to it as stores report a recent spike in sales of short shorts. According to Reuters:

British department stores group Debenhams (DEB.L) said on Thursday sales of skimpy shorts leapt over 117 percent in the last week, after Ronaldo was photographed sporting his skin-tight style on holiday in the United States.

One source tells Reuters he believes the shorter shorts are about to become a "worldwide phenomenon." If it's a good cut and a nice style, the shorter shorts can look just fantastic on a guy; I'd sure welcome the shift!
