Shorts or Man-Capris?  Cast your vote in the comments section below!


  • totally Man-Capris. less than 25% of the shin is showing, they’re not shorts.

  • Tommy


  • Kevin Conlon

    What? Did Gentilcore decide to go digging for clams after training? Someone get him a shovel and a bucket!

  • Daniel

    Man-Capris, well Capris at least

  • Bob

    Manpris, and never again please!

  • JP

    Did somebody borrow their wife’s pants? Definitely Capri’s, and there is no such thing as “Man-Capri’s” (or at least there shouldn’t be!)

  • Eric

    Man-pris. Very popular in Europe in colors ranging from pink to orange.

  • Kyle

    Man-capri’s. No question. And unless that’s Jason Statham and you’re on the set of the transporter, there’s no way you should let that dude get away with it.

  • Jamie V

    Doesnt matter. Looks bad regardless of what it’s called.

  • Mosley

    Nay. Very, very nay.

  • Andy

    Man Capris. Ridiculous.

  • Vinny V

    We should ask Rafael Nadal what he calls ‘that’.

  • Luke

    Man-Capris is kind of an oxymoron, isn’t it? They are clearly not shorts, and, since Man-Capris don’t exist, they are plain old capris… for women.

  • Scott

    Capris. I’m hoping that his thong isn’t some horrific clashing color. That would just ruin the overall effect.

  • shorts – no, capris – no, acceptable – absolutely not

  • Pants from the kids section.

  • Carrie

    Is that Larrabee? I hear he’s fond of ill-fitting clothes.

  • Jack

    What, did Nadal launch a new denim capri line? Definitely Man Capris 🙁

  • Fred

    Capris. Two thumbs down.

  • Matt B

    Shorts for sure…Granted long denim shorts that probably should never be worn while working out at CP, but I’ll give the man credit, he’s pushing the envelope one day at a time…

  • Steph

    What concerns me more is the orange see my belly button shirt. And I say they are more pedal pusher.

  • Patrick O’Sullivan

    capris, horrible choice

  • Anthony

    If he pulled them down like everyone else they would be just a pair of jeans.

  • Rob

    Neither. They are “jorts” and should only be worn by tourists.

  • Jerry Johnson

    If those are on a man. It is a no go.

  • Scott

    Is he from San Francisco?

  • Jamie

    Hey, I’d give him the benefit of the doubt and say shorts, but those things look a bit fitted at the bottom. At least he isn’t wearing knee high socks too.

  • Jason

    Capris for sure. Pretty baggy for capris. Either way, they’re pretty bad.

  • Avoid the most common deadlifting mistakes
  • 9 - minute instructional video
  • 3 part follow up series
