Dirty peasants! Cover your ankles you WHORE!

Uh...Well I know for a fact that farmers who work in rice fields or paddy fields would roll up their pants up to the thighs or wear shorts to plant rice.

It just makes them look like the filthy peasants they are. Plus they live in a swamp.

Short Shorts

This is the greatest screenshot of The Witcher II that I have ever seen. I'd like to think that the two short-shorts guys are on an adventure with furry, open vest guy and Geralt gets caught up in all their crazy antics.

@oldenglishc: ...or they lost a bet or something - also, short-short/apron combo is pretty hot

I thought I heard somewhere that in such a medieval period long pants were more of a luxury item. Materials being in short supply or just used remains of older clothing.

Who wears shorts shorts?

Actually, contemporary running shorts are pretty short. I'm wearing a pair right now (I'm literally about to go on a run); so maybe these guys were old school runners?

You'd know why if you'd read the books.

Sadly, I was kidding. Although I can't be sure, as I'm only through one book! I'll let you know if it comes up as I read more, ha.

The short-shorts look so odd that i would have believed they were explained in the books. Hilarious.
