Default Shorts With Great Reach

Sometimes short men have more reach than their height seems to warrant--the true gorillas of boxing. Sonny Liston comes to mind for a man just over six feet. Mosely and Sam Langford might be two others.

Former minimumweight champion Kermin Guardia was only 5'5", but had a 69" reach... which means, that he would actually out-reach heavyweight king Rocky Marciano ("68")!

TRAINING Shorts i prefer are Venum brand Muai Thai style the reach isnt to bad and slightly above the knee given breathing room with slight cut openings on the sides for excellent breathing and comfortable feel . Ive had my pair for 5 years now and feel and look brand new . Some shorts have longer reaches and do go past the knee .


ADDITIONAL INFO BELOW ON GENERAL SHORTS !


Wearing shorts is one of the best ways to stay cool during the summer. Shorts are perfect for weekend shenanigans, dog walks, the beach, the pool, barbecues, picnics, romantic walks in the park…you get the point.

Shorts are inherently casual, but that doesn’t mean they have to look adolescent and sloppy. So why do most men look so bad wearing shorts?


Well, they’re just not wearing them correctly.*Their shorts don’t fit, and they’re not wearing the right styles.

This post teaches you how to avoid these mistakes so you look amazing wearing shorts like the laid back, stylish gent you are!

How Shorts Should Fit
To make sure your shorts flatter your body type, you need to pay attention to the length AND the width (the leg opening).

Shorts Length
Just like with swim trunks, it’s crucial that your shorts don’t go past your knees. They should stop at the top of your kneecaps (at the longest).

Ideally, your shorts will stop an inch or two above your kneecaps, but this is a matter of personal preference.Just like pants, the length of your shorts is measured along the inseam.*The best length for men under 5’9″ is 7″.

Anything longer than that will*most likely be too long, although you can get away with 9″ shorts if you like them a little longer.

If you’re under 5’5″ or just want to show a little more thigh (highly recommended) you might want to wear 5″ shorts instead.

Shorts Width
After wearing shorts that are too long, the second most common mistake that guys make is wearing shorts that are too wide.

Just like pants, most mass-manufactured shorts will be too wide through the leg. Unless you have thick legs, you’ll need to look for “slim fit” shorts or get your shorts tailored.

You want to avoid the trapezoid silhouette – where your shorts are wider at the bottom than the top. This happens when the leg opening (or circumference) or your shorts is a lot wider than the circumference of your leg. Picking the best shorts usually cators to your body type,really.

Jimmy Bivins - can't think of the dimensions, but he had an unusually long reach for someone his size.

Some impressive reaches here. I didn't realize Hagler was so long armed. The fellas in the clip really have some reach too.
