I thought it might be a joke, but it's not. Crocheted man shorts are a real thing. If you need to buy them, it appears Etsy is the best place to shop. An Etsy shop called Lord von Schmitt is making custom crocheted short orders from recycled vintage afghan blankets, that they say can be turned around in 2 weeks. With 4-1/2 out 5 stars and 93 reviews, I'd say people are very satisfied with their purchase of $68+ crocheted shorts.

The Etsy page describes the item like this:

These crochet shorts are tons of fun!!! Great for running, walking, dancing, or just wearing every day! These one-of-a-kind shorts can easily be worn by a man or a woman, great for festivals, after the slopes, or for morning yoga in the winter.
