Shaki Occupations


Espresso making and jorts are not a safe combo… but, hell, it’s 80 degrees in Chicago (finally)! Go find your favorite pair of pants, cut them off at the knee, and enjoy the weather!

Well, with the weather warming up here in Chicago, it is once again time to turn our heads downward and look at all the jorts people are wearing.

What better way to kick off the Shaki Season than with Vice President Joe Biden himself

“This baby just needs a little scrub down,” said Biden, addressing a tour group as he tucked the sweat-covered top into the belt loop of his cutoff jean shorts. “Gotta get her looking good so I can impress the chicks when I’m cruising down Pennsylvania [Avenue].”

Shaki’s! at Pitchfork.

 

The Pitchfork Music Festival is the G8 of Shaki Summits.  So many cut offs, so little cellphone camera battery life.  Here’s a swell one.

Ahhhh, the morning commute.  Nothing brightens up a Wednesday like seeing a business/pleasure combo that rivals that of a mullett.  I’m talking some pretty sharp-looking pinstripe slacks cut & tastefull ragged right at the knee.  And in a snip of the scissors, Shlakis are born.  (Apologies for the bad pic, I’m trying to remain discreet).

Amazingly.  The second image I came up with is ALSO based out of Atlanta, GA!

Dare I claim, this early on, that Atlanta is the Shaki Capital of the World?

This is Marshall.  Marshall is a theatre set carpenter, whose wardrobe of choice is, according to the Flickr Stream of AtlPropGuy, “…a dark wife beater and cut off khakis”.  Good to know!
