Rad or Bad? Shorts Under Jorts, a Fashion Do or Please Don’t?

We subscribe to the notion that an exposed g-string has never looked good on anyone. The overt desperation of a peeping thong, even if it is by La Perla, is quite frankly more embarrassing than alluring. But lately, a new kind of undergarment has been showing up under our favorite denim cutoffs. Halfway between lingerie and bike shorts, sheer and lacy bottoms are getting some time in the fashion spotlight—though we're not sure if they should go back into hiding. But what's your opinion—are shorts under jorts rad? Or are they better off left in the bedroom?
