Calvin Klein Shuns Shorts, Says You Have To Sweat For Fashion caught up with Calvin Klein in the Hamptons over the weekend at the 17th annual Watermill Summer Benefit, where it was really, truly hot outside, but Mr. Klein was wearing dark slacks and a white button-down shirt. He would never wear shorts to such an event. In fact, he thumbs his nose at shorts-wearers. Here's what he had to say:

"I mean, there was a time when people really dressed up for this event. Now, maybe it's the weather, maybe it's the humidity, but it's much more casual. You would never have seen men walking around in shorts here. I think it's inappropriate, actually. We're all sweating. That's what happens; you have to sweat sometimes."
