    I just had two pair of 10" shorts hemmed to 7 inch inseam. The tailor didn't bat an eye. I think it was about $10 each.

    It's all about proportion (like most things clothing related). I'm 6' with a tall head and torso, and a 30" inseam. I have some 6" Lands' End shorts that visually lengthen my legs.

    7" and shorter seems to be the fashionable trend. If you look at Bonobos offerings for example, they go 5, 7, 9, 11. Personally I prefer 9, but I've seen guys pull of the shorter look really well

    I would think it would be more common. When I googled it barely any info was on the subject.

    That's showing too much leg for my taste. Just personal preference. Also I just purchased shorts for the first time in years, and shorts were being worn at a longer length back then.

    That's just how it was in my youth:

    This should never be an issue because if they're cargo shorts, you take them to goodwill.....not the tailor.
