Retailers are starting to push a new trend in menswear: the short suit.
The ensemble looks like a regular suit from the waist up, with a sport coat over a button-down shirt and sometimes a tie or bowtie. Instead of trousers, however, the suit's bottoms are cropped at the knee.
Here's a helpful image, as if the description itself isn't horrifying enough:

Maybe this will become the groomsman's version of the despised bridesmaid's dress.
Somewhere right now a 70-something man is thinking a short suit is kind of a spiffy, but it really needs a pair of black socks to complete the look.
Then there's the Barneys New York version with chiffon panels. On that, words escape me.
