Shants are the emo version of pants. They are to short to be considered pants and to long be considered shorts, thus recieving the name shants. They are usually worn by emo kids during the winter months because their emo cult doesn't allow them to wear regular pants.
Oh man it's January and negative ten outside, I better wear some shants because im so cool I don't have to wear regular pants to stay warm.

Pants which have holes in the knee. The leg is put through these holes instead of through the leg bottoms. This gives the effect of shorts in the front and pants in the back.
The shants were worn in the summer.

A pair of shorts worn over sweatpants(think rocky balboa). Athough Shants were a popular choice among the fitness obsessed of the late seventees and early eightees, the undying gem of a fashion craze can more than likely be seen amoungst nyc hipsters.
