Why would anyone wear shorts over pants?

I have a vague acquaintance who wears "sweat shorts" over sweat pants. This is paired with some sort of t-shirt product and sneakers. I know how other people dress is none of my business, but I can't help but find it strange...I've heard of layering a short sleeve t-shirt over long sleeves for warmth/fashion purposes, but shorts over pants (same color too) just makes no sense...not even for warmth...wouldn't boxers/shorts under the pants take care of that.... Any theories?

This person wears this outfit to every occasion, I last saw him for coffee in a fancy hotel on Wall Street. He's a photographer that photographed some clothes for the company I work for.
