Nothing about these scream 1984. Could we already be coming around to this fashion era again? I just made a pair of unisex shorts from a 1985 pattern. Great seersucker!

Very nice. The fabric is lovely, and the Velcro fly is a good idea.

Great shorts! I have an old photo of my father wearing swimming shorts very similar to these, especially the wee coin pocket, except his have a narrow, matching belt.

Nice trunks! I much prefer the look of classic swim shorts like these to the super-baggy board shorts so many men wear today.

The blond wig makes it look retro California. Nice outfit.

so I'm curious, will you actually wear these swimming, or just for knock-about? they look great by the way, as does the matching shirt, & I absolutely LOVE the fabric (& the wig)!! keep 'em coming!
