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!

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

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

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.

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

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!
