A Short Story

There are two types of men in Australia, those that surf and those that don’t. And when it comes to an Australian summer (…whether you can ride a wave or not) surf shorts rule.

For years the practicality for surfing has equaled long, knee length board shorts in nylon & polyester quick-dry fabrics, worn from the street into the surf.

But now we see that hemlines are rising. Shorts are hitting mid thigh and there is no more loose and baggy! There is a retro feel for this new summer silhouette with shorter, slimmer, printed shorts styled up with wayfarers and a straw Trilby’s. This European feel is finally being adopted by Aussie blokes. The shorter, shorts are still practical for going from street to surf, being fully lined and  come in a plethora of beautiful printed, plain and textured cottons. The board short has finally become fashionable again so we suggest diving in!
