The rich are doing it this year.....

Today I picked up the new magazine Mode by Shortlist.com. It's a freebie, but packed with some stylish photography. Interestingly it has an article on "The Tennis Short Returns".

"To find true elegance, as is the case with most things, we must go back in time. Style-wise, the golden years of tennis were the Seventies, and the influence of this decadent decade is back with a vengeance- think Bjorn Borg, John McEnroe and Jimmy Connors. These were spit and swadust dudes. They had torsos like He-Man and yet they donned the shorts of Christopher Robin. An oxymoronic vision granted, yet it looked so, so right."

However this magazine also presents a fashion shoot called Desert Storm which shows a few young men in....very stylish short shorts, albeit ridiculously priced. However that is the point because where the rich go today, the rest of us follow tomorrow. This spread indicates a sea change in attitude towards the stylish look of guys in well fitted short shorts.

I hope this summer to see some fit lads donning them.

Yes.

Actually yesterday early evening as Pete and I were coming home we saw a couple of young teens, I'd guess - off to play in a junior football league and they both had excellently short black soccer shorts which were clearly part of their strip. And his is in provincial England.

This is all a million times better than those awful knee warmers!

Goodness! It might even we worth watching Wimbledon again!

That's good to hear; those long ones are horrible and impractical. Rugby lads have had it better over the last few years but then rugby kit (older and more modern) is generally more appealing.

I agree about Rugby kit, Daniel - there's something so appealing about short shorts on bulgingly-firm thighs.... but it looks as though it might be a better Summer, if the fashion forecast is correct!

Hopefully it'll be a hot summer to encourage the wearing of such too...:)
