Rugby Shorts Make The Grade

Men's shorts sure didn't change much in the 90's. Cargo shorts in khaki, cinnamon, brown, green and camo became the golden standard, and summer after summer, nobody seemed to come forward with a successor. Over the past few summers, J Crew and Brooks Brothers brought us preppy innovations: more traditional Bermuda shorts with repeating preppy symbols such as ship anchors, sailboats, and swordfish:

Once the cut was popularized, seersucker and love-it-or-hate-it Madras patchwork took the stage:

A great piece of innovation, though, is coming out of Rugby: the same preppy repeat-patterns done in waterproof fabric for swimwear (as evidenced by the blue pair on top):


What's the next men's shorts innovation?

lets see a wider variety of fabics used.

i like the material used in most types of 'surf' shorts; light-weight , quick-drying, cool-as-shit, says 'i don't give a damn, what'

im not into logo's beyond the traditional ralph lauren polo. one is enough.

what about bringing the Speedo from the pool to the street? show off your junk

those green and orange shorts are ugly as hell

white shorts with grey ships? they are really running out of ideas. the least they could do is bring back an exact replica of an old design that did well.

Kavu has a simple well-constructed design.

This blog is great. You provide a wealth of information that about fashion that I would not come across otherwise. Keep up the great work.

As for shorts, I've picked up some floral printed and seer suckers for the summertime.

Hope all is well!

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I make money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my blog to get additional info.

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of hardship when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in big initial investment.
Nowadays, I feel good, I started take up real income.
It's all about how to choose a correct partner who uses your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, and shares the profit with me.

You may get interested, if there are such firms? I have to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:

My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.

I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.

But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on various websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform.
I have heard very good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way
I can import all my wordpress posts into it? Any kind of help would be really appreciated!
