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

Today I picked up the new magazine Mode by 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.
