Take a step into the surf vault to get schooled in its history. But jump into a quick lesson on boardshorts, and you’d find style mavens of the ‘80s sporting a shorter and slightly tapered leg. Now, move your time machines back to the present, and proffering that throwback style with a touch of modern day panache is the Billabong Short Leg series!
Dished out in excellent style vision, count on these above-the-knee (17 – 19 inches) boardies to be the perfect companion to your lazy beach days or quick Summer shred. And in going one step further to add on to that bit of retro goodness, you can be sure that these babies don’t skimp on aesthetics either. Besides finding variety in design, worked into selected boardies are vintage fades for that added touch of subtle cool.
The Muted Sublimated boardshorts’ a fine example of what we’re talking about! An all-time favourite of surfer, Jack Freestone, this Platinum X Quad Stretch boardshorts feature sublimated fabric and contrast stripe break up, leg screen prints, pocket screen prints and a striped waistband. Cut-and-Sew techniques have also been introduced to the piece to give it that extra edge.
A true rebirth of the beach shorts. A quintessential classic. #lifesbetterinboardshorts
