The Year of Not Buying stuff precludes purchasing objects for 'want' rather than 'need'.
Decency forbids me showing you the state of my gym shorts. Falling apart, with holes in the most innapropriate places.
New shorts have been needed for more than a while.
The problem has been that I hate long shorts and the fashion police have decreed that sports shorts need to be long.
I haven't found any short enough that are also a jersey material. Fussy me.
This tendency to 80's style sports apparel is nothing to do with a specific style choice or the desire to look overly camp (already a colleague has decided to christen me Camp David).
It's simply that I when you train at any decent level, your legs sweat and soggy material against your thighs is not a turn on.I just don't see the point of long shorts when it comes to sport.
So thank God for American Apparel for saving me.
And all hail the new shorts.
