3/4 length trousers from M&S

By Isabelle on April 12th, 2007

Once summertime arrives out come the hordes of men in 3/4 length trousers. I’m not entirely convinced by them, as they’re very Blue circa 2004 but the alternative are knee length schoolboy shorts which are even harder to carry off. As long as you don’t wear those awful brown leather slides that were all over the high street a couple of years ago I will let 3/4 lengths pass. This tailored pair from Marks and Spencer look quite smart and they’re well worth the £25. The crease and slim cut  keeps them sharp, and they would look great with simple summer canvas shoes and a short sleeved shirt.


We like short shorts (L&P Kiwi ad)

The Aussie contingent at work were going wild over this video, it’s an advert for L&P who are "World famous in New Zealand". L&P, or Lemon and Paeroa is a refreshing carbonated lemon drink, drunk all over New Zealand. The advert shows the rise in popularity of ‘stubbies’ which I always thought was those small bottles of Victoria Bitter that Aussies drink but is in fact slang a particularly tiny type of men’s shorts. You don’t have to be an Aussie to find men in tiny shorts with their beer guts hanging out funny.
