Black Fleece Tennis Shorts
You would think that after browsing the Black Fleece store on Bleeker St. last weekend that I would be smitten with the shoes or suiting, but actually these tennis shorts were my favorite thing from the S/S 2010 collection. The pure cotton pique feels pretty amazing in person and all the sweet Thom Browne details are accounted for. The full grosgrain side seam is actually really classy in person as is the locker loop and coin pocket. Without getting into a huge dialogue about inseam, since that was already done, I'd just like to say that 8" is pretty much exactly what I look for. At 250 bones these are without a doubt more expensive than any shorts I have ever owned, but everyone needs that one pair of shorts you bring to the dry cleaners, right? If you want some Brooks tennis shorts for a whole lot cheaper check these joints out. That's one hell of a sexy single pleat (quite the risque inseam) and is the first step on the long road of becoming one of these stud muffins.
