A Necessary Reblog

I'm not sure how many of you guys read Joe Gannon's blog (and you definitely should), but I just can't take the risk of not posting on these because they are just that good.  Joe really hit the nail on the head and did all the legwork so I'll let him tell you about it:

"When I stumbled on these beauty’s I was looking for something with a short inseam, a natural fiber, and a hint of the classic.  What I wasn’t expecting was to find a garment made over 2 decades ago from Indian bleeding madras, having been kept safe (saved no less) by O’Connell’s in their Buffalo storeroom.  Speaking to Ethan at O’Connell’s he revealed that most of the swim shorts they have listed were actually made 20 years ago by (if his memory serves) GIT.  The whales and seersucker versions are more recent additions to the line, made within the last 5 years.  The details on these look to be spectacular.  A non-elastic waistband, solid brass waist buckle, and adjustable sliding side tabs are just a few of the beautiful touches thrown in."

Buy them all here before they are gone. Forever.
