Summer Must-Haves: Nylon shorts


I have the weirdest, most unlikely obsession with nylon. Yes, I am a die hard fan of Nylon Magazine, which could explain why I am drawn to the material's shiny, slick finish. The origin of this fetish, I cannot say. Maybe it is my love of the famous Prada nylon bags. Maybe it is because I was not alive in the eighties to experience the nylon trend in the height of its popularity. I can experience the style for the first time without worrying that I look like a retro-hot-mess.


Which leads me to my must-have piece of clothing for summer, the nylon Soffe short. Not only a quintessential teenage item, these lightweight shorts have also been a lifesaver on many occasions. They are perfect for all types of unpredictable summer situations: concerts in the sweltering heat, getting stuck outside in the rain, for use as a bathing-suit cover-up at the pool or beach, and spontaneous excursions to amusement parks. I love, love, love these shorts.


Excuse me, I have to go listen to Olivia Newton Jone's "Lets Get Physical" now...

I´m just a guy who also missed the seventies and early eighties nylon era. Don´t know why, but I think nylon shorts the most sexiest piece of clothing there is. Combination of shiny nylon shorts and fine looking girl is just mind blowing. Too bad I´ve never actually met a girl who would also be into nylon shorts. Hope there were more girls aroung who enjoyed wearing these type of shorts.

My wife has several pairs of Soffe nylon shorts and she loves them. She just wears them to be comfortable and I think she's very sexy in them. In my part of the world there called windshorts and lots of people still wear them.
