Talk about colors that REALLY POP these Board Shorts are sensational. The material is more like ultra Suede. The feel is smooth, they're the right thickness and fall just right. The caveat being these are a slim cut so you should have a slim or athletic build.
For most guys the shorts will fall right in the center of knee or below, pull em' up a little higher for above the knee. The belt loops and front tie are well constructed with baseball stitching (the strongest stitch there is) and the overall garment is well tailored and nicely finished.
* No Lining so under gear is up to you - the lack of a lining is plus if you plan to hit the beach or pool with a bathing suit underneath as you'll escape that "wet pants" syndrome when you put them back on.
* Equally nice with a button down shirt or casual Tee for grabbing a drink with friends, or strolling down the streets.
I found the Cyan to be one color that just pops like crazy without that cheesy neon look. Even if you've summered in Alaska these will make you look tan. Remember nothing brings out color like light shades of blue - contrary to popular opinion white washes your tan out whereas blues makes any scald from the sun look great.
Excellent, simple design meets function - pick out some colors you like and you're bound to be pleased. If you like them baggy I would suggest one size larger and you'll be good to go.
