Beachobatics Shorts, Black (Stretch Woven)
Sold Out (contact us about making one for you)
For a hundred years Beachobatics has been called a "short lived fad of the thirties." Well I don't just want to bring Beachobatics back, I want it in the 2032 Brisbane Olympics!
The style you will know from photos on Bondi Beach in the thirties, particularly those taken by Geoge Caddy, but there are also Max Dupain's photos and Charles Meere's 1940 painting Australian Beach Pattern. The swim shorts you see there, were made from slow drying, heavy wool, with a belt lest the darned things fall off.
These are made from the fastest drying stretch fabric on earth, single layered (except for the bike-friendly crotch). They will let you be bone dry for beachobatics, even if you have just come out of the water.
The belt, while fully functioning and with proper belt loops, is really just a nod to tradition. These shorts are so grippy, there is no way they're coming off, no matter how you might move or allow yourself to get dumped.
- Twice-sewn (overlocked and cover stitched) seams.
- Single layered for fast-drying performance, with extra crotch lining for comfort.
- Crotch seams positioned so they don't touch your bicycle saddle.
- Functioning belt loops.
- The rubberised belt fastens with a Pride logo clasp.
- 143gsm stretch-woven fabric (the same used in FINA approved swim shorts that cost twice as much).
- Every strand of the stretch woven fabric has a core of elastane within a protective casing of strong nylon and polyester.
- All threads are UV and chlorine resistant polyester.
- 0.63mm thick treated rubber is folded into the waist seam (19mm wide) and leg seams (8mm wide) eliminating the need for uncomfortable grip tape.
- Electrostatic rack plating to the buckle contains no heavy metals, for example cadmium, chromium, copper, mercury, nickel or lead.
- Each piece individually cut and sewn in Newcastle East in Australia.
- Design and prototyping by Steven Fleming
