♛Condition Very nice vintage shape.

These shorts are original gymwear pieces from the early 1960s. They have been in storage for decades. A few have minor traces of fade. Washing for their first outing is recommended.

On rare occasions there may be a small flaw or blemish ("beauty mark") picked up from the decades and adding character, but we look our collections over carefully to only choose cool pieces for you.

Authentically 60-ish years old, these were built to wear hard and last -- true wearable history!
