Very nice vintage shape.

These shorts are original gymwear pieces from the early 1960s. Some have light traces of fading. They have been in storage for decades. Washing and pressing for their first outing is recommended.

On rare occasions there may be a small flaw or blemish ("beauty mark") or other sign of age 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!
