    Default Board Shorts / Swimsuit thread

    I'm in need of some new casual swimming attire, especially something that I can lounge around in while sitting on a cruise deck or on the beach. Anyone have a favorite website/brand they wear? I'm thinking that MJ won't allow me to wear my jammers around the cruise deck

    Hopefully this is the thread where people post their favorite photos from the new SI swimsuit edition. EmRat
    So Russell...what do you love about music? To begin with, everything.

    possibly the dumbest thread topic used as an excuse to tell everyone about something else. so basically you are going on a cruise? there are easier ways to let everyone know.

    ps Im going on one, too. We leave in about 4 weeks, should be fun!

    Does it make me old if I really, really, like cruising? We did The Bahamas last year and I am itching to go again. #jealous

    We are jumping on a boat for the Eastern Caribbean Sunday. After a Rexburg winter it's going to feel like paradise. One of our stops is St. Maarten and no suits are required there so that takes care of what board shorts to buy.

    btw, I've already mentioned in one of the cruise threads that I was going cruising...but guess it never hurts to remind everyone.

    So a couple years ago nuthugger shorts seemed a bit popular...you know those tighter fitting board shorts. I think even 'sups sister's company even used to sell them. However, I was never a fan and never purchased any. So are baggier board shorts back in style?

    I use whatever board shorts they are selling at Costco. But I am pretty much the most unfashionable guy here.

    I will probably never go on a cruise because my wife gets really seasick and won't even consider it.

    that style was popular if you looked like Daniel Craig wearing a La Perla coming out of the Italian Riviera. For most others, not so popular.

    Try out this James Glazebrook Production at the New Wimbledon Theatre.



    The musical follows the story of a young man trying to find his sexuality in the uncaring Thatcher years. The play contains scenes of graphic homoeroticism and is not suitable for a younger audience.

    Not as long as some musicals; I applauded.

    I am not surprised that you know this.

    BTW... can anyone recommend a good ocean kayak? I'm going to Aitutaki next week and not sure if the kayaks provided by the resort will be of acceptable quality. Thanks in advance.

    Did you happen to see any ocean kayaks while you were at Costco buying your shorts?

    I currently am not buying anything for a pending trip. I do not need any advice.
    The crux of what has traumatized us about CUF/CG is that we thought they were our friends. And their identity as BYU fans turned out to be the most important thing to them. What empty lives! What a damning indictment of the LDS Church!

    My advice: plan a trip.

    I followed your advice. I'm in need of some new robes and jelly sandals, especially something that I can lounge around in while sitting at the bowling alley bar. Anyone have a favorite website/brand they wear?

    Heading to hawaii soon and wanted to see if there’s been any changes in the board shorts fashion realm over the past couple years. May need something that will make it easy to surf and snorkel, or maybe I should just buy two pair since I’ll be there for over a week. Suggestions welcome.

    Get shorts that are an inch or two above the knee. Long shorts are out.

    Love the Hurley phantom hyperweaves. Picked these up recently and am a huge fan:
