Men's Board Shorts
The popularity of board shorts originated with surfers. Their aquatic origins resulted in the moniker “bordies” as slang due to their talent on the surfboard. The name became a tribute to the surfing community that popularized their fashion. Today, board shorts have become standard ware on many beaches around the world.What made them appeal to the surfer set was their design. Made of a polyester, nylon, and/or a spandex blend, they are lightweight, comfortable, breath easily, and dry quickly. There is no elastic waistband. They are typically held up by a drawstring, and the waist is usually more rigid than that of other swim trunks. This ensures the suit isn’t pulled off if the surfer is yanked under a wave and tossed around. Board shorts may or may not contain a fly. The fly is usually made of Velcro or a faux fly.Like squarecuts or trunks, board short leggings reach down to the thighs and terminate close to the knees. They can be baggy or they can be loose fitting. Their overall design is one that promotes movement without restriction.Board Shorts Styles & DesignsAt Nuwear, we specialize in Vuthy board shorts because of Vuthey’s innovative design and sporty style.
