Coaches Shorts


I was horrified to see my husband had purchased a pair of these and more so when he proceeded to wear them for the entire weekend, exclaiming over their comfort and "retro" stylishness. I explained to him that coaches shorts have special evil powers--that they generate belly fat, kill grass, and make dogs run away--and that he should burn them and say a prayer. But he refused to listen to me.

I'm hoping he'll read what Beth has to say, though, and reconsider.

From photo, they look ok, but are they made of a thick polyester type fabric? If so, UGH.

Kathy, they are reaaaally comfortable lightweight polyester.

ga said...

yea, you should definitely retire those...

Collin Kelley said...

At least he had the sense not to tuck in the t-shirt.

Tania Rochelle said...

Kathy, it's the same fabric--just as you remember it...

Ga, "Retire" is a euphemism, right?

Collin, they don't start tucking the shirt in until they get the trophy belly.

biggy said...

gaga, when you retire the Uggs and the 12x too small sweaters, I'll retire the shorts.

T, I don't really see the trophy belly appearing anytime in the near future. or ever.

You, my dear, are underestimating the powers of the coaches shorts.

Montgomery Maxton said...

Is one of your dogs getting ready to walk into the road?

Tania Rochelle said...

She's running away...

Kathy said...

The same fabric - now I'm concerned and have to agree with GA about retiring those bad boys. I just had flashback to series of coaches in high school.

Although, maybe you can keep wearing them if it's also ok for T to start wearing elastic waist slacks and those swishy fabric sweatsuits.... They too have some special powers.

Those are awesome. If I had something, anything to coach I'd totally sport 'em. Do they call ya "coach" when you wear them?
