Where the runway meets the street

We dig the comfort and coverage afforded by most boardshorts, but sometimes feel too old to be wearing them—seems like a young man’s game, especially when they are slung low on the hips. These spiffy specimens from Lifetime Collective have us rethinking the age restriction, however, notably the blue guys with the long front pockets. Named Prosseco, these look like safari shorts with enough reserve and class that we can picture Humphrey Bogart diving off the bow of the African Queen in a pair (though he would have them cinched above his belly button, no doubt).

The other styles represented are strong as well, The Paradiso come in navy and burgundy with a striped back pocket for accent, while the 3rd beach come with accents all over them in the form of a triangle print. The stripey Charlie Don’t Surf offer a print reminiscent of 1920s beach suits with a modern fit. Length is good on all of these, and, strangely, we are feeling younger just looking at them. Procure a pair here.
