ok for a 10yo boy

Kewcumber Wed 16-Jul-08 15:31:25

they'd look lovely on my 2 yr old

I think they are ok on holiday on a relatively buff/tanned body.

Desiderata Wed 16-Jul-08 15:34:34

better than these

My son has some like that

He is 19

Fine for kids or men who like loudish patterns. They are a little bit meh though, I think. Too toned down for true cool brashness and too big flower dominated for the less is more look. Still, for a tenner if you've run out of trunks, who's complaining?

My lovely ds whose 14 has a pair similar in blue hawiian print he loves them

AnotherFineMess Wed 16-Jul-08 15:44:18

grin Bellavita!

And much better than these!! (nicked from Meghalegs on a previous thread).

DH came home with these to take on hol - my first thought was bleuggghhhh, but then I'm no style guru so I thought I would seek the wisdom of the MN style jury!

DH has read all of your replies, laughed in a rather endearing way, and said that he doesn't want to look like a fat, red, tatooed child so will take them back!

bellavita Wed 16-Jul-08 16:25:31

Oh, those are so on trend grin

Oh I like them! Very surfer-y.

Although if your DH is over 25 and not uber fit he is probably making the right move taking them back!

AnAngelWithin Wed 16-Jul-08 16:56:17

my DH has got them blush smile

AnAngelWithin Wed 16-Jul-08 16:59:47

but then my DH is pretty buff and gorgeous anyway, and pretty well toned so they look ok on him!! grin

Fine for a fit tanned lyhte man under the age of 20.

Anything else a big no no.

OverMyDeadBody Wed 16-Jul-08 17:04:13

Yes the shorts are much much better.
