Love it, love it, love it, LOL

Why don't we wear things like this anymore?
Just come back from vacation in the Canary Islands, and I think this would have made me stand out in a crowd. A pattern from Viyella, c1930. Hmm, I feel it should be my next project, LOL


Just don't get it wet.

Personally, I would have loved to see you on the beach with that...completely wet.

Perhaps the horizontal stripes made men feel fat? who says we DON'T wear things like this?? Surf's UP Boys, let's go for a dip...

If I wore something like that at the beach, well-meaning people would be pushing me back out into the water to rejoin my pod.

I do not need horizontal stripes to make me look fat. I have enough fat already...

no one speaks of bathing costumes anymore and that truly saddens me. gone too are parisals, spats, waistcoats and driving caps

Actually that suit reminds me that I need to get my bathing suit out and do some mending... I think I wore a hole in the knee of it last year.

"Why don't we wear things like this anymore?" Tell you what, we will if you will... but you've got to go first :-)

My partner would love to have one of those suits. And I think they are pretty cool myself.

Of course, that probably make me the furthest thing from cool, but oh well....

I'm a distance swimmer and I've been thinking about knitting myself a Speedo but that's pretty fetching. I wonder what it would do for my 1600m time :)


steve kadel's picture, i mean, it would give you a lot of drag...

Because it's now all about showing that hard, chiseled, manly physique with a tasteful, light, and safe tan... all in a suitably revealing yet not slutty suit. I personally go for the Speedo shoreline squarecut. It's most flattering on my squarish build....
