Looking for a unique way to upgrade your summer wardrobe? These transparent plastic shorts could be the next big menswear fashion craze.
It's all about going transparent!
Transparent fashion has been growing steadily in womenswear for quite some time. Now, women are convinced more than ever to buy cling-film dresses, see-through trousers, and undies, as well as plastic shoes.
But finally, the plastic craze is now heading into men's wardrobes.
And the internet is enjoying the newest plastic menswear product, called the Berlin Transparent Waterproof Beach Short, created by MaverickSwim.
Yes, they're really something that exists, and you can get yours for only £22.42 ($26.99).
These plastic polyester short features a drawstring opening and a fetching neon lime green trim.
With full transparency, we would recommend wearing the Berlin shorts at the beach. But while the hottest summer is still upon us, I've to ask, why not take it the step further and wear them to your mate's BBQ.
Even so, we wouldn't recommend you go commando in these short.
Although these shorts may seem a new fashion craze, it's worth noting that transparent or see-through shorts aren't an entirely new thing. They have been worn in the fetish scene for yonks.
But this particular menswear could be the tipping point that introduces plastic bottoms into the mainstream.
The company's website says:
"The next generation of transparent beach shorts is here! Berlin waterproof transparent shorts lime are completely see-through and leave it totally up to you if you wanna wear a colorful statement speedo underneath or just go bare for fun!"
"The polyester shorts come with a neon lining that makes you pop out of the crowds!"
MaverickSwim also adds that these shorts are an "exclusive limited edition" so, you'll have to act fast if you want to get your hands on a pair.
We've been experiencing the hottest summer days lately, and it's time to wear clothing that will create sweat-based condensation down there. Women have already done it. Now it's the men's turn.
You can buy these shorts on MaverickSwim, and they offer free delivery to the US, Canada, Australia, UK, Germany, Italy, Israel, and Hong Kong.
Amazon is also selling this transparent menswear. There're plenty of clear short options to choose from on eBay as well.
The shorts have received mixed reactions on Twitter.
One person teased:
"A recipe for sweaty junk..."
"Better wear nothing to save some plastic."
A third mocked:
"It's gonna be a hard no for me."
