basically if you`re only gonna have one pair of shorts and rock them a lot this summer then you should shell out for the maharishis if you like them.

Whats stupid is paying 40pounds for something you think is just average. Get something you can enjoy for a few summers even.


i have the money just trying to cut down and save up.

would there be something in an army surplus store?

i would be wearing them as shorts perma, so woul rather have something with a drawstring.

Yeah army suprlus is your best bet mate. Unless you can get to jungle in covent garden (it still there?). Basically any BDU's you can find will do the trick.

but isnt the conversion rate for a&f $1=£1 so 60$ is £60 which seems pretty much for a&f shorts

The 1st one looks better IMO, FaMeZ, but the prices are a rip-off.

anddy, I think what Jason meant is that A&F have just converted their US prices into UK prices using a 1:1 exchange rate even though the actual exchange rate is something like $2 to every £1.

Oh and the prices are in £ sterling for me too Puzzled
