    I THINK THESE ARE THE BEST FOR LAWN PARTIES MADE FROM SUPER 90S WOOL. THEY ARE ONSALE NOW FOR 90 ON THE WEBSITE. I WISH THEY WOULD DELIVER HERE. SEE WWW.JPRESSONLINE I WOULD LIKE TO HEAR WHAT SOME NONTRADS THINK.

    wool shorts seem pretty affected but I gues if you are wearing a Bermuda-type outfit (dress shirt, tie, blazer, dress shoes ans shorts), then these are the shorts you need. Shorts for me signify the most casual of casual items and I only wear them in parks, beaches etc. Dress shorts, to me, are an oxymoron.

    I think these shorts in navy with a pink ocbd and white bucks would look great.

    Oh I forgot and navy/red repp tie.

    These? http://www.jpressonline.com/shorts_s...etail.php?ix=0

    They seem okay, but I don't think I'd wear 'em.


    Yes. You don't like them because they are WOOL? They have some nice cotton shorts too but the WOOL ones I think are classic but they only come in navy. I like gurhka shorts in cotton Bills makes the best.

    That's the point, I wouldn't wear a tie with shorts. My take on it is that shorts signify very casual and tie signifies formality. In the same way that I would not wear a dinner jacket with corduroys.

    I think this is normal for a party in the summer. I always win at croquet and I always wear shorts with a repp and blazer.

    I am not thick but I just don't understand what you would wear to a lawn party.
