Cotton Canvas Athletic Shorts

Cotton Canvas Athletic Shorts from Spring 1988.
“Today’s high-tech activewear persists in ignoring certain basic human needs: e.g., pockets–essential for hiking or perambulating at large. Our Athletic Shorts are thoughtfully equipped with two side-seam pockets for keys and money, plus a rear one with buttons for wallets or other rectangular impedimenta. The elastic waistband is rather wide, enhancing the easy fit. Made of pre-washed Expedition Cloth, these shorts are as sensible as regular exercise and a lot more convenient.”
