Lido Shorts

Running from Spring 1987 to Spring 1988, the Lido shorts came in a wide variety of colors.

From the catalogue: “How do you make a great pair of shorts even better? By lengthening and widening the leg ever so subtly, by making the pockets vanish into side seams, by streamlining the back pocket and eliminating crease-prone cuffs. Eccola–the ever-popular Riviera Shorts of yore, stylishly transfigured by an escapade on the Italian side of the border.”
