The Return Of Jamz?

My jaw almost dropped to the ground after thumbing through my most recent Maxim magazine. I think you’ll have the same reaction to this advertisement for the Quicksilver brand.

Do these shorts look familiar to anyone? I’m concerned the company is trying to resurrect the Jamz/Jams trend of the late 80’s and early 90’s. Yes, I’ll admit (almost with tears running down my face) that I owned a couple pairs myself. Hey, I was just trying to be stylish (I say almost in pain).

We need someone and stop this effort right now. We can’t handle another wave of fluorescent colored shorts hitting the scene. They don’t look so bad when teenagers are wearing them but you know what happens after it’s no longer hip to wear them. People who have no fashion sense start to sport them. It was truly bad enough the first time they were en vogue. We don’t need another go at it.

By the way, if they do come back into style, you won’t see me in a pair of them. Thanks, I realize I’m older now and I’ll leave it up to the high schoolers to make the fashion statements. If things continue however, we may have to start an online petition against this horrible effort.
