of the stand out trends for men’s designer fashion was the short suit. In
daring colours and daring lengths, the short suit is a trend that designers
have been playing with for a very long time. A tailored cut to wear with a
matching (or not) blazer is the only way to wear shorts this season.

brights, stripes and paisley prints. The tailored shorts stopped just above the
knee and were paired with a single-breasted blazer. Although most were
matching, some of his collection paired mismatched shorts and blazer
combinations, emphasising the wear-ability of the shorts as smart and casual.
Simons’ shorts stopped mid-thigh and were featured on nearly every look.
Influenced by sportswear, they featured slit detail at the front of the leg. A
bold and audacious look, many of the suits were in bold jewel colours and as

Some clothing brands have a relatively linear progression
in terms of the development of their product ranges; they might start out
providing footwear for gentlemen and later on branch out into
scientifically-designed, ergonomic fitness and general purpose footwear (As
Ecco shoes have done, for example) or expanding a product range to include
different kinds of shirts, like polo-neck as well as t-shirts and so on. Some,
however, have taken a bit of an unusual route into the industry, and Shore
clothing are a case in point.
Simon Crawford, the
founder, was a student at the time so understandably found it a bit difficult
to get money together for his new surf venture in Sussex in the UK-at the time
(in the early 80’s) windsurfing was coming up as a new sport, and people were
wanting to try it out. Simon started by hiring boards out, and doing a bit of
tuition as well. He founded Shore fully later in the 1980’s as a wetsuit
supplier. Soon though, demand started to pick up for surf fashion items as well
as the standard wetsuits and surfboard aspect; surfing and casual fashion began
to get more strongly associated with surfing as a culture with brands such as Quiksilverand
Billabong coming to the fore.
The brand is an action sport and casual-orientated
one; if you visit www.shore.co.uk,
it’s immediately apparent that most of the products have a casual, made-to be
worn feel. A mixture of patterned and non-patterned designs are used in the
gear and the much-vaunted “rider-refined-program” essentially means that
Shore’s own sports steam tests the gear and accessories that they produce under
sporting conditions, something rare in the fashion industry insofar as testing
is concerned. Whilst not applying to every single product, the process makes
for pretty durable clothing.
The animal range also includes a large number of watches,
mostly-surfing-orientated of course but with an emphasis on attempting to
attain style for the active whilst being practical at the same time. When Shore
was initially set up, one of the first innovations they worked on was a watch
strap designed to stop watches from falling off in the sea.-if you want a
reliable, durable watch Shore might be the way to go.
