I like my trousers to be either incredibly tiny shorts, or something longer than knickerbockers. In between, the Bermuda shorts, zone, that is dead to me. Who wants to see my knees without seeing my thighs?

Also, tweed. I love tweed. Hard to get in Australia.

I think what I am trying to say is that my aesthetic is “golf slattern”.1

Booty shorts



a.k.a. golfing knickers, plus fours, breeks (which I think have less overhang below the knee), plus twos (ditto). Hard to acquire in Australia. But see international suppliers Kings Cross Knickers who do some loud golfing fashion. has some actual nice plaid (although they are in polyester). loudmouthgolf do made-to-order knickerbockers with fabric patterns reminiscent of Windows 3.11 freeware wallpaper, or posterized vomit. So does Royal & Awesome but with more amusing names and a higher cotton content (but only plus twos, not plus fours). Readygolf are a reseller occasionally offering good deals.

  1. Don’t get me wrong, I hate golf, but I really love that 1920s golfer look.↩︎
