Is it possible the unknown shorts are Tommy Bahama as well??
Cant find an exact match, but the most recent season has the same odd athleisure waistband and same drawstring.
i have spoken to Tommy Bahama and they confirmed the shorts are not theirs but they do look like Sunspel's Men's Upcycled Marine Plastic Drawstring Swim Short in Navy
There was also a pair of OB trunks from a previous season that matched quite well.. Plain Navy with silver tipped drawstring cords.. Those appeared shorter in length than the Sunspel - which appear to be a bit longer than the screen stills... but of course.. they are from a previous season and will be damned near impossible to snag. I almost picked some up recently on the secondary market but they sold before I pulled the trigger...
I think I remember The bond experience categorically stating that they are not from OB.
As he connections confirmed it.
If it is Sunspel it would great as its so obtainable from them, fingers crossed.
I just hope we solve it soon 😁
Funny that this thread popped up again.
I have been exploring the though that the shorts aren’t swim shorts.
Brunello Cucinelli makes athleisure shorts that have drawstrings and zipped side pockets.
i can’t find iterations from past seasons.
here is an example of the current versions:
Again, obviously not the correct shorts, but opens the possibility that the shorts are Cucinelli:
Think they may be an older season version of the Brunello Cucinelli “Spa” Shorts. Altered by hemming.
interesting as on his NTTD display I noticed he has an OB grey melange t-shirt.
Wow that is very interesting which display was that ?
I don't believe anyone has picked up on that and I do hope so , I love their T shirts
If these do turn out to be Sunspel I am in luck.. Already have a pair of previous season Navy Sunspel trunks but the only difference in mine is that the shorts - while the same color Navy - have royal blue drawstring with the silver tips.. And there is a small buttoned pocket on the front top as well.. minor differences - but hey.. close enough..
Sorry to say but I'm pretty certain the NTTD shorts are not from Sunspel. Have a look at post #11 in the ' NTTD items left to identify' thread, I explain why here: https://www.ajb007.co.uk/discussion/comment/1017580#Comment_1017580
Interesting... I'm curious about those side pockets as in one of the photos you posted it appears to have a sheen to the seam along the pocket as though it were a different material.
Oh, just on his BTS of TBE video on his NTTD mannequin with navy shorts and grey t the t has the white square OB label on the bottom left hem...I suspect it would be known so wouldn't read anything into it, think it's just an indicative outfit.
