    I hear ya. If I could only find the early 70's Quicksilver board shorts that I was saving as as a "collector's item", I could probably sell 'em on eBay. If I do find them and put them on the market, I sure won't breathe a word about having broken wind while wearing them.

    If you find those PM me. A buddy puts together vintage surf art shows and auctions and could help you get rid of them.

    note the traditional curved hat or hairless look sported by the old guys.

    good manners never goes out of style, period. The issue is whether or not people have enough spine to teach their kids what is and is not.

    fashion -that's another story, simply wait 20-25 years without change and you will be the hippest SOB for at least 6 months

    been looking over the latest "squatchin" hats available...would a semi-flat brim be acceptable?

    Will do. Haven't been able to find them. I found my vintage zip-front black neoprene surfing vest from 1975 that I often wore with those trunks. I think it was made by Body Glove.

    I can't help myself. Flat billed caps make you all look like dorks.

    My hats/caps are in my Avatar. I wear them everyplace I go. It's one of the first pieces of clothing I put on in the morning and one of the last I take off before going to bed. Hell I just bordered two more of them. One red and one black. They all say the same thing on them. Old Man with a Brown trout under my handle.

    My wife started me out on these with a Orange one because I was riding my ATV around in the hills during hunting season. It's taken off since then.

    I hope not. I have three of them and just ordered two more. I sent one to Flybill. But I guess he never wears it.
