Here’s the problem with the ultra-light shorts the fellas are wearing these days.
On a hot, sticky, sweat-producing, dripping day in the heart of an Australian summer, they can too easily lead to a major wardrobe malfunction.
First rule of thumb: if you’re wearing white shorts, make sure you’ve got white undershorts.
Or else it’s not pretty.
This fella’s opponent, with the same clothing sponsor, chose black shorts despite the heat (and won).
Believe it or not, at Wimbledon, that code violation would have had the wardrobe police make him change (although they supply alternatives).
