There were no Hurley Phantom 4D Hyperstretch boardies when your dad was a lad. He simply took a pair of trousers that had worn-through at the knees and then cut them down to size.

An easy way to create a new pair of shorts is to recycle a pair of jeans, just remember that you are creating these pants because they’re comfortable. They shouldn’t stop circulation. So please don’t mess with the Zohan.

The best bit?

You can get away without having any sewing skills.
