Black & White Japanese Print Cotton Shorts

A Global-Warming-Proof Garment

If we're to believe the likes of Al Gore, the Mayans, and Channel Six weatherman Sleet Haley, a catastrophic combination of face-melting heat and end-of-the-world flooding is just around the corner. So you may want to consider preparing for the worst, starting with your wardrobe.

In light of the coming climate apocalypse, we tasked our fashion engineers to develop new trousers to keep legs cool, no matter how much of a hellish, greenhouse-gassed inferno our atmosphere becomes. We also wanted a garment that could stay dry, even as oceans levels rise precariously toward knee level.

The result: a revolutionary pant design that we call "shorts."

We implore everyone — even trouser traditionalists and those suffering shy-shin syndrome — to put aside their apprehension and embrace this exciting new technology. Before it's too late!
