Spring/Summer 1985 Patagonia 3.5” Baggies Shorts, Yellow (XXL)


Season/Year: Mid-1980s (Approx. 1985)
Tag Size: XL
Waist: 40in-44in
Inseam: 3.5in
Outseam: 14in
Condition Rating: B-
Notes: An awesome pair of very early Patagonia Baggies Shorts in very good preowned vintage condition with signs of normal wear including a few small stains/marks on the back of the shorts. The waistband has lost most of its elasticity bringing the fit of these closer to a modern Mens XXL or 42. Complete with mesh liner, drawstring, and two side pockets.

“A cross between two classics: traditional rugby shorts and loose-fitting swim trunks. The material is a cotton/supplex nylon bi-blend that dries quickly. We like them for swimming, surfing, beach volleyball, ultimate frisbee, sailing and river running. With wide legs for a full range of motion, these shorts feature an elasticized waist with drawstring, a nylon tricot inner brief, two deep on-seam side pockets with pea-sized drain holes, and a rear hip pocket that snaps shut. Put 'em on in May, take 'em off in September. Separate cuts for men and women. Expect shrinkage of 4% in length. Imported” (Patagonia, Spring 1987).
