MFSC Spring 2009 “Lost Locker” Collection: The Shore Shorts

Shorts, Man's, Shore

Shorts, Man's, Shore

Just off the crate, ready for the white sand beaches…

Our Sailor had those custom after spotting a roll of ‘white denim’ hiding in a corner of the MFSC Tailor of the Mombasa Port in Kenya. The fabric was originally loomed to make Naval Base barrack bags and had been printed on the reverse with a red MFSC anchor. Bags? F’gedaboudit! After having his Shore jacket custom tailored with it, there was just enough left to put together a pair of bermudas. His CO made sure he had them stenciled “Not for Deck Duty Use” on the inside. Before long, our sailor hit the beach wearing a white Tshirt, navy deck sneakers and his custom bermudas!
