Imperial Motion: The Perfect Boardshorts

Ever try on a piece of clothing and think, “Wow, this fits juuust right”? If that gets you stoked, meet Imperial Motion’s new line of board shorts. The magic begins with the drawstring. Unlike in other boardies, it goes all the way through the waistband, allowing you to cinch them any way you want. Just hitting the surf? Tighten up and ride hard. Scarf one too many fish tacos? Let ’em out so your belly can breathe. There’s even a stretchy panel in the fly to ease the transition. IM calls the drawstring approach “Tight N Right.” All we know is, it works.

These shorts also boast a low-profile, zippered mesh pocket for stashing keys and other gear, come in four sweet colorways—Astro, Anchor, Muse, and Stucco—and retail for the equally sweet price of 50 bucks.

Any questions? We’ll be over here watching the waves, sipping a Pacifico, and rocking the most comfortable boardies known to man.
