British fashion site to men: Don’t pack the Speedos on your summer holidays

Online fashion store Very says it surveyed 3,000 people to find the worst male summer fashion sins and Speedos and other men’s bikini bathing suits topped the list.

So, Very is urging the so-called “vacuum-packers” who wear the tight suits to leave them at home, and buy a new swimsuit from them, of course.

“As many as one in 10 men say they only go shopping once a year – which may explain why so many men continue to embarrass us with their holiday fashion choices,” according to a Very press release.

The campaign to leave the Speedos at home follows the banning of Speedos at British theme park Alton Towers last year, and I, for one, must say I’m pleased to see the campaign against Speedos expanded to apply outside of the country, as well.

Other men’s summer fashion crimes on Very’s list include the “vacation uniform” of a football (soccer) shirt and shorts, socks with sandals and clashing Hawaiian shirts and shorts.
