Alexander Wang’s boxing shorts have very deep pockets

We have to confess, it took us quite some time to work out what we were actually looking at here. We knew from the product description that they were “boxing shorts”, but did that mean they had LEGS attached to them? On the OUTSIDE?

When we discovered that the droopy pieces of fabric at the front of the garment were actually pockets, then, we heaved a sigh of relief. And then we heaved a sigh of despair, because seriously? Why would you need such deep pockets on a pair of droopy-looking shorts? Oh yeah, we get it: you’d need them to carry all your money in, on account of how you’d be the kind of person who spends $592 on something that looks like this. It’s all starting to make sense…

    Well, I suppose, some people need so many condoms.

    Actually, deep pockets like that are quite practical as you can stow tissues in them. Not much use to a boxer though unless they’re a bare-knuckle fighter…

    I can only ask “Why?” when looking at the pockets. They make no logical sense to be on boxing shorts.
