Umm... Did that redhead cut down some primo 1920s bucklebacks to go roller skating?
My coat has nine buttons, but I always fascinate.

boxers and jorts is like socks and sandals LOL

If I was to cut my lvc to have the pocket bags show I think I'd have to cut right up to the seam where the legs meet.

When did the term jorts start? I think I first heard it 15 years ago.
before that just "cut offs" for shorts or "daisy dukes" for short shorts.

Joseph Hill!

Someone in costuming at NBC made that choice- those cinch backs might have seen action in a lot of westerns before Pinky was poured into them.
