This is certainly a…statement.

In news from the world of fashion, it seems clear plastic beach shorts for men now exist…and unsurprisingly they leave very little to the imagination.

Made by Maverick Swimwear, the shorts are mostly see-through, but with neon lime green lining and a lime green drawstring.

The  company’s website  says: “The next generation of transparent beach shorts is here! Berlin waterproof transparent shorts lime leave it totally up totally up to you if you wanna wear a colourful statement speedo underneath or just go bare for fun!

“The polyester shorts come with neon lining that makes you pop our of the crowds!”

Divided opinions.

So far, reaction to the shorts seems to be mainly negative, with Twitter users have branded them “tacky”.

One person wrote: “Why…just why?”

Another commented: “I’ll just use a clear carrier bag. Same job and only 5p!”

“It’s gonna be a hard no for me,” replied someone else.

A fourth person added that the shorts were “a recipe for sweaty junk”.

A fifth simply said: “God no! So tacky!”

Others joked that they would only wear them if they lost a bet with their friends.

What are your thoughts on them?
