the length is getting longer relatively. i suppose many of us do not put the end of tops inside and in order to balance the length of top, its getting a bit longer.

if you can't tell which is new/old, then it doesn't make any difference to you...

anyway, new model will become old someday

I've invested in one adi*** short on 2006 and is still used very frequently, almost daily, but necessarily for races!

Its split shorts, can be considered v short, nearly like FBT ones too... And it gets literally soaking wet once I hit above 18km!

Sometimes, short is just a relative measure. For example, this short discussion on shorts. :P

I'm new to this forum but seeing this thread stretch on just how short shorts are is tickling me funny bone... :Tounge: Here's my chance to add to the thread. I'm using the FBT shorts for a 1.7m tall, 74kg runner, and I'm wearing size XL, the side's v-cut, not the curvy-cut, coz the v-cut is less revealing and more subdued for a conservative like me. Note the curvy-cut XL actually ends up smaller than the v-cut's X (don't ask me why they designed it as such). It's cheap and quite lasting, can buy at least 2-3 pairs versus one Adidas shorts and yeah, FBTs don't stick, but the latest batches are thicker and heavier but when you're used to it's weight, new or old, that extra grams don't matter.

I am 1.83cm tall, and yet I wear them regularly. I am completely comfortable with them probably coz I have been wearing as home wear since my teens, and I cant care less if my friends joke about it. No one stares when I go run through even crowded places. It is much more common than you think, and the FBT shorts has actually been popular with guys for a long long time until the sudden female invasion in recent years. So in no way do I consider them female wear.

I kept some of my oldest ones which I compared the length and found that it hasen't actually changed much over almost 3 decades. The only major change was the material used (during those times, most sports wear were in thick, pure nylon, and not the breathable, porous material we have today).

Yup, you are right! :)

In fact, my FBT shorts were amongst the first I could buy at that time with my peanuts allowance. At least they have remained affordable all these years, and that was probably why I stayed loyal to them. :D

BTW, yes it is true that the white versions can be see-through when wet. But I remember it was never an issue back in those days when it was the old, solid material, and we had quite a number of officers in the various uniformed services wearing them!

Nowadays, FBT have a lot of sexy shorts and singlets, it is very hard to differentiate Male or Female sport wears. When I asked, the sales assistant always said "unisex". Anyway, I look carefully and make sure it is unisex before I pay.

Their latest product line does have male/female indicators liao.

Anyway I wont consider FBT singlets as particularly sexy, when they are often thicker and less revealing then those provided by their competitors. Their shorts may be "sexy" to some, but that is if you compare their shorts with the berms of other brands. Try comparing them with the running shorts and see the (lack of a) difference!

    • Thanks for the update bro! Now I can mark my calendar.
    • Mayor says coronavirus should not affect Boston Marathon (info extracted: mybestruns.com)     The Boston Marathon has never been canceled or postponed in its 122-year history, although it was stopped in 2013 after two bombs were detonated near the finish.  The Boston Marathon had never been canceled or postponed, even by snow squalls in 1925, 1961, and 1967, sleet in 1907, or 100-degree heat in 1905.
    • Thanks @lonewolf, SRY is "fighting" an uphill battle against pending lawsuits. Seems like he is determined to "correct" the wrongs on accusation with the "right" facts. Let's see how the events unfold, legally. SRY is an inspired athlete for all,  battle against vs The Rest of the World on his plans on breaking his own PBs. Again, we report facts, and we let the Courts decide on the legal verdicts. Just enjoy SRY's journey against all odds.
    • I originally started this thread to discuss SRY's omission from the 2019 SEA Games. But since that event has long past and the thread has taken a new life on its own, I have changed the Title of the thread to correctly reflect the current situation - Soh Rui Yong vs The Rest of the World : ) Thanks for the update, Uncle!
