There's nothing to see here.

Back in the late 70's Dolphin tested a "mesh" suit that you could see through for goodness sake. This is nothing. Mountains out of molehills.

Hey in the 70's didn't we all wear flags on most of our stuff??

Back in high school during the late 60's, we would wear out beloved blue jeans until they practically fell apart. We would often use American flag patches as a means to mend them and hold them together. I also remember some of the guys would use an American flag patch to fix the tears they frequently got in the crotch of their jeans. A most unusual display of patriotism to say the least.

I don't think it's the flag so much as the positioning of the crescent moon on these Singapore suits!

Well, they are called banana hammocks...

I am certain that is what the flap is about. Question is, would it have been better if the crescent was in the back?

I agree that the “placement of the symbol" is not exactly in the right spot (no pun intended), but otherwise those W-Polo suits look really cool.

However, I have to make the observation that despite some people's reservation about wearing briefs, they are in fact a lot less “revealing” than jammers or a tech suit.

Just compare the suits in the photo versus guys in jammers -with a rather pointed lump as prominent as the TransAmerica Pyramid on the San Francisco skyline!!! :bolt:
