Today in fashion, retro is in. Gull Lake High School students often roam the halls in attire more fit for another era. As the “dad outfit” (and even “grandad outfit”) trend comes into full swing, further proof of this reversion can be found with our very own boys’ basketball team. As of last year, the promising group’s basketball shorts have seemingly begun to shrink. The reason for this: a rolling of the trunks waistband; in several cases, multiple times.
After the 20th century came to a close, NBA and college basketball teams switched their game uniform from the traditional (and previously untouched) shorter cut shorts (see image 1) to the emerging streetball style. These shorts came down to the players’ knees (or lower) and had a significantly looser fit.
In recent years, however, there’s been a change.
“Most every college or NBA player I have seen wears high basketball shorts,” said returning senior phenom William Weiss.
