LOOK AROUND YOU

During warmer months, look around. I notice that tons and tons of guys wear shiny nylon shorts, jerseys, shirts, etc. Okay, they’re probably mainly made of polyester, not nylon, but they feel and look mostly the same.

It’s my assertion that these guys are completely aware of “the nylon obsession,” and they share a part of that, too. Think about it: These guys went to a store, picked them out, maybe tried them on, and then bought them. They rubbed the fabric of the shorts, in the store, between their fingers, and they absolutely had to have enjoyed the feeling. Part of their brain must have responded to the awesome tactile experience silky nylon shorts give. I firmly believe that the thought DID cross their minds: I like the way these feel. I think they’d be comfortable, and probably feel good to wear, too. Otherwise, they would have bought boring cotton shorts. And notice how many guys are either wearing boxers, or no underwear at all, with their nylon shorts. They have to like, or at the least, be aware of the feeling of the smooth fabric on their crotch. (I hate that word, too!)

If you know guys who seem to always wear silky nylon shorts, jerseys, or basketball pants, it is my belief that those guys have The Nylon Obsession. If they wear nylon shorts or pants, or even Under Armour gear, they must be wearing them because either they like the way they look in the nylon-esque clothing, or they like the way it feels against their skin. I’d bet anyone that if you could look through their underwear drawer, you’d find more than a couple pairs of silky briefs, or satin boxers. Why? Because now that they’ve started their own fetish for nylon, they want that feeling on every part of their body. It must be a conscious choice on the part of the individual to seek out nylon clothes. When a guy has more than one pair of nylon pants (i.e. Under Armour, wind pants, etc.), odds are he has his very own case of Nylon Obsession.

So, it is my firm belief that boys/men are absolutely aware of the silky, slick feeling of 100% Nylon, and truly like the way it feels. They like it A LOT.

It’s all a part of The Nylon Obsession.

THE NYLON OBSESSION BEGINNINGS

First off, I’m a guy. I’m 39. I’m straight…….ish. But Of course, everyone is welcome here. Except haters.

When I was ten, I helped out at the neighborhood video store.

One day, this guy walks in wearing the first pair of heavy nylon shorts I’d ever seen. They were red. I couldn’t figure out what was so cool about this dude’s shorts. He was exactly my age, and had nice tan legs. His shorts, to me at the time, looked like they were made out of plastic. They were very stiff and the guy had to keep flattening them down after crouching to look at the lower shelfs. I was completely transfixed.

Yes, I looked like a dork staring at this guy. But he came up and actually introduced himself to me. “Hi. My name’s Christian.” We talked a bit. He was, in fact, my age. He had just moved here, etc. I kept sneaking looks at his shorts. Eventually he said goodbye and left. I brought up the subject to my coworkers. “Hey, did you see that guy?” No one seemed to have noticed. Mark said, “The guy who you were talking to?” Well, I really didn’t want everyone to think I was gay, so I laughed and related our boring conversation. After, I casually said, “Did you see his shorts?! They were, like, made out of plastic or something.” By this point, my friends were starting to get annoyed that I was still talking about this guy’s shorts. At this point I didn’t yet know what NYLON was. At this point, my obsession began. But, not too far away, would come the world’s most amazing fashion fad.
