Hurley threw a few national pieces into the market for World Cup product, which is easy to do when Nike’s your parent. Considering how well-received the Phantom boardshort is, I’m surprised to see that only three countries were offered: Brazil, France, and USA.
More surprising to me is that I’d think the France and USA shorts would be reversed. I know that the term “denim” was coined in France, but “blue jeans” were first invented and manufactured in America [e.g. Levi’s]. If anyone knows who’s responsible for these at Hurley, ask them because I clearly need to know.
