Comment:
At least these older teen boys/young men in medium blue, dark blue and orange shorts. Maybe not all are shiny like the grey ones. Pics from s4e4 “The Team”. Also a man in blue shorts in s4e8. The orange shorts of the blond teen are quite interesting. Is this a boy?

I don’t know all episodes but doubt for much more and better scenes.

Also on my bib overalls blog (boy, girl, rating 5).

Rating 2-3 for these brief scenes of older teen boys.

Update: Meatballs

I found another very good screenshot of this famous 1979 movie on another hard disc showing 2 boys in white shiny shorts at 17 minutes, I think one is from Adidas.

I own the DVD but forgot to recheck it completetly and currently, I’m very busy.

It’s mainly of interest of 14 or 15 yo Chris Makepeace (also in white and other shorts), but I don’t like him and his haircut.

So still needs to be checked, but I think there are mainly older “teen boys”.

Main entry, currently rating 8 (maybe a bit lower)

DeAnna Robbins in tight, medium blue shiny Adidas shorts with yellow stripes and boarders. 2 short scenes only. Also a young man in tighty whiteys.

Probably quite interesting to those who like young ladies.

To me rating 3 only.

Comment:
Finally some very good shiny Adidas shorts. By coincidence, or better during research, I found this interesting series. (Teen) boys and girls mainly in white shorts. 70s style white shorts with a red stripe and boarders but also already shiny, white Adidas shorts with dark blue stripes, also sitting.

Mainly in the studio doing sports but also other kids outside in other colored shorts like blue and light green (not Adidas).

I don’t know all episodes. ACCESS Network and TVOntario 40×10 minutes.

Rating at least 8 for now. They should release this on DVD.

Comment:
Some boys and teen boys in different, tight shorts including white, black and blue. Not sure about the fabric. Probably not or not that shiny. Looks like typical Rugby clothes. Pic from s2e9.

Also older teen boys or young men in light blue, yellow, dark blue, black and white shorts in s2e20. Maybe others in shorts in other episodes?

I don’t know all episodes. Sorry, I’m running out of good movies.

Rating 4 for now only.

Also on my Western blog (rating 4).

Comment:
David Mendenhall in 2 scenes in dark blue shorts with a rear pocket, maybe tennis shorts, maybe not shiny. 2 different shirts, including a white Adidas shirt with red stripes. Scenes at 36 and 41 minutes, including sitting.

Interesting movie, plot and handsome actor, unfortunately very few and brief shorts scenes. Has been aired some days ago, but I forgot to record it. So needs to be rechecked more carefully at slow speed.

So rating 3-4 only. Movie much higher ~6-7.

Comment: At least one boy in longer red shorts, maybe shiny shorts. And another one on sitting in yellow, looks like shiny shorts. Also swiming in tighty whiteys and cycling scenes. Set in 1989.

I recently have updated the 1990 movie on my bib overalls blog (boy, girl rating 5).

So I found trailers and teasers of this remake.

Of course, I can’t say much more yet. Probably not as good as the original movie (at least not the actors) but at least interesting shorts.

Rating maybe 6-7 for now, maybe even higher (4 before I noticed the yellow shorts). But they also wore other clothes. Also a girl in shortalls, soon on my bib overalls blog.

As the title “It” might be hard to find later, I have to add Stephen King.

Langnese (1983 commercial)

Year: 1983 ?
Year in film: 1983 ?
Country: Germany
Who in shorts: teen boys ~16 ?
Who in shorts 2: young men, women
Available on DVD: no ?

Clothing occurence: medium
Rating:  4/10
Rating: ****
Comment: As announced, this earlier Langnese commercial. First, some older teen boys, maybe playing Basketball in different shorts, including dark blue, red and yellow.

A young lady cycling in tight shiny dark blue shorts (rear view) and at least some men jogging in 70s style red shorts. Maybe some more persons?

Probably most straight guys like the cycling lady. Not bad, but also very brief scene. The other boys or young men are less of interest.

The 1985 commercial (rating 8) is much better, including the song.

Rating 4 for this one. There are some more Lagnese, also later commercials, but I haven’t checked those.

Update: Unknown 11 – Australian movie or series

unknown11cunknown11d

I found these 2 pics, which are obviously from the same series (or movie). Also titled Australian 1990. Note, the same garden door. I still haven’t found any clips.

Maybe this was just aired in 1990 in Germany. Looks more like an early 1980s series according to the old cars. Also rare, the boy has crossed chains on his chest.

Somehow the blonde boy looks familiar. It must be much easier now, to find this one.
