FAWCETT SARAPE - Tailored Shorts

2 reviews
Size Guide

Few images in this world are as ingrained in our retinas as the iconic Farrah Fawcett 1976 Swimsuit Poster. In this case, our obsession with it focused on the background of this legendary photo, where what seems to be a painted wall, is actually a Mexican blanket – or Sarape - that was held vertically behind Fawcett as an improvised backdrop during the photos session.

So, we put our BANG! magic to work and came up with an exact replica of that Sarape with its same progression of colors and patterns to turn it into these men’s shorts for the summer. The “Fawcett Sarape” is a Bang! exclusive print. Check out also its matching companion accessory, the “Fawcett Sarape Beach Towel” and get ready to get countless iconic pictures taken with them.


Design and form meet comfort and functionality in a men’s bathing suit. We remixed the construction of men’s classy tailored trousers and came up with these ready-to-wet guys. You can think of BANG! Tailored Shorts as funky dress shorts with swimming powers. These high-quality men swim trunks offer a carefully crafted tailored cut that delivers effortless style with a perfect fit.

    Farrah Fawcett -FAWCETT SARAPE Shorts

    Being a huge fan & collector of Farrah Fawcett when I saw these shorts I had to order them. The classic background from the famous poster now on shorts was a must have for me. The shorts are great I've been wearing them by the pool all summer. Love the colors and great fit. Very happy to have them. I ordered a medium which was too small and Bang customer service was great on sending another pair with pre-paid postage for the pair I needed to return. I also order the blanket which is pretty cool.

    Hey, Salvador! Thank you so much for this feedback. This makes us so happy. Nothing flatters us more than when customers try a BANG! for their first time, and they instantly react like you, and fall in love with our quality and designs. If you already love your first BANG we feel our mission has been accomplished. We hope you really enjoy your new Tailored Shorts in that new print which is a limited edition. (PS: In case you're interested there's a now a new companion Beach Towel that matches specifically that design: https://bangclothes.com/products/fawcett-sarape-towel ).
