The Best Of Boat WorldsTM

We’re digging the look of these new Utility Shorts from Quaker Marine Supply. The short features deep patch pockets that ensure your cell phone and boat keys won’t slip out – an all too common problem on the docks. And they’re built to last, with triple stitched side-seams and 100% Railroad Denim. It features a self belt with d-ring that allows the wearer to easily adjust sizing, which is forgiving thanks to an elasticized back waistline.

It’s good to see all that is happening with Quaker Marine Supply, a company originally founded in 1949 by a Coast Guard veteran named Joe Kadison. QMS has a long history of serving the sea-loving crowd. The company began as an outfitter specializing in marine hardware and clothing. Starting in the sixties, QMS became known for its long-brimmed caps, notably the Swordfish and the Oysterman, with its patent-leather bill. The latter was a favorite of Ernest Hemingway, who wore it duck hunting in Idaho and sport fishing in Cuba and Key West.

The company, after being dormant for a number of years is back at it and focusing on the nautical lifestyle they were originally born into. These shorts are $115 and come in multiple colors.
