Yes, Schnauzers! Not the dogs, but a particular type of semi or demi trouser (or are they shorts?) worn by men of a certain age, whilst on holiday!
Previously known as “Dad’s holiday trousers”, these unusual strides are neither one thing or another – forcing the wearer into indecisiveness and a state of confusion!
There was a previous upper body version in the early nineties called the “Shacket” – I will leave you to work that out – a short-lived phenomenon which should have sealed
the fate of the short/trouser or “Schnauzer”. Unfortunately, they survived in an almost Darwinian manner, despite being inferior to the trouser or the short. If you have them – ditch them!
