    In the film, December Boys, which takes place in 1960s Australia, the boys are wearing a interesting style of swimsuit. Basically they look like plain brown shorts with a tan belt, but there's an extra piece of fabric that goes across the front, so that it looks almost like a miniskirt. I wonder if that extra fabric was intended for modesty; if so, it doesn't work very well, because the way it stretches flat across the front, it actually shows off the bulge.

    I know this is a long shot, but is anyone familiar with this style of swimsuit? Are they still made? If so, do you know who makes them and/or where they can be bought? Thanks.
