decades of ridicule from some, one of fashion’s most divisive
garments — the men’s swimming brief — is making a return. Some
would argue they never went away — beaches and pools in Europe and
Brazil have long been a safe space for fans of the Speedo style. But
sales stats show that budgie smugglers (as the swimming brief is
known in the UK and Australia), are back elsewhere. Speedo — the
original makers of the skimpy swimwear — say that sales are up over
200% this year across Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and US
sales are up more than 55%. Some observers credit renewed interest in
the look to the ongoing prevalence of “ironic style” — as we’ve
seen with Crocs, mullets, and socks with sandals.

It has come out that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were reportedly denied a seat on Air Force One after Queen Elizabeth’s death. According to a report, the couple attempted to hitch a ride back to the US after the Queen’s funeral. The request was reportedly a non-starter and The White House denied the request almost immediately. A source says the request “would have strained relations with the palace and the new king.” President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden were transported to and from the funeral on Air Force One.
