Cousin Smoothy Shorts were created in 1985 by Geoff "Smoothy" Mclean with the idea of bringing a new design to the fashion world, The "reversible short" was born with the ability to flip it inside out. Brilliant. Tens of thousands of shorts later...with Smoothy getting old, he decided to move on. Fast forward 30 years later there is a son of Smoothy. Nash "Junior Smooth" Mclean had the idea to bring his dads old company back to life. Smoothy with his knowledge and experience, an aging hipster, the last of the Windsurfers... combined with the young creative mind of Junior Smooth, shredder, baller, and aspiring mind... are working together to bring you new awesome products in 2016. All locally made in Halifax, Nova Scotia Canada. It's a good story, it's a good life. We are the Short Kings.
