Muay Thai shorts are one of the most iconic clothing items of Thailand. It is also one of the top 10 most purchased souvenirs by tourists that visit the nation every year. The shorts have gained popularity from the art of Muay Thai, which is a Thai martial art with an international reputation. Muay Thai can be studied by all citizens for self-protection as it can be used at any time, especially in unexpected emergencies.

Muay Thai shorts hold a design that is very unique, unlike any other shorts. They normally come in a bright metallic color with the name of the boxing stadium or the brand stitched onto the waist area. This year, a global high-end brand “Versace” has chosen a design of Muay Thai boxing shorts to walk on the Milan Men’s Fashion Week for the Versace Fall/Winter 2019 collection.

The models that walked the Thai boxing shorts wore colorful versions of the Muay Thai shorts, including bright pink, metallic Navy, and bright yellow. The Muay Thai shorts are a bright metallic color with the Versace symbol on the sides of the silver silky fabric. There is also the choice of a black version for the everyday lifestyle. On top at the waistband right in the middle is the large Versace brand logo. Right below the Versace name is sparkly stitching of the Versace brand.

There are multiple colors available for purchase with the same metallic design and stitching of the brand. This is a great opportunity to wear Muay Thai shorts as a generally accepted clothing item in daily life. The Muay Thai shorts will help spread the fashion of Muay Thai and hopefully the art of Muay Thai along with it.

For those living abroad who want to be a part of the trend but don’t want to spend the $$$ on Versace’s take on the Muay Thai shorts, there are sellers offering authentic Muay Thai shorts online such as eBay, and through other websites who directly ship from Thailand. There are some Thai boxing websites that offer customized versions for those who want their name and choice of color designed onto the one of a kind Muay Thai shorts.
