Rasta Shorts are a type of pants inspired by people who have dreadlocks, especially those belonging to the reggae music genre. These shorts were popularized by musicians Bob Marley and Peter Tosh among others. They are often associated with the Reggae lifestyle, and are worn by men and women alike.
Rasta Shorts are commonly made out of cotton or polyester fabric and feature a wide elastic waistband and drawstring at the bottom hemline. A pair of Rasta Shorts can cost anywhere between $40-$60 depending on size, style, color and brand.
What is Rasta?
Rastafari is a religion founded by Leonard Howell (1880–1961), a Jamaican-born merchant seaman who came to believe that Haile Selassie was the incarnation of God on Earth. He renamed himself Ras Tafari, meaning “The head of the father”. His followers believed he was the reincarnation of Emperor Haile Selassie I, who died in 1975.
Sports outfits can be a lot of hassle, but with these long shorts there’s no need for that. Just throw on a pair and go running, swimming, weight-lifting, or participate in any other activity that pops in your mind. These shorts won’t let you down!
