Scott Brown Wore Pink Leather Shorts On First Date With Wife Gail Huff

By now, you've probably heard about Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown's nude spread in June 1982's Cosmo, but what did the former model wear when clothed? Pink leather shorts, it seems.

Brown's wife and music video star Gail Huff told the New York Times about the couple's first date, to which Brown wore $750 pink leather shorts that he got from walking in a couture show.

Brown explained (via Vanity Fair):

"If I wore these now I'd get shot. But it was the '80s. Pastels were in. It was all pastel-y." The shorts went with his tan at the time and a pair of white shoes that he owned, so he gave them a whirl. "Gail comes out and she's like, 'Those are pink shorts.' I said: 'Yeah, you like them? They're great. Comfortable. Feel this leather."' With this last phrase, he slowly stroked the side of one of his thighs, apparently miming the gesture he made in front of her.
