The trunks are the most forgiving of the men’s swimwear selections and for that
reason many men tend to stick to this style. Speedos, showing more skin, are at
the riskier end of the men’s swimwear scale, and only those that are extremely
confident with their bodies should attempt such a style.
Many labels are taking on this new trend with slightly shorter lengths, narrower cuts
and a tailored style. This, in turn, prevents the shorts from ballooning when you get
in the water.
Such styles can also be worn with t-shirts and flip-flops as you head towards the
beach. This style is extremely versatile and as an added bonus it also saves a little
space when it comes to packing for a holiday abroad.
Luxury fashion brands tend to opt for a mid length style short and as a result many
high street stores and online department stores have been following suit. Shorts that
finish just above the knee are flattering on most men. Shorts that have been cut in a
slightly tailored fashion offer a dignified look and therefore suit most silhouettes.
This is a very flattering cut that looks great on most builds, meaning more and more
men are investing in the tailored style for summer. Check out the latest runway looks

At one time, prints and patterns were huge. This year’s style is influenced by the
athletic look and many brands are offering board shorts and swimming trunks in hot
hues or block shades.
