Fitted Swim Trunks: 2013’s Best Swimwear Style



As you plan this year’s beach getaways and poolside soirées, consider what trunks you’re packing in your beach bag with our ultimate guide to this summer’s best swimwear.

Now, when we say trunks, we don’t mean the baggy board shorts that were the go-to style of those malaise teenage years. There are a whole host of smartly tailored trunks for the grown-up boys we’ve become. With shorter inseams and fitted legs, these trunks are reminiscent of a time when men’s swim was slim-fitting and tailored, when a distinguished silhouette and comfortable day in the surf were prized above all else.

We couldn’t be more on board with this season’s trend towards the tailored trunk, which has become one of our sartorial faves. From a refined Dolce & Gabbana gingham print to a tailored vintage cut from M. Niii, there are so many options for great, fitted and most of all, fashionable swimwear this summer.

Check out our guide for some of this summer’s best swimwear and let us know which styles you’ll be wearing into the waves!
