It’s kind of hard to believe that these Summer days are numbered. It seems like almost yesterday, we were looking into the fashion trends expected for this Spring/Summer season. If you read any men’s lifestyle magazine today, you’ll read about one thing: Fall 2013. Well, before we start putting on our camel colored trench coats, we still have a couple of months to grab our favorite trunks and head off to the beach. While the sun is still out, you may want to consider m8mate.
The Ukrainian brand sets itself apart with its minimal perspective on men’s underwear and swimwear. In a photo shoot earlier this year, m8mate brought over some models to a Marina for a little summer fun playing around in m8mate Lilo Copp and Ferro trunks. The Ferro trunk ($33) is a simple black stripe, short cut trunk, while the Copp trunk ($33) is red striped. The striped underwear on the Marina is very reminiscent of a retro look that could be found in the movie Grease. The range has a fabric make up of 95% cotton and 5% lycra.
In the shoot, the models play around with hoses and lounge around in their trunks. The trunk does not have a distinct enhancing contoured pouch though there is stitching along the front of the trunk. The cut is on the edge of a trunk and a brief; it shows off skin but provides excellent coverage. Check out the underwear in action in our gallery below.
The m8mate Lilo Copp/Ferro trunk is available in S-XL
SHOP m8mate Lilo Copp/Ferro trunk, $33.00, available at m8mate.com
