When it comes to more fashion-forward swimwear choices, square-cut swim trunks are hard to beat. They cover up more leg than a swim brief, but only go as low as the pouch. This is what a true square cut looks like. They’re still narrow and plenty sexy, but with a little more discretion for men not used to wearing underwear-level coverage around the pool. This exclusive Jerrad Matthew photoshoot focuses on men’s swim trunks, and why they should be your treasured summer style.
A lot of men still wear long, baggy swim shorts when they go swimming. They’ve had the pair for years and keep it strictly for necessity. But don’t you want to look your best at the beach? You’re showing off your body and you’ve only got one thing to wear, so make it count. Women’s bathing suits have long resembled the cuts of their underwear, and men used to lag far behind. But men’s square-cut swim trunks, especially those with narrow square shapes, are becoming more common.
Square-cut swim trunks are understood to be more masculine – hell, Daniel Craig even worn a bright blue square-cut trunk during his first outing as James Bond in “Casino Royale.” That’s when men’s swim briefs started gaining more popularity. And they’ve continued to do so ever since with brands releasing versatile designs ranging from sporty to flashy, all with the harmlessly sexy square cut.
Model Edward Frame steps into six pairs of men’s swim trunks in the photoshoot below. Each of them has that contemporary square-cut for a stylish edge, and not to mention, a noticeable amount of heat. Square cut men’s swim trunks are almost always made with a low rise waist to keep the modern silhouette. It’s a small touch to make them just provocative enough. And when you’re ripped like Edward is, maybe more than enough. Check out the photoshoot below, and you see the square cut is also great for showing off muscular thighs.
