We get it, not every man is comfortable wearing a swim brief out in public. They provide the bare minimum of coverage, and leave little to the imagination. But if you want swimwear that’s on trend and on point, prepare to bare a little bit of skin. Radical Energy swimwear comes in with two trunk styles so sharp, they give swim briefs a run for their money. Meet The Fred and The Brian. Both are contemporary and made with a form-fitting design. But different lengths separate them, and make them swim-suitable for very different occasions.
The Brian Swim Trunk is the sexier of the two. In terms of coverage, picture your favorite square-cut underwear, then add a drawstring and a body of water. It’s one of the most narrow swimwear designs you’ll find that isn’t a swim brief, if not the most narrow. Don’t wear this one to family reunions at the lake. Don’t wear this one to water parks with kiddos around. Instead, break it out for a boozy beach party or a late-night dip in the ocean.
The narrow square cut is ultra modern and provides a sexy, masculine silhouette. If you want to keep covered at the beach, look elsewhere for your swimwear. But if you want to turn heads and absorb some sexy tan lines, then your new swimwear look for 2016 is right in front of you. The Brian Swim Trunk’s length runs 8 inches down your hips, covering no more than your underwear would (unless you’re a jock or brief guy).
The Fred Swim Short covers more skin and swims on the classier side – but that doesn’t mean The Fred is without it’s own sex appeal. Where The Brian is designed with a drawstring, The Fred is designed with a nifty front button fly that gives it a distinctly polished look. It’s what you picture a dapper businessman wearing when he’s vacationing on PTO. The mid-thigh length is discrete enough to not look overly revealing. The button fly is slick enough to look a little dressed up – even when you’re wearing nothing but Radical Energy swimwear. The Fred could also double as a standard pair of shorts. Wear them with a button-down or a tee, and you’re good to go.
