When you frequent warmer corners of the globe, swimwear extends far beyond the traditional parameters of the category. It becomes the easiest, and sometimes the only, option for that villa to beach, beach to bar (and back again) drift. Really, there’s nothing more versatile than a good pair of swim trunks. An outfit all in themselves, swim trunks are designed to serve a purpose which they so often endeavour beyond. 

So, what exactly do swim trunks need to be to fulfill such a crucial role in your wardrobe? From Sport shorts to symbolic Sungas, we review our range of swim styles to establish exactly that.




Our best-selling Sport fit is purpose built for versatility and movement in homage to its namesake category. Cool and casual, the elasticated waist and quick-drying fabric are as primed for an energetic game of Frescobol, as they are for a post-swim beach beer. Available in both print and block colours it’s clear why sport is our most-loved style. 




Looking for something slightly smarter? Our Classic fit trunks have a handsomely tapered fly-zip and button front-closure, but an elasticated back that maintains some Carioca ease. Just as quick-drying as the sportier styles, classic-fit can put you through your paces in the pool and keep you cool over lunch. 



A bold Brazilian hero piece. The sense of freedom the Sunga bestows on the wearer is hard to find in another style. From a spirited swim and a quick game of Frescobol to a late afternoon tan top-up, the Sunga signifies the confidence and carefree attitude of the Carioca. Truly an outfit in its own right. 


These longer-line shorts offer a more relaxed-fit swim option, in a typical Board short shape inspired by surfing. Similarly quick-drying and with an elasticated waist, our Board shorts come in a range of bespoke prints so you can stand out on the waves and in the bar. You’ll want to wear nothing else. 



If you just want a style that simply doesn’t look like a swim short, our Tailored fit is for you. Classically cut men’s shorts with adjustable side straps, a snap-button and zip-fly, our Tailored swim short looks more like a luxurious pair of shorts than trunks. Suitable for the beach, made for the bar.
