How to Choose the Right Swim Shorts

A lot has happened in the swim shorts category in recent years. Largely, thanks to the British Orlebar Brown who launched their classic Bulldog model, in 2007. Whether you’re a casual Riviera-goer or a swimming champion, you can benefit from a more tailored take on the most essential piece for the beach, the swim shorts. We came up with a few tips to make all your imperfections look perfect.

First of all, the fit should hug the waist but allow you to move. Then, the right length should be mid-length or in between your waist and your knees. In terms of detail design, pockets can be handy for carrying your wallet or cell phone when going for lunch or a drink, but don't forget to put on a linen shirt or even better, toweling cloth polo.

Swim shorts are undoubtedly a garment that allows vivid colors and bold patterns, yet an elegant man chooses smaller prints and not too strong colors. Choose one that reflects your personality, then add a notch. It is summer, after all.
