Summer is upon us! And even though this blog is devoted to men’s underwear I will be doing a few exceptions over the next few days, turning for a moment to the category of men’s swim wear.
The reason is that when receiving my latest ES Collection underwear (read my review of the ES Collection Rocky Boxer Brief), I also got a couple of swim briefs which I’ve gotten quite fond of.
Read my post introducing two of ES Collection’s hottest swim brief styles!
By the way, check out Guy’s Underwear Blog’s official Aussiebum 2010 Men’s Swimwear Guide.
It made me think about men’s swim wear fashion. All I see when I go to the beach these days are board shorts, board shorts, board shorts. All over! It’s like guys aged 18-35 are just plain scared of wearing anything even remotely revealing. At least here in Northern Europe where I currently live.
I am not sure why… Granted, the board short style is more forgiving if you have, shall we say, an “uneven weight distribution” :) But still, in my opinion, men of most shapes and sizes would look great in a pair of regular swim briefs, swim trunks or square cuts. Just look at Ricky Martin, Danial Craig, and David Beckham here…
No need to feel ashamed, guys! If celebs can pull it off, so can you. And did I mention Hollywood loves men in swim briefs.
Don’t get me wrong, board shorts can look cool, but they are also baggy, take forever to dry after a dip in the sea, and too easily get full of sand.
Swim briefs or trunks on the other hand give you freedom of movement both on land and sea, look amazing, and dry fast. Yet, for some reason most of us only wear them when exercising in public swimming pools.
Anyway! That’s just my opinion.
So for this week’s poll I’d like to know; Guys, what type of swimwear do you wear to the beach?
