Men’s swimwear poll: What type of swimwear do you wear to the beach?

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?

    Should be interesting to see what the final results are. I think it’ll depend too which area you’re from. It seems as though Europe, South America and Australia are more open to the speedo or square cuts where as most of the USA wears loose trunks or board shorts (except for some coastal areas).

    I think you’re right in your observations. I’m looking forward to see what the poll will show, hopefully it will get to about a 100 votes in a few weeks.

    Very true, I’m from the US and my area is quite different when it comes to swimwear at beaches…I myself LOVE buying hot trunks for the summer months when we go swimming or to the beach, however, I rarely will ever get the opportunity to wear them because you may just get teased the entire time you are trying to enjoy sunbathing or swimming. I find the same problem when it comes to going to the gym, I love to wear short shorts when I workout, I enjoy showing off my legs and having shorts that really accent my features (i.e. my butt) however, you get so many gawks (stares) in your direction like you are making everyone around you uncomfortable. Seriously, Im just there to workout and feel good about myself…where are the gyms for me? lol

    You make such important point, Jeff. Most of us think we live in a world that’s promoting individuality and fighting oppression and discrimination (on the surface at least). Yet, when it comes to embracing diversity on an everyday, personal level so many of us are incapable of keeping an open mind. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if those guys at the beach and the gym came up to you to complement your “bold” wardrobe choices and the fact that you dare to stand out and celebrate your individuality? Hopefully we’ll get there someday. At least all these new underwear and swim wear brands are doing what they can to open up the men’s eyes to new underwear trends :)

    So true! I am a huge fan of the direction Underwear and swimwear is heading…I just need to stand tall with my reservations about what others feel, think, or may say about my wardrobe selections. B/c one day in the future it’ll be all the buzz!! :-)
