The Best Swim Trunks of Spring 2011
Throw out our old saggy board shorts that hang past your knees and add an extra 5-10 lbs of bulk to your frame. I know I can afford to look heavier than I am.
The new school version of the swim trunk channels the old school classics. Slimmer, trimmer, shorter and sportier versions of the classics worn by Steve McQueen, Burt Reynolds and Dustin Hoffman.
The swim trunks below all hit above the knee, elongating the legs and making you appear taller. They also are slimmer and trimmer taking weight off your frame while accenting the best features. The chambray board shorts from Apolis are old school style swim trunks which have an 8" inseam and fabric that gets better with age. Like a new pair if jeans, the chambray is strong, but wears with each swim, fading and changing as the season goes on.
The sporty swim suit from Bolt gives a vibe similar to the 70's swim trunks from endless summer.
