Don’t be the guy in the so-so swimwear
You only get one chance to make a statement with your swimwear. So finding the ideal style to show off in the surf – or the sand, or the pool – is key.
The aim is to look less like your dad did when he took swimming lessons as a boy, and more like Daniel Craig emerging from the ocean in James Bond, with the kind of confidence that comes from wearing trunks that boast the perfect fit plus an eye-catching design.
Alas, a lot of men get their swimwear wrong. We sympathise, we really do – it’s hard to find a style that isn’t too tight, too loose, too short or too long.
That’s why we’ve found you 3 brands that get it right every single time. Keep reading to avoid committing any swimwear sins this summer.

‘The Rocks Push’ was once the name of an impeccably stylish gang who reigned over Sydney in the late 1880s. Now it’s the name of a brand known for their seriously stylish shorts. Driven by a desire to reduce excess and waste, The Rocks Push are all about keeping their designs surf-friendly and sustainable. Case in point: their current collection had been crafted from recycled drift nets salvaged from our ocean, woven into soft, strong, quick-drying fabric. Add exclusive designs and expert tailoring and you’ve got yourself a pair of shorts you’ll want to wear all summer long.
