On Our Radar: Brights For The Brine


The weather forecast remains uncertain, but hell or high water, I’m making for the beach this weekend—and if all goes according to plan, in a new suit, too. More and more labels are getting the message that guys don’t want knee-length trunks any more; cuts this season are slimmer and shorter. My favorites are turn-the-dial-up-even-further with wild colors and wilder prints (like iconic British artist Alan Aldridge’s lolly-licking series for the luxury line Orlebar Brown). My favorites, above.

Clockwise from top left: Vilbrequin morae sea urchin swim shorts, $230, available at; Alan Aldridge for Orlebar Brown Bulldog classic beach short, $295, available at; Steven Alan North Print swim short, $105, available at; Saturdays Surf Grannis board short, $75, available at; Gant by Michael Bastian side-stripe swim trunks, $125, available at
