Alongside the photogenic swimsuits are these graphic patterned swim shorts that boast vibrant colors. Though the colors and patterns are bold, above all, the designs are playfully sophisticated. As you can see, I gravitated towards the limited edition jungle print shorts by the famous Greek illustrator Konstantin Kakanias. The shorts have bright green tropical foliage with exotic birds resting on leaves and a black panther peering out from the jungle deep. Artistic collaborations and the use of historical photography are the type of specialized fabrications you can expect from Orlebar Brown. When it comes to these specific details, no brand does it better!

Given their extensive selection and luxury price point, investing in a suit will probably reduce the chances of running into a guy at the pool with the exact same trunks on. Whether you’re a swim brief, mid-thigh or to-your-knee kind of guy when it comes to length; or a solid color, photographic image or geometric pattern guy when it comes to style; OB seems to have that luxury “something” for everyone.

Be sure to check back next Monday for my second favorite swimsuit brand! The inseam gets a little shorter while the pattern gets simplified.
