5 Pairs Of Swim Shorts To Guide You Through Summer 2019

best men's swim shorts styles Summer 2019

The first day of Summer is either June 1st or June 21st depending on which calendar you’re looking at but we’re well within Summer as far as I’m concerned because temperatures have hit 90-degrees for weeks and the ‘feels like’ temps are making me melt in the sun.

The dawning of Summer means its Swimming SZN and whether you get your swim on at the pool, beach, lake, river, pool party in Vegas, a tiki bar in The Keys, or surfing on the Left Coast you’ll need some excellent swim shorts to guide you through Summer 2019. I’ve pulled together five pairs that have caught my attention recently that I think you bros will definitely be into!

First up are the Howler Brothers Sayulita Watershorts. I’ve been loving Howler Brothers for years as a brand and this faux denim look is made from quick-drying fabric with a back elastic waistband that fits perfectly on the hips. Next up are the four-way stretch fabric Banks Journal Bloom Boardshorts which are lightweight and can be worn all year long. This fun leafy pattern is eye-catching and the seams are triple-stitched to ensure they last forever. This is a great choice for boardshorts.

On the top right, we’ve got the Faherty Brand Beacon Trunk. These have a vintage sun-washed finish and a hand-crafted elastic waistband that’s super comfy. The high-thread count mesh lining adds additional comfort and the durable water repellent (DWR) means they dry out super quick. On the bottom left we see the OAS Army and Fly. I personally love this bold Army green pattern with the birds. They are quick drying and moisture-wicking so you can wear them in the water or to work out if you want. They have a lightweight and breathable construction so you won’t sweat up a storm in them on the sand. Last up is the Bather Trunk Co. Acid Tie Dye Swim and they are trippy. These quick-dry trunks are loaded up with pockets and have a top-shelf liner for all-day comfort. Let’s check them all out again:
