Let Your Beach Towel
Make a Statement

The Best Beach Towels for Men

Don't be the guy showing up with the ratty bath towel. You know, that worn-out one that's not even good enough for the privacy of your bathroom. Don't go out in public, lay it down and use it as a marker, "Yes, that's my stuff. This sorry-excuse-for-a-towel represents who I am." Okay, so maybe that's taking it a bit far—it's just a piece of terry cloth. But when you think about the thought you put into your swim suit, shouldn't your beach towel be just as attractive and functional? Look for a towel that's big enough for you to stretch out comfortably and it should also be as absorbent as it is cushy. To make it easy on you, we've picked 10 towels that are cool enough to pose on in your beach Instagrams.
