Orlebar Brown setter short, $190 at Jeffrey, NYC and Opening Ceremony, LA

Trunk Show

I want to find a pair of short swim trunks like Connery has on in this picture. Who's making Bond-style suits this summer?
- Cameron, Cambridge, MA

For shorter swim trunks, we always think of Birdwell's Beach Britches, the Cali institution that's been cranking out simple nylon shorts since 1961. Of course, there are other options like Rag & Bone's seersucker pair (appropriate for après diving drinks at the cabana) or J.Crew's madras board short style with a slightly longer, seven-inch inseam. But our inner Bond responded most to Orlebar Brown's trim setter model, complete with 60s-era side fasteners. Now suit up and find your Honey Ryder.

  • Daniel Craig's tiny briefs in "Casino Royale" were made by Italian lingerie label, La Perla.

The Expertly Packed Carry-On


What should I pack for my first business trip?

- Matt, OH


With nearly every airline imposing a baggage fee nowadays, if you can get away with flying with just a carry-on, do it.
