It’s Time to Buy New Swim Shorts

These trunks are really the only shorts you need for summer fun

Best men's swim trunks in 2022

We still have a few weeks to go before the first official day of summer, but most pools just opened over the holiday weekend and that's enough for us to start embracing warm-weather style. Now's the time to get your swim trunks out of cold-weather hibernation and into warm-weather weekend rotation. Swimwear has expanded over the past few years for men, especially guys looking for shorter inseams and the capability of wearing trunks as shorts all day long.

Just like with your regular shorts, the length is key. The sweet spot is 4” to 8” ... you want your trunks to take you from the beach to the bar and, of course, the occasional backyard barbecue. No matter if you choose a nice solid color or a heavy print—if you nail the fit, that's what will have you looking like the most stylish fella in and out of the water. Pair any of the trunks we've selected with a nice camp collar shirt , T-shirts or freak 'em with a well-worn oxford for the casual laid back vibe. Whether you're wearing swim shorts to the beach or the bar, there's no need to tread lightly when you look this cool and feel comfortable.
