How to Choose the Perfect Men’s Swim Trunks

While you may be up on the latest trends, it’s important to know what your style is and how to choose the best swim trunks for your needs. Our men’s swim trunks are versatile and can complete any outfit, making sure you look dope every time you hit the pool or the beach this summer. It’s time to live your best life, and we are here for it.


5 Factors to Consider When Choosing the Right Men’s Swim Trunks:

  • Lining
  • Velcro vs. string
  • Pockets
  • Length
  • Color & design


Men’s Swim Trunk Lining

Lining in swim trunks for men reminds us of that white netting that was supposed to prevent chafing but was really itchy and uncomfortable - IYKYK. While the added support that lining provides is crucial, finding swim trunks that offer support as well as comfort is what we’re here for. 

Our men’s swim trunks feature a thin mesh lining that gives you the best of both worlds. Dope, right? Choose from our stylish collection of swim trunks, and you won’t even notice the liner. 


One of our favorite men’s swim trunks with mesh lining is:

Lavender Tie Dye Swim Shorts


How to Choose Velcro vs. String

Men’s swim trunks come with a drawstring or Velcro to tighten them, but several suits have both! So how do you choose what is the best fit for you? This choice is all on you. Remember, comfort is key.

Each person has a preference as to what works best for them when it comes to their swim trunks. So, suit up and test your options. When you realize drawstring-only is for you, place your order asap.

Choosing the Best Length for Your Men’s Swim Trunks

For men, in particular, the length of their swim trunks is one of the most important factors in feeling yourself in your newest swim trunk. Of course, there is nothing worse than ordering new swim trunks to realize they are way too short for your personal taste and are putting your goods on display. But choosing length isn’t simp. Our men’s swim trunks come in three different lengths:  

Short swim trunks generally have a 4” – 5” inseam, medium trunks a 6” – 7” inseam, and long an 8” – 9” inseam. The general rule for swim trunks is that they should fit between three inches above the knee to your mid-thigh. 

Worried we won’t have your size? Don’t sweat it. All our men's swim trunks come in every size, so add to cart. By following this length guide, comfort and a flattering fit become a vibe, period. 


How to Choose the Right Color & Design

Choosing your color and design is the last step in choosing the right swim trunks for your summer vacay. Once you know your size and the other features that matter to you, you’ve made it to the fun part. So how do you choose the most flattering color of men's swim shorts to keep your outfit on fleek? 

Start by checking your closet. Then, choose men's swim colors that you feel most comfortable in, and don’t forget to include your sandals, your baseball caps, and any other accessories you like to wear.

If buying an entirely new wardrobe isn’t in the budget, don’t get salty just yet. Instead, check your statement pieces and figure out what would match best with the suits you plan to buy. You can pull off bougie while keeping your bank account in the green.
