The heat is coming and we can start to feel the humidity take a hold on us! It is time to cool down and jump in the ocean or the pool whatever you prefer. Don't forget your favorite board shorts from Brooklyn Cloth!

What are Board Shorts?

Board shorts are a type of men's swimwear that provides a longer more relaxed fit. They often are designed to dry quickly so they can go from swim to casual wear. The average length for board shorts is 22" with a longer knee length short than some other men's swimwear and men's trunk options.

Our Men's Board Shorts

We have 2 different types of swimwear for men:

We want to share with you how we wear our board shorts!

Here is our Hula Girl Floral Board Shorts, there are so many different colors going on here so you can wear a Multi Color Tie Dye Swim Shorts

 Above we have our board shorts paired with a light pink distressed scoop hem tank when you chill this summer you can really make the board shorts stand out wearing a lighter color. Wearing a plain tank is easier to match with because it will pick up the colors in the board shorts.

Looking for board shorts that you can wear to a BBQ backyard party? We have the beer pong volley shorts that would be perfect for chillin with friends on a flamingo pool float while listening to some awesome music. 

 You can these swim shorts with either a red, blue or white tee or even a tank top. You can even wear these for Fourth of July weekend! Get ready to sink all the cups this summer!


Styling Board Shorts and Volley Shorts

For a more soft tone try on a pair of our fish bone volley shorts, now we can easily pair this with white and red because of the fish on the shorts but we like to mix it up!   

Sometimes matching is no fun but these volley shorts look great with our graphic tank "Trust No One" This tank has a really great ombre paint splatter design that pairs well with anything you wear on the bottom because it is neutral. 

To make you feel more at home on the beach kickin back with a drink in your hand get in our Aerial Beach View Print volley shorts, even if you can't make it to the beach you can wear these in the backyard just to chill.  

Whichever you prefer they are both comfortable for diving off the diving board, sitting pool side, relaxing on a tropical beach or skim boarding in the sand! 

If you have a certain way that you like to wear your board shorts we would love to here from you! Leave us a comment and we will respond back as soon as possible.
