Seriously Sartorial Swimwear

It’s safe to say most places you will look this year will have tailor swim shorts. They are super popular and look great, I myself intend on getting some for the summer…when it arrives!

What are they? Well they look like a really nicely fitted, above the knee short, usually with a low-rise waist. You can swim in them and do everything you would in a normal short, they just look millions of times better than having a drawstring. Here are my top 3 tailored swim shorts that you should definitely be packing this summer!

Fabulously British

They come with a shorter leg length than other JW shorts and feature silver trims, a classic zip fly plus internal mesh lining. Browse and buy, here!

The names Bond…

Blue Mint Mens tailored swim shorts | Sam Squire UK Male fashion & lifestyle blogger

Bluemint might not be a name you have heard of before, I only heard of them for the first time today and I am set to work with them this summer for my #FuelMySummer campaign. Their Bond short is a tailored mid-length short perfect for wearing around the pool, heading for lunch or exploring your way around beautiful cities. There’s so many colours and patterns to choose from, starting at £89. Click here to check them out!

The tailored short is sophisticated, think less of Marbs and Benidorm and more of remote island, caribbean vibes…will you be rocking a pair this summer?
