    Default Mens Swimwear - What do you prefer?

    Summers coming up soon. Do the males here rock the banana hammock, square cut briefs, loose trunks, or cover themselves with 5-yards of fabric?

    Ladies, which do you prefer men to wear?


    Personally love the brief style, and find it hilarious so many people are so frightened by the thought of men wearing them.

    I like briefs/short tight trunks in a 60's kind of mood.

    Retro style trunks (slightly longer than normal trunks, slightly higher than board shorts) work for my body and style.

    Penguin makes some great ones that are nice and basic in style, color and print and they last forever! Which surprised me, since most of their clothes are too narrow fitting for me.

    Trunks! Not too baggy, not skin-tight.

    I have been looking for the right boxer-brief style bathing suit for a while now.

    Square cut briefs are a little too short, trunks are slightly too loose.

    I will find them.

    Plain trunks. The more plain, the better. IMO, clothes are a frame for the picture. You want the frame to complement the picture, not clash with it, or draw attention to itself.

    It really depends on the length and musculature of your legs. For example, baggy surf boardshorts will only make short legs look shorter and turn skinny legs into bird legs. And if you're gonna sport an itsy bitsy Speedo, for God's sake, trim those pubes...

    Good link, petruccijc. But washboard abs seem like a prerequisite.

    LOL @ Le Grand Duc. Indeed.

    This question all depends on the man in question. For water polo, only Speedos will do. For a day at the beach, surfer trunks. On a swimsuit pin-up boy in a souvenir calendar, a G-string...

    I am thinking a particularly lovely French dandy...shopping in London's fashionable Burlington Arcade...had he lived today...would have looked ravissant in these...only the best would do.

    Seriously? An old-fashioned bathing suit. With a boater, a pipe and a mustache, preferably.

    If I can't have that, trunks, or, on the right man, nothing at all.

    Default Re: Mens Swimwear - What do you prefer?

    No swimmer, since though I can swim, I generally have a certain reticence about swimming both in pools and in open waters

    But on the rare occasion when I go for a swim or simply to lounge around the beach/on the poolside, I wear bathing shorts

    Used to wear briefs all my youth. Now I sport some kind of fairly short black shorts, trunks I assume.

    Default Re: Mens Swimwear - What do you prefer?

    I've always been a swimmer so it's very natural for me to use briefs, speedo-like, square cut preferably.
    Never a g-string of course.
    I find trunks to be dull and contradictory with swimming and you will get a strange/uneven tan as well. It takes all the fun of swimming for me.
    I never go to public beaches anymore, i try to avoid the sun and crowds of people too. So for me i prefer swimming just before sundown, early morning or even at night.

    cheers

    Speedos of course, despite the age. I'm European after all. I don't think I ever saw trunks on the beach in Tuscany in the 70s-80s.

    I lived in Hawaii for 4 years, so boardshorts were a must in my wardrobe.

    I have some Aussiebum 70's, you have to be pretty secure in your sexuality and be a gym rat to feel comfortable in them though.

    trunks, but nothing too wide or too long. i love the vintage belted ones, very elegant. briefs are alright too, they can be very masculine. they need to be simple, well fitted and nicely cut.
