And with the wide range of cuts and colorways that you'll find in this guide, choosing one that suits you should be easy. We've got you covered (get it?) whether you're looking for a shorter inseam that's trendy right now or an old-school pair of boardshorts that end at or below the knee. And yes, we've also got some of the ever-popular hybrid shorts that can take you from poolside to a casual dinner out.

Before we dive in, just a reminder that these trunks can work for anyone of any gender. Many of the brands offer a wide range of sizing, from extra small to XXXL, but if you're looking for something in smaller sizes, be sure to check out our women's swimsuit guide.

If fleeces are Patagonia's cold-weather staple, then Baggies Shorts are its warm-weather equivalents. Although they're not marketed specifically as swim trunks, they're some of the best we've tested because of their versatility.

Patagonia Baggies are made using 100% recycled nylon, which is lightweight and durable. They're treated with a water-resistant coating to keep you dry when you wear them during activities like hiking, but also include many features designed for fully submerging as swim trunks. You'll find its vertical side pockets help to reduce drag when you're in the water, and the mesh interior helps water drain quickly when you get out.

There are three colors to choose from, but our current favorite is the Dark Forest colorway. The subdued color is a wonderful choice if you prefer not to wear swim trunks with bright colors or bold patterns.

They craft the White Cap Boardshort from ECONYLRegenerated Nylon, a recycled product that can again be recycled when it's time for a new pair, meaning these don't have to end up in a landfill. The brand combines this material with 22% elastane for a lot of stretch for all-day wear. Like traditional boardshorts, these trunks are unlined and feature mesh front pockets and a zippered pocket in the back. The colorway has a vintage floral feel.

The Hurley Volley Board Short is an unlined 17-inch short made from a water-wicking polyester that dries quickly. It has two slash pockets and a back pocket with a hook-and-loop flap closure and drain hole. These trunks are tough enough for whatever watersports you're into, but look great just hanging out by the pool, if that's your thing.

We love clothes that can do double (or triple) duty and O'Neill, the OG surf brand, doesn't let us down with their Stockton Hybrid Short. These ultra-lightweight shorts, made from a quick-drying stretch twill material (55% Nylon, 41% Polyester, and 4% Elastane), have you covered whether you're swimming, hiking, or just hanging out with friends. The Stockton Hybrid Short is also nicely tailored with a 20-inch outseam that hits just at the knee, and a slightly slim cut. It comes in eight colors, but we're partial to the Khaki for its original styling.

Birddogs Swim Shorts settles the great debate on whether or not you should wear underwear with trunks. Featuring comfortable, fast-drying underwear built-in, you can avoid mesh liners.

For some, mesh liners found in swim trunks are completely unbearable. For others, the idea of wearing underwear in the water just doesn't sit well. Birddogs Bathing Suits are the solution if you don't like mesh liners, but don't want to go commando in a pair of unlined board shorts.

Beach Britches is an iconic American surf brand known for its durable and stylish swim trunks. The Poolside is one of the brand's classics from the 1970s that they recently introduced. They're handsome, super durable, and have an unbeatable vintage style.

The Poolside is one of the brand's classics from the 1970s that Birdwell recently brought back. They feature an elastic waistband and are made from the company's proprietary two-ply nylon fabric called SurfNyl that's incredibly durable. The Poolside trunks come in six colorways that all have a single stripe in a contrasting color running down the right side for a vintage look from an American classic.

Quiksilver, which began as a small Australian brand in 1969, has been an icon of surfing style ever since. Its Original Arch Boardshort is a classic with its very recognizable Arch panel, the checkerboard fabric on the shorts' outseam. Besides providing some visual flair, the material follows the body's contours and provides extra stretch where you need it whether you're surfing or just walking on the beach. The company's entire line of boardshorts include fabric made from recycled plastic bottles, along with 8% Elastane and 6% organic cotton. Quiksilver offers several outseam sizes and colorways, but the classic 18-inch version in black with black and white checks on the sides is a favorite. It hits just above the knee (based on size 32) for a bit more coverage. These are light, have a good amount of stretch, wick water, and dry fast. There's a back patch pocket with a bungee cord for keys as well.

Vestige, the street brand known for its grown-up graphic T-shirts inspired by abstract art, has recently collaborated with the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation on a capsule collection based on Josef Albers modernist masterpieces. The Chromatic Stripe Swim Short with its vertical stripes of varying widths in blue, yellow, white, and black is inspired by Albers' color theory. It's a striking design matched by the handsome silhouette of these volley-style trunks with a 5-inch inseam for a contemporary look.

The Seersucker Swim Trunk has a six-inch inseam that hits at the mid-thigh and is slim without being clingy. It has a mesh lining and a drawstring waist. The trunks have two slash pockets at the sides and a back pocket with button closure. It comes in the two classic seersucker colorways: turquoise with white and pink and white. These are handsome enough to wear when you're nowhere close to a beach or pool.

We're all about hybrid shorts. Sure, there's the not having to change your clothes part. But even better, swim trunks typically have livelier designs than shorts not made for wearing in the water (not sure why that is) so when a brand like Tommy Bahama offers you the opportunity to let loose away from the beach or pool, take it.

Bonobos is known for its tailoring and variety of fits, and the brand's swim trunks are no exception. They're made from 85% recycled polyester, so they're eco-friendly. They feature a mesh lining, two slash pockets, and a back patch pocket with a hook-and-loop fastener. Best of all there are three different inseams and more than 60(!) colorways to choose from.

The Swedish company Happy Socks helped popularize funky and fun socks, and now they're doing the same for swimwear. They make the trunks from a fast-drying recycled polyester. They have a mesh lining and two slash pockets. The hem hits about mid-thigh. The company also offers a longer version that ends at the bottom of the thigh. Either way, the brand's swim trunks will add a dash of mirth to your day at the beach or poolside amusements.

The Recycled Stretch swim trunks are made from a 90% recycled polyester with 10% spandex which provides four-way stretch that's comfortable for extended wear. The material has a soft handfeel, is water resistant, and dries quickly. The interior mesh is light and even stretchier than the outer material. I wore these the entire day and forgot there was a lining at all. They have a 5.5-inch inseam and hit about mid-thigh on my six-foot frame.

As a last bonus tip we will include large retail stores like Walmart or Target. These places will not have the same full rage as they do during the summer and the swim trunks might not hang at the prime location. But if the store is big enough chances are that they keep a few swim trunks in store year around. You might have to ask the personel at the store for help since swimwear will not be at the front during winter.

If your looking to get a great deal then the best time to buy swim trunks is at the end of summer. This is when all stores (online and offline) are doing sales on their swimwear to make room for the next season. Then you will almost as much options as in the middle of the summer and you can find some great prices on popular designs.

We all know that swim trunks are most used at summer, there is no debate about it. But something you find yourself in a situation where you need a new pair of swim trunks even during winter. This might put some people on the spot since there is no obvious answer to where one can get a new pair of swim trunks in the middle of winter.

When looking a bit closer at the issue we can see that there are several ways you can get yourself some swim trunks even during winter. Some of these options will naturally work better for some people and some will work better for others.

Known for their great-fitting underwear, Bear Skn got into the swimwear game earlier this year with a selection of big & tall swim trunks and briefs. Go with the Oops All Bearies print (seen above) if you want to stand out, or try the Bear Hunter Camo (below) for a more classically cool look.

Anyone know where my hub can buy a good pair of swimming trunks-'proper' ones if you like;long-legged speedo/cycling types rather than baggy shorts type. Staying at the Gellert-would he be able to get them at the shop there do you think? Otherwise any sports type shops at the bottom end of Vaci/ Market/Kalvin Ter area?

Most women will still remember the scene from Casino Royale where James Bond emerges from the sea in his blue trunks. Daniel Craig's famous blue swimsuit from Casino Royale is a La Perla Grigioperla Lodato from the Spring/Summer 2006 collection.

I just bought a pair of these swimtrunks Fri from LaPerla. on the US site, they have them again by the way for 122.00 USD. They shipped them in 3 days just in time for spring break. I thought these shorts would be kinda tight and uncomfortable but I was wrong, they feel wonderful. I just wish they would bring back the black pair as well on the website. 041b061a72
