With our deep rooted desire to travel as often as possible it is about time GT recommended our swim shorts of choice.
Having scouring stores in London and online we approve Orlebar Brown for their quality Bulldog range.
What we love about these shorts:
- They feature a timeless shape, cut just above the knee with classic looking side fasteners on the waist.
- The real winner for these swimming trunks is their wide array of prints taken from stylised photographs. The photographic edition features photograph images from various creative archives and the images have been expertly mapped to the trunks in 360° so the rear of the trunks also feature the photograph.
- The shorts are created with a very fast drying polyester fabric that is chlorine, salt water, light and rub tested so they look and wear well in and out of water.
Apparently the Bulldog short was in their very first collection and is now their best selling item. The shorts are based on the traditional 17 piece pattern of a man’s suit trouser and are described by Orlebar Brown as “not just a swim short – but a short you can swim in. A perfect bridge short, tailored for style, comfort and performance. Wear on and off the beach”.
GT put these trunks to the test on our recent visit to Grenada and liked them so much we have since bought another pair.
