Swimwear for men must offer more than just comfortable materials: swimming trunks, swim briefs and beach shorts must suit our style with inventive designs and fashionable prints. Whether you prefer swim briefs or beach shorts, body hugging swim shorts or casual Bermuda style shorts – swim and beachwear must be right for you and suitable for all activities. Because beachwear is sportswear and we therefore expect a lot from it, whether it’s for playing beach volleyball, relaxing on the beach or swimming.
On Saturday mornings you and your friends usually always play football on the large field in the park, come rain or shine. This week, however, you make an exception: you have arranged to go swimming at the local indoor swimming pool. Today, your sports shorts will stay in the cupboard and you are wondering what you'll need to take. While looking for your swimming trunks, you come across the beach shorts with the striking print, which you had with you on your last beach holiday. You immediately remember the warm sand, the glorious sun and the cool water. But today, you pack your simple black swim shorts, a towel and shower gel into your gym bag. You have arranged to meet at 11 a.m. in front of the indoor swimming pool, but just like always when playing football, your mates arrive gradually, one by one. You and a few friends go in and get changed; surely the others will arrive soon. In the changing room, one of your friends discovers that he forgot his swimming trunks. You have to laugh, after all he is known for his forgetfulness. While your friend enquires at reception if it’s possible to borrow or buy swimming trunks, you go ahead and shower. The cold shower feels great and really wakes you up. Surprisingly, the indoor pool is cooler than you expected, but you’ll warm up while swimming a few lengths.
You take breaks and chat to your friends, a few of whom prefer to stay by the side of the pool rather than swimming lengths. Two of them convince the pool attendant to open the diving platform. It doesn’t take long and a long queue starts to build in front of the diving platform ladder. Two men in loose-fitting Bermuda shorts with bold prints are ahead of you. They are fooling around loudly and cracking jokes. But once it’s their turn to jump and they have to decide whether they want to jump from the 3 meter or the 5 meter platform, they quietly decide on the 3 meter platform. When you finally stand on the five meter platform, your mind travels back to your last holiday, standing on a high cliff, the green ocean below and the incredibly vast horizon in front of you. When you emerge from the cool water, you decide that you are going to spend your next holiday at the seaside again. There's still a long time to go, but one can’t plan a holiday early enough. And besides, anticipation is half the fun.
