As many men’s swim briefs that get released each summer, you’d still be hard-pressed to find a man who wears them. The swim style is painfully uncommon in the States where people’s taste in clothing – swimwear included – remains, for all intents and purposes, conservative. But the fact of the matter is men’s swim briefs do it better than the boring board shorts you got two years ago at Old Navy. This exclusive Underwear Expert photoshoot shot by Jerrad Matthew is all about hitting the water in something that makes waves, not ripples.
Model Kai Braden first wears SOAR’s Cherry Swim Brief. SOAR is a brand all about separating from the corporate-designed norm. Their Cherry Swim Brief is pretty self-explanatory and deals with a fashionable amount of simplicity. It’s like a play on floral print. You get the same natural aesthetic but with cutesy levity. The red cherries, green stems included, make a playful pop on a white brief silhouette. This pair is definitely a conversation starter. So fun fact: they’re designed by model Colby Melvin.
Kai also models men’s swim briefs designed by JM, 2eros, Clever, and BaNG!. JM and 2eros serve up something sporty. Both have a blue base with a white stripe that wraps around the entire look. But with one navy and the other light blue, you get two distinct amount of flash. And speaking of flash, check out Clever and BaNG!. Their prints are hard to define but if we had to, we’d say “trippy tribal” and “mer-man,” respectively.
