We’re big advocates of a neutral wardrobe filled with versatile basics, however there’s one place where you can definitely sport some brighter vibes, the beach. To inject some serious colour and eye-catching prints into men’s swimwear, three Aussie mates got together and created Skwosh. The brand was launched in 2015 by Adam Walsh, Jack Watts, and Jack Turner who were dismayed by the lack of options when it came to comfortable and interesting swimwear for men. So, they made their own. Their boardies are adorned with lively and exciting designs, inspired by bright colours and summer days.
When boardies practically become your second skin in summer, you need them to be extremely comfortable, well-fitted and versatile. Skwosh’s shorts definitely fit this bill. Being made from quick-dry 100% polyester means you won’t be walking around in heavy, soggy shorts for ages after you leave the beach. The boardies also feature an elastic waistband, which, of course, can be forgiving when you haven’t quite perfected your beach body yet. Their mid-length, relaxed cut delivers versatility and allows you to get more than just beach or pool wear from them.
Skwosh’s current collection features a range of super interesting prints that are hand designed by Turner. One of our favourite designs is the Citrus Stripe (pictured); a bright, striped pair of shorts that have a strong, retro look. The Kapten Skwosh boardies are also a top pick of ours. They’re one of the more refined pairs, with a blue anchor motif and contrasting pink drawstring. Some of the more eclectic designs feature repeated patterns of tropical fruit, avocados, birds, and berries in striking colours.
Skwosh delivers a nice antidote to the legions of basic swimwear that’s available for men. Their fun and vibrant designs embody the spirit of summer, and offer the kind of comfort that’s needed for daily wear throughout the warmer months.
