Here at OutSpokenNYC, we occasionally like to solve life’s major problems (i.e. how to not end up like Anthony Weiner, where to buy cookies, how to make your own tank tops, etc.). In this charitable vein, Tyler and Jon have assembled the handy guide to picking a new swim suit, a potentially life-threatening problem you’re likely currently facing (or will soon face, depending on your vacationing schedule).
In case you haven’t noticed, it is summer again. As you make plans for weekends on Fire Island and weeks in the Hamptons, don’t forget to refresh your wardrobe of bathing suits!
Some inspiration for you:
For you demure boys who aren’t into showing off man-thigh, go with a longer style that hits just above the knees (please don’t get anything longer than that – you might as well be wearing pants).
Shorter Swim Suits
Looking for something simple? Try these retro-inspired shorts from Marc by Marc Jacobs with zip accents. Pair with Tom Ford sunglasses and rum punch.
This pick from Jon is perfect for you boys with colorful personality and colorful taste. Not quite a floral print, not quite tie dye and enough color to cause a seizure. We love it.
Need an outfit for your upcoming 4th of July poolside party? Try the red, white and blue seersucker-inspired printed shorts by Thom Browne.
While I personally don’t subscribe to the speedo credo, most of Fire Island would likely disagree with me. If you’re looking to show off your junk, do so with pizazz and color!
Swim briefs too much for you? Try trunks!
For slightly more coverage, go for colorful Paul Smith short shorts.
Bam. All of your life problems = solved. Happy bathing suit shopping, boys!
