Tom & Teddy Christmas Gift Edit

Eye-catching and super comfortable swim shorts for men and boys. Perfect gifts, we say.

When husband and wife duo, Michelle and Jelle, set foot on Australia’s gloriously white and sandy beaches, they were immediately struck by the somewhat underwhelming swimwear adorning the menfolk of Sydney.

Then and there they set about changing this and came up with Tom & Teddy (long-loved family names), a brand that would dedicate itself to producing durable, eye-catching and super comfortable swim shorts for men and boys.

The brand has two types of shorts. The first are the Classic Shorts for men and boys, consisting of a secure elasticated waist and braided drawcord. The second are the Tailored Swim Trunks for men, which are smart and stylish shorts that combine a smooth waistband with a secure snap fastening. They are made of a super-soft, quick-drying and durable fabric that feels great against the skin. Both are perfect for long, fun and relaxed days on the beach and come in an array of Tom & Teddy’s signature eye-catching designs. The brand also includes a stylish range of t-shirts, polo shirts and rash vests (made using UPF50+ sun protected fabric).

Here are nine of our favourites that any man or boy would be overjoyed to receive this Christmas.

Boys, Island Green T Shirt - £29.95

Pair this lovely mint green t-shirt with these matching palm tree shorts and you’re good to go.

Boys, Solid Deep Blue Long Sleeve Top - £44.95

We are huge fans of these smart, flattering and, most importantly, sun protective tops (that naturally come in a matching men’s version).

Boys, Rose & Blue Starfish Shorts - £34.95

These are from the Classic range and any boy (and his pa) would look super smart and stylish on the beach.

Dark Blue & Yellow Flamingos - £69.95

Why blend into the background when you can stand out from the crowds in these amazing flamingo-adorned shorts.

Blue & Orange Octopus – £69.95

We love these stand out, striking navy and bright orange octopus shorts – for him or his mini-me.

Solid Marine Blue Short Sleeved T Shirt - £49.95

Tom & Teddy’s bestselling rash guard in a new mid-blue colour, made with UPF50+ sun protection. We approve particularly how it is resistant to chlorine and saltwater too.

Mid Blue & Pink Lobster Shorts - £69.95

We love a lobster print (who doesn’t?) and these blue and pastel pink ones tick the box perfectly.

Green Gingham Tailored Shorts - £74.95

From the brand’s tailored range, we were instantly drawn to these gingham-print shorts for their versatility; ideal for lounging about poolside or dining at a smart beach club.
