Trunk Call: 25 Of The Best Men’s Swimwear

David Gandy dropped his new swimwear line last month. Duly inspired, we shop around for the best men’s bathers for SS22.

It was 2007 and David Gandy was a jobbing model. And then, just like that, one Dolce and Gabbana shoot featuring the man who would go on to superstardom in tighty whities later, and his place in fashion history was affirmed. Fifteen years later, he’s turned his hand to designing his own range of swimwear – after all, it’s an area he’s better versed in than most. His Poolside collection dropped last month, and you can shop it here, though happily, he’s not the only one creating smart, grown-up trunks for menfolk right now – and to prove it, we’ve rounded up the best of the rest here.
