Orlebar Brown & The Short You Can Swim In

Created in partnership with Orlebar Brown

Looking for stylish men’s swimwear? Your first online port of call should be Orlebar Brown, the luxury swimwear site favoured by Daniel Craig, David Gandy, Damien Lewis and Michael Fassbender.

Eleven years ago, Adam Brown set up a tailored swimming shorts business. He wanted to sell ‘the short you could swim in’; far removed from baggy shapeless shorts or budgie smugglers. Orlebar Brown swim shorts are tailored, quick-drying and can even be made bespoke with customers’ own images. Such has been its success; the brand has since developed into a full resort collection with clothing for all seasons. Here, we pick our favourite styles this season.

D-Frame Sunglasses

You know he wants to. After all, why should she have all the fun? These teal, silver and citrine sunglasses are made for the beach and beyond.

Bulldog – Monte Carlo Mid-Length Swim Shorts

While these shorts scream fun, the tailoring behind the shape is serious business. The fabric dries quickly and has signature side-fasteners to adjust.

Murdoch – Heron/ Navy Lightweight Hooded Jacket

Setting sail anytime soon? This lightweight and showerproof marine blue jacket not only looks good but has a streamlined, packaway hood.

Sutton – Powder Blue/ White Espadrille

Very Riviera. Very Talented Mr Ripley. Nothing says beach chic better than a brand new pair of espadrilles.

Bulldog - Daniel Ricciardo Pin-Up Mid-Length Swim Shorts

Make a splash in a pair of Bulldog Pin-Up Mid-Length Swim Shorts created in collaboration with Australian racing driver Daniel Ricciardo.

Morton Cotton – White Tailored-Fit Shirt

A well fitting white shirt is the LBD for him, a staple for every man’s wardrobe. This lightweight, precisely tailored shirt is their bestseller.

Harley Heron Kids Towelling Hoody

Let’s not deny the younger generation. The OB Harley towelling hoody is lined with jersey in the hood for extra comfort.
