Personally, I don't think you can beat the iconic photographic swim shorts from OB. They ooze style and sophistication and are even appropriate to wear at lunch or at the pool side bar. So, get raring to dive in with our swim shorts depicting race cars at the start of the Grand Prix de Monaco in Monte Carlo, Monaco, 1956 (photo by Thomas McAvoy/The LIFE Picture collection). The tailored swim short is where it all began for Orlebar Brown. Based on the pattern of a traditional man’s tailored trouser and crafted from quick-drying nylon fabric with signature side-fasteners to adjust, our OB Classic swim shorts offer the perfect blend of form and function. Not just a swim short—it’s a short you can swim in.
