Men's Guide to Swimwear
There are few names as well known in the Swimwear world as Speedo. Since Alexander MacRae started the company in 1914, coined as Speedo by 1928, the brand has become synonymous with style, performance and quality.
The Speedo – Timeless Swim Style
The Speedo, love it or hate it, is an iconic piece of menswear history.
Simple in design, the brief offers both freedom of movement and an enhanced, comfortable fit. It has an internal drawstring for added security. 100% chlorine resistant, Endurance+ Fabric makes this style ideal for regular sessions in the pool. It has an extra front lining to keep things modest and with a side width of 5cm, 8cm, 10cm, 12cm or a 16cm trunk, the choice is yours.
The Aquashort – An Athletic Cut
Secure fit, athletic cut and durable. With a 26cm side this is the perfect option for someone who wants more than a brief but less than a jammer. Made from 100% chlorine resistant Endurance+ fabric, front lined and an internal draw cord – the aquashort, with that bit extra coverage is your alternative “swim-go-to” for a quick-dry, comfortable swim-kit essential.
The Jammer – A Swim-Favourite
Also in 100% chlorine resistant Endurance+ Fabric, this swimsuit has a 44cm side to the knee. The Jammer is a swim favourite for good coverage, reduced drag and a comfortable, secure fit. Front lined and a contrast internal waistband, jammers are a popular choice for the everyday swimmer at the beach or pool.
For a shorter cut that sits mid-thigh, keep an eye out for a Waterboy – a jammer that is a 40cm side length.
Watershorts and Boardies – A beach and lifestyle classic.
Aussie summer favourites are the Speedo shorts. Made in light weight, super quick-dry fabric. The inner mesh lining is durable and comfortable but lets the water through when swimming and reduces drag. The pockets are also designed to stay streamlined in the water but hold essential items out. Speedo’s range of watershorts and boardies are a classic cut for everything from swimming, to running on the beach, training and general every-day wear. Ranging from 41cm for the Classic to 48cm in length for the Baxter and featuring an elasticated waist for comfort, and draw-chord for an extra secure fit, there is something for everyone.
