We understand that our customers aren’t your average, run-of-the-mill beach lovers. As Sanwin Beachwear fans, you’re the kind of guys who love the finer things in life. You’re the ones who insist on only the best; the most exotic destinations, the most flawless beaches, the most exciting and horizon-broadening adventures.

After all, why else would you choose Sanwin swim shorts as your chosen items of clothing for your vacations? Our products successfully combine fantastic craftsmanship with outlandish yet elegant designs, the most eye-popping colours and a quality which stands head and shoulders above the competition. All in all, they’re the perfect fit for men like you.

With this in mind, we’ve decided to put together a brief - yet informative - guide as to how to make the very most of your swimwear. We care deeply about our customers feeling as great as they look, and having the holidays they deserve… and by following these tips, you’ll not only be able to select the best swim shorts for your needs, but will also be able to have the trip of a lifetime. See you at the beach!

Choose the right colour

There’s no doubt about it: here at Sanwin Beachwear, we love experimenting and innovating with colour. Our range of quality swim shorts come in an eye-catching range of tones and hues, each designed to help you stand out with confidence when strolling across the sands or chilling by the beach.

But which colour is best for you? It all depends on the kind of mood you’re trying to strike, and the kind of look you want to put across to your (doubtlessly envious) audience of onlookers. Want to accentuate your sophisticated side? If so, we’d recommend opting for one of our deeper, darker toned swim shorts, such as our Crab or Seagull designs. Looking to party? We’ve got our funky Gorilla, or Cocktail design shorts, in either pale pink or lemon yellow. It doesn’t end there, either… Fern Green, Deep Pink, Apple Red, Princeton Orange and more colours besides are waiting for you, perfect for expressing your bold and outlandish personality, or bringing out your newly bronzed tan when on the beach!

Choose the right fit

There’s no way you’re going to feeling your best in your swim shorts if you aren’t wearing the right fit. No matter how great the design, and no matter how well made the shorts might be… if you’re hiking them up every two minutes to avoid exposing yourself by the poolside, you aren’t exactly going to be exuding the sense of confidence Sanwin customers expect.

We sell our fantastic swim shorts in sizes ranging from S - XXL, and it’s important to consider which size is likely to fit you best. While our shorts have a certain amount of flexibility and elasticity to them, you don’t want to find yourself uncomfortably squeezing into a pair of swim shorts which are too small, and likewise, you don’t want them to be flapping around your legs like a tent, either. Your shorts should be a comfortable, breathable fit, with no discomfort whatsoever. With the correct size, you’ll be able to strut your stuff as the waves crash behind you from the dawn until the dusk… and then beyond!

Choose the right pattern

Sanwin swim shorts are known and admired for their use of creative and unusual designs, bringing together artfulness with playfulness in a truly unique and eye-catching fashion. We’ve worked with top designers to bring you a range of fun and funky designs, ranging from the understated to the outlandish… but never losing that impeccable sense of cool sophistication.

When thinking about which swim shorts you want for your holiday, take a moment to consider which aspect of your personality you most want to express when on the beach. If you’re the kind of guy who loves late nights at a cocktail bar, sipping Margaritas while the sun sets behind you, then our Cocktail shorts are doubtlessly the one for you. Have you got a cheeky, outgoing side, and want to express your sense of humour? If so, go for our Gorilla or Ice designs. Our Seagull and Crab shorts are ideal for the genuine beach lover with a true passion for adventure, and our Molokai Beach and Marina shorts are brilliant for those with a creative spirit who want to catch some envious glances while hanging by the pool.

Of course, if patterns aren’t your thing - no worries! Our plain coloured shorts are just as elegant, and feature bold and beautiful colours which just as effectively express your personality and taste for life’s finer things.

Choose the right accessories

If you truly want to stand out from the crowd while on your coastal adventure, you’ve got to take care of the little things, too. Sure, your colourful and stylish Sanwin swim shorts are going to lay most of the ground work when it comes to looking fantastic, but in order to finish the look, a few added flourishes can really go a long way.

A simple item of jewellery, such as our rugged and cool bracelets, are the perfect accessory for helping you look awesome - whether on the beach, by the pool, or simply out and about on the town. Bringing a touch of nautical, castaway charm to your outfit is going to help you look like a real man of action, and is the perfect way to complete your holiday outfit.

Choose the right locations

What good is looking amazing in your stylish designer swimwear, if you’re wearing them somewhere completely unsuitable? There’s no doubt about it: if you’re the kind of man who appreciates great style, then knowing where to spend your time is of paramount importance.

In order to look your best in your swim shorts, you’ll want to be spending time in places where such quality can be appreciated. We’re not talking about the crowded, budget package holiday resorts where you can barely stretch your legs on the beach without kicking some sunburnt tourists… we mean the kind of resorts where elegance and sophistication come as standard. Such places are designed for true relaxation and luxuriance, and that’s exactly the kind of thing you want when strutting around or chilling out in your high-end swim shorts.

When the evenings roll around, wear your swim shorts at a cool beach bar or club. This way, you’ll be able to stand out from the crowd in the best way possible, while sipping a cool beer or cocktail or tucking into some freshly prepared seafood - heaven!

Choose the right attitude

They say that elegance is an attitude, and charm is something that can never be taught. However, a great pair of swim trunks are the kind of item of clothing that can give you such a boost to your confidence and overall approach to life, that even if you aren’t normally the most outgoing of people, they’re going to make you exude a sense of self-confidence which few could fail to notice.

Nonchalance, self-assuredness and a relaxed (yet purposeful) walk are the kinds of high notes you’ll be striking when wearing your Sanwin swim shorts. You’ll be commanding the admiration of your fellow beach-goers wherever you go, and with your head held high and your shoulders thrown back, you’re sure to attract plenty of appreciative glances. Such is the power of true style!

Choose the right company

When you’re on your travels, you’re likely to either be on the move with your friends or partner, or else you’re likely to meet people along the way. The company you keep says a lot about you as a man, and as such, it’s important that the people you surround yourself with aren’t going to let you down. You’ll want to be spending your time with like-minded individuals; those who share your appreciation for life’s finer things, and who have the kind of elegance and sophistication that resonates with your own. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with having a laugh with your mates, and ensuring that everyone’s having a good time - style and fun are by no means mutually exclusive. Just make sure that everyone is on the same page, and don’t let anyone get in the way of your personal adventure or holiday of a lifetime.

Remember: wherever you go, we go. Sanwin Beachwear is ready to help you turn every holiday into a voyage of discovery, and an unforgettably stylish journey. Now, get out there and catch the sun!
