If there is one thing every man should invest in it is a great pair of swimming trunks. A good pair of swimming trunks can bring out the best in a man by simultaneously making him look physically appealing to all women in his vicinity and allowing him to look stylish while freely frolicking in the cool waters of the ocean or swimming pool. But where does a man find such a pair of magical swimming trunks – must he trawl the malls, trying on hundreds of pairs of trunks only to leave disappointed because everything he finds either makes him look like a sad Hawaiian paedophile or a man-child who spends his days collecting Star Wars figurines? No, he merely has to visit www.gardwoodandgrace.com, click on the pair he loves, and then wait for it to arrive at his door. But seriously, check out these awesome swimming trunks, they are the business!
Local men’s swimwear brand Garwood & Grace was founded in 2013 and offers a range of tailored swim shorts for men. That’s right, this one is just for the guys. The thing we love most about this awesome brand is that their designs are bold and fun with a generous splash of attitude. It’s all about looking crazy good whether you’re at the beach, the pool or the bar. If you only buy one thing this summer then make it a pair of Garwood & Grace shorts.
The brand was started by Tiphaine Alston and Calum Harvey (both graduates of the Royal College of Art in London). Between them, Tiphaine and Calum have worked for a number of London fashion designers, including Burberry, Alexander McQueen and Roksanda Ilincic so it’s clear that they know their stuff. The brand also places a huge focus on tailoring which means your shorts will always fit perfectly.
We also love that the range features something for every type of man. There’s The Clifton, a shorter length swim short for the man who likes to show a little more leg and The Camps Bay, a mid-length swim short for the man who wants to protect his modesty and they both come in a variety of styles and colours. Some of our favourites include the Clifton Camo Stripe (a camo-style print in grey, blue and plum – R1550), Camps Bay Rock Art Blue (a limited edition royal blue short with a rock art print – R1600), and Camps Bay Sky Blue (a bold block coloured short in light blue – R1200).
The Gardwood and Grace swim shorts can be purchased directly from their website and couriered straight to your door. For more information on the brand and to check out the collection visit their website now.
