Kitty Corner – Shopping Guide: Men’s Swimsuits
The new hubby needs a new swimsuit – (handsome as he is, ‘see-thru’ is not a good look on him – word to the wise – avoid white swimwear!) and I discovered in my search (wifely duties and all, ya know) that I really hate a lot of men’s swimwear! The patterns are goofy, the lengths all over the map, and the nice, simple ones? Expensive. So I thought I’d share the fruits of my search with y’all – here are seven suits, $40 or less that won’t make a guy look like he thinks he’s a surfer…unless that’s what he WANTS to look like.
We’re starting very simple with this green number from Target. No silly prints and long enough to meet my guy’s ‘no short shorts’ rule. Comes in a nice variety of fashion-forward colors.
And now we add in some color and visual interest (love aqua and orange together) with this pair from Gap.
#3And here we are – as wild as I like a print to be in a men’s swimsuit – madras in a great color combo from Old Navy!
A super-classic pair at a GREAT price from our friends at JCP.
More madras in what Land’s End Canvas terms ‘vintage’ board shorts – I’m liking these…but they may be a bit short for my guy! (Also, they’re 50% off right now!)
Apparently, I like blue and stripes (shocker, I know) - another option in this IZOD pair from Macy’s.
And finally, a vintage washed colorful pair from Nautica - I think these are my personal fave – but I’m not wearing them, so the final call will be up to Ben!
Well, this has been a great excuse to feature shirtless guys on my page! Which is your fave? Other tips and suggestions for men’s swimwear buying? I’m new to this whole thing!
