Sleeker Swim Trunks for Summer

Modern trunks have finally caught up to the rest of your wardrobe. They are now lean, short, and cut to fit – without the excess material that balloons as you enter the water. Here are our top selections for summertime fitted trunks – from knock-around swim shorts to surf-ready boardshorts to the emerging line of "do it all" trunks you can wear to the beach and then straight to happy hour.

"Our shorts are designed so you can throw them on in the morning and be ready for anything," says Alex Faherty, co-founder of Faherty Brand swimwear. "They're built like a regular pair of shorts but constructed from a quick-drying fabric. Just as some guys wear the same pair of jeans all winter, these are shorts you can wear the entire summer."
