Style: "Do it all" Shorts

Good For: Up-for-anything guys

Designed for multiple activities, the newly created "do it all" trunks double as regular shorts, with muted colors, zipper flies, and waistband cinch tabs instead of the traditional drawstring. "You can go to the beach and then pair them with a button-down shirt for lunch," says Adam Brown of Orlebar Brown swimwear. "They'll even work for a game of tennis." These micro-striped trunks were designed for Club Monaco by the historic surfwear brand Katin. They're on the longer side but won't billow out when you hop on a beach cruiser or toss around a football. [$89.59, clubmonaco.com]
