For Father’s Day: Swimsuits for Dad — and the Kids!


Here’s a fun idea for a Father’s Day gift that includes something for the kids. Bonobos has teamed up with the children’s clothing start-up Rockets of Awesome to create limited-edition swimsuits for dads and their sons and daughters.

They feature a coral and turquoise fish pattern that’s cool enough for pop but cute enough for the young-uns. The men’s and boy’s version has an exterior draw cord with a mesh lining and on-seam pocket. Dad’s also includes a back pocket with a Velcro closure so he can carry all the stuff the children are bound to find while beach combing. The girl’s version is a lined two-piece tankini made from a nylon-spandex blend.

The men’s suit is $88 and is available in sizes XS–XXL, and in five-, seven-, and nine-inch leg lengths. The boys and girls versions are $28 and come in sizes 2–14. The swimsuits are available in Bonobos Guideshops in more than 30 locations across the U.S. or at

Pair your dad’s new trunks with a top so he doesn’t get a nasty sunburn this summer. We recommend the Riviera short sleeve shirt ($88) in a white cotton seersucker that’s perfect for beating the heat while at the beach or pool and nicely sets off the colorful patterning on the swim suit.

There’s also the bonus that you’ll be able to easily locate the whole fam at the beach or pool in their matching suits.
