Most guys won’t admit it, but rocking long board shorts is more of a security blanket. Remember there’s no better way to gain some confidence on the beach than rocking a well-tailored board short that shows off those legs you’ve worked so hard to sculpt. You don’t want to look like the guy that forgot to bring swim trunks and had to borrow a pair of basketball shorts from his buddy. For guys ranging in height from 5’6′ to 6’2, a board short with a 5 inch inseam will hit you just below, or right at, mid-thigh. This might be the first time that your quads see some sun but trust me, people will notice you for all the right reasons.
This post features three pair of 5 inch (inseam) Surfside Board Shorts from Bonobos.
Florals are a huge trend in menswear this spring & summer, and of course they go hand-in-hand with swimwear. Giving off a tropical vibe, floral board shorts show that you have a big personality and enjoy the finer things in life (aka drinks on the beach).
- Floral shorts with a blue base are always a safe way to go, especially when the flowers are pink, green, yellow or white
- The scale of the pattern is crucial. Opt for a floral short with large flowers that are spaced far apart. Remember you’re not a walking bouquet
