The Great Beachwear Debate : Speedos or Shorts ?


Daniel Craig has a lot to answer for. Thanks to the now infamous 30 second scene in Casino Royal where 007 emerges from the sea in the shortest of short blue trunks, with bulging muscles, toned within an inch of his life. He has single-handedly raised the bar of female expectations about the male physique. Ronaldo and Beckham have since jumped on the bandwagon, having both fronted campaigns for Armani’s range of skimpy underwear.

If you’re beach bound this summer here’s a guide to all that’s fashionable this season when it comes to bearing leg or more…

SPEEDOS
Affectionately referred to as ‘budgie smugglers’ and ‘slug huggers’ the speedo is the shortest of briefs. Not for the faint hearted, speedos great advantage is they are quick-drying, smooth to touch and allow for an all over tan. This season Dolce & Gabbana, Diesel and Aussiebum are all favouring the speedo-style brief. This fashion infusion moves away from the plain, block colours associated with traditional Speedos, adding different colour combinations and prints to the mix. To be quite frank, unless you spend hours with regular gym sessions sculpting your body, best to avoid speedos at all costs. If you reckon you’ve got the bod for them, then go for it!

SHORT SHORTS
Squeezing yourself into some hipster-style trunks a la Daniel Craig is unlikely to have quite the same effect as 007. That said sales of short shorts have rocketed this year with some fashion experts suggesting that as men’s swimwear gets shorter, it bodes well for economic growth. Whether this be true or not, to pull off wearing this slightly racier style of shorts, you need to wear them with confidence. The ‘League Brief 10’ range by Aussiebum is a sure winner when it comes to this style. Boxer-style briefs are perhaps the more ego-friendly less fitted variety of short shorts.

BOARD SHORTS
Forget baggy Bermuda shorts, this season board shorts go preppy with somewhat of a 60s feel with key styles including check patterns, pocket detailing and strong bold colours. In contrast to preppy, geometric prints are also very popular and create a very eye-catching look. This style is all about looking relaxed and laid-back at the beach or chilling out in town. Shorter guys should beware of oversized shorts as these will make you look even shorter.

AussieBum-Hunk Brief



The AussieBum HUNK brief is a classic low rise brief. However, the sides of the brief are slightly narrower than most of Aussiebum’s other brief cuts. I wouldn’t go so far as to label it a bikini brief, but with the brief’s equally narrow waistband it certainly is borderline. At its narrowest, the side of the briefs measures 2½ inches, including the waistband.

To me, though, this is major plus. I really like how the brief rests on the hips, framing that whole area below the wast in quite a flattering manner. The contrasted stitching also adds to this effect.

The waistband of the HUNK brief is narrower than most men’s underwear cuts these days. For this style, the 1 inch narrow waistband works brilliantly. The narrow sides of the brief wouldn’t have worked with an overly wide waistband.

The waistband is in the same color as the contrast stitching on the brief (blue, indigo, or red) and has the Aussiebum brand name embroidered in white. The waistband has a product information patch stitched on the inside right side of the brief. The stitching, however, is well done and you won’t notice the patch at all.

The Aussiebum HUNK brief is available only in a white base color with contrast-colored stitching and waistband. The blue, indigo, and red color variations are subtle compared to the bright colors generally dominating the men’s underwear fashion scene at the moment. The HUNK brief, then, is an obvious choice if you’re looking for a classic, no-nonsense white brief style for everyday purposes.

Aussiebum Lockerboy Brief


Aussiebum Lockerboy brief doesn’t have as high cut leg openings as was the case with the HUNK brief. In fact, it’s a modern classic cut brief. I say “modern” because even though it is in fact low rise, this type of cut seems to be well on the way to becoming the new standard brief. At its narrowest, the sides of the Lockerboy brief measure 3 inches including the waistband.

This is the type of brief most men will feel comfortable wearing as their everyday underwear. If you’re considering a switch from boxer briefs to briefs, this brief can ease the transition.

The Aussiebum Lockerboy brief range is available in bright shades of orange, ice, green, yellow, and pink. This makes the range quite a trendy choice right now. I wore the green version which complemented my somewhat pale skin tone  just fine if I should say so myself.

I wore a size M for a 32 inch waist, and the brief fit like a glove. No need to size up or down.
