  • Up close with my clothes there’s a lot going on with the seaming, pocketing or finishing. It’s a balance between interest given to a garment without making it farcical. I try to make men look masculine and credible… real guys want to dress.”

How should a man’s bathing suit fit in 2011?

It should fit just like this.

It’s a bathing suit not a burka. So when you go shopping for a new one this year make sure you ask for trunks with a 7″ inseam and a leg opening that skims your thigh.

If you are under 5’10” you should look for a 5″ inseam. If your are over 6’4″, then go for a 9″ inseam–which should hit you at mid thigh.
