After the successful launch of PATER et FILIUS boxer shorts, carrying on with swim trunks was a bit of a no-brainer.

However, always committed to class and highly concerned about style, we obviously did not want them to be simple poolboys.
Instead, our swim trunks are inspired by the iconic swim shorts of the 50s and tailored just as carefully as high-end suit trousers. We used the finest ultrafast-drying, stretchable fabrics – and “Yacht shorts” is what we decided to call them.

They are a perfect match with relaxed boat shoes and a linen summer jacket and will lend your look a dash of retro-chic. And because they are still swim trunks – you’re always ready for a refreshing dip.


Swim Trunks.

Perfectly fitted, highly comfortable retro-inspired shorts, crafted from ultrafast-drying fabric. With side slash pockets, adjustable snap-tabs at the waist, snap closure at the waistband and our signature cut in the front for optimum freedom of movement. In fact, the fit is so good that we could get rid of the usual mesh lining.
