Trunk show

Be prepared to get wet, all summer long

Happy Pride! Swim trunks are the unsung heroes of our favourite time of year. They’re colourful and bold, and they’re ideal when you’re caught in the line of fire of a water gun or, heaven forbid, stuck in the rain — eek.
 
Go for swim trunks that are mid-thigh or longer. Wear them with your favourite sunnies, a water-resistant watch and a sexy wet T-shirt (or nothing at all). Skintight Speedos are always a fun sight, but I prefer them for the beach (and they can look awkward with shoes).
 
I asked Evolution Fitness trainer and competitive bodybuilder Jeffry Chan to be our swim-trunk hunk. His body-ody-ody framed these shorts most perfectly and he wore them with such pride. Let’s get soaking wet!
