Men's Swim Suits

Water Wear For Men

A selection of men's swim suits that measure up no matter whether you're swimming, surfing, snorkeling, paddling or sandcastle building. And they look great lounging on the beach or zinging down the water slides at the hotel pool too.

The current trend is toward a long board-short but anything goes in the swimsuit department and length is strictly a matter of preference. The presence or not of a mesh liner is also a personal preference.
