3111101201-33804_FrontWe are on a kick this year about swim briefs. But not every guy feels comfy enough to wear them to their pool. The prime example of that is our Jon went on a family cruise and wanted to wear a swim brief. He knew it would never get past the parents or friends going. They would give him a hard time or go “go change now.” If you are in a situation like this sometimes a great trunk is what you are after.

2(X)ist has some some really amazing fabrics in swim. Overtime I get to sit down with Jason Scarlatti from 2(X)ist and go over whats new. He points out a lot of the amazing prints they come up with and most of them are a play on stripes. The new Sunglasses print is just fun. From a distance it looks like a blue or red print. The close you get to it the more you notice it’s made up tiny sunglasses.

This pair could definitely be conversation stater on the beach. The Ibiza short is the shorter trunk that is in fashion now. Out are the longer board shorts. Most brands are doing this length. Made out of a 100% polyester fabric means it’s fast drying and will be comfy all day. It is available in Red and Blue

Over the last few years 2(X)ist has expanded their swimwear line. Each year the bring out amazing new pairs in fun and festive patterns. Prints are always big in swimwear, more so than underwear. It’s interesting that a guy will wear a pair like the Sunglasses trunk but be very classic in his underwear. My other favorites in the line are the Tropical Floral print and the Tye Die Floral. We may just profile them soon!

If you’re looking for cheap swimwear, this pair isn’t for you. This pair retails for $75. However, for the price and being from 2(X)ist it will hold up and last. Where can you find this pair? Unless you live in a big city you won’t find these in too many stores. The only place I have seen 2(X)ist swim was in the Macy’s at Beverly Center in LA . That being said you will more than likely have to order them from the 2(X)ist site.
