Sukrew makes amazing underwear. The pairs I have tried in the past have, to borrow a British term, brilliant. The pouch and fabric feel awesome to me. So, when the chance to try the new swimwear I jumped at it. I am definitely a swim brief kind of guy but I received the Swim Trunk in Navy! I wasn’t disappointed but couldn’t wait to try out this new suit.
Being in a land locked city the chances of wearing swimwear aren’t too often. I got an offer to spend the day with a friend by the pool. I know this would be the perfect chance to wear the suit. The pool was very swim brief and trunk friendly. Plus my friend I was with would be sporting a swim brief and definite loves swim briefs. So, I knew me wearing it wouldn’t be an issue at all.
Compared to their underwear, the swimwear is a little more conservative. Meaning the swimwear may look a bit plain. There aren’t currently any tartan or prints. This maybe a drawback to some. Unlike underwear swimwear is made to be seen. So you want to make a statement. The bolder the better for some. However, that said this pair has some things I really love.
When I got to the pool I laid out in it for a bit. It was super comfortable and is very well made. If you are familiar with the underwear, it has an amazing pouch. The swimwear is built with the same pouch. It feels awesome for those who love a supportive pouch. Now the pouch can be a bit pouchy, meaning it will show off your goods. At the pool I was at that wasn’t an issue but other places may frown on this.
After a while I got in the pool and it felt amazing. After a bit of pool time I laid out again. I know the rough life I have! In and out of the water this pair just felt amazing. Sukrew really focused on the comfort factor of these. Unlike underwear if you get a bad pair of swimwear you can’t just take it off and freeball.
The Swim Trunk is made out of 80% Polyamide, 20% Elastane. The fabric is a nice choice for a pair of swim. This means it will conform to your body. The fabric was also pretty fast drying. A slow drying pair of swimwear is my biggest gripe. I hate it!
Overall they did a great job on the swim. I’m very glad they branched out into this world. This will be one of my favorite suits of this year. Also, one thing I forgot to mention, the swimwear comes with a matching pouch to put it in! If you pack you can put it in the pouch or if you’re at the beach/pool your money or other items.
