Though we won’t be heading to the beach this weekend, a number of our friends will be and it seems like almost all of them are searching for a new bathing suit.  When asked for advice in picking the right suit, we normally steer everyone clear of traditional board shorts, but this year that has changed.  Why?  Because our friends over at Brooks Brothers have a collection of Board Shorts ($75) this summer that we absolutely love.

While the vast majority of board shorts on the market these days have an inseam of 10 inches or more, Brooks Brothers has trimmed things down substantially and kept their version at a much more refined looking 7 inch inseam.  Available in solids, rugby stripes, tonal color blocks, long stripes, and gingham (shown), these nylon shorts feature a mesh lining and an outer pocket with sewn in drain holes for quick drying.  Of course, you are going to want to make sure things stay put while you’re out in the surf, so Brooks Brothers has gone with a velcro closure and drawstring combo for extra security.  On the beach, or on the boat, you’ll find us in Brooks Brothers Board Shorts all summer long.
