Probably the most timeless of patterns, striped swim short and board short for men still have a bright future ahead of them. The French Navy adopted stripes for their traditional (Marinière Breton) top. The famous great couturiers Coco Chanel and Jean Paul Gaultier have also featured it on many occasions, and Jean Paul Gaultier has been using this pattern in each of his collections since the 80s. This shows how it has become synonymous with beachside leisure. As with our checkered gingham range, every year, we offer a selection of men's swimwear with stripes, ranging from the style worn by 007 in the first Bond movie in 1962, Dr No, with their chic and elegant mono-stripe, and very British design. From discreet patterns, to stripes in eye-popping contrasting colors, you're sure to find a style for you.
