Earlier this summer, we laid out the case for never spending more than $50 on a pair of swim trunks.
Today, we eat our words.
Feast your peepers on the latest men's swimwear collection from Skwotch, a company by way of — where else? — Australia that hucks their fruit- and animal-printed suits for $79 AUD a piece, which translates to $58 stateside.
Is that $8 more than we ideally want to spend on a pair of trunks? Yes. Is it worth it, for this one-time exception? Also yes.

The mesh-lined cozzies, as the Aussies call them, are built from soft, durable polyester and feature a timeless mid-length inseam. What sets them apart, though, are the high-contrast, almost garishly lurid prints, which range from flamingoes to kiwis to a very tasteful red-white-and-blue club stripe.
International shipping can take up to 20 days, so get your order in stat if you're looking to sport a pair this summer.
