Your New Favorite Swim Trunks Are Loud, Bright and Very Australian

They call 'em cozzies down in those parts, FYI

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.
