Men’s Swimwear 101

Gentlemen, take a good look at your swim suit. Has it seen better days? When it starts to look faded, stretched out or generally worn, it’s time for a new one. Thankfully, we carry a large selection at The Met, so you’re sure to find a new suit that will (cough) suit you.

What to keep in mind while you’re shopping? First, think about fit. Looser, baggy swim trunks can help a skinny guy look a little bigger. They also might be more comfortable for swimming, allowing a great freedom of movement in the water. On the other hand, a slim-fit style is great on a guy who wants to show off a fit physique. There are also several different lengths to choose from. If you’re on the shorter side, look for a shorter suit. Taller guys might want a longer suit.

When it comes to prints, there are so many fun patterns out there now. Let your suit express your personality! Heavier guys might want to avoid large prints and stick to either smaller prints or solid colors. And speaking of colors, we can help you pick something that complements your skin tone.

Here at The Met, we carry great suits by Etro, Michael’s and Peter Millar, so stop in and check out the latest styles and prints that will have you looking your best when you hit the beach.
