Covetable – Orlebar Brown Bulldog Swim Short

OrlebarAs holidays approach, it’s always useful to look out for a few staples we’ll want to sport for years to come.

Orlebar Brown describe their swimming shorts as ‘shorts you can swim in’, and they are the perfect option to transition channeling your inner David Wilkie and lounging at the bar, a spot of brunch or a wander through the Old Town.

Flattering shape wise, they’re made at a length that sits admirably between budgie-smuggler wrongness and aging surfer board shorts, which are gnarly, and not in a good way. They are apparently based on the 17 piece pattern of a suit trouser, but suffice to say that attention to detail has been transplanted to making you look that little but more stylish in, or near the water this Summer season. 

Check Orlebar Brown’s expanding range of options as the brand goes from strength to strength; as ever the passion and precision StyleDen loves is to the fore, and the range of patters and colours is nigh-on dizzying.
