Boardshorts have gained mainstream acceptance in recent years as an emblem of surf culture. Of course, surf was once something only surfers engaged in, but with recent influences of surf on fashion, everyone is wearing boardies to the beach.
We have a big collection of boardies. Stripes are huge this season, and many of our beloved brands, including Zanerobe, Rhythm, and Banks, offer plenty of options in a vertical stripe print and a range of colour ways. Aside from stripes, our beach shorts are rockin’ abstract prints that bring out the artistic side, even if you think you ain’t got one, and as well as that the floral print is still doing its thing, going strong from one summer to the next. Our floral prints seem to take on a darker, more muted palette this year.
Men’s swimwear is not all about surf-inspired boardies of course, and we stock a solid range of shorter styles that cater to the more streetwear-focused man, mainly from Spencer Project and Ksubi. We’re pretty confident we have something for everybody this year that’ll get you through the summer, and through the waves.
Men's boardshorts this season are all about punchy print in a few finishes: stripes, abstract, and floral. General Pants offers a ton of exclusive styles from Arvust, Stussy, Insight and Spencer Project, among more, that take summer seriously.
