label rag: Orlebar Brown ‘Setter’ swim trunks S/S 09


Summer is just around the corner and even more so, we’re ushering in swim wear. No longer are we a slave to the long and shapeless trunks or boardshorts, we have now embraced the ‘short-short‘ we all once feared. OK, So I don’t speak for everybody on the ‘short-short’ idea, But, maybe a good 99%( I hope) of you readers out there agree and embrace.


Anyways, lately I’ve been trying to find the perfect swim trunk, scouring thrift shops for that nice vintage pair but now I think my search has ended. I recently stumbled across Orlebar Brown’s S/S 09 “setter” swim trunks. Known to the brand as the ‘shorter’ short, the classic styling is reminiscent of beachwear of the 50’s and 60’s that’s updated for today’s fashion consciouses male appeal. OB is far from stingy, the label gives us many choices of colors and also different lengths for those fellows that just want to avoid anything above the knee this summer.
