We’ve extolled the virtues of the seersucker swimsuit… but when it comes to swimwear, once you cross the Atlantic, all bets are off. So if you’ve ever romanced the thought of spending a rum-soaked week on some far-flung beach amidst the impossibly bronzed, skip the seersucker and head straight for these new swim trunks from Seize sur Vingt. The cut was inspired by Mediterranean beachgoers in the 1950s, the fabric is from Como, Italy (naturally), they’re constructed in a French swimsuit factory, and the designs are limited-edition art by Paul Weil (only 60 yards of each fabric were produced). Which means you’ll be in good company, no matter which body of water you end up near.
