It’s not unlikely that you’re going to find yourself in or very near a body of water in the next few months.

And should that body of water happen to be on the Iberian peninsula, in the French Riviera, on a lake with an Italian name or at that very European pool party your neighbors throw every Bastille Day… you’ll want the appropriate pair of trunks: ones straight from Europe. There’s just something different about the way they make swimsuits over there—maybe it’s the power-tie-esque patterns, their progressive stance on upper-thigh visibility or those six weeks during summer when the entire continent shuts down while everyone heads to the nearest beach.

So, should you be in the market for a pair of trunks from the land that invented the concept of “summering,” we’ve rounded up your best bets, after the jump.»
