As menswear and gear trends have shifted in the past decade or so, a lot’s changed in terms of silhouettes and styles — that even goes for your typical summer swimsuit. What was once an afterthought is now another chance to show off extra details, solid style and functionality. United By Blue takes a sustainable, durable approach to spring and summer gear, and its new boardshorts represent the best of slightly vintage style in a uniquely modern color.
Made from organic cotton and blended with polyester made from recycled plastic water bottles, the Clear Creek Boardshort combines cool colorblocking with lightweight and quick-drying fabric. The 8-inch inseam provides a slightly more tailored look than other board shorts, but you still get classic looks — and the brand’s sustainable approach (for every product sold, they remove one pound of trash from oceans and waterways). So when you hit the water, you can feel good about doing it. Buy your pair now at Huckberry or United By Blue. – $68
