If you’re a West Coast surfing junkie or beach bum, the Birdwell name has never really gone away — this is a brand that’s been meticulously crafting swimwear by hand dating back decades. More recently, they’ve teamed up with the likes of lauded American menswear designer Todd Snyder on a capsule of great-looking, functional beach gear, and that style resurgence continues in a big way with the Birdwell 311 Limited-Edition Aloha Board Short.
The silhouette is the same that Birdwell has specialized in for years, done up with Hoffman California Fabrics — Hoffman just so happens to be the first importer of the instantly recongizable Hawaiian prints you know and love.
These boardshorts feature a unique, eyecatching lining and a back pocket flap, both made from a Hoffman print. When you get these trunks wet, the proprietary SurfNyl exterior becomes transparent, showing off even more of the Hoffman fabric underneath — talk about a neat party trick, ehh? These aren’t just board shorts for show, though — they’re also finished off with a ripstop poplin waistband for durability and comfort. Talk about having all your bases covered — these are destined to be the best board shorts you’ll buy all spring and summer. – Shop Now
