This year marks the 10 year anniversary for the British swimwear brand, Orlebar Brown. To celebrate the new summer collection, OB Invited me to try out the new threads in sunny Bermuda. This was my second time visiting the small-yet-beatufiul island.
My first time I was exposed to Orlebar Brown was about 4 years ago in Project Las Vegas where I had the chance to customize a bespoke pair which I own till today! And, I’m not just saying this, but as a skinny guy that likes clothing fitted, I’ve never found a pair of swim trunks that fit me as well as OB.
The new collection features a new style called The “Jack,” a sporty rendition of the classic Bull Dog, see the orange trunks above, which is made out of a sporty and super lightweight nylon.
Orlebar Brown is considered the Ferraris and Bentleys of Swimwear. Their sartorial approach to swimwear set them a part from the rest of the market. They recently launched a collaboration with Beautiful Destinations and DJ Sam Feldt.
