Some Swimsuits for the Blustery SoCal Winter
Winter is so brutal. All that bluster, all those layers and the biting chill of
Wait. We’re in Southern California. Restart.
Man, some weather we’ve been having. You could sure use some new swim trunks.
Like these: introducing Solid & Striped
—just some dapper new swim trunks that channel
leisurely-afternoons-on-the-Côte-d’Azur (even if they merely facilitate
leisurely-afternoons-in-friend’s-hot-tub), available now around town.
Stop us if you’ve heard this one before. Guy comes to Hollywood. Dreams of making it big. By which we mean
he dreams of making swimsuits. So he does that. And we like them.

And as for the short, slim cut—they’re meant to look all lackadaisical and European. Like you just
happen to be sitting around in the sun sipping a Negroni on a Wednesday afternoon... without giving the
matter much thought... and maybe you’re going to throw on some boat shoes and grab a bite soon. And yes,
you just happen to look like this.
Your abs are totally not clenched.
