We're not about to hit the Soho House for some pool time or catch the LIRR to Jones Beach to get salty and sandy, but we're forever optimists—swim suit season is so close we can feel it. Okay, so maybe we have to slow our roll for the next, say, 47 days, but we're doing the next best thing until we can ride the waves. Yes, that means shopping (if you shop it, it will come—that's an expression, right?). We've already given the ladies the low-down on the best bathing gear, so we're letting the gents in on the chance to get their swim on with a roundup of 11 bathing suits for every type of dude. Whether you're planning to take a dip in Nantucket, ride the waves in Montauk, or just tool around in the kiddie pool on your neighbor's roof, we've got your trunks covered. And sorry Michael Phelps wannabes, no speedos included.
Take the plunge and click through to peep some of our fave men's bathing suits!
