    You'll recognize the setup: a pristine surf, soft sand, and glistening neighbors soaking in summer. For many of us, this kind of beach scenery is our happy place, and for those who want a pair of shorts that really salute your allegiances, these are going to be it.

    Men's swim trunks brand Orlebar Brown took some of photographer Gray Malin's stunning aerial beach scenes and digitally printed them onto the shorts. Inspired by "a visual celebration of colour, light, shape — and summer bliss," these shorts depict three different bird's-eye-view beach scenes from Kauai, Rio, and the Carribean. Says Malin, "On a recent trip to Las Vegas, I spent time surveying the view of a rooftop hotel, taking in the scene below of hotel guests enjoying the pool. The spectacle and perspective perfectly captured the essence that only exists in the world of pools and beaches — the colour and vibrancy, the elements of play and relaxation, and the beauty of water." Soothing, no? Scoop up these shorts at OrlebarBrown.com.
