When the weather starts to shift — for better or for worse — we scan the digital shelves of our favorite menswear retailers for signs of the changing times (and the arrival of new gear). That being said, there are brands that act as a mark of quality, like Todd Snyder. In short, any brand that the lauded designer also chooses to sell is more than worth its weight, and more than worth your time.
Take Hartford, and the iconic Hartford Kuta Solid Swim Trunks. These trim-fitting nylon trunks are almost as expertly tailored as your favorite shorts, all the better to wear from the beach to the boardwalk to the bar without missing a beat. The cut and execution is simple, and while the price is certainly on the high end for swim trunks, it’s worth it. Just pair them with an expertly cut Todd Snyder camp shirt for maximum impact and beach-friendly style.
