Bought these (and about 3 other pairs of board shorts) for my husband's birthday last June and these are still the reigning favorites out of all of his swimwear. I had never bought this brand before so I was pleasantly surprised. We love to travel, and live on the lake, so his trunks get a lot of use and these are nearly always the go to. He went on vacation last week and these were the one and only pair he brought.They fit true to size and the material is sturdy, but light and stretchy. Doesn't reveal too much, but doesn't bog him down - if ya catch my drift.Ties and seams still look great, the color is the same nice red and black as the day they arrived.
