Everything You Need to Know About Men’s Tall Swimwear

Everything You Need to Know About Men’s Tall Swimwear

Swim season is approaching, and luckily for you, we just dropped our tall swimwear collection for 2022. All of our styles are designed exclusively for guys between 6’3” and 7’1” because we know how hard it can be to find clothes when you’re tall (let alone find swimwear). You're either stuck with shorts that are way too short or fits that are awkwardly baggy – which is never a good thing when you’re going for a swim or playing a game of beach volleyball. 

We're changing the game when it comes to swimwear for taller guys. Our collection offers a range of styles and fits including tall men’s board shorts, swim trunks and hybrid shorts, all of which are available in both Tall and Extra Tall inseam options. They're all made with the highest quality fabrics and crafted with the finest attention to detail, so they’ll last you for plenty of summers to come.  

To help you start planning out your poolside or beachside fits, we put together everything you need to know about swimwear for tall men. 

The Classic Pair: Swim Trunks 

If you want to stick to something classic, you can’t go wrong with a pair of our Swim Trunks. The style is a classic for a reason and our long swim trunks for tall men have been designed with your height in mind. Since swim trunks are meant to end a couple of inches above the knee, we carefully measured this pair to have a 10” inseam for the Tall size and an 11.5” for the Extra Tall size, so you can wear the style properly without feeling like you’re showing off a little too much skin.  

They have a mid-rise waist with an adjustable drawstring for the perfect fit. The quick-drying fabric, four-way stretch and mesh lining make these the comfiest pair of swim trunks you’ll own. You can look as good as you feel while enjoying the warm weather, whether you’re sipping on a cold one by the swim-up bar or hanging on a beach chair.

One of the biggest trends for men’s swim in 2022 is floral and tropical-inspired prints, and we’ve released our men’s tall swim trunks in a range of fun new prints including Red Floral and Blue Floral. If you’re looking for something simpler, go for a solid color like Navy or Black.

The Laidback Pair: Board Shorts 

Hang ten or hang out in a pair of our Board Shorts. This laidback swimwear style has been around since the 1950s along the North Shore of Oahu. A local tailor began creating swim trunks that were longer and baggier than the traditional style for the big wave surfers, with a heavy canvas material and laced front that didn’t slide off when surfers wiped out. The style quickly became popular throughout Hawaii and North America, and the modern-day board shorts were born. 

Finding tall men’s board shorts can be a tough task, but we created this pair specifically for guys between 6’3” and 7’1”. Since board shorts are meant to end at the knee, length is more important than ever – you want to make sure you’re getting the inseam you need as a tall guy.  

Our pair comes in both a 12” and 13.5” inseam and features a mid-rise drawstring waist with a Velcro fly and a single patch pocket on the leg. They do fit quite snug, so if you plan on wearing these board shorts to practice your surfing skills or trying out some watersports, we suggest sizing up from your normal size.

The Versatile Pair: Hybrid Shorts 

Designed to look like chino shorts but made to feel like board shorts. Our Hybrid Shorts are the ultimate versatile summer style that you can wear everywhere from drinks on the back deck to the beach or the pool. They're made of a lightweight and breathable fabric with four-way stretch for ultimate comfort. Plus, they’re quick drying so you can stay comfortable on even the hottest of days. 

The belt loops and button fly make them classy enough to wear with our Seersucker Short Sleeve Shirt or Tipped Men’s Tall Polo Shirt to enjoy a date night on the patio, while the lightweight fabric makes them casual enough to wear with our Everyday Crewneck Tee to a backyard BBQ with friends or an afternoon spent hanging out by the lake.
