A New App Turns Your Favorite Photos Into Custom Swim Trunks
Rule the pool with wild, one-of-a-kind trunks.
In our humble opinion London’s Orlebar Brown already makes some of the world’s best swim trunks, with a cut and fit that would suit Sean Connery-as-James-Bond to a tee. Now the brand is branching out into custom swim gear via a new photo app with the possibility for some very racy poolside appearances indeed.
The move makes sense since Orlebar Brown was founded by photographer Adam Brown in 2007. Through the brand’s Design Your Own service, customers can either download the new #SnapShorts app (available via iTunes and Google Play) or visit the brand’s website or one of its stores to set their custom creation in motion.
Priced at an admittedly extravagant $595 per pair, you can choose the length and size of the swim trunks, then upload your own photograph, sketch, or pattern to convert into a one-of-a-kind print. Once final adjustments have been made, your unique trunks will be ready in three weeks.
We can only imagine what kind of weirdness these trunks will spawn, so keep an eye out for ’em on the beach this summer.
