Men’s fashion stumps a lot of people. Why? I guess it’s because for years men were given very limited options of what to wear in any given category. While celebs like Billy Porter, Harry Styles and Timothée Chalamet are shaking things up a bit, hopefully, men’s fashion will continue to expand and break new ground in the coming years. And that includes finding the best men’s swimsuitsmany men out there are just as lost when it comes to finding the best places to shop.

Instead of spending hours scouring websites for the best looks and deals for the summer, I’ve made things easy for you by compiling this list of 25 swimsuits for men that they’ll absolutely love. Some of these designs are simple and classic, while others are truly ~out there~. There’s a variety of cuts, fabrics and designs and a variation of features (like fully closed zip pockets), depending on what you’re looking for. Shop these looks for someone you love or for yourself, and have the best summer of your life this season because I’m guessing, you’ve earned it.
