Summer is all about beaches and pool parties, but you're definitely not doing it right if you're heading to the water with either super baggy board shorts or opting to jump in with your old basketball shorts. Investing in a quality-made, simple pair of modern fitting swim trunks is a must. We're not saying go full banana hammock or Daisy Dukes, but a pair that hits right below, right above, or right at the knee is something that'll become as integral to your summer as the perfect margarita.
