We stopped by Australian brand Franks last Summer – last Summer didn’t happen for you?  We sympathise. If you’re still feeling short changed, don’t lose the faith. Get yourselves some trunks and dare that sadist who works the weather levers to do his worse. Franks is a great place to start. Two things work here, firstly, the length. Too short – you’re at the sinister end of the scale, two long/baggy and you’re going to get pulled down into the deep dark sea by your own swimwear, a humiliating death. Secondly, prints. The paisley number above with the day of the dead vibe is a favourite but there are plenty more cheerful patterns to choose from and a selection of block colours if you’re keeping it straightforward. Nice. In need of more Swim Trunk suggestions? Head over here.
