Given his estimated net worth of $156 billion, you might think that Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos would travel with an entire wardrobe full of swimwear options. But he doesn’t.
In fact, Bezos only seems to own one pair of swim shorts. Or at least that’s the impression he’s giving us during his current jaunt around Europe, wearing the same pair on rotation throughout the trip. Interestingly, what’s more is they’re not from a luxe brand, they’re not bank balance-breakers, and they’re definitely not boring.
Bezos, the richest man on earth, cannot get enough of his octopus-print Vilebrequin swim trucks. They cost under $300, which considering Bezos spending $88,000 is the estimated equivalent of you or I spending $1, means they basically cost $0.30 in Bezos-world. That’s not a “fact” to be ignored, either, considering he wore them on a $400 million yacht in the presence of Joshua Kushner, Karlie Kloss, and ex-Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein.
Bezos most likely copped his Vilebrequin trunks in Saint-Tropez, where he’s currently holidaying, as the French coastal spot is the birthplace of this heritage swimwear brand. While the exact octopus-covered pair he owns are currently out of stock, there are bunch of fire options available to buy online such as this yellow turtle pair or these camo vibes.
