Editor’s Notes: Tom Vitolins, son to Adam in the brand’s familial equation, launched the brand in 2015 because he was dissatisfied with the sustainable swimwear options available to men. “It was impossible to find something sustainable and without someone’s name and surname on the band,” he says.
The brand is based in Paris, but tom àdam’s garments are produced in Latvia near the family’s hometown, allowing for close monitoring of the manufacturing of items that include boxer shorts sewn from fine Italian fabrics and swim shorts made out of recycled plastic found in the ocean.
“Everything [we found before] was produced in Cambodia or Vietnam and had a massive logo on it,” says Vitolins. “I wanted to create something minimalistic, sewn from the best materials out there, so you could pair your favorite T-shirt with a nice pair of swim shorts.”
