    (#5) Brioni Mid-Length Houndstooth Check Swim Shorts, $395. Seriously…$395??? Ridiculous.

    Well I have to say I was very happy to see slide number 7 – wear whatever the hell you want with confidence!! Matching body types to required swimwear styles is demeaning and downright stupid. If you don’t like it, don’t wear it….

    Caftan it is.

    The writer of this article is an idiot. The only people who have the money for $50-plus bathing suits are either inherently selfish or far-removed from today’s working class. In either case, both are off putting.

    Hot, but Lame! I was hoping to see the guy in the lime green thong bikini!

    I love how an advertisement for men’s swim wear is passed off as an actual news article.

    At this point in life, if you don’t know what looks good on you, than you are completely hopeless.

    My $7 regular, plain navy blue Target bathing suit turns heads…

    You can buy decent swimsuits for low prices. The main idea is you are to SWIM in it. I hate these vain men and women who will spend big $$$ in a suit, then get angry if someone splashes them! Better deal, go to a nude beach or your own private area and be naked!


    The Speedo! for sure. Come sit on my face HOMIE: AdamHomo

    Bucket of chicken? Really?

    @Bozen: I am more than capable of dropping that money on a bathing suit if I really wanted to. I have an amazing husband, and I have no actual bills, so every cent I do make goes directly to what I want, and I also have a credit card with a high limit that he pays the bill on. However, I would never be able to bring myself to actually drop that coin on fabric. I can think of such better uses for that money, and I would much rather buy a $20 bathing suit and give $300+ to charity!
