Polo perfection: Paired with swim trunks and slip-ons

We know our Pocket Polos and Long Sleeve Polos look great with chinos and jeans. But there may be no outfit that says summer like polos paired with great swim trunks and a stylish pair of slip-on sneakers. Why? Because it represents total relaxation mode!

It’s only April but we are beginning to turn our thoughts to those lazy summer days hanging out in swim trunks.

So, to go along with our Pocket and Long Sleeve Polos (and Classic Polos and Pocket Tees coming soon) we wanted to suggest some great swim shorts and slip-ons to get you in the mood for warmer days.

Frescobal Carioca is a new line of swimwear that has caught our eye. Great patterns, colors, cuts and styles all ready for the beach or lunch on the patio. Here are a couple of our faves.

Frescobal Carioca Paratay Swim Sport Shorts, $152, available at FrescobalCarioca.com

Try this with our Long Sleeve Polo. You’ll look as fresh and cool as can be.

We love this orange with our Powder or Concord Pocket Polo for the perfect summer color combo.

This subtle retro pattern would look fantastic with our Black or Navy Long Sleeve Polo.

Frescobal Carioca Florida Tailored Swim Shorts, $213, available at FrescobalCarioca.com

Hartford makes a great swim short in lots of terrific patterns and colors. We like this subtle Liberty print. It’s beautiful without drawing undue attention. This would look smashing with our White or Black Long Sleeve Polo.

Hartford Boxer, $160, available at Hartford.fr 

Vilbrequin has always delighted with their whimsical prints and patterns that change from year to year. This pattern is not subtle, but it is great and paired with a solid polo, it would eye catching, fun and super cool. 

Keep what you wear with this simple but colorful. Our Yellow or Pink Pocket Polo would be the perfect match.

Orlebar Brown is one of the premiere swim suit makers for men. We love this pop of red in a tribal pattern in their mid-length Bulldog cut. Perfect for us 'not-so-tall' guys!

Pair this red suit with our Slate Long Sleeve Polo for the perfect combo.

All of the above suits come in additional colors and styles. Pick the one you like best and mix and match with our Polos. Add a pair of the following slip on sneakers for a perfectly stylish, utterly comfortable, and totally laid back look.  The white and blue will go with everything.
