The Brokini

Post by Uncle Al »

A new idea for men's swimsuits, from Canadian designers.

I'm not sure this item will survive anywhere :|

Especially not in those patterns...

Probably another flash in the pan, but hey, someone's trying to do something new...

well its a laugh for a start

I wear bikinis - top and bottom - cause I need to - so I understand them well.

In this design they should have made the bottom more minimal coverage - its seems a bit clunky on the rear for something so out there on the front...take a lesson from the womens bikini backsides.

just my 50 cents worth,

Be good for the lads to get to feel what a bikini is like to wear ! Its not going to last as a trend ....

Should be marketed as unisex, with both male and female models.

This looks like a couple of stoner dudes who are just trying to capitalise on their dude credentials :-)

Shirley Borat will be after them for cloning and modifying his mankini?

I would never wear any of them, they are ugly even with different patterns :-X

Probably handy for hauling a drowning man onto a boat.

Probably not even good for that, it would probably snap.

In a word, no. In several words, hell no please make it stop. Oh, the pain. My eyes!

I do have a fondness for a smooth, solid-colored tank style one-piece (aka maillot), but unless I'm looking to get into an argument and/or a fight I usually just wear cheap generic men's trunks out in public.

Either way, it has to be something with a wide swath of fabric between the legs. I absolutely cannot abide by thongs.

I have a number of one-pieces but my favourite is this one:
the Speedo Fireflash
I must admit I only wear it in open waters when it's not busy, I'm not quite comfortable with wearing this in a crowded pool. I did wear it to a mermaid experience, where I got the comment that the colours matched nicely with the mermaid tail I had chosen :)

At some point I'd like to find a matching swim skirt, I think that would make we feel much more comfortable. There's an irony here: wearing a skirt making me feel more comfortable.
