On a two-week family vacation, all-day wave catching and poolside fun calls for serious sun protection and some super durable swimwear. So, for the boys, there’s Tom & Teddy swimmers and a liberal application of sunscreen! But what makes our trunks ideal for long, hot days of swimming and splashing? At Tom & Teddy HQ, we’re continuously checking out design innovation. We work closely with our factory to ensure every pair of trunks can hold up to prolonged periods of chlorine or saltwater swimming, and we regularly review the fit and finish to check that they’re suitable for lap swimming, spring-board jumping and body surfing.

Here’s why Tom & Teddy Swimmers are particularly splash proof:

Super-soft, quick drying fabric

Comfort is key for big boys and little guys. Our swimmers feel great against the skin and they dry very quickly, so there’s no need to change when you head to the beach bar for lunch.

Two small (but perfectly formed) rear eyelets:

These humble little holes are invaluable if you want to avoid the blown-up look after you’ve jumped into the pool. They let all their air escape, ensuring you don’t inflate. 

A secure and comfortable waistband

A great quality waistband makes all the difference if you’re jumping and playing sports in the water. We’ve added a tough, braided drawcord to ours, nicely finished it off with smart tips to prevent fraying and unravelling.

A silky mesh lining:

No scratchy inner brief here! This lining takes our swim shorts to an ultra-comfort level.

UV Protection

Keeping a check on those harmful rays is essential. We’ve got UPF50 incorporated into the fabric to offer some valuable protection for the skin.

Chlorine and saltwater resistance:

Wear your Tom & Teddies all day, every day and yearinyearout. The durable fabric has been selected because of its chlorine and saltwater propertiesso they’ve been made to last. They could be the toughest swimmers you’ve ever worn!
