ORLEBAR BROWN Bulldog Swim Shorts


The signature classic swim short from Orlebar Brown, positioned as “not so much a swim short, but a short you can swim in”.

This original tailored swim short was the first in their collection and is now one of their best-sellers, based on the traditional 17 piece pattern of a man’s suit trouser.  A perfect bridge short, tailored for style, comfort and performance which can be worn on and off the beach.
