Summer is almost here, and with it comes the search for the perfect swim shorts. Enter Andrew and Cole, the Swiss brand taking the men’s swimwear market by storm. Its signature swim shorts are a masterclass in style and function, offering a level of comfort and versatility that’s hard to find elsewhere.

We set out to create swim shorts that you can wear all day, from the beach to the bar,” says co-founder Lara. “Something that looks great, feels great, and performs great.”

The secret to Andrew and Cole’s success lies in its attention to detail. Every aspect of its swim shorts has been carefully considered, from the quick-drying, pre-washed fabric to the thoughtful pocket placement.

The result is shorts that are as practical as stylish, able to withstand the rigors of an active summer lifestyle. “We wanted to create a pair of shorts that can keep up with you, no matter where your summer takes you,” Lara explains.

Say Goodbye to Uncomfortable Swim Shorts

One of the standout features of Andrew and Cole’s swim shorts is its innovative lining system. Traditional mesh linings can often be uncomfortable and irritating, especially when wet and worn for extended periods.

Andrew and Cole’s solution? Eliminate the mesh altogether. “Our lining is made from a soft, breathable fabric that provides the same support as mesh, but without the discomfort,” says Cole. “It’s a game-changer.

The lining’s quick-drying properties are another bonus, ensuring men won’t be left with that unpleasant, damp feeling after a dip in the water. “No one likes sitting around in wet shorts. Our lining dries in minutes, so you can go from the beach to lunch without missing a beat.

Sustainable and Stylish Pieces

Comfort and function are not the only pillars of the Swiss brand. Andrew and Cole is also committed to sustainability. Its swim shorts are made from 100% recycled polyethylene terephthalate (PET) fabric, which means that each pair is helping to reduce plastic waste in our oceans and landfills.

As a brand, we are responsible for minimizing our environmental impact. Using recycled materials is one way we can do that,” shares Lara.

Don’t think that sustainability comes at the cost of style. Andrew and Cole’s swim shorts come in a range of eye-catching colors and patterns, from classic navy to bold tropical prints. The clean, regular fit is modern and timeless, ensuring its wearers look great whether lounging by the pool or exploring a new city. “You shouldn’t have to choose between style and sustainability. With our shorts, you can have both,” Lara points out.

The Ultimate Summer Essential

Offering the perfect blend of comfort, style, and sustainability, it’s no wonder that Andrew and Cole’s swim shorts are being hailed as the ultimate summer essential. It’s the kind of shorts that men reach for again and again – for the beach, pool, or just running errands around town. “Think of it as your go-to for all your summer adventures,” says Lara.

The fashion company’s commitment to creating the best possible product is truly palpable. “We’re always looking for ways to improve and innovate, such as experimenting with new materials or refining our designs,” Lara bares. “We’re never satisfied with the status quo.”

This dedication to excellence sets Andrew and Cole apart, which will make its swim shorts a summer staple for years to come.
