Get Inspired: Xavier Samuel in Black Swim Trunks

Ok so todays inspiration are black swim trunks. Xavier has a pair of  matte black, simple, and mid-length swim trunks.  Black swim trunks are a great investment because black is a sophisticated color and one that never goes out of style. It is also an item that you can wear at any age. The trick comes in finding the right cut, length and type of black that caters to your lifestyle/body type.

Pair #1

These are actually quite similar to the ones that Xavier has on except these are a little bit shorter in length. These are from the Ted Baker label and are titled “SHORTTY.”

Pair #2

We basically have the same style shorts, the major difference being that instead of a matte black this black has a sheen to it giving it a boxer look. These come from Dolce & Gabbana and can be purchased at Saks Fifth Avenue.

Pair #3

Another option is to have a black and white print on your boardies. Still classy it just throws a  little twist to the mix. The first pair of swim trunks are from Aussie Bum and the Second are from D&G.

Pair #4

These are plain black board shorts with an elastic waist probably the longest pair of board shorts we have seen thus far. This pair comes from Ralphy at POLO. To be honest I don’t really know how flattering these are.. I guess you don’t know until you try it on..

Pair # 5

To compensate for the last pair being a little geared for a more older/experienced gentleman *awkward laughter* you have these pair from Zanerobe which are geared for younger men.
