Those Walmart ones are so cheap and cool looking! Those Target and Converse ones also can be considered purchased! http://www.primermagazine.com Andrew Ethan, Glad you like it! What about it would you like to see more of? http://robbins-computing.com Rick How about the quality? I really like the K-Mart pair but afraid they will disintegrate during the first wash. The old saying, you can buy 3 pairs for $30.00 that may last you the season or one pair for $30 that may last you years. I still have a pair from 2003ish. Justin Why the heck would you want swim shorts with a cargo pocket? The American Eagle selections are over branded, too. H&M has some great swim shorts for under $20. Heck, Old Navy’s options at $15 also look good. http://www.themodestman.com Brock Awesome guide! I was just looking for a new pair of swim trunks and have been seeing all of these $50+ pairs on Bonobos and the like. Why would you spend that much on swimwear? What are we, women? -B Rob Love this site…it’s easy for someone to give “style advice” when everything is $$$$$ You guys understand that young pros want to look legit, but not break the bank. Keep doing your thing. http://www.primermagazine.com Andrew Thanks Rob! I really appreciate that. ChrisReetz I picked these up from Old Navy Outlet for $7.50 today. They do have an elastic waist which is a no-go for some, but the length is perfect. http://oldnavy.gap.com/browse/product.do?cid=26066&vid=1&pid=117768&scid=117768002 Jeff K I agree with Rob completely. It is TOO easy to say “oh, buy this and that for $150″ and “this looks great if you can shell out the $75 for these trunks”…you guys are the exception to that rule. Jeff K jalin The swimming shorts are very nice and stylish and are having a nice deal to go go with it.
