Roc Pool Mid-Length Swim Shorts
About the product
Our bestselling photographic swim shorts feature an iconic shot that is intrinsically OB—the open sea, friends relaxing by the pool and a classic modernist hotel on the coast.Photograph exclusive to Orlebar Brown: Guests round the swimming pool at the Hotel du Cap Eden-Roc, Antibes, France – Slim Aarons, 1969
The tailored swim short is where it all began for Orlebar Brown; designed to give you effortless style wherever you are. Based on the pattern of a man’s traditional tailored trouser with signature side-fasteners to adjust and crafted from fabric that dries quickly, the OB Classic Bulldog offers the perfect blend of form and function. Not just a swim short—it’s a short you can swim in.

OB Classic Swim Shorts
The inside of our shorts contains a mesh-net lining, so you can hop on a surfboard, play tennis, swim or just lounge around on the beach in perfect safety. Plus we have a zip fly and a metal popper enclosure, so there really shall be no escape. The side fasteners are one of our distinguishing features, they’re made up of up to six component parts for a properly tailored fit, which you can adjust.
Nobody wants to stand around in soaking wet shorts, getting cold and uncomfortable. That's why we use 100% polyamide fabric, which has also been chlorine, salt water, light and rub-tested too. Not only is it durable, it dries in a flash.How to choose
