Unique swim trunks

Bought these for my husbands birthday and he's a scientist so loves the Darwin/Museum link up! He says they're very comfortable and soft fabric and the sizing is perfect/as expected. Wasn't sure if he'd like the shorter length but he does. The only reason we deducted a star is that he'd have liked side pockets like other swim shorts he has had in the past, as he likes to wear them out as shorts sometimes, not just for swimming - but I think it's likely unpurpose so you don't actually go swimming with your phone or wallet in your pocket - perhaps a positive?

Board Shorts

They feel great. Look awesome. They're pretty tight, but I think I'll appreciate that when I actually get to some swimming time. Maybe I just need to shed a few pounds...

Thumbs up

Look and feel nice. Fit as expected. Swimming shorts not used in anger, yet, because of lockdown!

Great shorts, only one tiny gripe

Love these shorts. The design is really nice, along with the style and fit. Zip pocket on the back was also a nice and useful detail. Like the partnership with the Natural History museum. My only gripe is the Finisterre and National History partnership logo is a very cheap looking transfer. It looks like a sticker that is supposed to be taken off. It deflects from the overall great idea around the partnership which is disappointing.
