My Dad Called Them Trunks

Posted by Brett Glass on Wed, May 27, 2009 at 10:34 AM

So tomorrow you'll see my first Sold Out column—men's summer picks—in the paper. I'm totally excited about it, make sure to check it out!
One thing I didn't get to mention (so many things, so little space) is swimwear. In my extensive research for the column (umm...shopping) I found a bumper crop of great styles, all at Local 35.
Owner Justin Machus said he's never carried so many swimsuits; this season he just kept finding pieces he couldn't pass up.
They've all got an early-80s trunk kind of feel—mid-thigh, sleek, so much cooler (and more comfortable) than the baggy board shorts you'll find at the mall.
A pair from Modern Amusement:
