Freenote Standard Issue Boardshorts

Swimming trunks are among some of the most ephemeral pieces of clothing a guy can wear. Due in part to uninspired design and for many a strictly seasonal use, they come and go without leaving that much of an impression. Freenote Cloth is breaking that mold with their new board-shorts made from deadstock nylon sourced from US Air Force flight jackets.

This up-cycled material has been totally transformed by by the designers at the family owned, San Juan Capistrano based brand. While still retaining the olive coloring and militaristic look, these shorts feature an interior lined with a Japanese nylon finish, custom corozo belt buttons, and a reinforced back panel for comfort and durability all summer long. Made right here in America, these might be the first pair of swim trunks you buy that leave you something other than nonplussed. Prices are set at $160. [Purchase]
