Fitted, quick-dry swim trunks from the 2020 Orlebar Brown + 007 collaboration. Based on the Orlebar Brown Bassett shape, these shorts have a signature form-fit and are inspired by a style worn by Bond in Thunderball (1965).
This design offers the perfect blend of form and function. With a dash of stretch and elegant metal-detail drawcords, the Bassett offers supreme comfort and movement in and out of the water. It's not just a swim trunk - wear at the beach or by the pool, and then head straight to the bar for a drink.
Backstory. This design is inspired by the style worn by 007 in Thunderball, while he was diving and then en route to his hotel, elegantly demonstrating how a classic swim trunk can be transformed with a polo shirt when out of the water.
Details. This classic swim trunk is cut from Italian stretch-knit fabric with a pique texture in a cool white. The understated, quick-dry design has a fully adjustable internal drawcord at the waist, finished with polished gold-effect metal ends. Machine washable 90% nylon, 10% elastane. Made in Portugal.
