James Bond Octopussy Swim Shorts - By Orlebar Brown

Tailored, quick-dry swim shorts from the Orlebar Brown + 007 Octopussy collaboration. Based on the brand's Bulldog shape, the James Bond Octopussy Swim Shorts by Orlebar Brown have a signature mid length and feature a repeat pattern using experimental 007 artwork created as part of the 1983 film.

The sartorial swim short is where it all began for Orlebar Brown; designed to give effortless style wherever you are. Based on the pattern of a man’s traditional tailored trouser, this design offers the perfect blend of form and function. It's not just a swim short - it’s a short you can swim in. Wear on the beach or by the pool, and then head straight for a drink or lunch.

Backstory. The iconic octopus 007 artwork here was created by Maciek Piotrowski. The Octopalace, an exotic Indian residence, is home to Octopussy and her women-only sisterhood. Bond arrives on the floating island disguised as an crocodile in one of Q's aquatic devices, unaware that Octopussy is watching his every move on her surveillance cameras. 

Details. The design has a shaped waistband and adjustable side fasteners for a superior fit. The front is closed with a concealed press stud and zip fly front fastening. Hip pockets and a single rear zipped welt pocket add functionality, while tailored darts give great shape. The shorts feature side splits for enhanced movement and are net lined for extra comfort and security. Each pair comes with a durable water-resistant drawstring bag to protect your shorts or store your valuables by the pool. Made in Europe from 100% quick-drying polyester tested to 50mg/l of chlorine.

Care. Gentle machine wash at 30 degrees.
