Fossil & Black Setter Swim Shorts - Thunderball Edition - By Orlebar Brown

Tailored, quick-dry swim shorts from the 2020 Orlebar Brown + 007 collaboration. Based on the Orlebar Brown Setter shape, these shorts have a signature shorter length and are inspired by a pair worn by Bond in Thunderball (1965).

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 design is inspired by the model worn by 007 during his first encounter with Domino while he’s diving in the Bahamas. 

Details. These shorts are crafted in a fossil shade with a contrasting black waistband. Each pair comes with a durable water-resistant drawstring bag to protect your shorts or store your valuables by the pool. The design has a structured waistband with a button-down belt loop detail, and 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 at the back yoke give shape. The shorts feature side splits for enhanced movement and are net lined for extra comfort and security. Made in Europe from 100% quick-drying polyester tested to 50mg/l of chlorine. Machine washable (30 degrees is optimal).
