This summer, we’re introducing three lengths in our Men’s Board Shorts. You can choose from 10″, 8″ or and 6″ inseams. Our board shorts are made from our quick-drying microfiber and can be styled for anything you’ll be doing this summer — from hanging by the pool and surfing at the beach to rocking out at a music festival. We asked our AE.com Men’s Merchandise Manager Bryan N. to give us the lowdown on the newest styles.
Our classic 10” inseam board short hits right at the knee. It’s the classic board short length you’ll find from any surf brand. This style fits perfectly into our festival trend. Pair it with a cool tee or tank for a classic summer look.
This is our brand new 8” inseam board short, which hits right above the knee. It’s a bit preppier and is perfect for that guy who doesn’t want a longer, roomier board short. We love it because it’s casual enough to wear while you grab a bite to eat or when hit the beach for the day.
The brand new 6” inseam board short hits a couple inches above the knee. It’s a really comfortable short and doesn’t show off too much thigh. It’s also super preppy, and the trend in swim is definitely going much shorter. We outfit this head turning style with a short sleeve button-down or a V-neck tee.
