At American Eagle, our men’s swimsuit shorts aren’t just made for lookin’ good on the beach. They’re also made for feeling good, too. We use the most comfortable, lightweight fabric in every pair. That means quick-drying shorts that hold up over time and move with you, because when you're in swim shorts, you're usually on the go. AE swim trunks and board shorts are made with stretch fabrication so you feel comfortable when you’re on the move, and so you can run, jump and dive right into the water feeling as good as you look. Other details like an elastic waistband and fly closures keep the fit custom to you with every wear.
