    I'm looking for some stylish swim trunks that are longer (at or just above the knee) - so far Orlebar Brown Dane's seem like the nicest - but the $240 price tag is hard to swallow - any other suggestions?

    The Bonobos swim trunks and Lands ends swim trunks are actually very similar to the OB's. I have a bunch of OB's and the Lands ends canvas ones are basically knock-offs, at least for the shorter lengths:

    The longer length ones are board type shorts, super cheap right now:

    Outlier also makes great trunks:

    Onia is also okay but the fabric tends to be lighter weight than the above brands making it less streamlined (they bunch when I do flip turns).

    Big fan of Olasul trunks - priced like Sundek or Parke & Ronen, but the quality is similar to Orlebar Brown.

    Some nice looking suits here, but when I'm at the beach, I'm in the water quite a bit - so I can't imagine wearing a cotton or cotton/blend swim suit. Is that pretty standard for most people here?
