Men's Board Shorts

Board shorts are a staple in any warm-weather wardrobe and at THE ICONIC we have a stylish and current range for you to choose from. Whether you’re after a brightly patterned pair or a classic black design, we have got something for every personality and style.

Originally known as surf trunks and later as jams, board shorts, or boardies were developed for surfing, and have since become popular as general beach and all-purpose summer wear. The biggest names in swimwear utilise advanced design features such as quick-dry fabrications, chafe-reducing flat seams and offer UV protection against the sun’s harmful rays. Velcro fly fastenings allow for easy on-and-off, while lace-up designs and drawstring waistbands ensure shorts cannot be pulled off the body by the force of waves. Built-in mesh briefs are comfortable and supportive, and fastened pockets will keep keys, cash and cards safe when you hit the surf.

Make a stylish statement in a pair of boldly printed boardies. Whether a geometric print or a tropical design, our range of patterned shorts, from international and homegrown brands like Billabong, are an ideal choice whether you’re in or out of the water. Simply swap flip-flops for low-tops when you head to the city from the surf. More streamlined and simple styles have trans-seasonal appeal and will transcend from beach to bar when teamed with a pique cotton polo shirt.

Whether you’re after a high performance pair or a colour-blocked design, at THE ICONIC we’ve got something for everyone. Browse through our hand-picked edit of men’s board shorts to find the perfect pair for you.
