I want to order some trunks but really don’t know where to start! Your best bet would be to first email us so we can help you. I can advise you on colour and design, and even choose the best pair for you if you really can’t make a decision.
Do you provide different style trunks? How do I know which ones to pick? Yes we offer 2 different styles, briefs and square shorts.
