These board shorts are colorful like the crowd at the local swimming pool. They also have a nice "look at me" aesthetic to draw attention to my awesome diving board moves as well as my belly hair. I am 6'1" 210lbs and got them in a 36 which fits just right, achieving the "relaxed fit" look without going into plumber mode. The material feels nice and has a stretch component, which is pretty cool and dries out fast (duh). Overall I would strongly recommend these, just don't get them in the same color as me and show up at the pool when I'm there or you'll get challenged to a diving board throwdown.
