Strong Boalt


If you're a man who is active, trim, athletic, you're probably quite happy with the slimming and shortnening of men's swimwear lately. Baggy and long are on the outs as more tailored cuts make their way into the mainstream...

 

Strong Boalt, a men's swimwear line was created in 2009 by fashion designer Amanda Boalt of Palm Beach, Florida. Amanda is the granddaughter of Lilly Pulitzer, an American socialite and fashion designer who became famous for her Florida inspired fashion whose pieces are light and cozy, vibrant and playful. 

Besides Ralph Lauren, where she previously worked, Amanda has been greatly inspired by her grandmother's fashion acumen and insights. Amanda, "While the style of Strong Boalt is more attuned to our time, I will continually hear her voice stressing fun over everything else." 

Amanda offers over two dozen classic swim trunks and board shorts in her shop- some plain colored, but mostly cool, inventine patterns like cabana stripes, elepahants, pineapples, fish or parrots. As she spends a lot of time at the beach or in the water, she is never at a loss for inspiration. 

I love the summer more than any other season so anything beachy, stylish -and this manly, has my attention. See the entirety of Amanda's summer swimwear collection, here.
