Review: Manus Mens Swim Brief- Tropical Leopard
There is nothing better than a wearing a fun swimsuit that is eye catching. The Manus Men’s Swim Brief offers fun style and great comfort. If you are in the market for a new swimsuit and want to get lots of attention then you should pay attention to this review. The bold print I am reviewing is the Tropical Leopard. At first glance it seems like its a bit much for a mens swimsuit but sometimes our wardrobe needs some whimsy. A rainbow confection animal print. It’s Lisa Frank meets Jersey Housewives.
There is a vintage feel to the design of the swimsuit. This is a full brief swimsuit. And I say full brief because today’s trend for swimsuits tend to be a lower cut on the waist and a higher cut on the thigh. The 3 inch side seams with full wide front and back coverage evoke an old school chic look for the beach or pool. The fast drying material is a Polyester and Spandex blend. The front is fully lined in a nude color of the same material. The waistband does not have a drawstring so if you are gonna go jump in waves be warned. I don’t foresee that to be too much of an issue since the fit at the waist is perfect. My only real issue with the design was the lack of tightness around the legs. I prefer a brief to stay in place a little more securely. All I needed was a thin piece of elastic around the legs to keep the back in place.
I was definitely noticed at the gym when i swam my laps and hopped in the jacuzzi wearing this bathing suit. I got a few compliments from guys asking where I got it. I was surprised to see how receptive guys were being about such a bold print. Normally after the jacuzzi I sit in the sauna hoping my bathing suit with dry a bit before I throw it into my bag. I was really surprised by how dry the suit got in such a short period of time. So for the guys that hate putting your shorts over a wet bathing suit at the beach you should check this brand out.
The summer might be over but it’s always a good time to stock up on fun swimwear. Go for it guys!
