With the look of shorts and the functionality (and support) of a swimsuit, this option is perfect for traveling. These swimsuits typically have a mesh lining and a zipper (or possibly Velcro) closure. They favor a button front instead of an elastic waistband. The advantage of trunks/shorts combos beyond being a twofer when on vacation is that they can do double duty when you're on a date. If you're not sure that grilling party will end up with everyone enjoying a cooling dip in the pool, you'll have all the bases covered.

Shorts are available in solid colors as well as patterned styles and in lengths starting mid-thigh or longer. This makes them a good choice for tall men who might want to downplay skinny legs (go longer) or shorter men who want to lengthen the look of their legs with shorter styles. Shorts can also have slimming lines that lose the topside elastic and gathered fabric that accentuate love handles.
