Bathing suit manufacturers and fashionistas around the world, please come forward and justify men’s bathing suit liners. If you can’t justify them, at least point me in the right direction as to what in the hell you’re thinking.
I’m fortunate enough to live next to the beach. Step into any legitimate surf shop and you can’t find a bathing suit with these horrible hair nets in them. I’ll point out that this is a picture of a men’s bathing suit by Mossimo purchased at Target. To complicate matters, you can go into those same legimate surf shops and purchase many other bathing suits by Mossimo without these horrible inserts.
Mossimo started out as a surf clothing company and then tried to sell stylish clothing to the masses. Somewhere along the line they started putting fish nets in their suits. Does this mean the mass of inlanders prefer bathing suit liners?
I’m not some kind of free balling militant, I wear jockey underwear. I like to have some gumption when I’m walking around in normal clothes and, yes, loose underwear bothers me, too. I definitely don’t like boxers. But I can’t imagine constraining my manliness in a pair of trunks when I’m walking around on the beach.
Frankly, I can’t figure out what in the world the men’s bathing suit liner is supposed to accomplish.
