Orlebar Brown


Listique’s Recommendation

‘Intrinsically British but ultimately international.’ We believe that Orlebar Brown’s description of their own brand is perfectly in sync with their British approach to design, yet international mindset when it comes to the appropriate fashion needed for travel and holidays. OB’s ‘shorts you can swim in’ are the ideal alternative to men’s beach and swimming shorts. Once you have bought one pair, you won’t be able to stop. These shorts are beautifully made, extremely stylish, comfortable and durable. Whether you want to have a dip in the pool, sea, or head for a drink and a bite to eat, there’s no need to change when dressed in Orlebar Brown’s stunning designs. What’s not to love? You also can’t not take advantage of Orlebar Brown’s design your own service, which allows you to turn your favourite drawing, graphic or photograph into a personalised pair of swim shorts!



About Orlebar Brown

Adam Brown founded Orelbar Brown after a few realisations that he had while on holiday for a friend’s 40th birthday. The first was that the women looked significantly better around the pool than men. The second, was that having to change out of swimwear to go for lunch, was a bit of a bore. Orlebar Brown was launched in 2007, and the brand hasn’t looked back since. Their range of versatile shorts are wonderfully reliable, made with quick-drying fabrics and signature side fasteners. Yet they are also beautifully chic in design, with a tailored fit unique to the brand, based on the traditional pattern of a man’s suit trouser. The brand also produces gorgeous designer polo shirts, knitwear, t-shirts, shirts, trousers, footwear, sweats, sunglasses, jackets and outwear, accessories, rash guards and a kids' collection.
