O I do like to be beside the seaside in this fabulous, mens bathing suit!

Be the envy of every gentleman at the seaside in this stylish ensemble, perfect for those who don't favour the all-in-one. This bathing costume consists a pair of long shorts with elasticated waistband matched to our unique 'swimming waistcoat' for a fun, steampunk take on victorian  costume. When not bathing, the mens waistcoat looks exceptional when teamed with a casual linen suit and  straw boater, perfect for strolling along the prom, prom, prom as part of an Edwardian costume!

The waistcoat features mock pockets with button detail so that you don't accidentally take your pocket watch for a dip and  buttons high over the chest for a smart and  modest look. The waistcoat can be adjusted at the back.

The outfit is made from striped poly-cotton which comes in range of colours and both pieces are fully lined. The material is pre-washed and sample garments have been tested in salt and chlorinated water. The buttons are silver coloured plastic with anchor detail as metal would not survive  exposure to water very well.
