Warming Trend

Men's swimsuit fashions for 2013

Behold, the pleasures of summer. Ice cream cones…. Men in swimsuits…. Huh? We got there awfully fast, didn’t we? And, well, why not? One of summer’s gayer pleasures is to let our eyes wander across the sea of men lounging by the sea – or pool – in their swimwear. Swimwear with style. Swimwear with sex appeal. Swimwear that is less about getting wet and more about looking good. But what of that frozen confection? It surely doesn’t hurt matters when the man wearing said swimwear is blissfully enjoying an ice cream cone. But he’d best eat it fast, because it looks like we’re in the midst of a warming trend.
