“Swimwear sales usually pick up in February, but this year there has been demand right from the start of the year. With the Easter holiday so early too, swimmers are doing really well weeks before the sales rush started for the holiday season in 2012,” she explains.
One factor in boosting sales, she believes, is the quality of the offer this year: “Men’s swimwear is really hot. Even plain colours are more vibrant, or given extra interest with texture or perhaps a contrasting waistband. Scarlet and bright royal blue are dominant, as are endless variations on stripes - horizontal, vertical, candy coloured or more subtle tones.”
Deadgoodundies.com stocks mostly men’s underwear brands, plus swimwear ranges from its best selling collections. Men’s swim shorts and swim briefs are popular buys all year round as men buy just in time for a holiday or when they need new swimmers for laps in the pool. New designs are arriving daily as most new collections don’t start arriving until late February.
Brands such as Bruno Banani and HOM offer high fashion designs. HOM’s prints include holiday destination stamps - like those people used to stick on their suitcase - and surfers with their boards. Bruno Banani’s impressive array features retro florals, a beach hut print, great black-and-white combinations, and a quirky reptilian look depicting a snake eating an apple.
Jane Garner says men are often more willing to enjoy colour in their swimwear even when they are traditionalists with underwear: “A man might wear only plain white or black boxers, but on the beach he wants something more lively and fun. This year’s prints are sharp, interesting and some really do raise a smile.”
