Men's Shirt, Shorts & Trunks
Sizes: S-M-L-XL-XXL

The shirt, shorts and trunks are designed for two-way stretch fabric with 75% stretch on the lengthwise grain.  We suggest using swimwear fabrics with spandex-LycraŽ.

The men's pull-over, very close fitting shirt has short raglan sleeves and a collar.  The side panels are made from contrasting fabric.  The very close fitting shorts have elastic in the waist along with a drawstring and the bottom edges have elastic.   The swim trunks have a lined front and elastic in the waist, along with a drawstring.  The leg openings are finished with elastic.
