Check out this awesome collection of menâ€™s swimming trunks from the 1920s to the 40s fromÂ Vintage Haberdasherâ€™sÂ blog. Interestingly they range in colours from black to yellow but there seems to be a preference for the darker colour choices. Most were made from wool with a canvas belt to keep them from sagging and falling off once heavy with water and many have a little coin pocket included in the design.
