Notes on fit
Our signature ‘POOL’ shorts are designed to feel slightly more snug around the waist and bum than typical sizing. The reason for this is to allow for a more tailored fit look around the bum and legs, whilst allowing for the natural stretch of the fabric. It creates a comfortable fit, whilst looking well fitted simultaneously.
So if you wear a medium, and prefer a looser fit, size up.

Notes on design
Exo-shell design, takes away the bulk and seams against the skin, making way for a super comfortable and flush fit.
The signature ‘POOL’ waistband cord string detail, double functions as a key or wallet fastening that you can hang into your back pocket.
A subtly integrated drainage is stitched into each pocket corner, to reduce unnecessary hardware against the skin.
About our fabric
Not only does it look great, it feels even better. Expertly engineered in Italy, our state-of-the-art fabric uses a patented, tridimensional elasticity construction to provide maximum comfort during every moment of your day, with very low maintenance. It is designed to look and feel impeccable over time – even after many, many washes.
Other features include —
Sun Protection: Thanks to the special construction of the fabric and the use of super-opaque microfibres, our fabric filters the sun’s rays offering a high level of protection against the damaging effects of ultraviolet rays. (Laboratory tests carried out according to the AS/NSZ 4399 (Australian/New Zealand standard))
Breathability: The open honeycomb construction allows air to circulate between the fibres. Their breathable qualities make it cooler and more hygienic.
Chlorine Resistance: Thanks to the special construction of the knit with the LYCRA® fibres, the fabric is more durable and resistant to the corrosive action of chlorine and protect it from the salt, mould and corrosive agents in sun creams.
No pilling: Our fabric is quick and easy to maintain. The drying time is speedy, and fabrics are effortlessly easy care: they can be hand-washed, machine washed or dry cleaned as required.
Notes on colour
Whitecaps - sometimes referred to as White horses - are the white forming peaks at the top of waves. When water droplets at the edge of the waves are disturbed and break apart from one another, the light from the sun becomes scattered, making them appear white to our eyes. Similarly, the white of our fabric reflects the light with a distinctive luminosity, appearing ultra-white to the eye under sunlight."
"We have spent years developing the perfect shorts, testing prototype after prototype, searching for the perfect balance between function, performance, comfort and style. We've taken a minimalist, reductionist approach to the design, stripping back as much bulk as possible whilst keeping all the functionality one needs in everyday use. They may not look radical, but they are in fact unique in fit and construction, by incorporating the natural stretch of the fabric into the fit, shaping the bum so it's not baggy, allowing the high-tech fabric to do its work moulding to each person’s shape, becoming unique to each wearer. Our waistband is not just a signature detail to identify POOL but is also a key or wallet clip that functions together with the rear pocket. Making the most out of every element is what makes these shorts so special and essential for your wardrobe."
