From Seamwork:

It's time to have fun in the sun this month, and what better way to do so than to head to your favorite water spot. Whether you frequent a lake, river, beach or your backyard swimming pool, grab some friends, a cooler full of snacks and beverages, sun screen, a floatie and you're ready for some serious summer relaxation. Anyone can sport this pair of swim trunks for all sorts of water activities.

Harrington has a wide elastic waistband accompanied by a drawstring for maximum comfort, mesh lined pockets to keep water out of unnecessary places, and a vintage inspired inseam length. You can also make Harrington out of a lightweight woven fabric such as chambray or linen to wear regularly throughout the summer. Pair Harrington with Eugene (Seamwork, Issue 20) or Paxson (Seamwork, Issue 11) for the perfect summer outfit.
