Esquire

If you're hitting the beach or the pool this summer, you'll need a cool new pair of swim trunks. Esquire scoured the web to find the coolest men's swimsuits, all of which are blue. Because the quintessential color for men — especially in 2012 — happens to look fantastic near the ocean. And on you, too.
