ANDREW CHRISTIAN

 

ANDREW CHRISTIAN IS BACK!  Quality and style are great and have something for all, especially with great prices and constant sales.

The classic brand that long-defined gay underwear and swimwear style and led gay social marketing ahead of everybody, AC had taken a suboptimal path for a while, with designs that seemed better for Go-Go boys than real life, but they've flipped it around and make some great swimsuits (and more) that --thanks to continuous sales-- are dirt cheap!

A few of note:   (New gear posts constantly, though!)

SPEEDO:  Powerflex Eco Solar

 

New Speedo Solar suits quickly winning fans

As covered in our "25 Best Kept Secrets," it took Speedo a few years after their LGBT influencer bonanza to make changes to create products more in line with gay styles, but they've done it with the new Powerflex Eco Solar suits, which moved from 1" sides to smoother ~2" and are great for laps OR a day on the beach with your boys

THE BEST DEALS ON THE WEB

Amazon sells plenty of "good enough" swimsuits to our boys with decent products, good styling, crazy cheap prices, and the invaluable benefit of free returns through Amazon Prime.  Here are some trusted suits that turn $10 of spandex into you looking like a million bucks!

 

MIZOK EXTRA LOW RISE MULTI-COLOR CAMP PATTERN SPEEDOS 

Not gonna lie:  These are cheap AF and if you're in good shape, they're guaranteed to be hot AF on you!  (Truth.)  Another blatent but expertly-done Zara-like copy of Addicted, these camp suits are very flattering and very low rise.  Note:  Flags and other designs fit differently from the Camo suits.  Mizok is not the maker, just a reseller brand for Ali Baba products.  Red White & Blue camo suit oddly works, too.  Listen carefully to size guidance!

UXH MONDRIAN DESIGN WELL-MADE MODUS VIVENDI REPLICA

No question about stealing the design from the Greeks at Modus Vivendi (who took it from a Dutch artist, in fairness), but this is another very well made --but crazy cheap-- Speedo that is perfect for a day at the pool or the beach.  Flattering and well-cut.  The optional mini pad helps avoid VPL in photos. 

Has three colors, but black looks best in this suit.  Follow size guidance closely

MIZOK SOLID COLOR SPEEDO BRIEF

Hard to beat these suits.  Chinese made and silly cheap, but well enough made to be worthwhile, and MUCH more flattering, forgiving, better designed than suits at 5X the price.  When you need a simple, basic, plain, well-enough --and cheap!-- Speedo in any color, this is it.  The optional mini pad helps avoid VPL in photos. 

 

Comes in 4-5 colors.  Follow size guidance closely

MIZOK RAINBOW STRIPE ADDICTED REPLICA SPEEDO

Another case of the Chinese making a nearly identical version of Addicted's Rainbow Stipes, and doing it just as well as the original designer.  Score one for them in this.  A GREAT Speedo for any Pride or other Rainbow needs.  Always helps to have them around! 

(Has anti-VPL pad, as well!)

Follow size guidance closely

MIZOK BROKEN CHAINS DESIGN SPEEDO

Another cheap, Chinese-made suit that is perfectly fine for tanning or a pool or beach (a long as you're not trying to impress anybody).  A well-enough made swimsuit that will last long enough for you and has a cute design and is both flattering and forgiving.  Another good one for boys on a budget!   Follow sizing closely and ONLY get Prime products that have free returns because Chinese sizes are so wacky

GARY MAJDELL CONTOUR POUCH BIKINI

The Amazon-distributed Gary Majdell brand is another one for H&M / Zara-type needs.  Good enough for what you need, amazing at that price!   A great source for USA, Pride Rainbows, and metallic suits and group costumes.  Always returnable on Prime and always a steal, but no drawstring!  NOT for active swimming or running!  Ha.   Contour pouch is the smaller, more attention-getting cut, but still appropriate for public

Comes in a massive array of designs.  Sizes are U.S. standard

GARY MAJDELL HOT BODY BIKINI SPEEDOS

A slightly more traditional cut than the countour pouch, but also gives up the nice big comfy pouch (but a well-cut design).  Like all his products, it's more Target-like than Zara-like, but just fine for laying in the sun, and perfect for that fun group costume that you will accidentally ruin or leave behind at an afterparty somewhere in Brooklyn.  Another one (in dozens of prints!) that can't be beaten on price.

Definitely handy that Gary M. suits are all U.S. sizes.  No guesswork

GARY MAJDELL SHINY METALLIC SPEEDOS

The Gary M. Brand makes metallic in all of their fits, especially contour pouch and hot body suits. Be forewarned that these will have a very short half-life on staying shiny, and their suits with metallic printing will be lucky to survive 2-3 washings before the metallic print wears off.

Nevertheless, these are unbeatable for costume potential and you'll see them all through any fun Gay Halloween Party!  (or Pride or anytime really!)    All in US sizes
