Perhaps the only garment in which one can truly express themselves without being seen as completely over the top, board shorts are the truest representation of the man. The Pink Dot boardies are a triumph of perfectly placed polka dots on musky millenial pink. Designed in Sweden, printed on extra soft polyester and finished with a velcro-fastening back pocket, Nikben shorts can transition from beach to bar with zero eyebrows raised.
When a Spanish beach-loving ex-banker and a Swedish, Central St Martins’ trained advertising whizz kid meet, board shorts like this happen. While it may be more famous for its cold season than its warm one, Stockholm has the highest number of entrepreneurs per capita in the world - which is why both the business brain (Nik) and creative genius (Ben) behind this swimwear insist it’s the only place for them.
