Men’s speedos made from vintage t-shirts

Some one found my site under the Google search, “bathing suits made from vintage t-shirts.” It sounded really interesting so I had to Google it myself and I’m really glad I did.

Philip Heckman is the creative genius behind these snazzy little things. Logos on the suits range from Madonna to D.A.R.E. to my personal favorite, Cher! They only cost $45 and can be purchased on LowTee.

While the suits are primarily for men, I think I might buy a bottom and match it with a plain top from J. Crew. They have really great simple bathing suits that can be bought separately and I love this idea!

For more information, read Boston Globe’s article on the item, “Goes well with green.”

  1. Your site keeps popping up in my emails (google alerts) because of your name. Those bathers are actually quite cool. Nice blog you have here, I have actually been reading it since google keeps telling me about it.

  2. Not only the suits but now it is also easy to find the apparels with good quality and different fabulous colors that fits us.
