This vintage swimsuit was made in the 1930s by Webfoot, a major producer of swimsuits during the era. It is made of two tone blue wool with a diamond pattern and a vertically striped waistband. The suit has a flapped key/coin pocket, is belted, and has a built-in supporter. The belt is a Jantzen, and is in a complementary blue.
These vintage swim trunks were made during WWII for the United States Navy. They are a large size 42 waist, and were sold to me as New Old Stock, probably because of their uncommon size. They were manufactured for the Clothing Supply Office from 100% wool. They were made under contract no. N140-62236s-39527B. They have a high waisted cut, a drawstring waist, flapped coin/key pocket, and diamond shaped crotch gusset. The front is lined with soft cotton.

These vintage swim trunks were made by Arrow (yes that Arrow- the one that made shirts and ties) in the late ’40s or 1950s.

The front is lined and they have a key pocket and drawstring waist.

This vintage men’s swimsuit was made in the 1950s by Campus Sportswear. It is a white stretch material with blue stripes. The waist elastic has lost some of its stretch it would seem, and the drawstring is missing.
I got this swimsuit as part of a lot of ’50s ones. This one has a lower rise and higher cut sides, so even though the tag looks from that era, I’m thinking they’re a bit later. They’re bright red in a shiny satin type material. The front is lined and they have a drawstring waist.
