Bearbottom Clothing makes adorable swimwear for men, many with prints reminiscent of 3 paragraphs ago like these Mosaic Fish, Rainbow Sunglasses, Catch of the Day, and another Pineapple Party (one noticeable difference: these trunks are about half the price of the other fruit party).
With every purchase, Bearbottom donates clothing to folks in need in Bangladesh, starting with their own garment makers' families and extending out to schools, hospitals, and more. Bearbottom also partners with eco-conscious facilities (certified by both Alliance and Accord) when making their clothing and work to empower their staff and their communities in several ways.
