Behold! This Is The Brokini: A New Bikini For Men!
The Brokini is an unconventional beachwear item designed by two Canadian friends. Taylor Field and Chad Sasko came up with the idea for this product, which is described on its own website as “the perfect swimwear to make your parents wonder where they went wrong”.
- Brokinis for bros have the same inherent paradoxes as their aesthetic, which is to say, they’re not terribly attractive, but hard to look away from in a way that’s hard to imagine.
- Brokines, for example, are one-pieces, so they closely resemble a modest Victorian bathing costume, as opposed to the revolutionary two-piece swimwear they took their name from.
- They are actually thongs with straps, speedos with suspenders, or budgie-smugglers with straps.
At a Paris fashion shoot in 1946, the modern bikini was introduced to great fanfare and even greater scandal. The bikini was invented by a French inventor named Louis Réard after he noticed that women at his local beach were rolling up the edges of their bathing suits in order to get a better tan and he decided to (more or less literally) eliminate the middleman.
Could you wear the Brokini public? Would you be brave enough to do so?
