THORSUN is a swimwear line focused on creating the perfect swim short for the modern, discerning traveler. The collection runs from essential solids through to original prints and hand embroidered details. The shorts are designed to be just as versatile as the person wearing them- from a day at the beach to a pool party to a street parade during Carnaval.
At THORSUN we believe in only using the finest fabric and finishes. The fit is generous and flattering on a wide range of body types - as any well-tailored garment should be. Practical details such as deep pockets and a concealed internal security pocket round out what we believe to be the most stylish, versatile, streamlined and unique pair of swim shorts on the market.
THORSUN shorts were developed with a young Australian tailor and avid surfer, now in residence on Savile Row, London. The team applied a fresh, laid back approach to complement the traditional men’s tailoring. After many iterations, our signature short, the Apollo, was born. Its precise lines have a bespoke tailor’s attention to detail, all while maintaining a casual and easy sensibility.

George Sotelo is a NYC based swimwear designer. George grew up between Los Angeles and Mexico which started his fascination with travel, cultural differences, local artisans, music, and the beach. The idea to create a swimwear line came after several years of traveling with his friends to beaches around the world. George's extensive experience working for a luxury retail consulting firm, advising designers and international retailers allowed him to recognize the need for functional shorts during travel. He launched his own line, THORSUN with the idea to wear these shorts to the colorful beaches of Thailand through the crowded street parades in Rio. THORSUN shorts are perfect to wear in any occasion around the world, and embody George’s love for culture, exploration and fun.
