It’s ten years since Orlebar Brown arrived on the scene with its tailored approach to swimshorts- and to celebrate this milestone, they have launched a brand new sport swimshort; the Jack.
Based on exactly the same pattern as their OB Classic shorts and made from ultra-lightweight nylon and weighing in at just 70 grams, this multipurpose short has been created as a more sporting approach to their iconic swim shorts. Following on from the OB Classics named; Springer, Setter, Bulldog and Dane, the Jack takes its name from the energetic Jack Russell Terrier.
Made with 13% stretch in the fabric and a part-elasticated waistband for increased movement, the Jack is designed to be flexible in function while remaining true to the signature, close aesthetic of Orlebar
Brown’s classic swim shorts.
‘The Jack is something we’re really excited about. Over the last 10 years we have really focused on building the DNA of our OB Classic shorts and now seems like per- fect time to introduce a new member of the family. The opportunities are endless but sourcing the right fabric was key. The lightness and flexibility of these shorts make them perfect for the gym and sports as well as a dip in the pool.’ -Adam Brown, founder of Orlebar Brown
Available as part of their new Spring 2017 collection, the Jack is launching in three seasonal colourways- navy, bluestone and Pomodoro- with four more following on in May.
