What started as a musing in the Russell Surfboards shaping bay has turned into one of our most in-depth development projects yet. We built The Brotherhood Trunks to blur the line between a modern day board short and the Americana “swim trunks” of the 50s, bridging the legacies with new fabrics not much seen in the world of boardshorts. And 100% USA Made.

The best boardies you’ll ever own, the unique rash-free no-seam thigh design is frictionless for maximum comfort whether you're lounging or surfing. And these beauties feature dual hidden zipper pockets along the side seams - staying true to the traditional surf trunk look with the added convenience and confidence of real pockets. 

Cut to the perfect just-above-the-knee length with a bit of a scallop – they’re a nod to the trunks of yesteryear. 

The real star of the show is our just-the-right weight American Made (from Berry Amendment Compliant--military spec) 7.2oz stretch woven fabric – insanely comfortable, military grade durable, and quick drying. You’ll find yourself wearing these in the water, to the store, out for lunch--for Days. Weeks. Years. (Hell. Your kid will gleefully claim them when you kick the bucket.)

Russell Surfboards is an iconic Newport Beach, California shop that’s been hand making surfboards since 1967. Our longtime friend JP Roberts is the mastermind of all the beautiful boards that come out of their shaping bay and is a huge proponent of keeping his boards American Made while big brands are producing them overseas. With a keen and meticulous eye for style and anything else he puts his hands on (especially boardshorts) we worked with JP in lockstep to make sure we could deliver you the best damn pair of trunks you’ve ever owned. Take the leap.
