Our story

From the design studio to the beach, here at Sanwin Beachwear we have one clear objective: to give you the confidence, comfort and style to help you stand out from the crowd, no matter where in the world you may be. Why? Because we know that when you look good, feel great, and find yourself in a beautiful environment, there’s nothing you can’t achieve. After all, this isn’t just about making beautiful, distinctive, high quality swimwear - we’re on a mission to make you the man that turns heads on the sand.

The devil's in the detail

When we set about creating a game-changing line of swimwear, we knew even the smallest details would become significant. Every product we choose to put our brand name on will have already undergone countless alterations, variations and re-designs before we’re happy enough to release it to our eager customers, simply because we strive for perfection in all that we do.

We take great pride in every item on the Sanwin Beachwear range. Each comes with its own unique story, each has been inspired by an exotic location we love, and each has been carefully designed to provide the comfort, durability and striking look you deserve. That’s why we adjust the fit of our swimwear by hand, over and over again, until we’re sure it will meet the very highest of standards.

How it all began

Sanwin Beachwear is all about capturing the spirit of adventure, and rediscovering that thrill you get when you touch down in an exotic location, look at the glittering water, and see the possibilities ahead. Who knows better about that sensation than an airline pilot? Our adventure began when a Dutch pilot combined his love for travel with a passion for fashion design, and took inspiration from the beautiful beaches he would visit while out of the cockpit. However, try as he might, he couldn’t find a beachwear brand that ticked all his boxes, or met his exacting standards for comfort, style and quality. From this, an idea began to form in his mind as he flew back the The Netherlands - why not set up an exclusive men’s beachwear brand, which combines high quality materials with cutting-edge, bold, contemporary design? The idea was shared with some of the sharpest minds in the industry, and before long, Sanwin Beachwear was launched with a wave of anticipation and excitement - finally, here was a swimwear brand that truly understood: looking good just isn’t good enough.
