Our Story | Sanwin Beachwear

Our Story

When looking good just isn’t good enough. This is what Sanwin Beachwear is all about. It’s not just about making beautiful clothing, it’s about self-confidence, desire, looks and standing out in the crowd. Our beachwear will give you confidence and will make you feel special and unique. That’s what Sanwin Beachwear stands for: Looking good, feeling great

The devil is in the detail

There’s a story behind every product of Sanwin Beachwear. Even the smallest detail is carefully considered. Before we put our brand name on a product, countless designs have ended in the trashcan. Also, the comfort of our clothing is of the utmost importance. Therefore the fit is adjusted by hand over and over again until the product perfectly suits our demands and your wishes.

How it all started


Picture a Dutch airline pilot, flying around the world, visiting hundreds of exotic places and beaches, with a passion for fashion design. While abroad, he discovers many beachwear brands, but none of them appeals to his own wishes. Be it the design, the fit or the quality of the product: it’s just not good enough. Then he gets an idea: Why not start a new and exclusive beachwear brand for men? Back in the Netherlands he discusses this with friends, designers and business partners. This results in the birth of Sanwin Beachwear, exclusive beachwear for exclusive men. And the company slogan will be, of course: “When looking good just isn’t good enough”.
