ARBITERS OF LUXURY & ADVENTURE.
Hemingsworth is the swimwear label for lovers of quality English fashion that’s impeccably crafted and exquisitely designed.
Our mission at Hemingsworth is to create the most versatile and stylish luxury swim shorts known to man. Shorts that look as good on dry land as they do in the water. Shorts that can take the adventurous, stylish and modern man from an afternoon on the beach to an evening of fine dining and socializing.
As always it’s the details that matter – and the attention to detail in Hemingsworth shorts elevates them into a space that hasn’t been occupied before. We scoured Europe for the finest materials and trims and came back with mother-of-pearl buttons from Italy, a French fly and clever details such as the elasticated invisible waistband. Every pair of shorts is of course made here in London, England, as our stamp of expert tailoring attests to.
The end result is the exclusive Hemingsworth collection of shorts; perfectly cut for use in or out of water, in timeless classic colours. For the discerning modern man.
BEHIND THE BRAND
Hemingsworth was born from one man’s travels, a good deal of qualitative research and a good deal of quality gin. Matt Jones is the gentleman in question. With almost a decade of experience in advertising and traveling virtually nonstop, he decided to focus on what really spoke to his heart: building his own brand and providing the modern man with a product he could see a genuine need for.
While he was traveling it became apparent that a key item was missing from his wardrobe: versatile, high-quality, luxury swim shorts that would function as well on dry land as in the water. Swim shorts that would eliminate the need for wardrobe changes by taking him from the boat to the sea to the street-side cafe – all while looking effortlessly stylish.
He researched the market to see if such a pair of shorts already existed and decided the level of mass-produced shorts still failed to meet his standards of how luxury swim shorts should look, feel and fit. So he engaged the services of his old friend, the fashion manufacturing expert Henry Butler, and together they travelled across Europe to build the ultimate swim shorts. Working alongside Savile Row tailors, they set about creating a garment that no gentleman has ever had in his wardrobe before.
