Chubbies’ popular Everywear Short is just what it sounds like: a super-functional short you can trust to perform in almost any situation — casual hike, golf outing, family picnic, and so on. But this being summer, you might also ask, “How about a day at the beach or an afternoon on the boat?”
If water activities are your thing, then the Lined Everywear Trunk is for you.
This new version of the Everywear Short is ideal for swimming thanks to its compressions mesh boxer liner, which drained and dried in no time when I wore it to the lake. Other notable differences include a snap-button fly and internal/external drawcord that provided a more secure and accessible fit than my regular, elastic-waist swimsuit.
Made from lightweight, four-way stretch fabric, the Lined Everywear Trunk stood up to waterskiing, cannonballs, and a few epic poolside parties with zero wear or tear. The zipper back pocket is big enough for a mobile phone (don’t forget to remove it before jumping in), and there’s a second back pocket as well as two front mesh pockets to hold your other essentials.
Away from the water, I used the 6-inch-inseam shorts for yoga and even slept in them on several occasions — yes, they’re that versatile and comfortable. The Lined Everywear Trunk comes in sizes small through extra extra large in six colors, including The Nooners (pictured). $74.50. chubbiesshorts.com
