My virtual meandering netted in me discovering this Portuguese brand called Impetus. Never heard of it before but my, oh my, am I in love with their beachwear!
Tops, of course, of loving them is their length -- or lack thereof. They're short and exactly how I want my swim shorts to be. They've got everything from plain, solid colors to checks, to floral, paisley, and geometric patterns. Good thing they have an online store.
Impetus, by the way, is primarily an underwear brand, and they've got some really cool stuff. Apart from briefs and boxers, they also have some colorful undershirts and pajamas.
