You see before you the original woolen swimming trunks. They lurk in a cupboard in the house and occasionally I threaten to wear them.
You really need those draw strings on these, that wool is going to be jolly heavy when you come out of the water.
Made by Admiralty they boast go faster stripes, cotton gusset (the chaffing would be unbearable otherwise), draw strings, and a badge of a woman riding a flying fish. Pure class. You can't beat wet wool against the skin.
Just goes to show our forefathers were much tougher than us.
