Funky Trunks In October 2002 the first ever pair of Funky Trunks were designed, stitched together and then launched unceremoniously at a suburban Melbourne pool to a chorus of laughter and cheers possibly tinged with a hint of sarcasm. It was hardly the springboard for a budding swimwear label but as the jokes died, the Australian male inclined to swim laps began to question the appeal of exercising in tight briefs. It was a question that reverberated around the swimming pools of Australia. Funky Trunks were adopted by state, national, Olympic swimmers and even by our dads to put comfort and style back into swimming. Eight years on, Funky Trunks has come to symbolise the original reinvention of the men’s swimwear market. Funky Trunks paves the way for the continued advancement of men’s swimwear design with innovative styling and a continuous, fresh supply of vibrant colours and prints. Funky Trunks are the reason why original is best.
