Not many trends have become more conservative over the past 100 years. Men's swimwear, however, is an exception to that rule.
In what seems like the 100th variation of a "100 Years Of" video, Mode Studios has taken on a century's worth of men's swimsuits. While the video kicks off modestly in 1915 with what can only be described today as a romper, things heat up as early as 1935 with a pair of belted briefs.
Swim trunks as we know them today make a first appearance in the '80s, followed by the undoubtedly unsexy board short trend of the '90s and the graphic-printed, slightly more form-fitting trunks we know and love today.
With the tendency fashion has to repeat itself, here's hoping those rad, printed briefs from the 1960s make a comeback soon.
Check out the video above.
