Katin Waterman swim trunk


Nancy and Walter Katin got their start making hard-wearing canvas boat covers for the locals of Surfside, California when, one day, a surfer walked into their shop requesting a new kind of short made specifically for surfing. The result was a collection of board shorts that have set the standard for beach days ever since. In fact, the Waterman is the brand's very first style of trunks, first sewn by cofounder Walter Katin himself. They kept all of the old-school details like a 100 percent nylon construction, a boat-rope drawstring closure and Katin's signature K-Man patch.
