Sri Panwa, Thailand | competition travel prizeCalling wannabe superheroes everywhere: do you need to (a) designing your own superhero swim shorts; (b) indulge in a little high-speed globetrotting;  and (c) save the planet, all at the same time? Excellent: we can help.

Orlebar Brown, the beachwear brand worn by hipsters everywhere (and not-so-hipster-but-practical men who eschew flappy boardshorts and oversnug speedos) is celebrating its fifth anniversary this year with a limited line of shorts inspired by the Getty Images archives, a bumper photo competition, and a worthy cause: 10% of all sales will go directly to the very worthy Blue Marine Foundation, a charity dedicated to creating and protecting  marine reserves worldwide. You can read more about their fantastic work in our interview with Blue co-founder Chris Gorell Barnes in the next few days…

Orlebar Brown trunks | 'Jamaica'MR SMITH’S STYLE TIP
Pick up the super-hot ‘Jamaica’ or ‘Splash’ shorts – perfect for those about to jet off to Ian Fleming hangout Goldeneye, perhaps, or The Standard Miami. They won’t look bad on a sunny day in Cornwall, either… Bulldog swimshorts, £195, Orlebar Brown.

Beat my shorts! To enter the competition, simply send a travel photo you’ve taken yourself that encapsulates the ‘OB way of life’ (read: stylish, crisp, touch of vintage, artsy edit). The winner not only gets their image printed onto a bespoke pair of OB trunks, but they’ll be packing their trunks (literally) for a tropical Thailand escape to Smith-favourite Sri Panwa resort, with return Etihad flights.
