    This shot is sooo cool. And I totally understand you. Mens swimsuits these days range only from ugh to yuk.

    Happy weekend to everyone.

    I love old school swim too! As a girl, I know this seems strange because stretchy suits are an upgrade, but I wish that I could find a cotton bikini like I see Brigitte Bardot wear in her movies. The wrinkles in the cotton and the way it sets seems so much sexier to me!

    Great shot! The fun thing to me is that the others swimmers they didn't even look at the jumper. I suppose it's so normal for him…

    Regards from Barcelona!

    Sooo much better than budgie smugglers! These swimsuits actually flatter the male body. Fabulous shot!

    Wonderful photo. This series makes me want to drag out my old film camera…and then travel back in time 50 or 60 years.

    This style of swimsuit is very common now in Brasil. Great photo. they're called a "sunga" or something similar. Anyone know?

    Compositionally(the arc of the diver juxtaposing the mountain background) exemplifies Henri Cartier-Bresson's "the decisive moment".

    i'm digging the composition of this photo, a lot!
    really nice division of space vertically and horizontally.
    and hey, the subjects are not too shabby either.

    Simply fantastic!
    There's no other way of putting it.
    The magic of vintage photos is a kind that can never be recreated.

    Beautiful shot! Those guys are in fantastic shape.

    Now imagine how attractive those suits would be on the average over-weight guy?

    This shot brought such a smile to my face. The composition, the contrast of relaxed bodies to one in flight, muscles taut. Wonderful!!!!

    The sad part is the only closest way to recreate those swimsuits is by wearing running shorts which I like to do at pools. So much more masculine then baggy shorts.

    Really good picture this! I like the vintage style, just so simple.
