Orlebar Brown “Summer-Sault” George Caddy Swim Shorts

Paying homage to the late Australian photographer George Caddy, Orlebar Brown releases an Australia-exclusive pair of shorts that feature a rare and almost-lost photograph — discovered a quarter century after the passing of Caddy. Known for capturing young men and women as they engaged in ‘Beachobatics’ — a popular pre-war activity that involved flipping, balancing and other feats of agility — Caddy’s works date back to the early ’30s and stand as the only known record in documenting such a sport. Digitally printed on Orlebar Brown’s classic BULLDOG silhouette, the Summer-Sault shorts are made from European-sourced fabric and are stylish enough for everyday wear yet perfect for swimming in. Priced at $295 USD, the Summer-Sault can be found now in limited quantities at Harrolds Australia and on Orlebar Brown’s AU online store.
