Speedo Thong Tribute
When the men’s Speedo thong came out I thought this could be a game changer for making thongs more popular. You’d think if a big brand like Speedo was offering them that it would help their popularity. Fast forward a few years and now they’re discontinued and seems to be no change in popularity for a swim thong or swim brief for guys. I am a little surprised they didn’t try a women’s swim thong first, but kudos to them for offering us guys one.
I did buy one and thought with it branded with the Speedo logo that it would make it okay to wear. Well, the thinking was when I made it to the stage to try thonging at the beach. My theory was if you were questioned you could say, “Hey, it’s a Speedo. See the logo on the back.” Of course I haven’t got to the point of thonging at the beach let alone a swim brief regularly, so I never got to try that response. Anyone else think this way?
Since it doesn’t seem I’ll be thonging at the beach any time soon, I decided it was time to give up on that theory. I sold it recently, so will never get to use that line. I did think the front was a little on the wide side and bulky. Was built like a swim brief in the front, which is fine for their briefs; not a thong. I did really like the cut of the back and it was very comfortable to wear, but still decide it was time for us to part ways. Hopefully my Speedo thong is being enjoyed and getting the use it deserves. I did wear it a few times for sunning in the yard, but not enough to stay in the drawer. I still have a HOM thong if I ever decide to hit the beach in a thong and it is a cut I like a lot better.
