I’ve known the brand, The Resort Co, for over a year before I first wrote to them. We always had a mutual connection between our brands. When we finally contacted each other about a potential collaboration, they surprised me with an incredible customer experience. I have to note that their customer service and organization are top-notch.
Resort Co – Classic Swim Shorts Ivy Green
The shorts I chose were the Ivy Green classic shorts. I was looking for a plain colored pair of shorts that could be stylish both inside and outside of the water. When I received the shorts, I paired them with a white polo – they matched perfectly. It is the kind of attire that is perfect for your vacation. Pair them with flip-flops or white sneakers, and you will be ready to discover new cities this summer.
First impressions: perfect color, a solid, premium weight, great, well-adjustable size, high-quality details due to the metallic end of the tightening straps, and a subtle logo that doesn’t shout – “hey look at me, I am wearing XY brand”.
I’d like to say that the shorts mentioned in the review were provided as a PR gift by The Resort Co. However, it’s important to note that they haven’t instructed me to talk about any particular details about the shorts or their products.
They’ve simply conveyed their interest in receiving an unbiased review due to their strong confidence in the quality of their products. Keeping that in mind, let’s proceed with the review.
Materials and Design
The clean-lined cut of these swim shorts makes them a great option for transitioning from the pool to the bar. They are cut from a sleek, quick-drying shell and equipped with an elastic waistband and extra soft mesh lining.
The shorts were handcrafted in Trofa, Portugal, and made of upcycled fabrics, such as 100% Newlife Yarns recycled PES. The shorts feature an elastic drawstring waist that allows for comfortable adjustments. It also has a stylish single button back pocket which is all functional, and a subtle, modern mid-length fit that is not too showy yet still has a modern feel.
What is The Resort Co?
If this is the first time you’ve heard about them, The Resort Co is a Swedish clothing brand founded in 2019 with the sole mission of crafting the perfect vacation wardrobe, emphasizing high quality, ethical production, and the use of the best and most sustainable materials.
The artisan principles and high-quality mindset transfer the brand. The design is inspired by Scandinavian aesthetics and the notion of a never-ending Summer. The idea is to design sustainable resort wear that lasts season after season.
They handpicked the best materials and producers in Europe – all of their products are handcrafted by skilled artisans working in small family-owned factories dotted around Italy, Spain, and Portugal.
They make timeless, high-quality products from materials that are sourced from the finest makers in Western Europe.
The parts that go into a The Resort Co product don’t travel far during its manufacturing process as their factories and distributors are located in the same region, meaning a swift shipping experience and a minimal environmental footprint.
At Midway Gentleman, we take climate change as our responsibility, and that’s why we focus on working with environment-friendly businesses. The Resort Co is no exception to that.
The shorts I received are made from upcycled plastic. They are proud registered members and supporters of the Seaqual Initiative®. Most of their swim shorts are produced in exclusive Seaqual Initiative® fabrics, an initiative to clean up the oceans and transform marine litter into premium polyester.
The shipping was super fast and transparent. It was obvious from the first seconds. They constantly kept me updated, so I was always up to date on where my product was. The time of the shipping was mind-blowing for me, especially nowadays when supply chains are in a difficult position.
The order was set on the second of May, and it was in my yard two days later. That is a rather great achievement to ship a product from Sweden to Hungary in two days. Most of the packages in Hungary don’t arrive this fast. Oh, and probably the best thing about shipping, The Resort Co. offers free international shipping to all customers.
Why Resort Co Products are Better
I’ve had many swim shorts in lower and high price ranges that don’t use the same quality materials. The Resort Co. has had an excellent customer experience from the first time it opened the package to the first dive in the sea. It is a pair of shorts that you can proudly wear with a Polo shirt and then go for a swim at the local beach.
Pair it with their signature flip-flops and a Polo, and your summer vacation outfit is ready.
They are Offering More Than Just Swim Shorts
As mentioned before, The Resor Co’s goal is to make the highest quality and most sustainable vacation clothing on the market. They are offering all kinds of summer attire, from sunglasses to polo shirts and even flip-flops. Make sure to check out their store to find a piece for your taste.
Finally, I am more than happy with my shorts and proudly recommend them to anyone looking for a new pair of swim shorts for this summer. If you aren’t looking for swimwear at the moment – make sure to check out their store anyway.
They are selling polos, shirts, flip-flops, and a wide range of summer accessories and attire. If you are someone who appreciates quality and sustainable materials, then The Resort Co is the way to go.
