Those old-style 2-piece bathing suits for men were pretty hot. On the other hand, the men wearing them in this adorable image also add a whole lot to the sizzle. I'm not sure of the date on this, but guessing ca. late 1920s - early 1930s. Any fashion mavens know better?

Its a very sweet photo. Thanks for sharing it.

They remind me of a couple I saw on the street last night. You can see the laughter and love in their faces.
