(From TheStar.com)

Thank James Bond for this one.

When Daniel Craig emerged from the Caribbean sea in Casino Royale, his brief trunks not only recalled another iconic Bond swimsuit scene stealer – Ursula Andress emerging from the surf in Dr. No – but it ignited a trend.

What started as a ripple when the movie was released almost two years ago, has now crested as a full-on wave of a trend.

This summer men’s swimsuits have gone short, snug and sleek as the Speedo-style suit makes a comeback.

Style icon David Beckham caused a Speedo sensation on blogs and in the tabloids when he was photographed in a multitude of tight swim briefs while holidaying on Roberto Cavalli’s yacht.

Giorgio Armani, a vision of health and fitness at age 73, was also spotted on holiday sporting a Speedo-like swimsuit, as was Justin Timberlake, playing a French-Canadian lothario in The Love Guru.

Self-confessed clotheshorse, NHL player Sean Avery, who just completed a stint as an intern at Vogue magazine, recently confessed to People magazine, “I’m bringing the European flavour back to America. I’m rocking a straight Speedo all summer.”

Melissa Austria, co-owner of the trendy King St. W. menswear emporium Gotstyle credits the return of this icon to the ’70s revival in menswear. “There is a return of that look of the 1970s guy – tight shirt, chest hair and facial hair,” she notes.

“Guys today are showing a lot more openness to lower V-necks, the open collar shirt, and wearing more jewellery like necklaces and chains.”

Alon Freeman, the menswear market editor at Holt Renfrew, also agrees that men have turned their attention back to the ’70s but says its return is also part of the form fitting look in menswear right now.

“Everything is tightening up,” he says.

“Shorts are getting shorter which has lead to a tighter spandex swim trunk. Even board shorts are getting smaller in proportion and showing more leg.”

But the skimpy men’s bathing suit has been the object of much derision in popular culture thanks to Borat and Will Ferrell, so why is it suddenly anointed cool status?

“Because you’re seeing it now in cool music videos and edgy fashion editorials,” he says.

A recent ad for a Dolce & Gabbana men’s fragrance features British supermodel David Gandy, reclining on a yacht, splayed out in a tight white swimsuit, and two of the fashion world’s hippest photographers – Matthias Vriens and Terry Richardson – have been pushing a ’70s porn aesthetic in their work, Freeman says.

“Now that they have become popular and are working at more mainstream magazines, the look is inserting itself in popular culture.”

And now Bond is going back to briefs.

“Men look at the gadgets and the cars in that movie and then they see Daniel Craig in those snug trunks and it gives them permission – they think, if it’s okay for James Bond …”

But their body better be licensed to thrill.
