Andrew & Cole was founded by Vincent Sidney Cole Stadelhofer and Julian Andrew Schaffner in 2016 in Zurich, Switzerland. After a summer vacation in 2015, Vincent and Julian had the vision of creating their own collection of casual clothing for men. They noticed that the selection of men's swim shorts was limited and that it became very uncomfortable after wearing swim trunks for more than 5 hours. The idea of the two founders was to equip the shorts for men with a lining that creates a new kind of comfort without a net. With the help of lingerie designer Nichole De Carle (London, UK) they created their first Andrew & Cole patterns, which not only became swimwear but all-rounder summer shorts. Designed in Switzerland, made in Italy, but inspired by Andrew & Cole's travels.
Stay smart but comfortably dressed. It's not just the outside, but the inside that matters. This applies to A&C and to many other things in life.
Andrew & Cole specialize in "casual shorts". These shorts were created with a "two-in-one system". Our leisure shorts offer exactly the same level of comfort as everyday shorts, but are also suitable for swimming. Our new, unique recycled fabric made from PET and plastic waste from the oceans is light as a feather and dries in minutes. The pleasant inner fabric is soft and makes our "leisure shorts" unbeatably comfortable. Andrew & Cole also offers summer trousers, T-shirts in linen and cotton and a bamboo terry line. Andrew & Cole is therefore a summer lifestyle brand. With all our products we offer maximum comfort, made with the best sustainable materials and produced with a lot of love.
The casual shorts will change your life during the summer days. Just try them out!
