We use SwimOutlet.com a lot. This is in no way an advertisement for them, and may end up being the opposite. They have a "grab bag" deal that's always pretty cheap for swimsuits: you pick the brand and "cut" of suit, but you DON'T get to pick the pattern, and you get whatever they send. It's cheap. For men's "jammer" length suits, you can get Sporti brand for $12, Nike for $19, and TYR for $24. (Those are the prices at this moment, but they have different deals all the time.)
I've had good luck in the past. Usually, it's something like a black suit with a colored panel on the side: I've had a pair that's had a green pattern, and a pair that's had a purple pattern on the side. No biggie.
I ordered 4 recently that just came in the mail. A TYR, a Nike, and 2 Sportis. It's always a little like Christmas when opening the box:
First pair: the TYR. Dark with some light blue accents. Nice.
Second pair: a patriotic pair of Nikes. Also not bad. (Originally a $52 suit, for $19!)
OK, but my final Sporti suit can't be any worse, right?...
Shit. TWO of those.
As if they weren't ugly enough, the "penis pouch" inside is bright purple. Awesome.
And if you're interested, try your luck with a "grab bag" purchase at SwimOutlet.com. Let me know what you get!
p.s. My wife reminded me of another awesome/horrible suit that her sister got from SwimOutlet 8 years ago. Here's her post with the horrible details. Swim Outlet actually saw that post and sent my wife and her sister each a free suit. Nice.
