about us


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 to create their own casualwear collection for men. They noticed that the choice of men's swim shorts was limited and that after wearing a swim trunk for more than 5 hours, it became very uncomfortable. The idea of ​​the two founders was to equip men's shorts 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 pattern, which not only became swimming trunks, but all-rounder summer shorts.

Designed in Switzerland, made in Italy but inspired by the travels of Andrew & Cole.

"For the sunny days in life!"

(Vincent & Julian)


Stay smart but comfortable dressed.

It's not just the outside, it's the inside that counts. This applies to A&C and also 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 comfort as everyday shorts, but are also suitable for swimming. Our new, unique Recycled fabric made from PET and ocean plastic waste is as 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. Thus, Andrew & Cole is considered a summer lifestyle brand. With all our products we offer maximum comfort, made with the best sustainable materials and with a lot of love.

The leisure shorts will change your life during the summer days.

Just try them!

We are proud to make all our swim shorts in Italy!
