Personal endorsement time: I recently got a pair of these A Day’s March Swim Trunks, and they’re fucking great. Designed in Sweden. Made in Portugal. Really nice matte polyester fabric. Comfortable mesh liner. Great fit (as long as you don’t mind showing a little thigh). And only $50. They also come in a bunch of really nice colors. So if you need trunks, and you like your swimwear on the shorter side, I highly recommend giving these a go.
