'100 Years of Men's Swimwear' is a three-minute video by Mode.com. In this short clip, viewers are exposed to the many ways male swimwear has evolved throughout the years.

While the change in men's swimwear has not been as exaggerated as styles for women, 100 Years of Men's Swimwear does shed light on certain styles that have been long forgotten or simply unheard of. The video begins in the year 1915 where men wore one-piece swimwear made of a knitted material to appear bulkier. Moving forward throughout the century, viewers can pinpoint exactly which era men were allowed to go topless and when waterproof material was first introduced.

It's a lot of years to go through, but 100 Years of Men's Swimwear perfectly recalls the hottest swimsuit styles in a surprisingly short amount of time.
