Hong Kong has always had an intimate relationship with the sea; local fishermen, distant travellers, and avid sailors have all respected the waters that hug the verdant hills of its coastline.
A true blend of tradition and modernity, Māzŭ pays homage to Hong Kong’s rich maritime history; incorporating traditional colours, local motifs, and unique fabrics to create classic swim shorts for the man who understands quality and comfort.
The craftsmanship and work that goes into our swim shorts is second to none. Our fabrication has an extremely soft-to-touch hand feel with a durability and texture you'd like to find in a luxury product, while our aglets are handcrafted and gilded to resemble a traditional monkey fist knot. The double needle stitching and point d'arrêt finish indicate that the construction of each pair has been done with such effort as to ensure that the shorts not only look great from the outside, but also look and feel great on the inside.
Born in Hong Kong and raised in the UK, Adam Raby was working in advertising and sports apparel when he saw a gap in the Asian market for luxury men’s swimwear and decided to start his own brand.
Raby is passionate about creating a brand that celebrates Hong Kong’s unique relationship with the water. “Hong Kong is called the fragrant harbour; it’s an island and a trading hub. We have distinctive boats with eye-catching sails on our seas and the brand fits so nicely with our city”.
Passionate about the sea, Raby is also adamant that we give back to the ocean, considering it accounts for 71 percent of the earth’s surface. “Hong Kong beaches need a serious cleanup. I always knew I wanted to help the oceans, and our future designs will partner with local maritime charities to give back to our community.”
