Clifton Swim Short


The Clifton is our mid length classic swim short. The first product we made at Leo Joseph and still a house favourite. Made from our signature quick drying sustainable fabric and the finest custom hardware it brings both comfort and style.


Clifton is one of Cape Town's most scenic and well known set of beaches. The beaches are named 1 to 4 with each being separated only by natural rock outcrops into the ocean. A fitting place to name our original, founding swim short after.
