Adam Brown - Orlebar Brown

Adam Brown is the founder of Orlebar Brown.

He was inspired to create the brand while on holiday when he realised that what he wanted to wear, a tailored short you would swim in, didn’t exist. 

Two years later, Orlebar Brown was born and within a decade it has grown into a truly global business that steered the zeitgeist towards tailored swimwear.  

Brown has worked in the private sector fundraising and also as a portrait photographer for a number of editorial and corporate clients. He lives in West London with his partner and two dogs Rudi and Arthur.
