This march-past swimsuit features Australian national sporting colours and was used at international surf carnivals in the 1960s. Although men's swimwear became increasingly brief during the 1930s, and topless by the end of the decade, the march-past costume retained the covered chest and half skirt of the classic Racerback swimsuit of the late 1920s.
