That happens at the start of John Huston's WISE BLOOD (1979) =http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0080140/reference 
However, the rest of the story is much more interesting; seems unlikely you would just remember that part,so maybe not it. If it helps, the protagonist (Brad Dourif) is in a military uniform when he gets home.

If it is THE SWIMMER, then the protagonist is wearing swim trunks for the duration of the movie.
In WISE BLOOD, he arrives home at the start of the film. In THE SWIMMER, it's not until the end.

...and if in addition to wearing swim trunks, he travel back home swimming from pool to pool of neighbors...the it definitely is The Swimmer!  For any-one interested, I included it in my recently created list of Key films of Burt Lancaster: http://www.imdb.com/list/ls069380720/
