With Spring Break upon us and Memorial Day and summer round the corner we were stoked to see some of our favorite gear amongst Selectism’s “10 Wet Short”. Onia‘s Calder Short and Lightning Bolt‘s boardshort were mentioned. If those don’t suffice we also have Sundek and Olasul as well. Pair any of these trunks with a great graphic t, tank, your favorite shades and Havaianas and you’re ready to jet to the beach or poolside.
There are some staples every guy’s wardrobe should not be without. One is the iconic polo shirt. Launched at Wimbledon in 1952, the Fred Perry polo shirt was an immediate success, known for its laurel logo and adopted as part of the uniform of the punks and mods and today’s hipsters worldwide. We like to stick to our laurels and note that some celebs like and Stephen Moyer and Zac Efron are fans too. Offered in solid or the timeless twin tipped polo in a never ending combination of colors, pair them with jeans, khakis or your favorite boardshort, havaianas and shades for afternoon cocktails by the pool.
Persol comes from “per il sole” meaning “for the sun”, highlighting these iconic shades’ function of protection against the sun’s rays. For nearly 100 years Persol has been providing great style and function in eyewear. One of the brand’s early fans was Steve McQueen, known as an everlasting men’s style icon. We love the retro styling of the PO0649 and the collapsible quality of the PO0714 favored by McQueen. If that’s not enough check out many of Hollywood’s stars sporting them too; or you may say modern day icons wearing icons.
GQ’s obsessed and so are we. Need new gear for the beach? Lightning Bolt offers great swim trunks and sick graphic tees and tanks emblazoned with the bolt and we’ve got a great stash to choose from. Pair ‘em with your favorite jeans, havaianas, some Burkman Bros. bracelets and killer shades and you’re good to go!
