Play it smart, and you can wear the same thing all day – to brunch, the beach, dinner, and drinks.

Nice outfit. I’d definitely add a hat or cap to it if it’s an all day outing.
great outfit but honestly being at the beach is all about dressing down and chilling. It’s a vacation. I would have no problem just rocking my swim trunks around town or quickly going home and changing into a dry pair of cargo’s and t-shirt. It’s the beach your suppose to be real chill. You will stand out at most beaches if you dress too well and I find it better to just let go when on vacation.
Eh, I can see where you want to be chill on the sand, but maybe afterwards walk around a pier/shops and or grab a bite to eat and not look like a Bay Watch star.
you should apply to be a wardrobe specialist for TV or movies!
Ive been admiring your selections for quite sometime and they all would work perfectly in film or television; neutral colors, none to hardly any brand labels on outfits, and more importantly, on a budget. That goes very far in the production industry. Just saying man..something to consider.
Keep it up!
What an awesome job, I’ve never even thought of that as a potential career path
Never thought of that, thank you!!
Nice tip on the shorts.
Question, I just bought a pair of Sperry Tops but they cause major blisters on the back of my heal (discomfort)! When I bought them, I actually sized down to eliminate slippage while not wearing socks, but that still didn’t help much. I’ve even purchased band-aids but is that what I should resort to, or is there a secret to wearing them without socks? What should the correct fit be so that I don’t hemorrhage from my heals!
That should go away with time. I’ve had this happen with different shoes, can be pretty rough. No pain no gain!!
Andres, try using a foot powder. Like Gold Bond (non medicated) or baby powder. This will help reduce the friction when your feet get wet/sweaty and possibly avoid the blisters.
My experience is similar to Buffalove and Drew – try to wear them for short spurts until your feet get used to them. I had that issue with my boat shoes, but now I can wear them all day. I have a similar problem with new boots and flip flops.
Wear them with socks and chinos until they’ve shaped to your feet better. Once they have, you can go sockless and you won’t have an issue. Just have to break them in first.
Get them wet and wear them. It will help the leather form to your feet better and more quickly.
Love the hybrid shorts. I have a pair from Quicksilver and they are excellent! I am a 2nd generation waterman and anytime I visit my folks my dad always taks us into paddling out. They dry quickly and don’t get heavy when they are wet. I only wish more companies made them.
Awesomeness Andrew! Shirt and short choices are perfect.
Hybrid shorts = polyester microfiber shorts. Don’t be fooled by sales hype. Just get a pair of microfiber shorts.
Also I’d go with a nylon web belt instead of cotton. The nylon will dry faster to keep up with the shorts. Unless you plan on taking your belt off, too.
