So… I Paired more or less this look last saturday I spent the day by the Marina with friends. I chose this bright coral Onia Joey t-shirt (better wear a colorful t-shirt just in case you fall overboard) and I paired it with a pair of Calder E5 by Onia also, the print is really minimal and they’re 5″ which is my favorite length when it comes to swim-shorts. Toms, not flip flops this time, you can’t go wrong with a pair of black Toms. The star of this outfit are my Oxford Vaughan sunglasses, the SuperYacht is the essential choice for eye protection against the challenging elements of the great outdoors. I added the Nixon watch and the Frescobol Carioca bag to complete the look online, those two pieces are on my wish list. I really like that watch. You can follow me on instagram clicking here
So… Let’s talk about John Pelican… This young, Spanish brand has a preppy look and feel, that’s one of the things I like about it… Sometimes you just wanna wear a pair of classic swim trunks that are very masculine and very laid back. This could easily go from a beach day, to the lake and to a day laying by the pool at the country club. The cut is very classic, the length is just about right, not too short, not too long, they are roomier than most of my other shorts, they have side pockets and a velcro closure for the back pocket. The fabric is 100% Polyamide, that means they dry super fast and that’s a great quality. Check them out here, you can also follow them on instagram here!
So… Poche Plage is an italian brand that I recently found on instagram. I liked their models but couldn’t really tell much by the pictures, I have a pair now and all I can say is: WOW! Why WOW? They are flattering shorts that fit your body and look good in every possible way, specially in the back for me, they really have a great design, they are short and modern looking, colorful, with great patterns that are whimsical, masculine and attractive to the eye. The fabric is great, the long cord that ties the waist is really something that adds to the design making it more fun and playful. I would say: Get a pair! … and they’re made in Italy, you know is good. Learn more about this brand here, you can also follow them on instagram here and you can follow me clicking here!
“Luxury sunglasses designed for the man who wants to tell his own story, in his own way…” Sunglasses are not just an accessory, a complement they’re a necessity when you live in a sunny place. After years of having gone through different brands and models, trends and styles I have found in Oxford Vaughan the perfect companion for my days in the Caribbean. The Monza, the current model I’m sporting these days, is a beautiful example of what I like in sunglasses, it has a retro futuristic design inspired by F1. When I wear them I dare to dream of that era in the 60s where everything was more glamorous. They bring back those days of luxury. “The Monza are hand-built using aircraft grade titanium frames, plated with 18K yellow gold, tortoiseshell zylonite and polarised, world-renowned ZEISS lens technology, for visual impact in every sense…” That’s how their website describes them, which is pretty accurate and technical, but let me speak from the heart and tell you what it’s to wear them. First off, they’re incredibly light, almost weightless and that’s a quality that, to me, is …
Once again Onia has the perfect color for summer, I have to tell you I’ve seen many flamingos in my life, now I see them in every single summer collection… and I wonder, do i wanna wear a picture of one or better sport the color of one? The answer is obvious. Check The Calder 7.5″, their signature trunk, in Burnt Coral. This short is sophisticated, sporty, perfect for a beach day or lounging by the pool. Make sure you follow Onia on instagram, you can check this pair of shorts here.
Why Cabana Bro? Not only because they’re 100% Hasselhoff approved or because of their retro, colorful design… I am going to tell you why these shorts are a must have in your wardrobe. Everybody owns a T-Shirt that you only wear at home or those sweat pants that are so comfortable that you feel good in them on a lazy sunday. You know the ones that give you a “life is good and relax” feeling that you wear because you feel at ease, free and comfy… Well, that’s the feeling I get when I wear Cabana Bro to the beach. They’re effortlessly cool, they’re colorful without being over the top, they are short but keeping it masculine, a very “Bro cut” we will label it and we all know that a “Bro” is HOT, Bro! That’s what these shorts are, cool shorts for cool dudes. Made of quick-drying polyester they’re perfect for a beach or pool day or gym or even jogging, you can wear them anywhere and because they have a tailored fit to them they look …
