YG Celebrates Release of Summer Capsule

LOS ANGELES — “Rats Die Slow” reads the back of one 4Hunnid T-shirt.
The message needs no explanation rapper YG (né Keenon Daequan RayJackson) said about one of the pieces from his brand 4Hunnid’s summer capsule. The recently released collection of mostly T-shirts and a pair of basketball shorts is a nod to summer and beautiful women, he went on to say as he described the items.
“It’s really just representing our lifestyle during the summer,” he said. “When summer hits, a lot of people do a lot of things and they plan a lot of trips. I wanted to make a capsule based around pretty females.”
Most of the pieces bear phrases the music artist said represent the lifestyle of “having a good time, being real, being authentic, enjoying yourself, chasing your dream and getting your money.” The capsule debuted at an event Thursday evening that included a gallery-like installation of photos from the capsule’s look book imagery.
4Hunnid, also the name of YG’s record label under Interscope, started in early 2016. It largely won a following as artist merchandise but that changed last year with the introduction of a cut-and-sew collection that made its debut at a star-studded fashion show that drew

Lil Wayne wasn’t serious, y’all. It turns out Tunechi won’t be bailing on his current summer tour with Blink-182 after all.

Late last week, Weezy left that stage after performing just four or so songs, while also noting he wasn’t sure if he’d be continuing the tour due to small crowd sizes not being his swag. His words, not ours,

However, Weezy took to Twitter to explain that he was going to thug it out and finish the tour.

“Yesterday was krazy!,” he tweeted on Friday, July 12. “But I want all my fans to know I won’t be quitting this tour! I’m having too much fun with my bros blink-182. Bangor,ME See you tomorrow!

Hey, the show must go on. Also, the direct deposit ain’t hittin’ if you don’t hit the stage, too.

Summer of Change

Elena Aitken

Genre: Contemporary

Publish Date: February 9, 2014

Publisher: Ink Blot Communications

Seller: Elena Aitken


With the Springs resort set to open in mere weeks, Trent Harrison needs to stay focused and see to every detail. The last thing he needs is a complication, even one that comes in the form of sexy bar owner, Samantha Burke. Samantha loves her quiet close-knit community of Cedar Springs, just the way it is. The addition of a fancy new resort as well as its arrogant owner, and the change they're both sure to bring, is certainly not welcome. With Trent pushing his way into her town, and her life, Samantha's resistance to him wavers in the face of the passion and heat they share. Change is inevitable, but can either of them drop their guard long enough to accept it when there's so much on the line?  Like all my books, Summer of Change can be read and enjoyed as a stand alone novel, but are even more enjoyable when you read them as a series. Catch up with your favorite characters with the rest of the books! THE SPRINGS:  Book 1- Summer of Change (Trent and Samantha)  Book 2 – Falling Into Forever (Rhys and Kari)  Book 3 – Winter's Burn (Slade and Beth)  Book 4 – Midnight Springs (Jax and Bria)  Second Glances (A Springs Novella)

Zappos Has Awesome Summer Slip-ons, Slides, Sandals, and Sneakers On Sale

Zappos is renowned for having an awesome selection of boots and dress shoes, but its wide variety of sneakers and summer kicks don’t get nearly as much love. And that’s a shame. Zappos is a fantastic destination to get all your summer gear, from shirts and shorts to sandals and flip-flops. And it’s almost always cheaper than retail. So if you can find gear on sale at Zappos? That means it’s WAY less than you’d pay at the shoe store.

And these aren’t knock-offs like you find at some of the big box stores. Zappos doesn’t rip brands off, or steal their designs. Zappos gets great deals on overstock from manufacturers and retailers, then spins that savings back around to you. So you can get the same great products you saw in the store just a couple of months prior for a fraction of the price.

Does Zappos Sell More Than Shoes?

Our Favorite Sandals and Flip-Flops for Summer

Summer is the time when dressed-down, casual looks become stylish. Chinos, short sleeves, and linen are back, and it’s acceptable to finish off the look with your favorite open-toed shoes. Using sandals and flip flops can give your summer outfits a laid-back feel, plus they can be comfortable and stylish too.

“A lot of guys are self-conscious about sandals, but if you like them, you should wear them — guys need to have a look that they like,” menswear icon Sid Mashburn says. “Function is more important than fashion, and sandals are just good summer shoes. But it can be surprising how cool they are, how chic they are, and how elegant they are. They hit all the buttons.”

 

Here are some of the best sandals and flip-flops for summer, whether you’re going out for a day on the lake or a night out on the town.

Reef Draftsmen

Here’s your perfect party sandal. Reef outfitted their leather Draftsman sandal with a bottle opener in the footbed so you can pop open your brew anywhere, anytime. The low-profile design comes in two rich colors (we’re fans of the chocolate leather). And just because they look simple, doesn’t mean they aren’t well designed. An EVA midsole and arch support cushion your foot and keep you comfortable no matter where you’re headed. 

[$ 60; reef.com]


Hari Mari Dunes II

Thanks to their savvy design, Hari Mari’s flip-flops will have you ready for the sand dunes, the campsite, a hike through a National Park, or a day out on the water. This pair comes with non-scuffing rubber outsoles, memory foam toe-post grips to keep the blisters away, and a beveled sole edge that helps prevent tripping. Plus, Hari Mari donates one percent of the purchase price to help kids with pediatric cancer.

[$ 50; harimari.com]

Hurley Lunar

These flops combine low-key styling with serious comfort. They’re contoured to match the shape of your foot and made with Nike’s soft and springy Lunarlon foam, so you can expect a good fit and a soft step-in feel. Plus, the unique grooved gum outsole prevents slips and looks great, too.

[$ 55; nike.com]

Bogs Dylan Sandal

It wasn’t until recently that Oregon-based Bogs, which makes insulated boots for farmers, started making sandals. The Dylan Sandal speaks to that hardworking everyman heritage by packing value into a pair of affordable flip-flops. A Rebound rubber strap and footbed offer all-day support, and a tacky outsole grips wet terrain.

[from $ 15; amazon.com]


Freewaters Basecamp

These are the ultimate cushy campsite-ready sandals. The Basecap features a memory foam version of Therm-a-Rest cushioning (through a partnership with the sleeping-pad maker), giving a whole new meaning to the word “footbed.” Additionally, the padded strap is made of vegan leather and is water friendly—just like the Freewaters company, which funds clean water projects around the world by donating a portion from each of their sales.

[$ 45; freewaters.com]


Rainbow Single-Layer Classic

The Rainbow Single-Layer Classic flip-flop features arch support, a non-slip bottom, and double stitched straps for durability. The finished leather, along with a polished top sole, makes for a more dressed-up look than other sandals can muster.

[$ 54; rainbowsandals.com]


Havaianas Power Flip Flops

Havaianas is practically synonymous with the word with “flip-flops.” The Havaianas Power Sandal design, however, moves away from the classic thong: Its sole has ergonomic grooves that align with the pressure points of the foot for cushion-like comfort and flexibility. But the perforated matte strap and sporty style keep it from looking too soft. 

[$ 36; zappos.com]

Zappos

Adidas Adilette Slide

When it comes to slides, there’s nothing more iconic than the Adilette. First introduced in the ’70s, these simple sandals are still going strong today, although they’ve moved beyond their original purpose as post-match shower shoes for soccer players and morphed into poolside essentials. Quick-drying and available in a bunch of bold colors, they’re a great pick for your next tropical vacation.

Raf Simons by Adidas RF Micro Adilette Sport Slide

Belgian designer Raf Simons creates his own spin on the classic Adilette slide with a mashup of vintage-inspired details, color-blocking, and metallic accents.

Nike Benassi Slide

Prefer the swoosh over the stripes? Try Nike’s Benassi slide. It has a Phylon foam midsole for shock absorption and comes in several striking colorways to match any style.

[$ 25; nike.com]

Astral Filipe

The Filipe earns high marks for versatility. Astral Designs made it very water friendly, with durable outsoles that latch onto wet rocks and patches of rubber on the footbed that help keep your foot glued down even when soaked. Thinking of hitting the trail? Attach the accessory strap to get a lockdown fit around your heel.

[$ 75; astraldesigns.com]


Birkenstock Arizona Sandal

The classic Birkenstock Arizona sandal has been the outdoorsman’s go-to for generations, and for good reason. Its high-quality construction includes a molded footbed, a deep heel cup, and durable materials like leather and reinforced cork—and it’s available in waterproof versions, too.

[$ 135; birkenstock.com]

Chacos Z/2 Classic

Hikers favor Chacos, and it’s not hard to see why. The durable design of this sandal is rugged enough to protect your toes out on the trail while still managing to pull off a low-maintenance and minimalistic look. Now the decades-old Z sandal has been updated to the Z/2, which is composed of only eight parts but allows for a custom fit thanks to the toe loop, adjustable straps, and molded podiatrist-certified footbed. Added bonus: The sandals have an antimicrobial treatment that keeps away stink.

New Balance PureAlign Recharge

Comfort is key when it comes to a pair of sandals, and New Balance’s PureAlign Recharge makes sure your puppies are comfortable for a day of exploring. Featuring a contoured footbed, arch support, a durable outsole and synthetic upper with mesh liner, your feet are in for a real treat.

Brooks Brothers Leather Criss-Cross Sandal

The minimalistic construction and leather design is comparable to top-of-the-line brands, such as Prada and Gucci, but it won’t break the bank. Calfskin leather creates a trendy style that is subdued enough for everyday wear, and the tonal stitching offers a nice luxurious touch.

Teva Original Universal

Tevas are some of the most trail-ready sandals you can buy, thanks to their hook and loop closures, universal strapping system, and ultra-durable rubber outsole. But with their rich colors and supple suede footbed, you can be sure-footed between routes on the crag and head straight to the bar for drinks afterward without bringing a change of shoes.

Outerknown’s Merino Swim Trunks Are Ready for a Summer on the Water

When you think of Merino wool, you probably imagine a drawer full of warm winter clothing, or maybe a pair of comfy hiking socks. You likely don’t think about summer wear, especially not a pair of swim trunks. But Outerknown, the outdoor apparel brand founded by pro surfer Kelly Slater, is changing the way we think about wool with the new Woolaroo trunks, released earlier this month.


Swimming Pigs, Shark Diving, and Daiquiris on Repeat: The 4-Day Weekend in the Bahamas

 

We got our hands on a pair while touring Kelly Slater’s Surf Ranch, and we’re here to tell you it’s time to leave the itchy stereotypes about wool behind. These 100 percent Merino wool trunks feel great, are super tough, and they’re eco-friendly, too. If you’re in the market for a pair of hard-working trunks that can stand up to a summer’s worth of surfing, swimming, and paddling, the it’s worth considering the Woolaroo.

What It Is: 

The Woolaroo is a new swim trunk from Outerknown, and the company claims it’s the first-ever trunk made completely from Australian Merino wool (the fiber is sourced in collaboration with The Woolmark Company). It’s a nod to the swim trunks from the early days of surfing, which were made from a heavy-duty twill fabric, but it’s also a clear expression of the brand’s commitment to sustainability. Merino wool is an all-natural, renewable, and biodegradable fiber, unlike the synthetic fabrics used in many other swim trunks.


Surfer Kai Lenny on the World Surf League’s New Ocean Conservation and Environmental Initiatives

Why We Like It:

Finding swim trunks that are comfortable, stylish, and fit well is no easy task, but the Woolaroo gets high marks in all three categories. The pre-stretched wool fabric is light but tough, and the natural benefits of the fiber really shine. It’s breathable and odor-resistant without any synthetic finishes or additives, and wool’s moisture-wicking properties are also evident: Even when soaking wet, water beads up and rolls off the shorts easily. The Woolaroo strikes a good balance between utility and style as well. They hit just above the knee and look trim enough to wear off the beach, but there’s enough give through the thigh that they won’t interfere with swimming, and the zipper fly and drawstring provide a secure fit—you won’t have to worry about these slipping off in heavy surf. Of course, it’s also a definite plus to wear swim trunks that won’t contribute to the plastic that’s choking our oceans.

Nitpick:

The Merino fabric of the Woolaroo is a far cry from your scratchy Christmas sweater, but it’s worth noting that these shorts do have a slightly coarse texture compared to synthetic fabrics. As for storage, the Woolaroo comes with a secure zippered back pocket, but on land, some might miss having side pockets to carry keys and other essentials. Watermen who need a light and lean pair of trunks likely won’t mind the lack of pockets, though.

The Best Performance Briefs to Beat the Heat This Summer

A good pair of performance briefs should go unnoticed. That’s the ironic, telltale sign of a stellar piece of apparel: You forget you’re wearing it. Meanwhile, a bad pair will scrunch, chafe, and require some awkward lunging or a not-so-discrete hand down your pants to adjust.


We Found the World’s Most Comfortable Underwear

To keep your most sensitive area as dry and comfortable as possible, we’ve tested some of the top options on the market. Here are the best six performance briefs to wear whether you’re training or just going about your everyday life. They’ll withstand stifling heat and swampy humidity without breaking a sweat—even if you do.

1. icebreaker Cool-Lite Anatomica Zone Boxers

As the name suggests, icebreaker wants to keep you cool. To do so, they use a propriety blend of two materials in their boxers, merino wool and TENCEL. Combined with an eyelet for ventilation, flatlock seams that prevent chafing, and odor-resistant fabrics, these briefs beat the heat and any accompanying smells.

[$ 55; icebreaker.com]

2. lululemon License to Train Boxer

Even during a workout of squat cleans and handstand walks, these boxers stayed in place. The four-way stretch was forgiving enough to accommodate movements, while light compression provided targeted support. They’re also ultra-lightweight, so you’ll barely notice them underneath your shorts.

[$ 38; lululemon.com]

3. Reebok Performance Briefs

These are a fantastic low-cost option. The material isn’t as advanced as the others, but it still does everything you’d like it to do—mainly, hug your thighs while not being too constricting. In my experience, the waist runs a little large, so consider ordering a size down to get a comfortably snug fit.

[3 pack for $ 30; reebok.com]

4. Ten Thousand Training Boxer

Ten Thousand is a New York City-based startup. At its inception, the team (admirably) chose to specialize in just a few items of workout apparel—emphasizing quality. And let us tell you: They’re doing a damn good job. This training boxer wicks away sweat and inhibits the growth of bacteria. Plus, it comes with a side pocket and a waistband that you’ll barely notice.

[$ 32; tenthousand.cc]

5. Under Armour RUSH Compression

Strap your spacesuit on, because we’re going to the future. In addition to all the features you’d expect from performance underwear, these boast Under Armour’s new RUSH technology. It uses mineral-infused fabric to absorb energy created by your body during workout, then reflects that energy back into your muscles. For more info, check out this video.

6. 185 ROCK‘N‘WOOL Boxer by Ortovox

If you like to take your workouts into the great outdoors, rather than the CrossFit box, these are the boxers for you. Made from ultra-thin wool, they’re specifically designed for the temperature fluctuations that come with sweating outdoors. The company also sources from ethically and ecologically sound farmers

Todd Snyder x Liberty London Has the Best Collaboration of the Summer

Bright, busy, and colorful prints are back this summer. Sinuous, floriferous prints and patterns have come around again, daring men to once again embrace the breezy, flowery blouse as the go-to summer shirt. And thanks to Todd Snyder’s new Liberty Prints collection, you can be among the most sinuous and floriferous at your summer gathering.

Okay, enough of the flowery language. We love floral prints, and are firm in our belief that it takes a confident man to wear them without irony. Of course, bright colors and natural patterns are the ideal summer palette. It’s particularly suited for backyard parties and dockside barbecues. If you think you’re making a bold statement by wearing a flowery shirt, you’re absolutely right. If you believe you’re an original, well, Oscar Wilde might beg to differ.

What’s the History of Liberty London?

Since 1875, Liberty London has been renowned for its signature floral patterns. From the outset, its designs were used in everything from wallpaper to clothing, from eyeglass cases to furnishings. The store’s founder Arthur Liberty sought to collect and curate the finest, most exotic goods from around the world.

From the outset, Liberty’s floral motifs embodied a quintessential Englishness. The company was both an advocate and beneficiary of the Art Nouveau movement. In the 1960s Liberty successfully rebranded its trademark designs into Swinging Sixties-cool, tinged by nostalgia. Today, its familiar-yet-exotic archive of over 45,000 vintage floral designs have been captivating artistic shoppers for nearly 150 years.

“Familiar-yet-exotic” perfectly captures the spirit of Todd Snyder’s legendary collabs. Todd has never hesitated in reaching out to other designers and labels to incorporate nostalgia into modern design. And his Todd Snyder x Liberty London Collection is no exception, with camp collar shirts and shorts that showcase this irresistible handiwork.

It’s not a huge selection, with just three prints in both shirts and shorts. But the Todd Snyder x Liberty London Collection is guaranteed to make a splash at any summer gathering—as long as you wear it with confidence, of course.

Camp Collar Tropical Print in Blue

Fun yet functional, this camp collar shirt is perfect for long days at the shore. 100 percent cotton, it’s got a straight hem and a slim, contemporary fit. We love the versatility of this colorway.

The matching 7-inch Warm Up Shorts ($ 168) are made of gaberdine with a touch of stretch. for comfort and mobility.

Camp Collar Leaves Print Shirt in Pink

A warm weather favorite reinvented. Fun yet functional, this casually refined style has a trim modern fit and versatile convertible collar that’s ready for work or play. Constructed with a vented straight hem and a back locker loop for wrinkle-free hanging, it’s 100 percent cotton.

The matching shorts ($ 168) are made of stretch gaberdine and have a drawstring waist.

Slip On These New Allbirds Summer Colorways Before They’re All Gone

News flash! Allbirds just dropped four new summer colors. If you haven’t yet sunk your feet into the soft, breathable glory that is all-wool Allbirds, here’s a rare opportunity to do so while still being a trendsetter. If you’re already an Allbirds advocate, then this is your chance to stand out from the flock.

The Shoreline Collection features four new coastal-inspired colorways that are ideal for summertime. And they’re in styles that are awesome for warm weather fun. They cost the same as standard Allbirds—but these Limited Edition colorways will fly off the shelves. So if you’re on the fence, you’d better hop on over it, and quick.

 

Tide Pool

tree skippers
Allbirds

This fresh aqua colorway is reminiscent of cool blue pool water, and makes us want to signal for the cabana boy to bring us another mimosa. It’s available in Allbirds’ original Wool Runner and high-topped Tree Topper, and also in the casual Tree Skipper ($ 95, above). It’s a laced summer slip-on, perfect for kicking off and relaxing in the chaise.

 

Sunkissed

tree runner
Allbirds

Hot August nights and slow summer sunsets call for a smoldering colorway, and the Sunkissed delivers. It’s available in four Allbirds styles, including Wool Runners, Tree Skippers, Tree Toppers, and the breathable Tree Runners ($ 95, above). You can get it with a matching sole, but we rather like the contrast of the light grey here.

 

Dolphin

wool runner
Allbirds

Just because the sun is bright and hot doesn’t mean your shoes have to be. Stay cool, calm, and collected in this subdued, classy colorway. It’s only available in Allbirds’ original Wool Runner style ($ 95, above), and only with the color-matched sole. But don’t let the fabric scare you; 100 percent natural Merino stays cool when it’s hot, and warm when it’s cool. And it’s totally suited for year-round wear—even to the office.

 

Whitecap

tree lounger
Allbirds

This icy blue can chill the vibe at any summer gathering. It’s also available with the summer active Tree Runner sneaker ($ 95, shown at top), but we’ll take it paired with Allbirds also-chill, lace-less summer Tree Loungers slip-ons ($ 95, above). Perfect for when you have a drink in your hand and your toes in the sand, just like Diamond Dave.

Remember, these fresh Allbirds colorways won’t last—they rarely do, but because these are so perfectly summer-suited, do yourself a favor and jump on this. And while you’re at it, don’t forget to add a free all-wool Allbirds beer koozie to your shopping cart. Once you add a pair of shoes, the $ 10 price tag drops right off, automatically.

The Best New Shorts for Any Summer Adventure

Not to be a downer, but 2019 could produce the hottest summer we’ve ever experienced. And while your comfort is far from global warming’s biggest victim, it is the one you have to manage every time you go for a hike, visit the farmer’s market, or spend a day touring a new city.


25 Action-Packed Summer Trips

That’s why outdoor companies are doubling down on ultra-functional shorts: To make the best of a bad situation by liberating your legs from heat-trapping pants.

Here are the five best new shorts to wear this season.

Eddie Bauer Guide Pro Shorts

Designed for hikers, the Guide Pros are built from a stretchy nylon/polyester blend that delivers UPF 50+ sun protection and resists sopping up the sweat pouring off your legs. Multi-day hikers will appreciate the ultra-soft, odor-resistant waistband and the zippered thigh pocket, which keeps valuables locked away. Oh—and kudos to Eddie Bauer for the Bluesign certification, which means that the material in these shorts meets certain standards for both environmental impact and worker safety.

[$ 70; eddiebauer.com]

Howler Bros Horizon Hybrid Short 2.0

By straddling the line between trail shorts and swim trunks, Howler Bros’ best-selling item makes it easy to jump into any lake that you happen upon during your summer hikes. And now the Hybrid Shorts are even better: With this year’s 2.0 update, the company installed a zippered pocket for cash and identification, attached a bungee loop for hang drying, and installed a discreet drawstring inside the waistband. That means you’ll no longer risk losing your shorts when the river’s current proves stronger than expected.

Search and State Field Shorts

With a production factory in midtown Manhattan, Search and State aims to please urban cyclists first. And while the Field Shorts served us well for rides to our nearby coffee shop, they also proved to be the ones we grabbed first for working in the yard. The waxed cotton is heavier and tougher than standard lightweight hiking fabrics, and at the same time, it resists stains and softens with repeated use. While some shorts wear out with time, these promise to wear in.

[$ 145; searchandstate.com]

Columbia Featherweight Hike Short

Built from wispy nylon and a touch of elastane for stretch, the Featherweights are ideal for the the kind of minimalist hiker who cuts his toothbrushes in half to save weight. Columbia even removed the backside wallet pockets. And to ensure a comfortable fit beneath the weight of a hiking pack, the company added a seamless waistband and a button-fly that sits completely flush against the fabric.

[$ 80; columbia.com]

Western Rise Boundless Short

Consider this the best option for lightweight travelers who need a short that’s traditional enough to wear while walking through outdoor markets but functional enough for outdoor adventures. The nylon/Spandex material delivers solid four-way stretch, and while you won’t find any tactical pockets on the outside, you will find a hidden zipper inside the wallet pocket and a drawstring waistband for impromptu swim sessions.

The Best New Men’s Polo Shirts to Wear This Summer

We’ll tell you something you probably already know: Polo shirts aren’t just a uniform for the golf course. The simple three-button collared shirt is now available in more fabrics, patterns, and styles than ever before, and brands are experimenting with new interpretations of the menswear staple. Whether or not they’ve been in your rotation before, the latest crop of men’s polo shirts are making a strong case for spot in your dresser.


The Best New Sunglasses You Can Wear on Any Adventure

But as you’ll see below, there are lots of great options to choose from. Picking the right polo for you depends on a few different variables, so we reached out to stylists for guidance on what to look for. First off: Make sure you pick one that fits. Size up if the buttons are pulling, says Lisa Cameron, stylist to celebs like Queer Eye‘s Karamo Brown, and make sure you have enough length to cover your stomach if you raise your arms up. But don’t go too baggy—a trimmer polo can accentuate your physique. “If you want to make your arms look a bit bigger,” says stylist Patrick Kenger, “find a polo with some ribbing around the end of the sleeves, which will hug your arms and help them ‘fill out’ the shirt sleeve.”

In addition, try to avoid shirts with lots of branding or big logos. “Keep it clean,” Kenger says.


Hit the Trails in Spring's Best Mountain Biking Gear and Accessories

Stylists agree the polo is a versatile shirt, and you can wear it with quite a few different outfits. For starters, try using it as a replacement for your usual T-shirt.

“One of the best ways I’ve heard it put is that a polo is a gentleman’s T-shirt,” explains Kenger. “If you want to bump things up from the usual T-shirt and jeans outfit, then a polo is a great substitute.”

It also looks great with a suit. You can opt for a monochromatic look by matching your polo with the suit’s color, or go for a complementary color scheme, like a navy suit and pink polo, Cameron advises. You can also try pairing a polo with a bomber jacket, or wearing it with a simple pair of chinos and some sneakers.

Feeling inspired? Here are some of the best new polos to mix up your look this season.

Ralph Lauren The Earth Polo

Even Ralph Lauren, which is basically synonymous with “polo,” is updating its version of the shirt. Check out the Earth Polo, which is made from recycled plastic bottles: Each shirt saves about 12 bottles from heading to the landfill or ending up in the ocean.

Stand out from the crowd by embracing the breezy tropical pattern on this shirt—a perfect print for summer. It also comes with a ribbed finish on the sleeves, which will help accentuate your biceps.

Officine Generale Simon Garment-Dyed Slub Linen Polo Shirt

Who needs buttons? Not you. An inventive take on the classic shirt, this linen iteration does away with the three-button closure for a more relaxed, open collar.

Baobab Polo Shirt

This shirt from up-and-coming menswear brand Baobab uses soft Pima cotton for comfort, and the company’s proprietary fabric treatment makes it resistant to stains, odor, wrinkles, fading, and shrinking. Hate laundry? The company claims you can wear this shirt 10-12 times between washes.

Rhone Commuter Tech Polo

Rhone is known for high-performance, stylish menswear, and that holds true with the company’s new Commuter Tech Polo, too. Anti-microbial, stretchy, and featuring laser-cut venting, it can keep up when you break a sweat, and the subtle “Micro-Check” pattern looks great.

Fourlaps Level Polo

This polo comes with some serious performance specs: 37.5 technology, which uses active particles (which are made from volcanic sand) in the fabric that respond to humidty near your skin, venting moisture as you heat up, and trapping it when you get chilly. No matter what the weather’s doing, this shirt will keep you comfortable.

Live for the Endless Summer with Huckberry and Wellen

If the warmer weather has you jonesing for bonfires on the beach, being the first one in the water, and cruising the PCH at night with the windows open (and the heater on!), Huckberry has a new line of surf-inspired gear that’s just right for summer. Made from a blend of hemp and organic cotton, Wellen is just what you need to bring out the endless summer vibes. Even if the water’s still too cold for the spring suit.

tee shirt
Huckberry

From cozy T-shirts and laid-back polos to jeans that feel as soft as the sand at Trestles, Wellen partners with responsible factories around the world to craft soft, sustainable essentials for sun and swell. There’s nothing fancy here—just amazing beachwear that you’ll want to live in all summer long.

What’s New With Wellen?

Start with the jeans. The soft denim construction is perfect—not too tight, but snug enough to look great when you go from the sand to the bar. They come in three distinct washes: a washed out fade that’s perfect for chilly nights on the sand, a medium rinse that’s sharp enough to wear into work, and a sharp dark denim that’s somehow just as soft and comfortable as the more worn-in looking rinses. They’re $ 88, which is a fantastic price point for sustainable denim.

The Stretch Chore Coat ($ 128) is the perfect post-sun layer. A shirt-jacket with plenty of pockets and a touch of stretch to move with you, it’s available in navy, denim, or dark khaki colorways. Layer it over one of the three colorways of the Hemp Crewneck ($ 68), a cozy sweatshirt that goes with anything and keeps you warm around the bonfire. Those same three colors adorn the Hemp Zip Hoodie ($ 88).

For shirts, the long-sleeved Hemp Henley ($ 58) our new favorite evening go-to. With a generous collar and snug-but-not-tight fit, it comes in four colors: navy, turquoise, white, and dark khaki. The Hemp Polo ($ 58) might be the most comfortable polo shirt we’ve ever worn. With forgiving sleeves that never get anywhere close to the elbow and that soft cotton/hemp combo, it’s fit for the office and even better on the golf course. It comes in black, off-white, rust, and blue.

Hemp polo
Huckberry

And then there are the T-shirts. We know we said the polo was the most comfortable one we’ve ever worn, but we really mean it this time. The Hemp Tee ($ 36) shirt simply rules, and it fits as good as it feels. It comes in off-white, turquoise, bright white, and navy.

Are you ready for an endless summer? Get over to Huckberry today, and check out Wellen surf-inspired gear. We can practically smell the salt in the air.

Summer Stock

Vanessa North

Genre: Gay

Price: $ 3.99

Publish Date: May 8, 2018

Publisher: Vanessa North

Seller: Draft2Digital, LLC


Tabloid scandals have driven TV star Ryan Hertzog to North Carolina's Outer Banks, where he's hiding out doing summer stock at his cousin's seaside theater. When a hookup with local handyman Trey Donovan results in Ryan being photographed butt naked, he vows to keep his pants on and his hands off Trey. How was he supposed to know Trey would turn out to be the summer stock set builder? Trey isn't looking for a relationship; he's still recovering from the emotional fallout of an abusive marriage. But Ryan's laughter draws him in again and again, and he's not about to say no to fooling around. As the summer heats up, the paparazzi catch Ryan in increasingly compromising situations. Ryan might be too much drama for a summer fling—and Trey might be just an intermission from Ryan's Hollywood life. But if they take their cues from Shakespeare, all's well that ends well.

9 Great Sunglasses for Summer From Warby Parker

Warby Parker is renowned for great deals on stylish prescription eyeglasses. But did you know Warby also has a fantastic—and HUGE!—selection of sunglasses? It’s true. From Midcentury to Aviator and everything in between, with colored, smoked, and mirrored lenses, in all sizes and in most any price point.

If you thought Warby Parker was only a one-stop shop for great glasses, you’re in for a pleasant surprise. Head on over to warbyparker.com today and discover nearly 40 sunglass frames and dozens of lens styles to suit your individual taste.

Warby Parker designs all of its sunglasses in-house and makes them with high-quality acetate. It’s durable, hypoallergenic, and capable of holding exceptionally rich colors, plus it’s made to last for years. Every frame is hand-assembled and polished. After the raw material is cut into shape using a CNC machine, it’s tumbled with wood chips and hand-polished with a German wax compound. Warby also uses stainless steel and titanium for metal-framed glasses, because of their high strength-to-weight ratio.

Then they custom-cut and polish the edges of your lenses, all of which are treated with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant coatings. Warby Parker’s impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses block 100 percent of UVA and UVB rays. Lenses come standard with non-prescription glasses, but prescription lenses with all these features are also available (up to $ 120 extra). Once you choose your frames, simply upload an image of your eyeglasses prescription to your order (snap a photo or scan it in) and submit your doctor’s contact information. If you don’t happen to have your prescription handy, you can just send it to Warby Parker later.

I’ve Never Ordered Glasses Online. Help!

Online glasses have exploded in popularity over the last few years, and much of that is due to Warby Parker. The company was one of the pioneers of the online eyeglass market. Warby Parker makes the selection process simple by offering an excellent set of guidelines on how to choose the right glasses for you. Basically, there are five main rules to follow when buying new glasses:

Your pupils should be near the center of the lens
The lenses shouldn’t extend past the side of your face
Your eyebrows should not be inside the glasses; let ’em fly!
When you smile, your cheeks shouldn’t push the frames up
The frames shouldn’t slide down your nose

If you receive your frames and you love them but they don’t fit quite right, Warby Parker will fix the following issues at any of its retail locations, free:

The frames are too tight or loose behind your ears
The temples are too long or too short
The temples are too tight or loose at the side of your face
The frames are crooked or slide down your face

And if you’re not close to a Warby Parker location, most optical shops will make minor adjustments for free or a small fee. If they do charge you, WP will reimburse you up to $ 50 for a single adjustment within 30 days of purchase. Just email them the bill.

So if you still need to pick out a new visage for summer, head over to Warby Parker today and check out their huge selection of sunglasses. It’s a lot easier than you think. We’ve put together a selection of nine great sunglasses from Warby Parker below.

Raider Wide Aviators in Brushed Ink with Flash Gold Lenses

Some may prefer a more traditional aviator colorway, and Warby certainly offers those. That said, we rather like where this black framed/gold lensed sunglass is headed. Sharp but a bit sinister. Available in Wide widths.

Also available in Polished Gold with either Green or Mirrored Gold Lenses

Amon Amarth's triumphant showing at Summer Breeze 2017 truly hammers home that after a quarter of a century they are at the height of their powers. Having played the German festival numerous times over the years and loving the family vibe they have always experienced, Amon Amarth leapt at the chance to appear twice in the same year. Playing a secret, smaller scale set that focused primarily on older material and then headlining the main stage with full production – including their giant sea serpent and plenty of fire, allowing them to showcase their songs at their best, though putting together setlists from such a mighty catalogue was not the easiest of tasks. "For the first night we wanted to write a set that the fans would enjoy by wholly diving into our back catalogue, but we knew we needed to add some newer material too," explains guitarist Olavi Mikkonen. The riveting performances combined with the fevered reaction of those in attendance makes you feel like part of the audience.

Offset’s Sidepiece Summer Bunni Wrote Some Struggle Bars About Their Relationship

Variety’s 2nd Annual Hitmakers Brunch

Source: FayesVision/WENN.com / WENN

For the foreseeable future, Offset will be looking mighty funny in the light after allegedly stepping out on his lady for women who are in Cardi B’s line of work but nowhere near her level of fame. Summer Bunni, the alleged mistress of Offset, apparently put together a track in honor of her relationship with the Migos rapper and insisting that she didn’t intend to be a homewrecker. 

The Blast reports:

Summer Bunni tells The Blast, she penned “Don’t Matter” over the summer when she was experiencing “mixed feelings” about Offset. “I just wanted to write about how I felt at the time,” Bunni says, adding that she felt her emotions were being neglected during her brief fling with the hip-hop star.

As we’ve reported, Cardi B shocked the entertainment world this week when she announced a split with Offset after claiming the two had been trying to make the relationship work for a “long time.” Shortly after news broke, text messages went viral appearing to show Offset was trying to organize a ménage à trois with Bunni and another woman, Cuban Doll.

Bunni is mortified that she has been labeled as a homewrecker and says she never intended to be a catalyst for rapper’s split. “I really thought he and I were for real,” Bunni admits, saying she sincerely hopes the “Bodak Yellow” star can accept her apology one day.

If you want to hear the track, you’ll have to wait to next Tuesday (Dec. 11) or check out The Blast‘s exclusive teaser on their site.

Kelly Slater on Outerknown’s New Breitling Watch Collaboration, the 2020 Summer Olympics, and More

We caught up with surfing icon Kelly Slater in New York during the launch of the Superocean Heritage II Chronograph 44 Outerknown watch, the result of a year-long collaboration between his clothing brand Outerknown and Breitling. Read our full interview below.

Men’s Journal: How did you team up to make this watch happen?
Kelly Slater: Breitling contacted us [Outerknown, the clothing brand Slater co-founded in 2015] about a year ago to talk about this idea and putting together a group of a squad with [pro surfers] Stephanie Gilmore and Sally Fitzgibbons, who are both long-time friends of mine. Breitling really wanted to represent what we mean to our sport, and give us the opportunity to include Outerknown by letting us design the watch bands.


How to Surf for the First Time

So what’s unique about the band?
It’s made with Econyl, a yarn made with recycling fishing nets pulled from the ocean and then re-spinning back into a threading. We’ve created jackets that use it so the whole thing can be recycled. That was part of our beginning and why we launched the brand.

You’ve made your own surfboards and wave machines, so what made you get into clothing?
I just knew that something smelled a little fishy in the way clothing was made, so to speak. There was an epiphany moment. I was doing a fast for six days, I was just drinking water and about four or five days into that, I had just the clearest thoughts ever. I thought I’ve got to find out where our clothes are made when I was with another clothing company. I’ve got to find out who makes the clothes and where they’re made and what goes into it, and I need to know that whole thing because it’s provided me with so much in my life and I don’t know really anything about it. So, I started asking questions and I started getting roadblocks.

This sounds like a conspiracy theory.
I would say that it actually is. I went to a guy who worked for that company who was an artist—I’d known the guy for 20 or 30 years and figured he’d tell me. I went to his office, and I said, “Hey, I want to talk to you about something. I feel like I can get the answer from you before anyone else.” And he goes, “I don’t think you’re going to like the answers.” And he literally stood up and went and shut his door to his office and he said, “Alright, you want to talk about this? You’re just not going to like what you hear, because they’re going to buy everything as cheaply as they possibly can and make it for as little as possible, with people who don’t get paid very well, and don’t have a living wage and all that.”

You’d think for a clothing brand co-owned by a world-famous athlete, your photo would be plastered all over the website. But it’s not.
There were thoughts of calling it Slater, but I just want it to be about the clothing and more about the ideas than it was about me. My goal was to make good clothes the right way and let that stand the test of time. To me, it was more about creating this brand than it was trying to promote myself. Look, I’m proud of what I’ve done. It’s allowed me to have the access to create this company and get people that believe in the things I believe in and see what this could do in an industry that’s allowed that to happen because of what I’ve done. So, of course, I’m very proud of my accomplishments. I didn’t necessarily want to go and run the risk of being cheesy and “go buy Slater stuff.”

So are you adding clothing designer to your resume?
Well, the Apex Trunk is probably my signature piece because that’s what I live in. I worked on all aspects of the design on that trunk, but I don’t have the time to go in there and work on everything. I’m happy with it being tied to me saying the Apex predator. To me, I want to be a great white shark. When I compete, I want to be that top guy. It’s surprising that it’s not all neon though—when I was a kid everything on my surfboards was all orange and green.

I read that if you compete in the 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics, it might be your last competition?
Yes, I wouldn’t say it would be my last event. I’ll probably still surf events for five years after I compete here and there. But I’m looking at potentially next year being my last full-time competitive year. And if I made the Olympics, then I would probably still compete somewhat consistently in the beginning of that year 2020, just to keep myself fresh and alert on how I need to compete, so I won’t be nervous at that time.


The 65 Best Surf Spots in the World

What does it mean for surfing to make it into the Olympics?
I can clearly see either side of it. I could be totally fine without surfing in the Olympics and I can be totally behind it as well. I see the benefit of it, and I also see that we do have a world tour that determines the best surfer in the world each year over the course of a whole year and all different kinds of conditions and I think the best surfer of the year ends up being a world champion. The pressure that’s put on the Olympics, I think, is really going to make the cream rise to the top, because you’re going to have to be just so confident in your game and what you’re doing, and decisive about that on that day, that somebody who is just a natural is going to win that thing.

You’ve been known to chase waves around the world. How do you pinpoint where the surf’s going to be?
When I first started, I had no idea. I would wake up in the morning when I was a little kid I’d take the wax off my board and my friends and I would ride our bike as fast as you can down to the beach. And most days in Florida it was nothing. As a kid, I didn’t know what made waves, I just knew that sometimes I’d wake up and the waves are big, and the wind is good. Then as a teenager, I meet a guy named Sean Collins who had a thing called Wave Track, which turned into what is now probably the biggest surf forecasting site in the world called Surfline. I was good friends with him from the time I was about 13 or 14, and he used to show me swell maps and how he would get weather maps from, say, Australia in June and July. He would be able to read what the storms are doing near New Zealand and he would know 10 days later those were going to hit the California coast. So he would have a good idea of size and interval. And then you look at local wind charts to see how it’s going to be affecting the local conditions.


The Essentials: 5 Must-have Items for Surfing

I started to learn this stuff as a kid and then, through the websites and the apps that those guys have created over the years, it’s basically almost like you can self-teach any of this stuff. You go look at it and you get a good idea about how it works. But luckily there are still a few secrets about how to read them, because I love to go to Fiji and some of the websites will give an incorrect forecast and people don’t understand how to read it. If you know how to read it, it’s really obvious.

Breitling Surfers Squad member Kelly Slater wearing his Superocean Heritage II Chronograph 44 Outerknown
Breitling Surfers Squad member Kelly Slater wearing his Superocean Heritage II Chronograph 44 Outerknown(PPR/Breitling) Courtesy image

Once you hang up surfing competitively, what will you be doing?
I would say for probably a year or two I’ll travel more than I do right now. More short [surf] trips, just strike missions, like chase a swell. Right now I’ve been injured for the last year and a bit so I haven’t traveled, I haven’t chased a lot of swells down. But when I’m done competing full-time I’ll just have my eye constantly on what the ocean is doing around the world, and if I see a good swell in Namibia in July, I might go for two days. Last week, I was going to go to the Northwest coast of Africa and surf but I just kind of didn’t have the time.

Who is the next Kelly Slater?
The next guy is a kid name Eli Hanneman from Maui, he’s 15 and he’s unbelievable.

The Most Breathable, Stylish Outfits for Summer Weddings

Summer weddings are occasions meant to celebrate life, love, and friendships. They’re also the perfect excuse to dance your ass off and showcase your style.

However, that’s nearly impossible if you’re sweating bullets in your go-to, year-round suit. That’s not to say all formal attire will ruin your good time. There are plenty of breathable fabrics and rich textures to keep you looking and feeling cool.

The Wedding Survival Guide

“Summer weddings should be an opportunity to showcase your personality and enjoy the weather—not dread it,” says New York-based stylist Paul Fredrick. “You just need to pick the right jacket and go from there.”

Common breathable fabrics include chambray, cotton, and seersucker, but you can find summer-friendly wool, too. With so many options, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. Lucky for you, we’ve taken the guesswork out of finding the right rig to match any style. Scroll down to find yours.

 

 

 

 

To Look Sharp, but Understated

You can’t look great if you’re pitting out before the vows begin, so pick a suit in a lightweight (or “summer weight”) fabric. Chambray is ideal. It’s made of lightweight cotton with a texture that gives it depth—that’s why it’s one of the summer’s biggest trends.

“It has that casual feeling, but you’ll still look smart,” says New York-based stylist Mitsu Tsuchiya. Wear a solid shirt underneath to create contrast, and a textured shirt to add interest. Get the pants tailored with no break—where the fabric barely touches your shoe—for even more air flow. Then finish the look with a cool pair of loafers, and don’t forget to wear liners.

To Impress Your Date

A jacket is the most crucial part of your look, so invest wisely, says Fredrick. Tan colors look great in summer, and this jacket’s stretch cotton fabric will breathe and move with you throughout the evening. Wear a solid shirt underneath for a sophisticated vibe and a knit tie to add texture. Details are crucial, so don’t forget to strap on a leather watch and a pair or brown brogues for some sharp finishing touches.

To Look Casual-Cool

Seersucker is one of the lightest and most casual suits you can wear, so it’s a great choice for outdoor weddings. A solid, unexpected shade like olive is more modern than traditional stripes. If it’s a casual wedding, lose the dress tie and button-up altogether—a polo looks just as sharp, says Fredrick. Add some casual details with a NATO-strap watch and a pair of white leather sneakers.

Wearing a statement sport coat looks just as sharp as a suit, but allows for more sartorial license. If you want to turn heads, opt for a large windowpane print to show your style moxie. Give your look more complexity by adding a micro-tattersall pattern shirt.

“You can mix prints as long as they’re very different in size,” says Tsuchiya. Match them with a pair of leather loafers with no socks, and you’ll be the most stylish guy on the dance floor.

12 Stylish Swim Trunks You’ll Want to Wear This Summer

The beach is nothing if not a great equalizer. Once you take off your shirt and you’re left with only your swim trunks, everyone knows what’s going on under the hood. And finding the right pair of shorts has never been easier, thanks to more brands designing versatile and stylish trunks that won’t break the bank.

 

When you’re shopping for new swim trunks, consider a few simple visual tricks: Vertical stripes create the illusion of a longer, leaner frame while horizontal ones (as well as bold patterns) can appear to add bulk. Stick with dark, slimming solids if you have thicker, muscular legs. If your legs are on the smaller side, steer clear of short inseams. These work best for average-height and smaller guys who need to show more skin to look longer. More focused on style? “Navy looks great on everyone and goes with just about everything, and red has been the standard for lifeguards on both coasts since the 1960s,” says Bill Carney, director of apparel at iconic board short brand, Birdwell. “Camo is a style staple that can be worn every summer.”

Whether you want to spend $ 35 or have a little room in your budget, here are a dozen stylish, affordable swim trunks you’ll want to rock in the sun this summer.

Outerknown Apex Trunk By Kelly Slater

We’re not saying your swimwear can make you handle waves like a pro surfer, but these trunks certainly stand up to any swells the ocean throws your way. The durable and lightweight material made from recycled plastic bottles not only offers the comfort of 4-way stretch, but it’s also water resistant, so drying time is minimal once you make it back to shore. 

[$ 145; outerknown.com]

Patagonia Wavefarer Standup Shorts

Your bag just a got a lot lighter. No need to bring extra shorts when you can wear these quick-drying swim shorts all day. Made from recycled nylon, they’re the ideal piece to transition from beach to barbecue, and the 50+ UPF protection means you don’t have to obsess over sunscreen if you’re too busy having a good time.

[$ 69; patagonia.com]

Birdwell 310 Board Shorts

You can’t go wrong with these OG surf shorts from the Santa Ana, CA, brand that have been worn by lifeguards and surfers for more than 50 years. The tab closure offers freedom to adjust the fit, nylon offers performance, and the classic camo print actually stands out—in the best sort of way—on the sand.

[$ 79; birdwell.com]

Bonobos Banzai Trunk

Certain patterns can look a little too precious for the pool. Anchors and flamingos, we’re talking to you. But small geometric shapes like these give off a retro vibe and have a cool factor that doesn’t fade. 

[$ 88; bonobos.com]

Courtesy image

Faherty Brand All Day Short

Consider this pair of shorts the closest a piece of apparel can get to a deep breath of sea air. We appreciate the Zen feels of this laid-back brand known for sun-faded colors like this. Rendered in a soft, stretchy technical fabric—and in a length that hits a few inches above the knee—just add a cotton button front shirt and wear this tailored trunk well after the sun goes down.

[$ 98; fahertybrand.com]

Vouri Equator Boardshort

If you’ve got an active day ahead of you, these board shorts can take you from your a.m. workout session to a late afternoon swim. The stretchy, anti-odor, and fast-drying fabric keeps you feeling comfortable and prepared for whatever adventures come your way—even if that is just early morning yoga.

[$ 69; vuoriclothing.com]

Tommy Hilfiger Solid Mid-Length Swim Trunk

Sometimes it’s good to keep it simple. These classic drawstring navy trunks are straightforward, so they’ll go with every color in your closet—from patterns and prints to brighter summer colors—after you dry off. The slightly shorter inseam is just right for average height-and-under guys.

[$ 60; usa.tommy.com]

Courtesy image

Orlebar Brown Bulldog Sport

Along with sunscreen, consider these sophisticated shorts your tropical vacation must. The small pattern, which works for any body type, will stand out when you’re spiking a volleyball on the beach or sipping a frozen drink at the bar. Add a solid black polo when you want to explore after dark.  

[$ 195; orlebarbrown.com]

Nautica Performance Quick-Dry Swim Shorts

You can’t go wrong with these simple and classic cinched waistband shorts. The bright color is the perfect match for that post-vacation tan you’ve been working on, too.

[$ 40; nautica.com]

Saturdays NYC x Mr. Porter Colin Boardshort

We like these shorts because the subtle pattern is tonal, so from far away you might not even know there is one until you get closer. The tailored, streamlined fit with only a single back pocket is flattering on everybody.

[$ 95; saturdaysnyc.com]

LL Bean Classic Supplex Sports Short

Nothing beats a classic performance trunk like this one. Made with breathable performance fabric in UPF 50+, it has all of the attributes you’d want: reliable, versatile, protective, and comfortable in almost any situation.

[$ 35; llbean.com]

Courtesy image

Ralph Lauren Monaco Striped Trunk

Nautical looks are a perennial go-to for guys looking to lighten up their summer style. The horizontal stripes that create the illusion of width are good news for narrow or slimmer frames. The bottom line: They’ll never go out of style.

7 Awesome Hawaiian Shirts to Try This Summer

It’s been a wild ride for the Hawaiian shirt. But after more than 80 years of going in and out of style, the summer look is back—and it’s never looked better.

Today’s Hawaiian shirt is the ultimate throwback: Created in the 1930s, these vivid layers were originally known as aloha shirts (and are still called that on the islands), and they’ve been riding trend waves ever since.


3 Lightweight Sport Coats to Class Up Your Summer Look

The fashion world’s shift toward outlandish colors and patterns led to their recent resurgence, and because they’ve been around so long, they won’t look out of place at your next barbecue. The trick? Don’t wear anything that’s going to compete with your pineapple- or jellyfish-printed wardrobe addition.

5 Lightweight Sneakers for When You Can’t Wear Sandals This Summer

Ditch the overengineered running shoes. These light, comfortable sneakers are perfect for lazy summer activities—and can be crushed between beach reads in your weekend travel bag.


8 Colorful Pairs of Spring Chinos, and How to Wear Them

1. Tretorn x Andre 3000 Benjamin Overdyed Nylite

These retro canvas sneaks are reborn, with help from the rapper of “So Fresh, So Clean” fame. Seems appropriate: The Nylites are both, thanks to an uncluttered canvas upper with a single crisp painted logo.

[$ 110; eastdane.com]


2. Chuck Taylor All Star Perforated Low Top

A classic, updated for hot summer days. Diamond-shaped cutouts bedeck the cowhide-suede uppers of these low-top Chucks. They don’t just look cool—they keep your feet cooler, too.

[$ 120; converse.com]


3. Phil Lace

The suede-and-canvas Phil features a casual easy look, but it’s sneakily capable should you want to wander off the sidewalk. The low-profile but high- traction outsole and a sweat-wicking upper lend an assist in long after-work rambles.

[$ 100; forsake.com]


4. Deerupt

They look dropped from space, but the Deerupts have roots on Earth: The grid motif comes from Adidas’ 1980s running shoes. Here the mesh gives its stretchy upper a socklike fit. A bonus: That upper crushes down to minimize luggage space.

[$ 100; adidas.com]


5. Nohea Moku

Water-ready shoes tend to be homely; not so with these, which can go from the office to an impromptu after-work paddle. The quick-drying fabric upper keeps a low profile, while drainage ports and siping in the outsole provide grip on wet surfaces.

The Best Daily Moisturizers With SPF for Summer

Rule No. 1 for healthy, youthful skin: sun protection, every day. And you may as well moisturize while you’re at it. So invest in daily moisturizers that do both.


How to Reverse Sun Damage to Your Hair

We’ve rounded up our favorite facial lotions that boast SPF, and then some.

 

1. Scent-free: Ursa Major Force Field Daily Defense SPF 18

Fragrance can be irritating to sensitive skin, says New York City dermatologist Anthony Rossi. This one forgoes the aroma but keeps the potency, with naturally derived oils for hydration.

2. Aftershave: Jack Black Double-Duty Face Moisturizer SPF 20

Blue algae extract and sea parsley in this formula contain vitamins A and E, to help reduce redness that can arise post-shave, as well as vitamin C, which ups the sun protection factor.

[$ 28;getjackblack.com]

3. On the Go: Harry’s Face Lotion with SPF 15

This woodsy-scented moisturizer comes in a travel-friendly 1.7-ounce size. Plus, it’s so easy on the wallet that you can stash one each in your medicine cabinet, glove compartment, and gym bag.

[$ 8;harrys.com]

4. Dry Fix: Recipe for men SPF 15 Facial Moisturizer

A healthy dose of aloe vera makes this one of the most hydrating of the bunch. And the Swedish formula also promises to protect your mug against computer-screen radiation.

5. Sun Seeker: Skin Laundry Daily Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 35

3 Lightweight Sport Coats to Class Up Your Summer Look

During summer, unconstructed sport coats will make you look—and, more importantly, feel—like the coolest guy in the room.

Every guy benefits from a well-fitting sport coat. But when the temperatures spike in summer, traditional jackets can turn into an oppressive sauna.


The 10 Light-Weight Fabrics to Wear This Summer

There’s a time and place for seersucker, but if you really want to elevate your look during those dog days, you need an unconstructed coat. Unlike most jackets, these thin variations have little or no lining, so they’re light and comfortable in the heat. Plus, in neutral shades, like those seen here, they’ll work well with the rest of your summer wardrobe—yes, even your T-shirts.

Book 1 in the St. Caroline Series A sweet summer romance set on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay "Masterfully crafted."  —InD'Tale Magazine A wealthy heir called back home by family duty … The town of St. Caroline had never felt like home to Sterling Matthew. Even though the Matthew family could date their residence back nearly a hundred years, Sterling had grown up in boarding schools—and promptly decamped for the ski slopes of Europe after college. When his father falls ill, his mother calls him home to run the family business, the renowned Chesapeake Inn. What Sterling finds, though, is a business on shaky financial footing and a staff resistant to the radical changes he has to make. No matter. He'll do what needs to be done … and then leave St. Caroline for good. A woman who's pulled herself up by the bootstraps … For years, Lucy Wyndham wondered whether she'd ever catch another glimpse of the boy she'd crushed on at the Chesapeake Inn's summer camp for disadvantaged kids. He'd been tall and quiet. Mysterious and aloof. And the owner's son. Now he's her boss and the attraction is just as strong—but they're no more compatible today than they were as teenagers. When he informs her that the camp must be eliminated to improve the resort's bottom line, she embarks on an ambitious campaign to save it. Even if the price is her job … and her heart. Summer Again was previously published as Falling for the Prodigal Son.

This routine comedy is about a series of misadventures during a family vacation at the beach and stars John Candy (who died of a heart attack while filming in Mexico in 1994) as John Chester and Karen Austin as his long-suffering wife Sandy. When the family leave for what turns out to be a pretty decrepit shack on a public beach, Jack eventually locks horns with the owner of this dubious piece of real estate, and their conflict terminates in a boat race in which Jack and his motley crew are at first glance, and even second, no match for the others in the race. In the meantime, there are plenty of skits with Jack dressed as anything from an ample, unintentional likeness of a geisha to the normal tourist dude in a Hawaiian shirt. His wife and daughter tackle their own problems, related to sex in one way or another, mostly another.

Troll Rapper Tekashi69 Turned Away At Summer Jam, Ebro Has A Good Laugh [VIDEO]

Tekashi

Source: Instagram / Instagram

Tekashi69 might be fighting a losing battle trying to secure airplay on HOT 97. He was turned away at Summer Jam this past weekend.

The rainbow haired rapper took to Instagram Live as he and his crew attempted to enter to the New York Hip-Hop station’s annual concert but were turned away. Naturally the rejection did not sit well with the Brooklyn native which lead to several rounds of arguing with police on site at the event and even a confrontation with local rapper Loccie Shmula.

Instagram Photo

Of course Shmula took to social media to explain the backslide.

Instagram Photo

While at the time it was uncertain why the Brooklyn native was denied entrance, HOT 97’s Ebro Darden has confirmed that he wasn’t invited to perform.  “Reason we didn’t have you on Summer Jam is cause you don’t know how to shut up bro” he explained on “You Played Yourself” segment during the Ebro In The Morning show.

Darden went on to detail how he was trying to give him some stage time but things went left. “I had a whole thing but I wasn’t gonna tell him in advance because his dumbass doesn’t know how to shut up,” Ebro said. “We had a whole plan. People was working. People really wanna help this kid but he doesn’t know how to shut up.”

The former executive turned on-air personality also alleges that Tekashi allegedly covered up his face tattoos to get pass security. “Well if Summer Jam really fell off so bad fam, why you outside with makeup on covering up your tattoos trying to get inside?”

You can view Ebro’s response below.

Rental Price: $ 6.99

Release Date: May 18, 2018


Welcome to Grey Gardens…as you've never seen it before. Three years before the Maysles' landmark documentary introduced the world to Edith and Edie Beale—the unforgettable mother-daughter (and Jackie O. relatives) living in a decaying dream world on Long Island—renowned photographer Peter Beard chronicled life at their crumbling estate during one summer in 1972. For the first time ever, director Göran Olsson (The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975) assembles this long-lost footage—featuring glimpses of luminaries like Andy Warhol, Mick Jagger, and Truman Capote—into a one-of-a-kind family portrait bursting with the loving squabbles, quotable bon mots, and impromptu musical numbers that would make Big and Little Edie beloved cultural icons.
