Statistics, eh? Apparently there’s more chance of being killed by a toaster than a shark. And a 28% chance that you’re going on holiday in the next 3 weeks.
We don’t like to argue with the numbers - so, this week, we’re eating cereal for breakfast … and composing our checklist for the beach. Some ideas to round out your holiday packing:
1 - Italian Cotton Shorts, by SPOKE - now 25% off:
The sharpest shorts on the beach in our signature tailored cut. A handful of these left in Khaki, Navy and Grey.
2 - Slubbed Cotton T-Shirts, by SPOKE
“Wow, I have just too many fresh t-shirts” said no man, ever. These are cut from the finest slubbed jersey cotton in an incredible 12 sizes, for a perfect fit. A better summer tee you will not find - and next day delivery is free on all orders before 3pm.
3 - Wave Loafer in Navy & White, by Swims
21st century deck shoes, cut from rubber and neoprene - a perfect marriage of form and function.
4 - Glacier Park Towel, by Pendleton
There are few greater luxuries in this world that a good rub down with a soft, deep pile towel. The Pendleton’s have been making these in America for 6 generations - dyed in their classic, signature palette.
5a - Flash Boys, by Michael Lewis
Our Non-fiction summer pick: ’High Frequency Trading’, made thrilling - marvel at how Michael Lewis has pulled it off again …
5b - Stoner, by John Williams
“The best novel you’ve never read”, rediscovered after 50 years in total obscurity. Haunting stuff.
6 - Brown Acetate Sunglasses, by Suit Supply
You will lose or break your sunglasses - it’s a universal law of nature. So stop spending £150 on them. Channel Don Draper with these acetate classics, for less than £80
7 - Tote bag, by Marc Jacobs
You may be a man, but you’ll still need a bag for your beach clobber - and there’s no danger this olive, black and blue tote will ever be confused with a ‘man-bag’. Made in tough, water-resistant nylon, with beige leather handles.
8. Hand surf by Frescobol Carioca
The latest beach toy from our friends at Frescobol - hand-shaped in Brazil and finished with beeswax. Hand surfing successfully will instantly make you the most attractive man on the beach. Fact. Good luck.
Enjoy the sun.
