You work hard all year to treat yourself to some R&R on your summer vacation.  It’s time to unwind and spend time with family and friends.  Whether you’ve booked some time far off in the Caribbean or something closer to home in Ocean City--we’ve put together a list of your packing essentials, along with some must-have trends to spruce your Summer wardrobe.


Filson Luggage

Filson has been around since 1897 which means they’ve had time to perfect and prove their craft.  This Filson Duffle bag is made with rain-resistant rugged twill and durable bridle leather. It's designed to meet maximum airline carry-on size restrictions, so you only need one bag for all of your adventures and you never have to check it during flights. The rustproof brass zipper and storm flap closure offers added protection from the weather, making this versatile bag great for overnight trips of all types.



A Great Swimsuit

This isn’t always our favorite thing to shop for, so chances are you’ve put off updating this crucial item.  The big trend for fall is “Urban Safari” so we love this fern print suit from Original Penguin.  The peachy color looks great with a tan, but it also comes in navy if you’re not quite there yet.  Not a fan of prints? You can still look current by replacing your board shorts with a vintage-inspired cut and slightly shorter length.  Our Barbour swimsuits come in two solid colors and are a great update for the modern classic man.


Fulton & Roark Solid Cologne

We love solid cologne for the man on-the-go.  It wears on your skin well, fits easily in your luggage or gym bag, and meets TSA.  Our new Fulton & Roark colognes come neatly packaged in a shatterproof cannister in great beach-inspired fragrances like Clearwater and Tybee.  The wax-based formula is built for a long-lasting and steady wear.

A Cool Linen Shirt

Linen is always a great choice for summer and done right can give you an effortlessly stylish look.  Look for heavier weighted linen or a linen blended with other fibers to minimize wrinkles.  Pair with a lightweight suit for work or jeans for a night out to add versatility.  Play with proportions.  Keep bottoms fitted to maintain a modern tailored appearance.



A lightweight jacket

In the warm summer months, it’s easy to forget to pack this piece but you’ll thank us after the sun goes down.  LA-based company Life/After/Denim understands the importance of layering and created this lightweight jacket to be the perfect compliment to your summer wardrobe.  The shirt tail hem and toggle detailing make it interesting and the super soft fabric will make you happy to put it on.
