Ditch the solid trunks this Labor Day weekend and go for bold prints or patterns. Palm Springs meets New England with this look featuring Mr Turk in Greenwich, CT’s Tod’s Point; a beach/park and marina that is must if you’re ever in Fairfield County.
Here on a bright, breezy day, Tom models one of Mr Turk’s latest swimwear designs, the safari board shorts, paired with a mini houndstooth patterned short sleeve button down. The shirt is very versatile and we did two looks with it, showing how to transition from casual summer work into a festive, holiday-ready outfit.
The shark’s the hottest animal right now! Discovery Channel’s annual, week-long obsession of the sea creature started on Sunday, and Sharknado‘s becoming a cult classic; with plans for a second film due in 2014 that will be based in New York.
When I came across TOMs’ Shark Week shoes, I fell in love with them and put together a look based around the ‘it‘ animal’s new footwear. With the shoes having a strong pattern already, even if you go with the Biminis, I wanted to keep the look simple, but still sharp.
Shot by the Intrepid, I styled Eric here with John Varvatos’ silk-blend Hampton polo in dry fig and a pair of dark wash, skinny jeans from Express. Accessories include are VonZipper’s new Commonwealth sunglasses in torte, a brown cuff watch from GUESS, and the tech-friendly Herschel Supply Heritage backpack—all of which matched the navy canvas and brown suede stringing the eyelets perfectly.
