Chances are, there’s a beach in your very immediate future.
And if that happens to be a nude beach... well, maybe stop reading.
Because then you won’t require the services of Salt Surf, a Brooklyn-based house of wearable summer provisions (and non-wearable surfboards) that just became friendly with the Internet for the first time ever, online now.
If a sudden plot twist had Don Draper—you know, that guy we mention a lot in stories like this—giving up on advertising completely and riding the series out as a mysterious East Coast surfer, he’d probably be wearing this stuff.
Things like soft cotton T-shirts that have been washed 40 times for that “washed 40 times” feel. Thigh-friendly swim trunks. Bucket hats that are less Caddyshack Murray and more Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas Depp.
They’ll also sell you surf wax and six actual surfboards.
And here you thought all that surf talk was just for show.
Cold beer in a warm mug is... still pretty good. But that’s no excuse not to procure this bar-mounted spout that connects to a CO2 tank and turns regular mugs into frosty mugs in 10 seconds flat. Especially now that it exists.
You know Levi’s. Been around since the 1870s. Wearable 365 days a year. And now they’re unveiling new finishes and washes in the classic 501®, the 511™ slim and more. They’re just as appropriate at a backyard cookout as they are courtside at the playoffs. Or, you know, eating a sandwich.
Frank Clegg has been making attractive leather things for quite some time. A fine guy, that Frank Clegg. And now, he’s finally decided to share them with you online. Heads up for the Michael Bastian collection (think suede card holders, duffels, totes...). Your pockets are about to feel very neglected.
Once upon a time in the ’50s, a rather notable photographer named Larry Fink took a road trip. He stopped by places like Cedar Rapids and Cincinnati. You know, those old visual hot spots. And then he published a photography book called The Beats that you read about in an UrbanDaddy email.
Question: What do John Wayne’s Western jacket, Elvis’s light-blue suit and a signed copy of the Beatles’ Please Please Me LP have in common? Answer: You currently own none of them. And that’s a real problem. So hit the Heritage Auctions site to bid for them. Well, outbid. Otherwise, same problem.
True story: a Beijing artist traveled to southern France, bottled some fresh air and sold it back home for $860. It was a symbolic gesture to protest Chinese pollution. But still, that’s like $860 more than you’ve ever paid for air.
