day-at-the-beach-900

It’s hot outside. Like, really hot outside. Hotter than a Terry Richardson shoot at the beach. Ok, maybe it’s about that hot. You have two options: sit in the a/c all day and get hit in the face with a brick wall of humidity when you run out of beer, or cool off the old fashioned way with water. You’re going to be hot regardless of where you are, so you might as well work on a tan and see some pretty girls in the process. Here’s everything you need to survive a day at the beach. Just remember, beer and margaritas are delicious, but they don’t actually hydrate. Drink some fluids.

Gerber-Pocket-Square-Linerlock-1_1024x1024

A pocket square is a touch of old school class. It’s an element that casually lets people know you’re a gentleman. This knife from Gerber borrows its name from the humble pocket square because it too is sharp and dressy. Eschewing superfluous design elements for a sleek, clean appearance, the Gerber Pocket Square Knife is refined and mature. The machined aluminum handle is paired with a 3” drop point blade and an ambidextrous thumb lift for one stunning folder. If James Bond relied on a pocket knife, this would be it.
