Swim Trunk Guide: A Short Story

If you're like me you've probably worn board shorts to the beach or pool for years. For your consideration, I present the 4 inch swim trunk. At first I thought short swim trunks would be ideal just for guys who are 5'5 or shorter so they can look taller but that's not so. As a guy of average height (5'10) I tried them out for myself and realize short swim trunks work for guys of all heights. And let's be serious, a lot of guys hike up their board shorts when laying out in the sun. A shorter swim trunk will give you one less thing to worry about while catching some rays.

Here are some short swim trunk option: Parke and Ronen (as seen below), Diesel, Original PenguinEmporio Armani,  and Andrew Christian.

Pattern Play- The Parke & Ronen swim trunks have a small pattern. Don't be afraid to partner them with another pattern like seen above.

Si eres como yo lo mas probable es que te has puesto bañador bermuda para ir a la playa o piscina toda tu vida. Quisiera que consideres el bañador de 4 pulgadas o bañador bóxer. Antes pensaba que un bañador boxer es ideal para un hombre de baja estatura para verse mas alto, pero no es así. Yo mido 5'10 y los probé por primera vez aquí. Sabes que? No importa la altura de uno, el bañador bóxer es para todos. Ademas, el bañador bóxer permitirá que haya mas de ti expuesto al sol. La decisión es tuya.

Swim Trunk Guide: Stripes

 With summer just around the corner it's time you get yourself ready for the beach and to relax. One of the main things you'll need is a pair of great swim trunks. This week I'll show you what's available out there so you can have one less thing to worry about. Let's start with striped swim trunks, you can go with bold stripes, horizontal or even vertical. Don't be afraid to wear them straight from the beach and to the streets by pairing them with a solid colored shirt. For me, a white short sleeve shirt is always smart option but a navy or gray shirt will work too.

Here are some more choices from Swims (what I'm wearing below) Lacoste, Obey, Vilebrequin, Original Penguin, and Jack Spade.

El verano llegara pronto y es hora que te prepares para la playa y para relajarte. Una de las cosas que vas a necesitar va ser un traje de baño. Esta semana te mostrare lo que esta en tendencia este verano para que tengas una preocupacion menos. Empezemos con trajes de baño con rayas, las rayas pueden ser anchas, horizontales o aun verticales. No tengas miedo de salir de playa e ir directamente al restaurante al ponertelo con una camisa de color solido. Para mi, una camisa blanca siempre es una buena opcion pero una camisa azul marino o gris tambien pueden funcionar.

Short Sleeves Shirts at The Miami Design District

As I was on my way to the airport on my latest visit to Miami, I decided to check out my high school alma mater's neighborhood, the Miami Design District. I was amazed to see how much it had changed for the better. Where there would be small independent galleries or vacant spaces there's a Tom Ford and Dior shop opening. They don't stick out that much as right across the street you can find  Givenchy, Burberry and even a Loewe boutique amongst other luxury brands. In the middle of all this there is a courtyard with a huge bubbly sculpture very similar to what you might've seen at the Dior Cruise collection show just a few days ago. So what do you wear to a place like this? Keep it classy and simple and because of the humidity South Florida is famous for a short sleeve shirt is perfect. Oh, and make sure to walk over to the neighborhood of Wynwood to check out all the impressive street art too.

Shirt and Pants- Bonobos | Sunglasses - Garrett Leight California Optical | Shoes- Aldo | Suitcase- Burton

One of the smartest travel decisions I've made is taking this Burton suitcase with me. After years of traveling this bag's wheels are so smooth it glides and everything I need fits. It's the ideal bag.

Accessories For The Season

As the weather get's hotter and more humid layering is hard to do. That's why you have to branch out, make sure your accessories are on point so you wont need a lot to make a statement. These are some of my favorites for the season.

Garrett Leight California Optical or GLCO for short has been on my radar for some time. Their modern silhouettes with classic feel are perfect the sunny days ahead.

Love this Maison Kitsuné cap from their '15 collection. It reminds me of my days in Paris and how sometimes I want to be Parisian.

If you're looking for cool slip-ons make sure to check out Aldo's selection. I'm hearting these and plan on wearing them all summer long.

Did you notice the watch throughout the pictures? It's from Skagen and so is this bag! This supple leather bag is the right size for all your needs. I took this around Miami and it was perfect.
