Recent Pick-Ups: Glanshirt Horizontal Stripe Popover

Just snagged this via Yoox. I’ve been looking for a horizontal striped button-up for a while now, and I was lucky enough to find this cotton one, with spread collar and chest pocket, as a popover. My summer shirt game has been super rad, but this just pushed it to super gnarly.

The Ultimate (not boring) Beach Kit:

Whenever summer comes rolling around there is this emergence of print, pastel, and neon, and the majority of that activity happens in the swimwear realm. I don’t want to be absolute here, so I’ll choose my words wisely: I hate it. I can’t stand pastels in any form, and neon should exist almost solely in signs and running gear. 

My choices for beach dress echo those of my normal summer wardrobe, simple, lightweight, and comfortable. That explains my go-to beach kit, a white linen button-up (at least four buttons undone), navy trunks, and espadrilles. You may be asking, “Why so plain, Alex?” Well, the same thing that makes a navy suit with a white shirt and navy tie look so great applies here too. This is the ultimate summer color combination, and if you do it with the right pieces, you can’t go wrong. This is the mature thing to wear; this is the sophisticated thing to wear. Damn it, it’s what Bond would have worn. In the words of Luciano Barbera, “The greatest statement is understatement.” You’ll look like a menswear Moses, parting the seas of capri-length board shorts, two dollar flip-flops, and obscene bro tanks. 

It will be worth it, because somewhere in the masses of freshmen coeds, juiced up bros, and crinkled divorcees there will be an absolutely beautiful half Spanish, half French dime. She’ll pick you out of the neon crowd. She will look you directly in the eyes, and she will say, “How about I wear that linen shirt and we go get a drink?” You will say, “Absolutely,” but in your mind you will be saying, “Thank you Alex Delany. Thank you.”

You only need two colors, and you don’t need patterns.
Simplicity speaks volumes in a summer kit.
