I spend a lot of time hunched behind the camera. Maybe slightly disheveled, looking through the lens at a burnished slice of perfection that is my wife. She sits patiently whilst I check the angle of the sun, if her hair is tastefully messy but not too messy, which direction the wind is blowing from, whether my composition is on point, and a million other permutations. All of these must add up to equate a frozen moment in time that must evoke an emotion, a stir that causes the viewer to slightly shuffle themselves and think ‘Wow.’.
This time however, the tables have turned! Everything is backwards! Up is down! Left is right! I am in front of the camera hopefully not slightly disheveled but very…sheveled?
Today’s upturned tables come in partnership with Bonobos, a brand I have been wearing for quite a while. I have a few cardigans and a light jacket from Bonobos but today is all about the summer wear. I’ve worn this getup for a few weeks and I can tell you at times it’s so comfortable, it’s like I’m not wearing anything at all!
My Riviera short sleeve shirt was tailor-made for summer. It’s very light, airy, and 100% cotton so it breathes better than the wearer when it’s warm outside. Gone are the days of trying to find a thin enough fashionable T-shirt that won’t make me sweat unnecessarily. I can wear this while out and about in the sun but still look good. This particular shirt comes in 76 different prints so you’re bound to find a print that shows your personality and allows you to express yourself the way you want to. I got my usual size medium/standard for reference.
I tested the swim trunks as well throughout France and in New York and they’re just what I’ve been trying to get for quite a while. They’re soft even when they’re dry and the band is very comfortable so it doesn’t need to be adjusted at all. Just tie it once and you don’t need to worry about it anymore! Nevermore will I need to re-tie my trunks if I get out of the pool and eat a little too much barbecue. The best part about Bonobos is there are 200+ different combinations of fit (including silhouettes, waist sizes, and pant lengths) so there’s a fit for every man! I got my usual size 33 for reference.
I always say buy it nice or buy it twice, and Bonobos is definitely something nice! You can instantly tell the quality of the clothing at first touch and I’ll definitely be rocking the Riviera shirt and trunks for every summer.
Thanks for stopping by, and happy shopping!
