Men's style: Casual essentials for days on deck


Anthony Peto hat

Whether it's off duty essentials for serious sailors or tropical prints to really get you in the vacation mood, with days on deck, at the beach or around the pool, Mark Grischke suggests a few key men's fashion items for relaxing in style...

Anthony Peto hat

To keep your lid stylish, swap the ubiquitous baseball cap for something more debonair, like this handmade Cuenca Panama by British-born, Paris-based Anthony Peto.



Pendleton towel

Founded in 1909, Pendleton is a sixth-generation American institution. Known for its Native American-inspired blankets, the brand has branched out, and now offers summer must-haves like this oversized “towel for two”.



Cutler and Gross sunglasses

Since 1969, Cutler and Gross has been known for its range of distinctive, but very wearable, spectacles and sunglasses. The new collection includes this classic aviator with rainbow lenses, which guarantees a sunny outlook.



Thom Browne keyring

Thom Browne’s contemporary take on Ivy League style results in clothes and accessories that are decidedly tongue-in-cheek, such as this enamelled brass key ring.



Lotuff Leather bag

Lotuff Leather celebrates American craftsmanship and each piece it sells, like this elegant tote, is made in the USA. With headquarters in Providence, Rhode Island, visitor appointments are encouraged.



Missoni T-shirt

Mention Missoni, and most men think of zigzag-striped sweaters, but there’s more to it than winter wool. Missoni Mare, the label’s beachwear collection, offers plenty of sunny options, including this cotton T-shirt.



Orlebar Brown trunks

Adam Brown launched Orlebar Brown to provide men with truly classic resort wear, and is kept fresh via collaborations with artists like Sanda Anderlon’s beach scene collage.



Louis Leeman espadrilles

Founded in 2012 by Dutch designer Louis Leeman and Italian fashion stylist Erica Pelosini, Louis Leeman’s unique men’s shoes are luxurious but not stuffy, as this suede sneaker/espadrille hybrid attests.
