Found this picture (didn't have to search too hard) on Secret Forts and fell head over heals for the dirty saddle shoes. I've always been a fan of wearing shoes to the beach, especially my vans. The fine grain sand works as a pseudo baby powder and will keep my shoes from falling into the evil grips of the stank. Everything else from the slightly oversized shirts to the length of the shorts just appeals to me. So, when it comes to my next visit to the beach either here in New York or back home in L.A. you'll catch me in this exact outfit (J. Crew blue or gray chambray, Woolrich brown corduroy bush shorts and a pair of Mark McNairy New Amsterdam pigeon saddle shoes) , and if I'm lucky I'll have a beautiful girl holding my hand as well.
