<a href='http://bit.ly/15vWtdA' target='_blank'><b>2XIST Herringbone Ibiza Swim Trunks (Cobalt)</b></a><br />
These are my go-to swim trunks this summer. They have a classic style with the short and slim cut, but are a little fun at the same time with the herringbone pattern.<br />
<br />
<a href='http://bit.ly/YRYK3J' target='_blank'><b>Topo Designs Accessory Bag</b></a><br />
This is one of the most stylish ways I've found to keep all my cords and chargers together in one place in my bag.<br />
<br />
<a href='http://bit.ly/15yQs4B' target='_blank'><b>Allen Edmonds Grand Cayman Horsebit Loafers (Brown)</b></a><br />
These shoes are sophisticated without being too dressy and always get many compliments…by far my favorite shoes this summer.<br />
<br />
<a href='http://bit.ly/104SPpy' target='_blank'><b>Royall Bay Rhum Aftershave</b></a><br />
Bay Rhum is a classic masculine scent. I like that it is subtle and not overpowering because being too-much-cologne-guy is always a bad choice.<br />
<br />
<a href='http://bit.ly/15J5VL3' target='_blank'><b>Baxter of California Super Shape SPF 15 Moisturizer</b></a><br />
Skin care isn't something that most men think about on a regular basis, but it is extremely important. This is a great daily moisturizer that is non-greasy and also contains sunblock. It’s perfect for summer or all year round.<br />
<br />
<a href='http://bit.ly/135a0dZ' target='_blank'><b>Fisher Space Pen</b></a><br />
I love this little thing, and I've had it for nearly a decade. It feels great to write with; plus, it just looks really cool.<br />
<br />
<a href='http://bit.ly/11n1PVn' target='_blank'><b>J.Crew White Lightweight Vintage Oxford Shirt</b></a><br />
When it comes to clothes, I am a big fan of versatility, and there is no more versatile piece for summer than a white lightweight cotton button-down. It works in so many situations— cocktails, running around the city or even at the beach—which is why it is a staple of my summer wardrobe.<br />
<br />
<a href='http://bit.ly/13GytBD' target='_blank'><b>Ray-Ban Clubmaster Sunglasses</b></a><br />
In the summer I rarely step out of the house without a pair of sunglasses; more than likely, they will be my favorite Clubmasters.

<br />
<a href='http://ow.ly/nq7IK' target='_blank'><b>Nike Fueldband</b></a><br />
It tracks how many footsteps I take in a day, which is very important. I shoot for 10,000, but I average 3,000. I need to walk more…<br />
<br />
<a href='http://ow.ly/nq7kC' target='_blank'><b>My iPad mini</b></a><br />
I always need to be connected.<br />
<br />
<a href='http://ow.ly/nr2DH' target='_blank'><b>Byredo Black Saffron Fragrance</b></a><br />
If I’m going out, I need to smell great.<br />
<br />
<b><a href='http://ow.ly/nq7qv' target='_blank'>Signature Moisture Masque</a></b><br />
The summer tends to dry out my hair, and I need a little extra moisture. I also need a little extra hair.<br />
<br />
<a href='http://ow.ly/nq7BN' target='_blank'><b>John Varvatos Suit</b></a><br />
His new cuts are nice and tapered and make a boxy guy like me look like a hipster trendsetter. The black and grey are both staples.

<br />
<a href='http://ow.ly/nqX2w' target='_blank'><b>Indestructible LifeProof iPhone case</b></a><br />
Ever fear for your phone’s life when near the pool or beach? Get a case that can withstand anything. You won’t regret it…I learned that the hard way. <br />
<br />
<a href='http://ow.ly/nqWCX' target='_blank'><b>Coach Bleecker City Tote Bag</b></a><br />
I love my totes, and I never go anywhere without one. Finding one with plenty of pockets and space is a necessity. Who doesn’t want to be ready for a weekend getaway at a moment’s notice?<br />
<br />
<a href='http://ow.ly/nqWvd' target='_blank'><b>Beach Defense™ Sunscreen Spray Broad Spectrum SPF</b></a><br />
I’m always on the go and need things that are quick-to-use. Spray sunscreen is the quickest way to stay protected from powerful UV rays.<br />
<br />
<a href='http://ow.ly/nqWVe' target='_blank'><b>ASOS Printed Shirt</b></a><br />
I love a good short-sleeved button-down in the summer. If you want to stay on trend, grab one with a print. They’re fun and attention-grabbing!<br />
<br />
<a href='http://ow.ly/nqWn7' target='_blank'><b>Unique Sunglasses</b></a><br />
A pair of funky, unique sunglasses—like these from Warby Parker—helps set my look apart from the rest, and it’s something you wear with almost any outfit since you have to protect your eyes from the sun!<br />
<br />
<a href='http://ow.ly/nqW3e' target='_blank'><b>Chino Shorts</b></a><br />
Colorful chino shorts are my go-to bottoms. They’re the easiest way to maintain some class when the weather is scorching hot.

<a href='http://winebotas.com/selection_of_winebotas.html' target='_blank'><b>A WineSkin</b></a><br />
I don’t carry it, but wouldn’t it be cool to carry it on a ski trip or drink wine from the skin on the beach? Or drink wine and pretend you’re at the beach? What if you infused the wine with SPF?<br />
<br />
<a href='http://ow.ly/nq7NB' target='_blank'><b>Curl by Definition</b></a><br />
It acts like a minimizer on my curly, coarse, gray hair and keeps it all orderly. I’m sad to get old, but happy to have Curl by Definition!<br />
<br />
<b>My sketch pad/scrap book </b><br />
I’m always clipping and sketching and noting…<br />
<br />
<b>My pilot, disposable fountain pen.</b><br />
<br />
<b>Something to read (right now it’s <a href='http://ow.ly/nq86E' target='_blank'><i>The Golem and the Jinni</i></a>)</b><br />
I always have a book…one bound with paper and with words on it: You can bend the page, take it out on the subway and read it before bed. It gives me a purpose on the beach.

<br />
<a href='http://ow.ly/nq8vj' target='_blank'><b>Dr. Brandt Lineless Cream</b></a><br />
I like to look fresh and moisturized.<br />
<br />
<a href='http://ow.ly/nq8iw' target='_blank'><b>Original Pomade</b></a><br />
I like my hair shiny and pulled together. I use this almost every day. <br />
<br />
<a href='http://ow.ly/nq8mP' target='_blank'><b>Marc Jacobs Polo Shirts</b></a><br />
These are great, and I love the colors they come in.<br />
<br />
<b>Dior Homme White Jeans </b><br />
They wash well and don’t make me look fat!<br />
<br />
<a href='http://www.y-3store.com/us/sneakers_cod44297724tb.html' target='_blank'><b>Y-3 Tomotak Tennis Shoes </b></a><br />
They’re really lightweight and comfortable.<br />
<br />
<b>Bottles of a new fragrance I’m experimenting with. Stay tuned!</b>

<a href='http://ow.ly/nq9Mr' target='_blank'><b>Ray-Ban Sunglasses</b></a><br />
I don’t leave the house without them.<br />
<br />
<a href='http://ow.ly/nq9TD' target='_blank'><b>Chop’t Salads</b></a><br />
The best meal. I could eat them every day…sometimes I do!<br />
<br />
<a href='http://ow.ly/nq9Zp' target='_blank'><b>J. Crew Short-Sleeved Shirts</b></a><br />
These amazingly well-made and comfortable shirts are a must.<br />
<br />
<a href='http://ow.ly/nqa3p' target='_blank'><b>Stumptown Iced Americanos</b></a><br />
I’m a caffeine addict. I get one every day.<br />
<br />
<a href='http://ow.ly/nqa8E' target='_blank'><b>Marshall Headphones</b></a><br />
I’m always listening to music, and these headphones exceed comfort and sound quality expectations.

 <br />
<b>Sir New York Jogging Pants</b><br />
These jogging pants are a collaboration between Auston Bjorkman and #futureprints artist Ross Schaner. They defined the cozy boy lifestyle this summer.<br />
 <br />
<a href='http://ow.ly/nqaCD' target='_blank'><b>Sandro Chris Formal Shirt</b></a><br />
It’s the ultimate button-up: minimalistic, white, slim-collared, plus, hidden buttons. Fasten it all the way up—David Lynch style—and rock out. <br />
<br />
<a href='http://ow.ly/nqakt' target='_blank'><b>Nike Roshe Run Metric</b></a><br />
It’s technically a woman’s shoe, but screw it. They’re crazy comfortable and have a geometric design good enough to make me like math again.<br />
<br />
<a href='http://ow.ly/nqap1' target='_blank'><b>A$AP Ferg’s Trap Lord</b></a><br />
Fergenstein has a nasty, ultra-hype flow and sings with enough heart to make Phil Collins cry. This album will make history. <br />
 <br />
<a href='http://ow.ly/nqatZ' target='_blank'><b>CLR Therapy x Bernard James Paint Brush Necklace</b></a><br />
It’s understated, but baller. The dab of red paint really makes the beauty pop.<br />
 <br />
<a href='http://www.olay.com/skin-care-products/anti-aging-products/anti-aging-cream?pid=075609007408' target='_blank'><b>Olay Regenerist Face Cream</b></a><br />
NYC summers get as muggy and gross as a dumpster in a microwave, so I’m grateful to have this kickass face cream to refresh my skin.<br />
 <br />
<a href='http://ow.ly/nqaGv' target='_blank'><b>Adidas Tiro 13 Training Pants</b></a><br />
Slim and tapered to perfection, you’d think these pants were a Jeremy Scott collaboration, but they’re really straight-up soccer pants. And they’re cool as hell.

<br />
<a href='http://ow.ly/nqEPZ' target='_blank'><b>Maison-Francis Kurkdijan Aqua Vitae</b></a><br />
It has Sicilian mandarin and calabrian lemon for a bit of summer sparkle, but after sitting, mellows into a seductive vanilla-tonka-guaiac blend. It’s my heat wave guilty pleasure. <br />
<br />
<a href='http://ow.ly/nqDUj' target='_blank'><b>Prada Suede Drivers</b></a><br />
I hate wearing socks, and I love versatile shoes. I have these in light gray, and they make everything I’m wearing look super chic.<br />
<br />
<a href='http://ow.ly/nqCzB' target='_blank'><b>Persol Sunglasses</b></a><br />
These were a fabulous find, especially after tragically losing my super-expensive favorite Tom Ford aviators. I found them at a Saks outlet…best present ever.<br />
<br />
<a href='http://ow.ly/nqCR4' target='_blank'><b>Dermalogica Oil Free Matte SPF 30</b></a><br />
This sunscreen won’t white me out, won’t irritate my skin and isn’t greasy. It’s perfect for mixing with moisturizer and spreading accordingly. <br />
<br />
<a href='http://ow.ly/nqDwY' target='_blank'><b>Thick Dry Finishing Spray</b></a><br />
When my pompadour deflates mid-day, a blast of this makes my hair look fresh and feel ultra-touchable. Love it.<br />
<br />
<a href='http://ow.ly/nqECb' target='_blank'><b>Melvin’s Body Good</b></a><br />
My favorite facialist, Joanna Vargas, once told me that green juice is the best thing you can consume for your skin. I’m obsessed with Melvin’s Body Good, which is slightly spicy and super fresh.<br />
<br />
<a href='http://ow.ly/nqEeu' target='_blank'><b>NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer</b></a><br />
I love long, endless summer nights, but I hate the morning after. I have one of these wands on me at all times to keep me looking wide awake. It’s easily blendable and barely detectable.
