All the Best Gear to Wear on a Spring Bar Crawl

Maybe you enjoy that age-old pursuit of bar-hopping fairly frequently in your hometown on the weekends. But what about once you’ve packed up and left town on a spring getaway? Will you still be ready for a pub crawl (as you should be) at the drop of a hat? And specifically, what the heck are you going to wear? It’s a style situation within a style situation, but the key is taking your favorite essentials and then having a little fun with them. After all, the beer’s going to be flowing, might as well look great while enjoying your favorite beverage. Let’s go for fun, stylish menswear — nothing stuffy or serious. Kind of like spring break overall, right? Bottoms up.

La Paz Alegre Shirt – $152

It’s a spring bar crawl, likely in a fun coastal city, so let’s have a little fun here with this shirt. It’s old-school-inspired and mixes in the casual with the playful; it avoids the gaudy nature of a loud printed shirt or a neon tank-top, too. Subtly stylish yet unique is what we’re going for here.
