The menswear world calls for you to be prepared for anything — including when it comes to the most stylish gear to wear on a boat. Yes, that’s right — just because you’re spending a day away from land doesn’t give you an excuse to let your style game slack. The most stylish gear to wear on a boat has both rugged functionality and great looks — just like many of your favorite outfits to rock back on land. Classic brands — ranging from Sebago to Abercrombie and Fitch — are reliable standbys throughout the summer months, and we think you’ll find that’s just as true when on a boat as it is when strolling the boardwalk. So, without further ado, we present the most stylish gear to wear on a boat. The details really do count — surf’s up!
