What’s In Your Bag – Labor Day Weekend

Labor Day Weekend -Yes, it is the last unofficial weekend of summer. But, why not make the most of it? With a fun holiday ahead, here are some ideas to make your packing a bit easier.

Coach – The detachable shoulder strap makes this canvas and leather trimmed weekend bag perfect for getting your packing started.  A cell phone pocket along with three other pockets on the inside, keeps you a bit more organized. (We bet you can fit a beer in one of these pockets!)

Rodd & Gunn –  Yes, it’s ok when this plaid linen shirt is a bit wrinkled, they’re made that way. Paired with shorts or pants, this shirt is a great way to keep it looking fresh the end of summer.

Original Paperbacks – Washed corduroy is so damn comfortable. The St. Barts short definitely speaks to a relaxed and easy weekend.

Sebago – The Nantucket Slip-on has a built in comfort heel pad, so they’re very comfortable.  ‘No Socks Required’ and lightweight, this is the ultimate summer shoe.

Nike – The Dri FIT Touch Tailwind Singlet combines great technology with easy to wear and ultimately enjoy fabric.  The Nike tank is made with Dri Fit, wicking away moisture from the body.  Wear this tank for a morning run before the grill and margarita maker gets hectic.

Onia – This brand doesn’t believe in an old school baggy board short.  Instead, this well tailored, yet comfortable board short is a winner in the water, and out. Wear it around town, nobody will know that you are ready for a cannon ball.t

Tretorn for J. Press Sneakers – Now this is one cool collaboration! An iconic shoe brand paired with the ultimate prep retailer. With suede and canvas and a rubber sole, this classic shoe takes on a whole new twist.

Gitman Vintage –This 100% coton Cambridge Oxford cloth shirt gets better as it’s washed, and yet, it virtually indestructible. A stellar Pennsylvania based brand that continues to churn out the best shorts and shirts, decade after decade.

Tailor Vintage – Reversible shorts are the answer to traveling! Pack less, and have more wearing options, right?  Pattern reversing to solid, makes this the go to short.

Howe – A v-neck t-shirt in vintage black is a great way to bring a relaxed take on a classic.  100% cotton, and gets even better with time.

Joules – This British brand is rocking it hard Stateside. A cotton chino with a button-fly is a great option to roll your cuffs with any shoe for the weekend.  Made with a bit of stretch, this pant not only looks good, but gives you extra comfort.

Baxter of California – Pre-packed and TSA approved.  This navy blue nylon quilted dopp kit comes loaded with your weekend needs.  It includes a 2 oz. leak proof container of the following:  face wash, shampoo, shave cream, after shave balm and, moisturizer.  Just add your razor and go !

Filson – Finally, a place to empty your pockets when traveling. Filson has this perfect travel tray.  Made of canvas, and trimmed in leather, this is perfect for your keys, wallet, coins, and more.
