Parks and Recreation: Summertime Style.

Parks & Recreation: Snapback & Tees (Summer Edition).

(behind-the-scenes video of Parks & Recreation: Summertime Style)

Lately we've been so caught up in button-downs, selvedge denim, shawl collar cardigans, and double-breasted blazers that we've forgotten about the relaxed easiness of a simple t-shirt and shorts. So we pulled out the snapbacks, fresh tees, a variety of shorts, and matching accessories to help get you through what seems to be the hottest days of summertime. Also, introducing, Ben Swann #TeamTUG.

An afternoon at the park.

 

10:37AM// Eat breakfast.

11:15AM// Pack your bag for a good ole time at the park (yo-yo, check, frisbee, check, a ton of games to have old-fashion fun, check…).

11:45AM// Always say "hi" to the neighbors or passersby, wave or casually throw up deuces (aka peace sign).

Photoshoot Details: This was a fun shoot, despite the fact that it was so damn hot outside. It was all about snapbacks, t-shirts, and keeping it hella casual, but in a stylish way of course. So for the shirts: t-shirt.com came through for us– they have the sweetest collection of tees. And  you know whenever we do snapbacks we go for the original so American Needle hooked us up.Then to take things to another more intellectually casual level we knew we needed Native shoes... the Millers, the Howard, and the Corrado are the styles we used. Our model, Mr.Swann, wears a 12, and that's the size we got, but after wearing each pair it's safe to say its better to order 1/2 size to 1 size smaller, meaning an 11.5 or 11 would have fit better.  But again we love Natives because all the styles they have are classic, but they're just done in a unique material that take your look somewhere else. Oh, and can't forget the Timex watches (love the 'camper' style, I think everyone should have atleast 2).
