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).
11:51AM// Look both ways before crossing the street.
12:03PM// Keep cool and be nostalgic– buy a popsicle from the ice cream man.
12:19PM// Sit on a bench (in the shade of course), people watch, and ponder upon life.
12:43PM// Play frisbee with a friend. (or any other park-friendly sport to your liking)
1:42PM// Take a breather and relax before heading home, or to your next destination.

Most of you know chambray is an essential. But we're taking it up a notch this Spring/Summer and taking chambray to our shoes, jackets, and accessories. (Random Fact: Though seemingly so American, chambray was actually originated in Cambria, France– which is also where it gets its name from; chambray is also known as cambric).

I think I'll deem this the easiest Spring/Summer 2011 trend to achieve, since all it calls for is black… all black everything. But of course we want to keep things better than the average over here at The Urban Gentlemen so when we rock this trend we prefer to use various shades and textures of black. Example: faded black shirt, rich black chinos, a black knit sweater, black leather braided belt, and grey/black oxfords.
