You had planned to laze about by the sea all afternoon, on your towel, your deckchair, your sun deck. But a phone call changed all that: “Come on, let’s take a sailboat out today!” You naturally say yes…but what will you wear?
JUST IN CASE
It seems sunny for now, but the weather changes quickly at sea. To protect your person from sudden showers or unexpected winds, and to avoid regretting setting off inadequately clothed, slip on this flannel work shirt. It will shelter you from the elements, but won’t sulk if you eventually decide to remove it.
If indeed you make that decision, it will be a joy to reveal this cotton t-shirt, with its long sleeves and shirt-style cuffs. It is elegant, low-key and practical and, above all, will not restrict your freedom of movement, particularly while you are frantically cranking to raise or lower the mainsail.
For the lower half of your body, these flannel pants will be the ideal choice. Not only will the two cargo-style, patch pockets enhance your adventurous appeal, but they will easily hold the small distress beacon you always take with you when exploring the Big Blue. You’re right, one can never be too careful.
Boat shoes might have been a good choice for your feet. But these Playfields will give you so much more. First, because the soles practically guarantee you won’t slip on the deck. Second, because their stylish design will have you looking dolphin-smart and shark-chic.
A LONG TRIP
In the navy, sailors carry their belongings in a duffle bag. But your bag will be the most elegant of all. This tote bag in lightweight, foldable leather will effectively and stylishly carry everything you need for the afternoon. And maybe more. For who knows? The siren song of the sea may keep you from ever returning to home port.
