I have plenty of durable plastic flip flops that can endure seawater and sand but I'm at a loss as to what else I should wear on an outing to the beach. Who sells cool swim trunks? I have an ugly pair of Abercrombie & Fitch trunks that I picked up several years ago. I've heard that stretchy waistbands are no good since they are unflattering to one's waist. What shirt should I wear? I despise Hawaiian shirts and refuse to wear tees. Maybe a linen short-sleeve button-up? But are those really any different from the dreaded NASA engineer short-sleeve shirt, other than fabric? I do love ties. Is there a way I could wear one? I have a few vintage polyester ones that can withstand getting wet.
