Maybe we've still got Top Gun fever, but we're really liking these shades. There's a reason why classics endure. They work. A pair of aviators will suit a multitude of face shapes and look both modern and nostalgic. And Todd Snyder has just teamed up with Randolph, who has been making standard issue eyewear for U.S. military pilots and NASA astronauts since 1982. For this exclusive take on their authentic Aviator, the frames are military olive in a matte finish with bayonet temples and polarized lenses. They're masculine, comfortable and do a hell of a job protecting your eyes—what more could you ask for?

When you're just wearing trunks, your towel can say a lot about you. Make sure you've got a nice one—be it at the beach, the pool or just hanging out at the park. Slowtide partners with artists, photographers, designers and brands to create unique prints for the towels, all while maintaining premium quality. This graphic palm design is at once classic and yet incredibly modern.

Your skin need hydration, especially in the summer. But let's be real, the act of lotioning up when it's hot out can sometimes be a drag. Especially when it feels like it's just sitting on top of your skin instead of soaking in. But this new gel cream hybrid from Soft Services makes moisturizing incredibly fast and easy. Squirt a nickel-sized dollop into your hand and smooth it into your skin. It absorbs so fast, you can get dressed immediately after. Seriously. Skin is dry, soft and post-sun redness is soothed. Worth every penny.

These are shorts that are ready for anything. Literally. Filson and Birdwell are both known for their no-nonsense utilitarian clothing. They might not be brands that you anticipated collaborating, but that doesn't mean the end result isn't outstanding. These are the ultimate summer adventure shorts. Cut from Birdwell's comfortable four-way Surftstretch fabric, they're reinforced for durability and feature secure pockets and stainless steel hardware. To put it another way, they're basically indestructible. And if anything should happen, they come with Filson's lifetime guarantee.
