Me on the Beach


For us its just four hours away by car, and that's not bad. And the beach is a dream, as you can see by the above photo. A perfect 72 degree water temperature and clear as crystal on this early summer day.

You can stay in forever under this bright St Tropez sunshine.

You must understand that I hadn't left the hotel in this outfit—I'd had on white Bermudas. I felt I'd had enough sun, and this was the shirt. Forgive me.

But some in certain fashion worlds might have thought it intentional.

Luckily we weren't at the smartest of beach clubs.

We were at Aqua Club—more on this later!

The most attractive part of your attire is your attitude. You are happy, relaxed and always a gentleman....even on the beach!
Happy holiday in the sun and sand!

Great outfit! You really do look as if you were having fun in a very beautiful place.

Very fashion forward outfit Paul! The colours complement each other but I would change the size of the pattern of either the shorts or shirt.If everything is the same size, the eye won't know what to pay attention to, so you can overwhelm your audience. Your attitude is the winner though!

This is perfect, after all the real Saint Tropez is about free thinking and creative...dressing. Enjoy! I do miss my summers in Saint Tropez...

Most amusing, Paul! In some circles here in degraded seaside resorts, men of a certain age can be seen wearing cheap matching shorts and short-sleeved shirts in the same loud print, known as Cabana ensembles. Usually worn with white cotton tube socks pulled halfway up the calf, and--perhaps--black street shoes. Top it off with a porkpie hat in a discordant color, and cheap sunglasses, and there you have it--elegance personified!

your sartorial splendor commends you as one that can role with the tide. it has shades of the old prep that you once were, I remember that post. pgt
