The Charleston Sun Shirt

It’s hot at the beach so be sure to pack something that blocks UV rays, dries quickly and keeps you cool. Far and away, our favorite is the MuskOx Charleston Performance Hoodie, a sun hoodie made for the summer. This shirt dominates the beach during the day and the evening so you’ll look good, stay cool, and be prepared for whatever the nightlife may have in store for you. Bonus: it’s got a fantastic loop to hold your sunglasses for those moments when you need to take off your sunglasses. What’s not to love?

Swim Trunks

You’re going to the beach so you need a pair of swim trunks -- it’s just that simple. You can never go wrong with a classic, refined, and timeless look -- stick with a mid-length trunk with a simple print or a solid color. Think goldilocks here: not too long, not too short, and pretty much all one color.

Beach Towels

Too many guys skip this step, but please trust us. You need *beach* towels, not bathroom towels you take to the beach. Beach towels are bigger and you want a big towel so you have plenty of room to lounge and relax. You don’t need anything glamorous but you need something that’s big enough to truly handle a trip to the beach. Our favorite? The classic 2-color striped towel.

Cross Country Henley

A true beach trip is sure to include a trip into town. The Cross Country Henley has you covered with a casual beach vibe that still looks sharp. With a little extra padding -- it will make lugging that chair or cooler on your shoulder just a little easier. Bonus: it's got a fantastic loop to hold your sunglasses for those moments when you need to take them off. How can you go wrong?

Sunscreen

You’re a guy. You don’t worry about sunscreen, right? Ugh. Stop. We know you’re cool and worry-free but you’ll look like a lobster if you wind up red. Plus skin cancer isn’t cool so do yourself a solid and put on some sunscreen. We know you can get weird about other people touching your back so get the spray and if that special someone appears then you can still ask them to rub it in. Pro tip: use a good sunscreen that covers the whole UV spectrum. We recommend Alba Botanica Hawaiian Sunscreen Coconut Clear Spray.

Wayfarer Sunglasses

Okay...there are a lot of great options when it comes to sunglasses, but we’re a big fan of Wayfarers. Why? They are classic, timeless, always look good & aren’t likely to give you those big weird bug eyes. Feel free to buy the less expensive shades from Amazon as long as they are polarized. You won’t feel as bad if you lose them that way. But -- did you know MuskOx summer shirts (like the Henley or the Charleston) have our signature sunglass loop to keep you from ever losing your sunglasses again? You can't go wrong.

Rope & Patch Hat

Protect your face from the sun and find a way to look good from sunrise to sunrise with the MuskOx Rope & Patch Hat. This hat is sure to please the rugged man who is excited about tackling the challenges of laying by the water, reading a book and enjoying a satisfying beverage.

Yeti Cooler

Keep your drinks cold. Don’t skimp here. You’ll feel like a king of the beach when you stroll up with your top shelf cooler.

Corona Beer

Even if it’s just for The Gram, you definitely need to enjoy a Corona with a lime at the beach. We say do what you can to enjoy summer because it won’t last long. And if you're out there sweating in the sun, make sure you've got a cold long neck doing the same.

Flip Flops

Skip the boat shoes and certainly anything with straps around your feet. We know you’ve got plenty of self-respect so keep it simple and rock the flip flops. That’s a true MuskOx man right there…

Baseball & Mitt

The football is too cliche...go ahead and dust off the baseball mitt for a game of catch. Sure, the baseball can be a little dangerous at the beach, but nobody ever said you get anywhere by playing it safe, right? Okay maybe ignore that thought, but we promise you’ll have fun throwing around a baseball at the beach.

Hydro Flask

Stay hydrated, friends. It doesn't matter what's in your bottle, but whatever it is, make sure your drink stays cold the whole time you're taking in the rays. And the MuskOx sticker on the bottle keeps you looking cool in the sun and the shade alike. If you follow these guidelines, we already know you'll look good. To make sure that you feel good, remember to hydrate.
