011 - surf & turf

Updated: Sep 21, 2020

double-down at a discount with Onia.

My summer sartorial goals are as follows: 1) dress well, and 2) avoid sweating like a Russian athlete at a drug test. Difficult? Yes. Impossible? Never!

On scorching days when I want to throw in the towel (literally), I turn to Onia's line of lightweight, tailored swimwear for my salvation. My girlfriend tells me that I'm not allowed to wear a bathing suit as "real clothes" - but rules are made to be broken, right?

Translating directly to "ship" in Hebrew, Onia's ocean-inspired line ticks all the boxes for me: functional, elegant, well-constructed, and looks much more expensive than it actually is - for some reason, you can always find trunks at Nordstrom Rack for under $40 a pop - a small price to pay for a dry "undercarriage".

While I originally came for the trunks, I've definitely stayed for the shirts - Onia makes a fantastic range of distinctive warm-weather pieces that embody a "Bond at the Ocean Club" aesthetic without the expense-account price tag of Orlebar Brown. The attention to detail and quality are top-notch across the board, and each item possesses a unique texture and deep sheen that gives it a distinct personality and earns a place in your summer wardrobe.

And yes, I do give you permission to blame me if your mother-in-law asks why you're wearing a bathing suit to Sunday dinner.
