Take a spin in 70s-inspired gear thats anything but tame.
Take a cue from one of our favorite renegade writers, Hunter S. Thompson, and hit the road this summer—and why not get a little daring with your wardrobe while you’re at it? Pack your satchel (preferably of the well-worn leather variety) with all of the necessities: a notebook (for journaling, of course), a koozie (to keep that drink cool) and a good read (maybe an option by our writer of choice?). For your look, an update on classic ’70s staples just might be your best bet: chino shorts, Vans and a floralprinted button-up give you that East Coast vibe, while pale aviators and a wooden watch become stylish and practical accessories. Bon voyage!
