Stab Recommends: Come In From The Cold Edition

Words by Stab

Winter’s the best, depending on where you reside. Groundswells groomed by stiff offshores, a pleasing lack of other humans, log fires, red wine, books and early nights. However, there comes a time each year when a man just wants to be warm. Morning, noon and night. If you’re situated in the southern hemisphere then enjoy it, your endless winter’s just about to begin. For the rest of us however, it’s time to prep for the sun’s warm embrace. Here’s a sweep of the thing that’ll be making our warmer months that little bit more streamlined.

Life’s Too Short To Wear Cheap Sunnies

You can tell the quality of a pair of shades as soon as you pick ’em up. These frames from Uk brand Sunspel (whose wares are well-worth a browse if you earn a bit or have reckless spending tendencies)  are perfectly weighted, and the hinges swing like the door on a new German car.

A (relatively) extravagant purchase you won’t regret.

Edgy Surf Tote

HL bought the rights to the infamous photo of KS mock sucking on Eddie Vedder’s death stick, so can do with it what they like. Pay tribute to the great man’s true ethos and fill with fresh produce.  

Keep the goat by your side at all times.

A Cooler That Won’t End Up In Landfill

It’s pretty simple really. Instead of last minute grabbing a polystyrene cooler, filling it with ice and beer, drinking said beer then sending the soggy cooler to clog up your local landfill pit for the next 500 years, you spend ten bucks on one of these, rinse it out when you’re done, reuse, and when you move house/run away to start a new life, you break it down and throw it in the recycling.

Keep your beverages (consciously) cool.



The Ones That Everyone Has, In Black

The mind boggles at how many pairs of these things the three stripes sold in the last few years. They’re comfy as all hell though, and once you slide in you’ll be in them all summer, guaranteed. All black too: “What are those?”

No substitute for comfort.

Linen Shirt, No Sleeze

Linen is the textile god’s gift to sun and salt-beaten skin. This Banks woven shirt’s the perfect solution to those who like the feel of soft, breezy fabric on the torso, but don’t want to look like Rod Stewart holidaying in the Amalfi.

Drape yourself in something cool ‘n soft.
