Back in Bermuda, and yes, many assume I live here now , and I’m not mad about it. This time I’m visiting the beautiful island for the 35th Annual America’s Cup presented by Louis Vuitton.

This is my second time at the America’s cup, third time in Bermuda (this year, I’m basically Bermudian.) We got to watch the semi-finals boat-side where New Zealand soared, and eventually won the title this past weekend. For the occasion I wore some of my favorite pieces from the Louis Vuitton’s America’s Cup collection.

The first night we arrived we had an opening dinner at the government house where we wined and dined along side the CEO of LV, Michael Burke, and some bermudian’s  politicians.

I called the Princess Hamilton my home for the weekend, one of my favorite hotels I’ve ever stayed at, which also has a really good restaurant called Marcus.

In between the races we hit the beautiful beaches, particularly The Hamilton’s beach which is a short 10 minute ride from the hotel.

Today, Tuesday, June 27th is National Sunglasses Day, a holiday that went viral last year and is the perfect day to show off your sunglasses, not to mention your other new summer essentials! This is The Vision Council’s fourth annual National Sunglasses Day, and to celebrate I’m sharing with you my shades from Kingsley Rowe. Summer is here and even though we waited close to 6 chilly-to-frigid months for it, it’s here to stay!

What most people tend to forget is the importance of sunglasses, and not because they tend to make you look good, hide your bags under your eyes or the fact you had a good time the night before, but their sole purpose is actually to protect your eyes from UV.

What is UV you ask?

The sun emits three kinds of radiation: UVA, UVB and UVC. While UVC is absorbed by the Earth’s atmosphere, UVB radiation is only partially blocked and can burn the skin and eyes. UVA rays are not filtered and cause the most damage to vision health, according to the World Health Organization. Direct sunlight is not the only source of danger from UVA and UVB radiation: both types of rays reflect off surfaces such as water, snow, sand, concrete and even buildings, which can increase exposure levels.

Protect your eyes with a pair of UV-protective shades and avoid: trouble seeing, sunburn of the eye, irritation and cancer , all of which are symptoms American adults report experiencing after prolonged exposure to the sun’s UV rays, according to a survey by The Vision Council.

Join me and get involved by grabbing your favorite pair and posting a selfie on your social media channels with the tags #SunglassSelfie and #NationalSunglassesDay!

Celebrating 10 years with Orlebar Brown #OBsAroundTheWorld

Orange Jack Swim Trunks, Yellow Setter Swim Trunks, Sammy Toweling Shirt –Orlebar Brown

This year marks the 10 year anniversary for the British swimwear brand, Orlebar Brown. To celebrate the new summer collection, OB Invited me to try out the new threads in sunny Bermuda. This was my second time visiting the small-yet-beatufiul island.

My first time I was exposed to Orlebar Brown was about 4 years ago in Project Las Vegas where I had the chance to customize a bespoke pair which I own till today! And, I’m not just saying this, but as a skinny guy that likes clothing fitted, I’ve never found a pair of swim trunks that fit me as well as OB.

The new collection features a new style called The “Jack,” a sporty rendition of the classic Bull Dog, see the orange trunks above, which is made out of a sporty and super lightweight nylon.

Orlebar Brown is considered the Ferraris and Bentleys of Swimwear. Their sartorial approach to swimwear set them a part from the rest of the market.  They recently launched a collaboration with Beautiful Destinations and DJ Sam Feldt.
