Eight Beach-Ready Chinos to Consider

0611Kempt-Tailored-Trunks-Brooks-Brothers-Oxford-Swim-TrunkWith summer Fridays, sojourns and sunshine abounding, we’re thinking up the best ways to get out of dodge and into a body of water, with minimal planning.

Less Angeles

Kiki de Montparnasse

Just another day at Kiki de Montparnasse

*'Tis the season of balanced consumerism in Los Angeles. A gift for others, a gift for yourself. And so on:*

Parke & Ronen: The winter collection of classic-with-a-twist menswear is going for 50% off this weekend. Mention our brother UrbanDaddy to get the discount now. 8012 1/2 Melrose Ave, 323-852-1635

Apartment 3: New and vintage pieces are marked down by 30-50% to celebrate yet another residence for this wandering store. Also, open vodka bar tonight. 1855 Industrial St. #103, 8-11pm tonight, 323-939-3853

Kiki de Montparnasse: Okay, one for the "gift for others" category. If you ask a salesgirl to take you to the boudoir, she'll show you the secret stash of 30%-off underthings—instead of slapping you. 8280 Melrose Ave, 323-951-9545

Lisa Kline: If you can brave the celebutantes shopping for the benefit of the Robertson Boulevard paparazzi posse, this mega-sale continues. Brands like Ever and Modern Amusement are cut by up to 70%. 140 Robertson Blvd, 310-246-0907
