YOUR GOOD GUY TO KNOW
Wesley Francis, Surfer
True, Francis’s charmingly homey (seriously, it’s a house) surf shop isn’t in LA proper — you’ll find it a short jaunt south, in Costa Mesa. But once you get a load of the jaw-dropping, glossy wave sticks Almond Surfboards is churning out, you’ll be damn glad you made the trip. Handbuilt craftsmanship, timeless design and style that’ll look damn good hanging on your wall when it’s not carrying you across a wall of water.
And while you wouldn’t immediately peg a floral camp shirt like this as the most versatile item on the rack, you’ll find that not only can it add a dose of personality to a professional getup, but also anchor a decidedly fashion-forward ensemble as well. We’ll call it the sleeper go-to.
