My first retail job experience came in 2002 when I worked at the Haul Over, a small surf shop in Nantucket. Although I spent most of my time on the beach and not working, I did take something away from the experience; Birdwell Beach Britches. These board shorts are the real deal. They aren’t trendy or flashy, just well made, simple and functional. They have been making them since 1961 so its safe to say these things are classic. Although they come in a few colors with different inseam options, you can’t go wrong. If you really want to kick it old school, spring for the “Short Basic” style with the rather short 14in outseam if you are confident showing a little thigh.

Another great thing about this company; their website. Talk about old school, its super basic and oh so out-dated but gets the job done. See you at the beach, brah!
