The three young surfer dudes who founded Maui and Sons had initially set out to conquer people’s taste buds, launching Maui’s Chocolate Chip Cookies in 1980. But one too many burned batches led the trio to rethink their business strategy and switch from homemade sweets to clothing inspired by Southern California’s laid-back, sporty lifestyle. Owned by businessman Richard Harrington since 1989, Maui and Sons designs adult-size and kids' board shorts, bikinis, and other apparel done in bright, bold colors emblazoned with the company logo — which still resembles a chocolate chip cookie, in honor of the brand's origins.
Military gear is the foundation of modern men’s apparel — from the bomber jacket to the business suit. That influence is on full display in this selection of jackets, cargos, tees, and backpacks, in olive, khaki, brown, and, of course, camo. However enthused you are about its history, one thing’s for sure: This stuff just looks cool.
You’ve booked the flights, you’ve booked the hotel, now it’s time to get your wardrobe in order. Think bright, ocean-ready boardshorts and trunks from surfer-friendly brands Hurley and Maui and Sons, plus a slew of tees and tanks to complete your beach-bum look. Get it right, and the locals won’t even realize you’re not from around there.
Even if your office requires you to keep things understated, that’s no excuse not to loosen up a bit on the beach. Show your true colors with a pair of trunks from this smart selection, featuring brands like Orlebar Brown, Vanishing Elephant, Burkman Bros., and more.
