Sand Ho
Your Beach Experience, Upgraded

You have T-minus 24 days until Labor Day. Which means your chances to hit the beach are running out. But before you rush off to the Rockaways or the Hamptons or the crystalline shores of East River Park, you might want to pick up this stuff...

UD - These Dapper Woven Slippers

FOR THE HOT SAND

These Dapper Woven Slippers

The standby: Burning the bottoms of your feet. (Or suffering the indignities of $2 CVS flip-flops.)
The upgrade: Draping your feet in terry cloth.
The icon: Paul Newman at Cannes. Never a bad role model.
411:
Rivieras Classic Vert Slip On, $85, Carson Street Clothiers, 63 Crosby St (between Broome and Spring), 212-925-2627
UD - These Daring Swim Trunks

FOR YOUR FANS

These Daring Swim Trunks

The standby: Non-daring swim trunks.
The upgrade: These immodestly cut French shorts. Because you didn’t do power squats all summer for fun.
The icon: Alain Delon. Or anyone else photographed next to a bikini-clad Brigitte Bardot in the ’60s.
411:
AMI Robinson Les Bains Saint Martin Trunk, $153, Swords-Smith, 98 S 4th St (between Bedford and Berry), Brooklyn, 347-599-2969
UD - This Legit Oyster Knife

FOR THE FRESH CATCH

This Legit Oyster Knife

The standby: Best case: a screwdriver. Worst case: giving up and ordering in pizza instead.
The upgrade: This thing, specifically designed to open local bivalves like Blue Points and Naked Cowboys.
The icon: Um... drawing a blank on this one. Maybe get Daniel Craig or someone to do an oyster-shucking movie? Thanks.
411:
New York Oyster Knife, $13, The Brooklyn Kitchen, 100 Frost St (between Manhattan and Leonard), Brooklyn, 718-389-2982
UD - This Seersucker Notebook

FOR THE WRITTEN WORD

This Seersucker Notebook

The standby: Not bringing a notebook to the beach.
The upgrade: This thing, made out of the most summery fabric imaginable by tie guru Alexander Olch.
The icon: A Southern lawyer. But in notebook form.
411:
Seersucker Detective Notebook, $45, Alexander Olch, 14 Orchard St (between Canal and Hester), 212-925-2110
UD - This Grass Surf Mat

FOR THE RIDE HOME

This Grass Surf Mat

The standby: Sand everywhere. We mean everywhere.
The upgrade: This thing. It rolls up, feels like grass and staves off later bouts of sand-induced insanity.
The icon: Mr. Clean.
411:
Surf Grass, $29, Flklr Surf, 45 Orchard St (between Hester and Grand), 917-261-2401
UD - This Hawaiian Tote

FOR CARRYING IT ALL

This Hawaiian Tote

The standby: The first bag you find when digging through your closet.
The upgrade: This tough-ass bag. More precisely: this tough-ass bag with flowers all over it.
The icon: We could totally see Gosling carrying this thing. So let’s go with Gosling.
411:
The Hill-side Big Crazy Floral Print Tote Bag, $177, Hickoree’s Floor Two, 109 S 6th St (between Bedford and Berry), Brooklyn, 347-294-0005
