Father’s Day 2015: Stop the Chafe with Turq SwimBriefs! + GIVEAWAY!


turq_review_packagingWe are super excited to feature a product that will change every active guy’s wardrobe! If the guy in your life has ever dealt with painful chafing and you have been clueless on how to help, TURQ has solved all of your problems!

Built to get wet, TURQ is the ultimate sport brief engineered to empower active guys to Challenge Life without the Chafe. Great for swimmers, surfers, bikers, runners and more, TURQ will not disappoint. The Turq Swimbrief comes in youth (small to large) and adult sizes (x-small to x-large).

The swimbriefs are constructed with silver-infused, hydrophobic microfiber and patent-pending air-flow construction. The high spandex content (8%) and no seams help your guy forget he’s even wearing them! Great for hikers and even under wetsuits, Turq Swimbriefs are
non-chafing, quick-drying, anti-microbial and chlorine safe.

Turq Swimbriefs are shipped in minimal flat packaging, great for throwing in your suitcase on your next vacation or shipping across country. We are loving all of the color and pattern options and especially love how the decorative waistband peeks out above board shorts for a high-end look. The swimbriefs are super soft to the touch, your boys will want to wear them every day!

Turq SwimBriefs are available at select locations in Connecticut, New York, California, Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard, Florida and South Carolina. And now, Turqs can be found on THEGROMMET.com and Amazon.com.

Fashion Fridays: Bonobos Fall Style Challenge!


We recently partnered with the luxury men’s brand Bonobos for their Fall Style Challenge. We were given a choice of a few lifestyle shots of their blazer and men’s suit line and asked to design a coordinating fashion board. We chose The Nottingham Blazer for it’s sophisticated and approachable style. Our style story starts with a successful dad that has a fashionable wife, young daughter and newborn son. This is a perfect combo for holiday family pictures or parties.

Dwight Fenton, Bonobos VP of Design states “Fit is the most important detail for a suit. Marry that with classic color options and quality fabric, and you have a great looking, versatile suit for every occasion.” 

Fenton’s simple suit tips to find the right fit:
• Fit starts with the shoulders: The jacket should grab your shoulders snuggly but not be overly tight. If the shoulders fit, pretty much anything else can be adjusted.
• Length matters: To determine the appropriate length, you should be able to cup the bottom of the suit with your arms by your side.
• Show some shirt: A flexible but general rule of thumb is to have a quarter-inch of your shirt cuff showing. If you’re wearing a heavier cuff, like a French cuff, you may want to show a little more.

Here are the fashion picks and where you can purchase them: 1. BONOBOS The Nottingham Blazer, $398, 2. Mama’s & Papas Boys Limited Edition Houndstooth Blazer, $55.99, 3. Gap Oxford Button-up Bodysuit, $19.95, 4. Mally Designs Sailor Mally Mocs, $45.00, 5. Jacadi Infant Boys’ Stretch Corduroy Trousers, $56.00, 6. J. Crew Girls Cashmere Cardigan, $138.00, 7. J. Crew Girls Sequin Flower Dress in Organdy (glamorous pink), $99.99, 8. Stride Rite Mira, $49.00, 9. Sue Wong Pleated Bustier Embroidered Dress in Cobalt, $459.00, 10.
