Cool Dads™ | It’s Hot as Shit Out

Welcome to Cool Dads™, a series in which our resident cool dad, Nick Grant, helps us all get dressed.

I am all for getting my son outside and enjoying Mother Nature, but Mother Nature has been a real dickhead with this weather lately. How does she go fixin’ herself to allow a whole-ass week of low- to mid-90s with no breeze and 300% humidity?

So, if we are going to be outside for longer than 10 seconds, obviously, water is involved. A lake. Pool. Sprinklers. SOME sort of H2O. And that means some stylish trunks that can be worn in and out of the water, plus a camp collar shirt because duh. And, since these days the less clothes the better, an eccentric cross-body bag and beach towel that stands out a bit are a good way to not look like a total n00b on a scorcher. And lastly, a nice slip-on sneaker that you probably should avoid getting water on because not EVERYTHING can be functional, okay?
