13 Summer-Ready, Beachside Essentials Just For the Dudes

Last week, we did our beach round-up for the ladies, but guys, don't think we forgot about you. Whether you're the civilized type who enjoys sitting down on the sand with a good book and a little game of bocce, or of a more rugged disposition who prefers to surf and pick up girls while you're at it, you won't want to leave home without our round-up of shoes, shorts, sunglasses, and a bag to stash it all in. (Note to the Ivy boys who are doing their rowdy Montauk party this weekend: Copious amounts of booze not included.)
