"Outside of white button down oxford cloth shirts, Trickers brogues, 501s and Ray Ban Aviators, the single item of clothing that I have had in my closet consistently since 1982 is a pair of black and white checked Vans.

Think about what they do to a pair of chinos. I have worn them with black tie [many years ago], a khaki or gray suit, and since I hate flip flops, they are my go-to footwear choice at the beach. This pair is a limited edition I bought at Undefeated in Los Angeles—they are woven leather. But I keep a canvas pair at the beach.”
