My Beach Essentials: Adam Brown

The photographer-turned-Orlebar Brown designer lets us peek inside his smartly assembled summer tote.

Adam Brown's crisp, expertly-tailored swim trunks, the cornerstone of his brand, Orlebar Brown, are as well suited to action-packed beach days as they are totally lazy ones—at least if the London-based designer's personal preferences are any indication.

Read on for the favorites of a man who hits the beach both for business and pleasure.
