It's that time of the year when we mentally check out and all thoughts lead to the nearest coastline. But what to wear? A big pair of shades, lots of sunscreen, and some rad board shorts from Greenlines, the unisex apparel brand that specializes in colorful beachwear for surfers and beach bums. 

Greenlines was founded by  Sam and Jerry Delaney,  Cohasset, Massachusetts natives who flawlessly merge mindfulness and killer style into clothes you'll be proud to wear.  The Greenlines-look focuses on classic surfer style – jogger-style board shorts, awning-striped trunks, and soft tees that feel like vintage treasures. The clothes are designed not only to look good but also for durability and comfort so they last through hours of wave riding (no chaffing or ill-fits). Committed to environmental friendliness, the Delaney brothers only use organic cotton, water-based dyes, and recycled polyester  (nearly two dozen plastic bottles are used to make each pair of shorts). Additionally, the company (which now resides in Atlantic Highlands, NJ) donates a portion of their profits to clean beach initiatives like the Surfrider Foundation and the Oceans Plastic Challenge. They’re also advocates of safe-water practices, providing swim shorts to lifeguards and lifeguard training camps along both American coastlines.
