Hot on the heels of the McCarren Park Topshop Mat Reveal comes this crucial list of strategies for surviving concerts in the pool. It's only for men, but they're the gender that needs more help, since women are pretty much expected to wear rompers anyway. A sample: "DON’T wear denim. No matter how high you cuff yours.

Think the opposite of camo cargo shorts." [A Continuous Lean]
