During the brutal winter days of early 2013, I went with J. Crew to sunny Los Angeles for a few days of shooting on the beach. We did it again in the late winter of this year. Now that’s a tradition I can get behind. Here are some photos of the nice boys and girls we met and the places we saw. The good life in LA is pretty undeniable. But as long as I get my fix each winter, I’ll stick with Brooklyn.
