These shorts are part of the capsule we designed in creative partnership with our friends at Agua Mágica

It imagines the outfit of a modern day 'mayordomo' - an honored role in Oaxaca dating back to the early 16th century. The mayordomo is bestowed with a great responsibility: to keep the mezcal flowing and the festivities alive. Salud!

Make it the ideal sipping set with the matching shirt and bucket hat.

Organic Cotton Terry Cloth (230 gsm) 

 The cabana set was a common sight on beaches across the coasts of the USA and Europe in the 1950's and 60's.  
Our very first dark cabana set, evoking the embers in which the agave is cooked and and the nights enriched by sipping mezcal.
 Embroidery of Zapotec head.  
 An elasticized back is linked to a drawstring.  
 Edge stitching as a nod to the embroidery craft for which Oaxaca is famous. 
 Zipper and bamboo button closure.  
Piped side seams and pockets.

These days, it seems like Manhattan is an island afloat on a proverbial sea of mezcal with new brands popping up left and right almost daily. Here's why Agua Mágica stole our attention, our palettes, and our hearts.

We first encountered Agua Mágica at their New York launch party and were taken by their vibrant celebration of Oaxacan culture through the lens of magical realism. Candles were ablaze everywhere (fire hazard be damned!), male Agua Mágica staff wore dresses in keeping with 'muxe' tradition, and neon Zapotec iconography flooded the space in an eerie green glow. When it came to sampling the goods, it was love at first copita - delicious in its smokey splendor!

The story only got better when we were given the opportunity to peek behind the curtain. We admired how Agua Mágica's Mexican-founded team has built a real partnership with its Maestro Mezcalero, Don Rogelio. He is a true friend and drinking companion. He is paid premiums above the industry, in turn allowing him to pay higher wages to farmers, and reinvest in the palenque. Agua Magica also donates 5% of its yearly profits to fund mezcal certifications for other small producers to keep traditional production alive in the San Juan del Río.

Finally, Agua Mágica is determined to redefine mezcal consumption as a measured exploration of taste and appreciation of artisanal knowledge - more akin to drinking wine than traditional spirits. Sipping the spirit neat and teaching the consumer to tune into its unique properties keeps mezcal from becoming an industrialized commodity and preserves the artisanal tradition of Oaxacans.
