Fair Harbor is getting that summer feeling started early this month with a new collaboration with BarTaco.

The duo has released a pair of signature BarTaco shorts just in time for Cinco de Mayo. This collaboration is BarTaco’s first with a clothing company and Fair Harbor’s first with a restaurant. Both brands are committed to sustainability and inspired by the nostalgic summer seaside vibes.

“Fair Harbor was inspired by our childhood summers spent on the beach, swimming all day and chowing down on local tacos from the fish stand at night,” said Jake and Caroline Danehy, co-founders and owners of Fair Harbor. “That’s why our collaboration with BarTaco has been a natural fit from the start. Both our brands evolved from a love of the ocean and an appreciation for what makes the coastal lifestyle so great.”
