Everyone's favorite distressed top for the beach. The phrase "Beach bum" is screen printed by hand in a newspaper font. The print is meant to be faded to create that beach-worn look. The boxy fit body is slightly cropped and made extra slouchy with the dropped shoulder.

Knit from our soft, lightweight, and breathable cotton blend yarn.

Measurements for S/M:

  • Chest Width (1" down from armholes): 25"
  • Length (from highest point shoulder to hem): 22"

Composition: 60% cotton, 40% acrylic


While our Knits are Machine Washable, we recommend minimal washing, as all knits will naturally wear from friction. Wash on delicate cycle with WOOLITE Gentle soap, using a laundry bag. Please see "How do I wash my new item?" in our FAQs for more tips.

Beach Bound Soon!

The "Beach Bum" crew sweater is my 3rd sweater from Wooden Ships. I bought it because I'll be heading to a warm beach vacation soon. It's very cute and distressed nicely which I love, but still well made of course. It's just light enough for the beach and will make a great cover for a bathing suit or a nice sweater to wear out with a cami underneath. If you are a beach bum like me, I suggest you get this sweater. All of my Wooden Ships sweaters have held up well in washes/ldrying and still look like new.

Beach Bag Must Have

If you are headed to the beach this is a must have for your bag! Perfect when it cools off at night. Super soft, cozy and everyone will ask "where did you get that?"

New Favorite!

I've had my eye on the Beach Bum sweater for awhile. I finally 'took-the-plunge' and I am so glad I did! The sweater is super-cute, cozy, and looks especially cool with my cut-off denim shorts. This is my third Wooden Ships sweater and it is my new favorite sweater!

We are honored it's your new favorite sweater Karla! Feel free to send us pix of how you style it with your denim shorts : )

Length and Width.

  1. We measure width at the chest,
    1" down from the armholes.
  2. We measure length from the
    highest point, straight down.

Our knits tend to run big, so we
generally recommend sizing down
if you are in between sizes.

We make-to-order and can help you
decide the right size for you.
