It’s hard not to get excited about a new Paul Rudd movie — even when the dude is playing opposite of Jennifer Aniston. In his latest — directed by David Wain (Wet Hot American Summer! Role Models!) and produced by Judd Apatow (every man-child comedy ever!) — Rudd’s character George trades life as a Manhattan power player for some time at a hippy-dippy commune that they thought was a B&B. Fingers crossed, laughs ensue. Here are our suggestions for what he should put on when he opts to wear clothes at all.

With its satin detailing, this Burkman Bros. button-down is like a blue banker shirt on opium.

Amidst the hijinx, there will likely be heartfelt conversations near the dock, and for those, this reversible Warriors of Radness hoodie will come in handy.

These Apolis trunks will prove useful until George is comfortable splashing around with the nudists.

You can’t really bring a roller bag to this sort of place. A Makr linen-and-leather weekender is much more apropos.

Nothing says “midlife-crisis” like a Miansai bracelet.

God knows these Common Projects sneakers will reek by the fourth day sans shower, but, hey, at least they’ll look good.
