Yes, this happened.

Most of the people we met on the S.S. Coachella had never been on a cruise before. Like us, they weren't so sure what to pack or how to dress for three days of awkwardly saying hi to their favorite bands at a floating city on the sea. But, like the festival, the fans also brought their desert style to cruisin' with mixed results.

We could sit here and talk about all the "types" of people who sailed out to Nassau, but really, we'd rather just show you. These are the most memorable fashion moments we caught on the maiden voyage of the S.S. Coachella. Get your eyebrows ready to raise.

10. Best Shorts of All Time

Onstage, Nick Offer of !!! is like a forest fire on a windy day. The heat off his thrusting pelvis is intoxicating. He is the party. And man, does this guy love his short shorts! As you can see, the ones he wore on the ship have the cover of the Rolling Stones' Some Girls on them. These are actually the best shorts ever made.

9. Totally to Tie Dye for

Can we just say that these two dudes in tie-dye jumpers are wearing Keds and Toms? We cannot think of less ravery shoes to match with these adolescent Burning Man ensembles. They look like giant toddlers with fanny packs.

  • Permanent Residents

    San Francisco is not just skin deep to these folks — it's a permanent resident of their bodies and souls. They may be scattered far and wide — everywhere from Bernal Heights to Brooklyn, El Paso, Tokyo, and beyond — but the one thing these self-defined San Franciscans all share is a deep commitment to the city by the Bay.
