Dylan by True Grit

Introducing the item of the year from True Grit Clothing: sherpa Pullovers and Vests! These pullovers and vests are to die for! The ultra-plush fabric is perfect for the colder weather heading our way. The main question we receive about these hot items are regarding the sizing and the difference between True Grit and Dylan.

True Grit:

Built for men. True Grit pullovers are crafted with a squared hem and side slits. These men’s pullovers have an oversized fit and are perfect for layering. When men purchase True Grit pullovers, we recommend ordering their true size. For women ordering a True Grit pullover, we recommend ordering down one size for the perfect, slightly oversized fit.

Dylan by True Grit:

Dylan is the women’s brand made by True Grit clothing. The women’s Dylan pullovers have a slimmer fit and also feature side slits. Made in U.S. women’s sizing instead of junior’s, these pullovers are cut with an oversized construction. We recommend ordering your true size in these pullovers to receive the desired fit.

Gift Ideas for Dad

He was your first best friend, is always there to offer a helping hand, and gives the best advice (even if he throws in some corny dad humor along the way). A guy this great deserves a gift to match, so this Father’s Day skip the “World’s Greatest Dad” mug and surprise him with something he’ll really love.

gift ideas for dad 1. A shirt from Columbia Sportswear’s PFG line is a no-fail Father’s Day present. Not only will your dad be well-dressed, he’ll also become obsessed with how comfortable and durable these button up shirts are.

2. If he spends weekends out on the green or fishing on the lake, you can’t go wrong with giving him an Under Armour hat this year.

3. Summer days = lake days. Help him prepare for some serious summer fun with a pair of new boardshorts or swim trunks.

4. Buying himself nice clothes might not be at the top of your dad’s to-do list, so take the guesswork out of looking good and surprise him with an 1897 polo!

5. He needs shirts for his off days as well. Try a v-neck tee and help dad elevate his casual style.

6. Our 1897 shorts will be a home run, no matter your dad’s personal style. At only $29.90, these men’s shorts make for an affordable Father’s Day gift your wallet will love just as much as he does.

7. For the guy who already has everything, try a Yeti rambler! These personal drink coolers are tough, hard-wearing, and maintain ice twice as long as plastic tumblers — and it works just as well for hot beverages.

Introducing Vissla: A True Modern Surf Brand

Representing a diverse group of builders who are progressing the sport of surfing and a passion for creative thinking, Vissla is a modern surf apparel company to get stoked on. Not only does Vissla offer quality products, but they also exemplify a generation of creators and innovators.

How did Vissla get its start?

Vissla launched in Southern California on March of 2014 with a team of experienced industry leaders including Founder, President, and surfer Paul Naude.

What does the brand represent?

Vissla is a brand that represents creative freedom, a forward-thinking philosophy, and a generation of creators and innovators. We embrace the modern do-it-yourself attitude within surf culture, performance surfing, and craftsmanship as well as a surf-everything and ride-anything mentality.

vissla surf

What sets Vissla apart from other surf brands?

Vissla is a true modern surf brand. Gone are the days of sponsoring world tour athletes with huge paychecks. Modern day surfing is much more than that now and embraces the everyday free surfer who enjoys the sport for what it is. It was also important for Paul to build a brand that gave credit where it’s due to the unsung heroes of surf, aka the shapers and craftsman. After all, this sport wouldn’t be innovative without the builders behind the boards and we take pride in sponsoring some eclectic surfers in addition to shapers, artists and photographers.

Vissla Clothing

The brand has a diverse group of ambassadors. How are these guys chosen and what do they represent for the brand?

As mentioned above, we have built a team of ‘Creators & Innovators’ who truly set out to create and innovate. No other brands in our sport support the diverse group of builders that help progress the sport. Some great examples are Jeff McCallum from San Diego who makes the most beautiful and unique surfboards, Danny Hess who builds wooden boards in his woodshop in San Francisco, Donald Brink who experiments with asymmetrical and alternative surfboards, Travis Reynolds who creates beautiful vintage inspired boards in Santa Cruz, and last but not least, Hayden Cox of Haydenshapes who build some of the most innovative and modern surfboards in the market today. In addition to these craftsmen, we’ve made an effort to build a great team of photographers, artists and filmmakers, including Jack Coleman, known for his amazing super 8 surf films, Kenny Hurtado who is responsible for a lot of our lifestyle contemporary inspired photography, and Jeremiah Klein who is one of the best surf photographers in the sport today. Lastly, there’s the surfers on the team who are made up of just a diverse group as our craftsman. Our surfers range from performance surfers who are the epitome of the modern day free surfer like Eric Geiselman and Brendon Gibbens to free spirits like Bryce Young and Derrick Disney who can shape their own boards and also ride any type of surfboard like asymmetricals, twin fins or long boards.

vissla cosmic creek

Vissla has put on some pretty incredible events like the Self Shape Surf Contest and the Creators and Innovators Tours. Any upcoming events that our readers should get stoked about?

We put on an annual event called Cosmic Creek – a retro-style experience paying homage to an earlier era in surf. This year it will take place on May 21st & 22nd at Salt Creek Beach in Dana Point, California. Bringing us back to the alternative, more experimental time of the 1970’s, where surfboards ruled the shops, when shapers were gurus and surfing had a mystical soul about it. The event features three divisions including Locals, Creators & Innovators, and Pros. The Pros and local entrants meet at the waters edge with Beach Marshal Ralphie and “draw cards” prior to their heat for priority on the board selection. It truly comes down to the luck of the draw as to which board you will surf in your heat as Vissla supplies original 60’s and 70’s Single and Twin fin options for competitors to choose from. The Creators and Innovators division consists of local and legendary shapers from San Clemente to Laguna Beach including past contestants, Gary Larson of Hobie Surfboards, Dave/Dan Bohne of Infinity Surfboards, Donald Brink, and Ryan Engle to name just a few. While the local entrants and Pros ride original craft, the Creators & Innovators ride a craft they shaped themselves inspired by the 60’s and 70’s time period. There is also a Creators & Innovators tent where you can demo boards from Danny Hess, Haydenshapes, Donald Brink and Jeff McCallum. On Saturday night there is always a free concert on a giant grass hill with live music and this year the Allah Las will be playing. Music on the beach is provided both days by Reverberation DJs who play dusted off vinyl and our all-time favorites. Local vendors provide provisions at the event, from breakfast and lunch by local restaurant, Shwack to morning caffeine by Stumptown Coffee.

vissla cosmic creek

Cosmic Creek is open to the public and a true gathering of legends, groms, craftsmen and storytellers. Cosmic has become a soulful grassroots eclectic surf gathering, a celebration of heritage and platform to swap ideas about surfboards, music and art.

Yea.Nice Beanies |An Interview with Josh Sherman|

“It’s a Nice Life.”

12063151_166651353685936_1807592371_n

With an eclectic group of advocates and an overall brand purpose that goes far beyond making cool stocking hats, Yea.Nice is a company that deserves your attention. I was lucky enough to learn about where the brand started, their purpose, and their plans for the future from Josh Sherman, Co-founder and CEO, of the brand.

We’ll start off with an easy one. Can you tell our readers about Yea.Nice?

Yea.Nice focuses on producing high quality beanies through our 3 yarn stories; acrylic, wool, and cashmere. We also donate 1 polar fleece lined beanie to homeless shelters for every beanie sold on yeanice.com and through select retailers through our Beanies4Life program. We are heavily rooted in Action Sports as JJ Thomas (co-founder) and I used to be professional snowboarders, but we have grown into a lifestyle brand known for quality and expanded to having top musicians and celebrities wearing the brand.

You used to offer a wide assortment of other products. What caused the specific shift to your focus on beanies? Why not another product like gloves or face masks?

We looked into the market place and asked, what is our biggest opportunity? After a lot of research, we felt that no brand was producing a high quality beanie with an authentic message, with JJ and I spending 15+ years snowboarding in the harshest conditions it provides an authentic message our customers can connect with. Combine that with our Beanies4Life program that provides the homeless community with polar fleece lined beanies during the cold winter months we knew that our messaging and quality product could make us the category leader and that has been our mission since. To become a category leader, it would’ve been too distracting to have other categories, so we dropped them all and it’s worked for us.

As with most brands in the beginning stages, success for Yea.Nice didn’t happen over night. What’s the best advice that you could give to other young entrepreneurs?

Can you endure endless years of being sleep deprived? Can you sacrifice your personal time for friends, even loved ones? Are you ok with losing your own money, or living poor? If you said yes to all 3 can you stomach your business failing? If you answered yes to all 4, then maybe you have a chance at making your business successful.

It's a Nice Life

Was there anyone in particular along the way that gave you a piece of advice that has stuck with you? If so, what words of wisdom did they share?

I don’t have one piece of advice that has stuck with me, however I’ve had the opportunity to work directly with some phenomenal entrepreneurs. I’ve learned from them that there are 24 hours in a business day, not 8 and that every detail is important.

You have a diverse group of people representing your brand. Can you tell our readers about your advocates?

This last week was big for us, we had Justin Bieber wearing Yea.Nice on the Jimmy Fallon show, USA Today show and that was on the cover of every media station globally. We have pro snowboarders like Louie Vito, pro skaters like Boo Johnson, pro surfers like Sage Erickson, we have Klay Thompson from the NBA all wearing Yea.Nice and the list goes on. The support from our advocates and celebrities has been amazing. Why would they wear another beanie? Wearing our brand is a statement, a statement that you care about quality and helping others.

Justin Bieber and Jimmy Fallon

Do you find yourself being inspired by this group of guys during the design process?

Absolutely, they’re an inspiring group.

The Yea.Nice Beanies4Life program has become a huge success. What inspired you guys to create this one-for-one program? How does this success motivate your plans for the future of the program?

The origin of Beanies4Life was JJ and I used to fly out of Denver, CO airport and one time after coming in from a flight late at night we saw a homeless man outside and it must have been 10 degrees outside and we thought, how is he making it through the night? We did some research and discovered that thousands of homeless people were dying from hypothermia each year and we knew we had to do something. Shortly after we created Beanies4Life, a 1-for-1 program where every beanie sold on yeanice.com and with select retailers we match them and donate a polar fleece lined beanie to homeless shelters across the country. It’s an amazing program and we’re actually doing a huge donation next Friday. We have shut down skid row in Los Angeles from 5th – 6th street on Julian and we’re donating 5,000 polar fleece lined beanies and providing water and basic medical care. We’re on track to donate 75,000 beanies since its launch in 2014 by the end of this year and our goal is to continue to donate as many beanies as we can and help people in need.

Beanies4Life

You’ve traveled to a lot of really cool places to promote your brand and attend various trade shows. Do you use your travel experiences for inspiration for designs, fabrics, or new colorways?

Absolutely, you never turn off your product development mindset. Traveling is one of the best ways to open your mind to create better products.

yea.nice

What does the future look like for Yea.Nice?

To be the #1 beanie category leader with no one in our rear view mirror.

If you had to choose 3 words to sum up Yea.Nice, what would they be?

Change the world.
