Glik’s Attends Surf Expo 2015 in Orlando, Florida

Every year in January, a group of our buyers attend the Surf Expo tradeshow in Orlando, Florida to check out the newest collections from some of our top apparel brands. The show includes over 2,000 booths with everything from apparel to surf hard goods. It also features a full line-up of fashion shows and product demonstrations. Compared to other tradeshows, Surf Expo has a laid back atmosphere that makes you feel like you are walking and shopping the pier in Southern California, even though it takes place inside a convention center!

This past week our buyers went to Surf Expo to see the new Fall lines for Fox, Quiksilver, Roxy, Hurley, Billabong, and Volcom. Up and coming brands like Amuse Society, Spirit, Rowdy Gentleman, and Fraternity Collection were also there to show us what they have in store for the upcoming seasons.

Here’s a look inside the show and a sneak peek of what’s to come at Glik’s!

Tropical Print for Him

We’re loving one of Spring 2013’s hottest trends: Tropical!  This easy, breezy tropical print will definitely have you in the mood to head to the beach.

This trend definitely has tropical roots. Be on the look out for patterns featuring leaves, animal prints, ikat, tie-dye, feathers, and bold birds. Key tropical colors will be reds, olive, gold, khaki, aqua blues, and bright shades of green. Important fabrics and materials for this trend are leather, chambray, linen, and light cottons.

This trend might be bold, but styling tropical print is pretty easy. Pair your printed top or bottom with simple solid color pieces that have a casual feel. Add some neon pop if you’re feeling bold like a watch, sunglasses, hat, or wristband.

 

Guys, this trend looks good on you so be bold and try a bit of tropical print to your wardrobe.

Real Men Wear Neon

News Flash: Men are no longer afraid to experiment with bright colors in their wardrobes!

For years guys have shied away from embracing their “stylish” side and stuck to the typical drab, basic neutrals.  Granted, there is nothing wrong with basic blacks, navys, whites, and tans, BUT a splash of color never hurt a man’s wardrobe.

As people are catching on to the oh-so-popular vintage thrift and resale trend, we’re beginning to see the re-emergence of neon brights and throwback pattern prints in men’s fashion.

Are you experiencing slight flashbacks to the 1980’s when this fad was popular but with less favorable cuts, lines, and color/print combinations? Jump back into the NOW please, and you will see more of a modern take on this trend with the introduction of more favorable fits and color combinations.

Expect to see…

Neons paired with basics.

Guys, mix up your basic color apparel by mixing in a pop of neon! Go for a tee like the One & Only Neon tee from Hurley and match it to a basic pair of shorts and sneaks. The vibrant neon hues look brighter when paired with darker basic colors.

Pops of Neon.

Are you still not comfortable with a bright, bold neon tee? Opt for a pop of neon within the graphic of a tee, a watch, and a wristband or with a fun pair of neon rimmed wayfarer sunglasses to add a little “oomph” to your outfit.

Whether out for a night out with the guys or just a day out by the water, a little pop of neon can take your “Joe Cool” style to a completely different level! Check out our neon selection at gliks.com or take a trip with a few friends over to any of our 56 Glik’s store locations nearest to you!

Another Fathers Day is just around the corner, and let’s face it, you don’t want to disappoint good ol’ dad again with another pair of boring socks, a cheesy necktie, or a sappy card. No way! This year is the year!

Your pulling out all the stops, and you’re ready to surprise and delight him with a gift that conveys how much you appreciate all those years he diligently watched over you and your not-so “awesome” decisions.

Want to show dad how awesome he really is?  No matter what kind of style he had, here are some amazing Father’s Day gift ideas to help jump-start you in your mission for the perfect gift for Dad.

Hybrid Shorts: You heard right. Whether he is on land or in the water with the fam., a pair of hybrid boardshorts is just the right thing to keep his simplistic style in check. No muss or fuss necessary. Hybrid shorts are made of the same material as regular boardshorts and provide the same function, but they look like a regular short. There is no need to change when going from water to land; all he needs to do is throw on a comfy tee and off you all go!

Printed Tees: Dads are hip and cool. They wear t-shirts from brands that represent their hobbies and interests. If dad is a fan of moto sports then a tee from Fox Racing will be right up his alley. If he is a casual fellow then brands like Hurley, 1897, and Billabong have casual prints or basic solid colors just for him.

Shorts: Keep it simple, just like your dad. It’s hot out, and I am sure he would appreciate an updated style on a classic pair of shorts to wear while out golfing with the guys. My suggestion would be a pair of twill flat front shorts from 1897 denim.

Boardshorts: Dad is an active man. He likes being outdoors doing manly stuff and is a sucker for water related activities. That is awesome! Update his (maybe) outdated boardshorts! A little color and graphic flare never hurt, especially if amazing comfort and top-notch functionality is at play.

Flip-Flops: No harm, no foul when flip-flops are involved. A sure way to a dad’s heart is though food, chores (done right) and something comfortable. I would aim my sights at his feet. Make them happy with a pair of comfy flip-flops, like the Beer Cozy from Sanuk. They even have camo for the dads who like to hunt.

Every dad is special. So show him how much you care with a great gift for Fathers Day! Be sure to look for any of these great gift ideas for dad online at gliks.com or visit a Glik’s store location nearest to you!

Go Sleeveless {Tank Tops}

I have always wondered whether men can get away with wearing tank tops? Once upon a time, this invoked thoughts of men with big bellies wearing thin white ribbed “wife-beaters” soiled with dirt, grease stains and smeared with food smudges where hands have been wiped. These images would come to mind and I would get this unsettling feeling of disgust. Nice visual, right?

Good news. They aren’t just considered underwear anymore. Men’s tank tops have come a long way since the “wife-beater” days. I was never a fan of that name anyway. Now men’s tanks come in all kinds of fabrics, colors and styles and they have become an essential in men’s basic summer fashion.

A men’s tank can be worn in the summer with a pair of shorts, boardshorts, twill pant or jeans. As far as footwear goes, tanks can work well with flip flops, boat shoes and sneakers.

Tank tops made from cotton or cotton blends are preferred most over other types but do not count jersey out. This is most likely due to the feel of the material. Nothing is better than a super soft, casual tank that feels barely there.

Retro Striped Tank

Hurley Mooney Pocket Tank

As far as construction is concerned, tank tops are designed either like a common sleeveless shirt, where the armhole is more “fitted”, or can be styled having a low and open hole where the armpit and parts of the torso can be seen.  I am seeing more of a square, straight cut fit trending as well.  This means that men’s tanks are not going to be as fitted versus an athletic tank, which is ment for working out.

Fox Enterprize Jersey Tank

Hurley Rigged Tank

Key styles that are trending this summer are horizontal, tonal, and wide stripes .You will also see allot of Aztec prints, bright colors, graphic logos and retro designs.

NEFF Ripper Tank

White Stripe Retro Tank

Make no mistake about it.  Men’s tank tops are basic versatile essentials. Plus, wearing them is an amazing way of cooling down from summer’s heat when you’re out enjoying the weather.

Guys, you can be stylish this Cinco de Mayo weekend by pairing a tank with a pair of shorts, flip flops, your favorite pair of sunglasses and add a little extra “Joe Cool” to your look with a hat.

You’ve worn them under your wovens and tees for so long, now just wear them on their own! With brands like Hurley, Billabong, Fox and Neff coming out with some rad tank styles this summer, I can promise that you can’t go wrong! Go ahead and stop by any of your local Glik’s store locations or check us out online at gliks.com for any of your summer essentials.

Going Green for St. Patty’s Day

We understand that you just packed away all your glitter, feathers and beads from Mardi Gras. But, St. Patrick’s Day is almost upon us and you’ve got some green you need to be getting out! Yes, just like when you were in elementary school, we will be on the look out along with many others for that poor clueless soul who forgot about the pinching rule.

So, just to be sure you are prepared for this upcoming holiday we’ve decided to create a list of must haves!

Make sure everyone sees your St. Patty’s spirit when you’re wearing a pair of bold kelly green or lime green jeggings from our ever-favorite Flying Monkey.

Not so sure about the green jeggings? That’s okay; nothing is better than a super chic St. Patrick’s Day green dress like this one from Hello Miss.

Easiest thing for a girl to do is paint her nails a lucky shade of green like Here Today… Aragon Tomorrow from OPI.

It’s as simple as a St. Patrick’s Day t-shirt for the men. No, really, he can rep his favorite brand and his holiday spirit.

O’Neill Dublin St Pats Tee

O’Neill Dublin St Pats Tee

Hurley Paddy Skull St. Pats Tee

T-shirts are great under hoodies, zip-ups or if the weather is nice just by themselves with a good pair of denim jeans.

A perfect accessory for that not-so holiday guy is a St. Patrick’s Day hat, like the O’Neill Dublin St Pats Hat

Even better, opt for a pop of green in your sneaks like the Osiris NYC 83.

So, go out, enjoy all that is Irish this St. Patrick’s Day. Eat your corned beef-n- cabbage at the pub; turn up your Dropkick Murphy’s playlist and rage hard. If you happen to be hurting in the St Patrick’s Day apparel department you can find any of these items online at gliks.com or any Glik’s store location nearest to you.

BOOM! Hurley Phantom Boardshorts are Dynamite

Okay, so what if summer isn’t “official” til after Memorial Day. There should be no reason why you can’t be checking out all the awesome boardshorts trending right now. Consider it a great thing that you’re being ‘prepared’ for fun, sun and FINALLY getting to jump into that lake, pool, ocean or whatever you’ve been imaging while submerging yourself in the bathtub this winter.

You all know who Hurley is right? Hope so, because they’re pretty popular and if you haven’t noticed yet, Hurley is rocking the boardshort universe right now with their Phantom Boardshorts line.

4X Winner of the SIMA (Surf Industry Manufacturers Association) boardshort of the year award!

To give you an idea of just who all thinks the Phantom boardshorts are cool…

Oh My GOSH! Is that Justin Bieber reppin a pair of Hurley Phantom 4D boardshorts? Sing its praise Biebs!

What a catch Tom Brady! No, we aren’t referring to Gisele, sorry. It’s the touchdown he made when he chose to wear the Hurley Phantom plaid Puerto Rico boardshorts.

Why is the Hurley Phantom Boardshort so cool?

Aside from the Phantom’s awesome graphics and vibrant coloring, this boardshort is constructed like a European sports car; top of the line performance, speed and slick style.

Phantom 4-Way Stretch

Almost all of the Phantom boardshorts are 60% stretch or more. The great thing about this is that it proves the Phantom is more durable in the water because it will flex and move with you, but it will not stretch out; loosing its shape. You feel protected while in the water, but you’re not inhibited by the boardshort.

Performance Water Repellency (PWR)

Hurley uses Nike Performance Water Repellency (PWR) technology for the Phantom boardshort. If you visit hurley.com this is explained really well. PWR is best-explained using umbrellas, no really; tons and tons of tiny umbrellas represent the water repellency of your Phantom boardshorts. The more of those super tiny umbrellas you have the better the water repellency of your boardshorts and the softer the fabric is. Voila! Less chaffing, meaning no uncomfortable rashes for you Mr. Water enthusiast.

Optimum Weight

This cool feature ties in with the PWR really well. Imagine carrying a full bucket of water. Now, imagine if you were wearing that full bucket of water. Get the idea? Back to the umbrellas again. Those little guys are really doing their job when you get in the water by shedding that water away, so that the Phantom maintains its “optimum weight” even when your in the water providing a flexible, quicker, more agile boardshort.

The Phantom Boardshort is made of recycled material

Got to give them props for going green. Hurley Phantom boardshorts are made from recycled PET bottles; exactly 12 water bottles go into making each pair of Phantom boardshorts. Kudos to Hurley for making an impact by doing something sustainable.

Have we convinced you? Are you foaming at the mouth because you’re hungry for more Hurley Phantom boardshorts like Dimension boardshort featured above?

Maybe the horizontal stripes featured on the Hurley Phantom Horizon boardshort is more of your taste.

But, whatever your flavor is, summer is quickly approaching and the Hurley Phantom boardshort as well as Glik’s has all your style needs. Visit gliks.com or any Glik’s store location nearest to you!
