I was asked by the legends at BATHER how I'd feel about collaborating with them on some limited edition boardies for summer. As some will know, I fucking love summer and I abso-fucking-lutely wanted to work with them on producing some rad shorties. They came had a couple beers with me at the studio and we talked about shorts, repeat-patterns and the physics of how beach-sand can literally make it's way anywhere.
We worked on two colour-ways, each with a different pattern.
A black pair with a prison theme. Skulls, shanks and traditional jail-tatts.
And a blue pair, which had a more simplified skull and shank pattern.
I got my hands on a pair of each and they're great shorts. They've done a really nice job with the print and the material. And it was really fun working on my first repeat pattern. I'd love to try more now that I've got my head around it.
They're currently available from General Pants Co. And as Australian summer is coming to an end, they've only got a few left in each size. So a good time for international-folks to grab them as the rest of the world heats up. Here's the links:
