The Church of Warren Smith

Love or loathe, Warren Smith’s a true gent. He and modern pal, Dion Agius, run a lovely blog over at Proxy Noise, an outlet where they display their artfulness in a digital format. If you’ve a gauge of what goes on at Proxy, you’ll know Waz has something unique. Sure, he won’t eviscerate oncoming sections like your buddy Dane, but that don’t really matter. The man has many other skills and interests. His words, his magic and his board art always inspires, and ladies, he’s charming as hell. Waz just launched a new range with Insight. Known for his refreshing, shipshape choice of rags, it was a no brainer for them to collaborate, brain storm and give birth to Church, as it’s formally titled. Dapper as he is, Waz decided to give the plunging necklines a toss, spat in the face of denim shirts and brought things back to the bare minimum, placing greater importance on fabric and details. Below is an instructional video that breaks down colour pallets, flocking and a pair of trunks that’re, like, totally space proof. In case y’wanna go surf the cosmos. – Shin City [showvideo]
