Tropical shirts, like, the real gear sourced vintage in Hawaii, are so…surf!
And Volcom are so… twisted surf ! Ain’t that just a mix made in the heavens. These came in a freshly shucked pineapple. ‘Cause ain’t summer about gals, surfing and cocktails?
Stab: Talk me through the coconut packaging thing.
Joe: When we finished making the trunks here in Costa Mesa, we sent them down to Nick Boon who came up with the great idea for the coconut packaging. When I asked him why the coconut thing he said it was, and I’m writing from memory here, “What better way to present two partied-out vintage Hawaiian shirts that have had a bloody good time and plenty of drinks spilt over them over the past decade and been cut-up and sewn into a sick pair of trunks than a hollowed-out coconut with a straw and umbrella in them! It’s time for the after party!” You like? I think, genius!
How many hands did the trunk go through? Charlotte Kim is our expert fit and pattern maker. She supplied us with our patterns and cut-out the panels of fabric. Zenon Vergara, he is a pattern expert and he is also very talented on the sewing machine, so we had him construct the boardies for us. Brett Bayley was also an integral part of the process. Ashley Haag did a fantastic job shipping the shorts to Oz. Girl put those boardies in a box like a champ! I think the concept took longer than actually producing the shorts. It took us a week from buying the hawaiian shirts to having a finished product. They were built here at the main headquarters in Costa Mesa, California.
