We sent our mates Jai, Sean, Tito and JS down the south coast of NSW for waves, tunes and good times. With the new Autumn collection in tow, the boys dodged bushfires and security guards, wrote some songs and became lifelong buddies along the way.
Standout pieces from the collection include the quilted Boston Jacket and the Doc Corduroy Jacket for the colder days and nights, the soft yet durable Unrest Hemp Tee, the Shut Down Tee in a retro fit and stripe, and the Threads story which features a crew neck fleece sweater, a cosy pull on hoodie and standard fit tees in new colours.
Check out what the boys got up to below...
"The night ended up sorta classic, a great start to the trip. Max got kicked out of the event he hosted; by the security guards he was paying to be there. I don’t think Tito spoke more then 3 words the whole night, JS missed the ride home and ended up going to the Marlin to suss the local punk scene or something rather. And for me, well I ended up in the second dimension and my girlfriend found me passed out in the bathroom.
We all just hung out, surfed and cruised for the next few days. The waves were sorta
shitty, we did get one fun session at Pipe but it was a saturated flock (highly crowded). The next day we went to go back to Pipe but drove in to a horrific smoke cloud and the cops telling us the whole headland was on fire & to leave immediately. JS spiralled after this and decided he needed to get back to Byron ASAP so he booked a ticket and bailed that night.
The next day Tito Max and I left for Byron, finding out we all have real similar music tastes and Tito showing us some new French bands. The driving was easy and comical. We stayed in a bunch of different towns, got barely any waves over 1ft, lame. Drank a serious quantity of beer and had a real trippy sorta trip which created some fucking hilarious memorable memories." - Jai Walsh
"Well we drove a fuckload, ate the most pies we've ever met, drunk 500 beers or so... Listened to Tito's trippy French music and took in the scenery. Basically just had a heap of fun, definitely not a bad time. :)" - Max Zappas
