Where to find some nice surf tees? I know Leith has some, but I does anyone know some other brands?

If you don't mind the rather unhip and uncool "cheapo" connotation @ Weekday or Lands' End:

https://s7.landsend.com/is/image/LandsE … p;wid=1374

cheapo connotation is where it's at when it comes to t-shirts for me ...

last week's thin cotton Soffe t-shirt and very comfortable Adidas all-cotton raglan baseball shirt, though both non-striped, together were much cheaper than even Land's End's striper shown above, I was pleased ....
because I do take my t-shirts to the beach and there they get thrashed yo

and the shirts were not from Chi-na

getting back to stripes, my fave online surf shops almost always have some striped t-shirts available, and this year there have been nice ones by smaller labels as well as all the bigger surf brands, though some examples have thrown fashion elements in that disqualified them for me, for example, the contrasting front pocket is not my thing, but there's been a decent selection ... still is ....

some of the best boutique ones sold out but as I said they were out of my usual t-shirt range so no regrets

and Patagonia had nice ones but they were $50 which was goofy to me because I look around for free t-shirts and t-shirts that are $5

Re: Surf Ivy/ The west coast look

I bought them in M - there they are a little bit on the longer and looser side - very comfy, but not a vintage slim fit. More of a classic, straight fit - nothing tight. But after the first wear my wife put the red one accidentally into the tumble dryer and now it sits like such a shirt should fit, nearer to the body and a bit shorter - a little bit like Land's End Super Ts classic fit in S. Well, the blue one will be in the tumbler, too wink

Gonna post pics when I have.

I've been wanting it for a long time. Just moved to a city with a subway so I bought the audiobook, looking forward to starting it...

picked it up yesterday, had a store credit from my fave local independent bookseller, hope it's good, I've got no room here for anymore books that aren't A+++

but the reviews on this one ("without a doubt the finest surf book I've ever read," NYT) are so laudatory I've got my hopes up and I don't think it'll be a wipeout ....
