Scout Original is a Brooklyn brand that specializes in the purveying, restoration, and regeneration of fine quality vintage, rare, dead stock, and surplus pieces. Their pieces all display fine amounts of craftsmanship, detail, and loads of creativity.
Check out these vintage surf shorts that feature hand drawn memories of some mysterious lost paradise. Like images torn from a map; vignettes of hula girls, surfing pin-ups, tropical flowers, sea gulls and scrolls create the effect of a modern-day toile. These are the perfect pants for the park, beach, or a night on the town. Dress it up or dress it down – definitely perfect for that Paradise Found aura we fantasize about constantly.
This is just one example of the wicked works created by the dynamic team of Ryan Sneden and Gianna Galli. The pair draw from themes of nature, history, and popular culture with many iconographic pieces representative of popular archetypes in Americana (the rebel, the athlete, the hippie, the soldier, etc.).
Scout Original really goes to show that history isn’t just for dorks, and it’s about time we take to the relics laying around us and create something unique and remarkable with them!
