{STYLE WISE – SUMMER EDITION} Surf Dudes with Attitude!

EOF Vintage Menswear- Summer Style - 1930s Surf Buddies

While not all the gentlemen seen in this series have surf boards in their hands, they all undeniably possess that wicked spirit of the surf.

Spontaneous, effervescent, and wild like the waves, these are men of the past who have found sanctuary in the beauty of the ocean, and have used its energy to conjure an unbeatable swag, and undeniable attitude.

We love looking through what people wore, and especially with swimwear, not much has changed. Whether shorts or speedos, the look and style of these basics can still be found today.

And while we don’t wear the one-piece suits anymore, or have to swim with tank tops; these looks are more and more interesting and intriguing. There is some unique stuff there that just needs to come back (striped one-piece, graphic swim tanks) into play!

Especially with today’s climate, always drifting back to the past for inspiration, I’m sure we’ll be seeing more of these influences in the mix in coming years. If not, we’ll just have to take it on ourselves. Either way – it’s happening.

Check out the amazing pictures we’ve found for you all to get in the swing of Surf, and the attitude that makes it timeless beyond the bleached blonde hair and tubular moods we automatically associate with this lifestyle.

So what do you think? Have things changed that much? There’s no time value on fun in the sun, that’s for sure.

Share you favourite pics with your friends or post to  your own blog

and help showcase {vintage} summer style!!!

Hope you’re keeping cool.

It’s hot.

The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.

Two 1950s Rockabilly teens - vintage mens fashion style inspiration- the devil may care

“So, we’re just going to wait here all afternoon, or . . .?”

“They will come. They will come.”

More FASHION TIME TRAVELLING to come . . .

Time is but a rigid system of organization, and really doesn’t condemn a time period to a strict set of rules as most Costume and Clothing History likes to dictate. Certainly there are distinguishing details, but the 20th and 21st Centuries seem to travel in and out of each other, often seamlessly.
