This is one of those nostalgia-evoking collabs that truly gets us excited. It involves a heritage American surfing apparel company, and a contemporary NYC-based fashion brand, Club Monaco, which seems to soar to new menswear heights with each new collection.
Nancy and Walter Katin started heritage California brand, Katin Surf in the 1950s. They started off making canvas boat covers, and evolved into a surfing apparel brand producing tough surf wear capable of handling the most punishing waves. In 1976, they even launched the Katin Pro/Am Team Challenge at the Huntington Beach Pier, a contest that’s featured champions like Kelly Slater and Tom Curren. They’ve never looked back, and the brand is still forging ahead to this day.
The new Katin capsule collection with Club Monaco features a nice array of beach staples consisting of surf trunks, beach shorts, basic pocket tees and beach baseball hats. It’s expertly constructed beach wear with a nostalgic, retro appeal, and best of all, it’s made right here in the USA.
With summertime upon us, this new collection couldn’t have come at a better time. Take a look at the full collection at the Club Monaco shop.
