Beach Breaker / Olive Drab Ripstop
Although inspired by classic college football windbreakers, the Beach Breaker was actually made in honor of intrepid East Coast surfers. For those who don't know: the only kind of surf we have near NYC comes from beach breaks, which means we spend a lot of early mornings standing on the cold sand, staring out at the horizon, and waiting for the wind to bring the waves in just right . . . before we commit to the wetsuit. The Battenwear Beach Breaker is the perfect standing-on-the-beach, staring-longingly jacket. It does not hurt that, while standing there, you kind of look like an old-school, bad-ass football coach.
Fabric Notes:Â For SS23, we are using one of our favorite fabrics, a ripstop cotton. Military fabric engineers developed ripstop fabrics during WWII, using double warp and weft threads woven into a crosshatch pattern which is resistant to tearing and ripping. This crosshatch construction makes the fabric feel heavier, but this particular ripstop is only 6.5 oz, making it lightweight while still durable.
