Part of the 10th-anniversary celebrations T.S. is rolling out over the next several months, the fresh take on the retro swim short arrives in a mix of sun-faded, stone-washed colorways cut from Birdwell's proprietary SurfNyl fabric. Each piece is constructed at their factory in Orange Country, right next to where it all began for the brand 60 years ago.
“I always get excited about designing for great American heritage brands, and Birdwell is the OG from the OC when it comes to swim trunks,” says Snyder. “Carrie Birdwell Mann sold her first pair of baggies even before The Beach Boys hit the charts. I’m also incredibly inspired by the way she looked at the cutting-edge technical fabrics of her day, including sailcloth, to create what would become the go-to swimsuit for Southern California surfers, lifeguards, and guys from Iowa who wanted to look like them.”
