"I’ve been wearing Birdwells since the 1990s, and they’re my favorite surf shorts. I’ve been wanting to do something together for a while. When I went out to meet them in Southern California, I immediately sensed how cool they are, how genuine their mission is, and how committed they are to preserving the origins of the brand.”
Introducing our first co-branded collection with legendary surf brand Birdwell Beach Britches – an exclusive capsule comprised of board shorts, jacket, towel, tote, graphic tee and snapback caps. This collaboration with the iconic Santa Ana-based maker of hand cut-and-sewn goods represents a convergence of East Coast and West Coast, fusing tailored elements with California ease. Born in the surf and updated for a modern cosmopolitan lifestyle, Birdwell Beach Britches for Todd Snyder offers a fresh take on surf style that’s rooted in heritage and purpose-driven craftsmanship.
Birdwell has been making its coveted, timeless board shorts and other items since 1961, all by hand and all in the USA. Each pair of trunks is constructed from two layers of highly durable SurfNyl - a proprietary, naturally water repellant Nylon - with a triple lace closure button fly, adjustable waist tab closure, key loop and pocket drain hole, and clean finished with double- and triple-stitched seams. The new Birdwell Beach Britches for Todd Snyder shorts sport a classic Birdwell fit in exclusive styles and color ways, and feature a contrast wax back pocket, TS patch and co-branded label featuring Birdie, the Birdwell mascot.
