As summer fades, we welcome September, the best month to be a surfer. In an ode to the changing surf season, we’ve compiled the ultimate kit you need for the coming Autumn. From shackets to firepits and beanies to bomber jackets, it’s a carefully curated list that will make your month.
Globe Wanderer Shacket
Remember when you had to choose between a shirt or a jacket? Dark, dark times indeed. Like choosing a favourite child, or between a twin fin and a thruster. This fall you can have your cake and eat it in the Globe Wanderer Shacket.
Comfortable, durable, and eco-aware crafted, this versatile bad boy is made from 100% organic cotton and 15gsm brushed heavy-weight flannel. Available in traditional rhubarb colour way or navy it is also bleach and dye free as part of Globe’s range of sustainable evergreen men’s shirts (or jackets).
Snow Peak’s Pack & Carry Fireplace
The UK’s hottest, and driest, summer has come to pass. The low pressure systems are queuing up in the Atlantic, spraying swell, fresh salt-laden winds, and precious precipitation over the British Isles. It is a perfect time as the afternoons dwindle and before winter strikes, to build a fire and talk story. Snow Peak’s Pack & Carry Fireplace is a collapsible technological marvel that means you have the perfect option for home gatherings, or to take to less fortunate friends’ homes. The stainless steel design features vent holes for better airflow and four legs for stability. Weighing in at less than two kilograms this folds flat for easy transportation and storage and is a great-looking solution to one of human’s oldest, and greatest needs; drinking beer and toasting marshmallows around a fire.
Vans X Curren X Knost V Bomber Jacket and Trouser
We know the world needed a genderless head-to-toe collection. And who better to deliver it than Alex Knost and Lee-Ann Curren? In and out of the water they have spent their lives driving a unique approach to progression and inclusivity. Their “outside-the-lines” way of thinking has come to life in the new Vans X Curren X Knost Bomber Jacket. The flight satin boxy fit bomber jacket with DTM Sherpa collar, ticks every box and might just square the circle. And in for a penny in for a pant. In the same collection is the rhubarb trouser. Inspired by 1970s interiors and automotive design. It’s a classic chino pant that highlights a timeless aesthetic with retro flair. Mike dropped. September wardrobe sorted. Go and live your best life.
Dark Seas Red Cloud Beanie
The best thing about the end of summer? Apart from the better waves, lighter offshores, and the lack of crowds, traffic, and sunscreen, it’s the return of the beanie. Oh, hello, you skull-warming, fashion-enhancing old friend. And this autumn it’s time to be bold. The Dark Seas Red Cloud beanie with its waffle knit and cuff is the beacon that will transport you to better, colder, comfier times.
The Hydro Flask 12oz All Around Tumbler
Look, it’s controversial, I know, but fuck it, sometimes you have to speak truth to power. Iced coffee is amazing, but as the earth dilates sometime you just need a hot drink. Imagine exiting a lovely September surf, all cold of bone, but warm of heart, flush with adrenaline and exertion, and you pull out the brand new Hydro Flask 12oz All Around Tumbler, and it contains… iced coffee. I mean don’t get us wrong, the double-wall vacuum insulation would keep that coffee icey for 24 hours. But in autumn, you want warmth. Hot tea, scalding coffee, boiling Bovril. This Hydro Flask is your way is to fill, sip and savour. It’s the sun, the moon, the universe. And it fits in your dishwasher and car cup holder.
