Upgrade Your Jean Pool


Guys, now that summer is coming to a close you’re going to have to rethink your morning get-up-and-go routine. What I mean is, kicking through your Taco Bell and Red Bull debris to find your least soiled  trunks and tees won’t pass muster anymore. The fall season always brings a heightened expectation of what’s considered appropriate about-town wear, and a good-fitting pair of jeans will be your #1 staple. Seriously, a solid pair of denim pants can be counted on more regularly than Christian Fletcher hitting up a 2-for-1 night in a Balinese tavern. But with the wide variety of cuts and styles available, selecting the right fit for your kit can get confusing. Not to worry, the blogger hotties at Breezy Mama have got the low down on what you need to throw down, with one of their top choices being Hurley’s Cleveland jean. Click here for the whole shebang.

As Seen In – BreezyMama.com


A few months ago we started to hear lots of chatter about a new blog that had all of Hollywood’s hot young moms in a thither—make that Twitter. Clever, contemporary and cool, BreezyMama.com had launched as the first and last word for yummy mummies in the know. Featuring profiles, product reviews, and sage advice, BreezyMama had even caught the attention of action sport’s elite with its close ties to the beach scene and surrounding lifestyles. And wouldn’t you know it, editors Chelsea and Alex (both Carlsbad, CA, natives) are big, big fans of Swell. In their recent “Products For Easy Beach Days” review, they were all over our Go Pro Digital Camera. Slick and compact, this waterproof gem attaches to your wrist and displays amazing high quality photos and video. Which comes in handy should you “find yourself running after your child, taking photos, and a wave takes her out… you won’t have to worry about saving your camera as you save her.”

How Did I Get Here? – L*Space’s Monica Wise


Since launching our hugely popular Featured Stylist program, we’ve been fortunate to meet countless talented and ambitious individuals. Designers, artists, stylists, photographers, journalists, models-each with a different story, but all sharing a common goal: To make a defying mark in fashion. But as lofty as their aspirations are, more daunting is finding the right path to get them there.
For world renowned designer Monica Wise, creator and owner of L*Space Swimwear, her tale is far from your text book example. In fact, some would say her journey began out in left field. But like so many other great self-made success stories, Monica’s underlying theme is that great expectations will always produce triumphant endings.
