Interesting Human: Alex Knost

RVCA surf advocate, board shaper and Tomorrow’s Tulips band front-man  Alex Knost has conceptualized and designed the second season of his signature apparel collection. He freesurfs around the world all year in search of inspiration for these custom tailored styles.

Enjoy as he expresses his style on a RVCA surf trip in Costa Rica

Alex Knost’s Spring 13 Line joins the elements of classic, vintage-inspired workwear, retro color combos and paisley prints for a feel that reflects his own wardrobe to a T. Alex has an affinity for secondhand charm, relaxed fit knits and muted color palettes that pop with brightness. Shop his RVCA looks here.

Keep an eye out for this coastal vagabond, as he can usually be seen in a very creepy taupe van, searching for a wedge on the outskirts of Newport Beach with his buddy Ford Archbold.
