THE LINEUP / WASHED UP: CONCORDIA, TX

For this month’s In The Lineup / Washed Up, we’re doing it Texas style (whatever that means). Jake S., an undergrad at Concordia gives us the lowdown on what’s up and out at his campus. And for all you girls who might be taking a shining to Jake, he plans on becoming a surgeon–being that women and the human anatomy are among his prime interests and all. And when he’s not studying naked bodies, you might find him playing football, going to the beach, going out on the boat, wakeboarding, surfing, or going to concerts.

ENHANCE YOUR JEAN POOL

We know that in between your musings on viable Middle East exit strategies and standouts in the NFL pre-season, you’ve been wondering what the key denim looks for fall will be. We worry no more, because we’re here to get you dialed in. To nail the trends you gotta think faded, cuffed or colored. A little something for everyone if you will. If you’re still confused, just think of your preferred pastimes. Are you a loadie? Then go for the jeans that are as bleached out as your carpet stains. While other kids were hooked on Spider Man, did you secretly wish that Fonzi was your real dad? By all accounts you should be rocking the rockabilly roll. But if you’re more the type that still dreams you can one day be a roadie for the Crue, then we highly suggest you get yourself into a pair of tighty whities. Well, we hoped we solved you denim dilemma. Next week we debate the ongoing agony of hair gel vs. flat irons.

Perhaps it’s the fact that it’s been 90-degrees + for two weeks, or maybe it’s all those girls in leotards, but in any case we’re in the mood to give. For a limited time you can save 20% on all regular priced backpacks and luggage. Just don’t say we never did anything for you.

NEW TO SWELL: FEW

For a company of few (ha ha) words, their styles send a huge message. FEW New Zealand has become a surf apparel staple abroad, and is on track to do the same in the US. And it’s easy to see why. Focusing on bold colors and prints paired with classic and sexy silhouettes, they’re making a major impact on fashionistas who recognize less is more. Intrigued? You should be. And if you want to know more, we strongly recommend picking up two or three pieces to get their whole story. If you look closely, you’ll find hidden messages about their philosophy built into each garment. Better move fast though, ’cause it looks like their secret is already out.
