PICK OF THE WEEK: RIP CURL DIA HODDIE

 g00007wb.jpg

Hot pick of the week! Have you seen our Holiday catalog? If not, you’re missin’ out. Check out this sweet sweatshirt from Rip Curl featured on Page 9. (Also available in our online store.) It’s called the Rip Curl Dia sweatshirt and it’s blowin’ out so you better get it fast!  Although this hoodie just hit our shelves a few weeks ago, it’s already one of the top sellers in the category. With a basic plaid print and faux fur lining, it makes a powerful alliance with pants or cords. But how do you maximize its full potential? Glad you asked. Throw it down with long-sleeve tee, some rinced-wash, faded blue jeans, and a pair of modern desert boots. Simple, but oh-so-hot!

PUFF, PUFF GIVE

RVCA puffer jacket

(Corrie has been an integral part of Swell’s buying team for several years. Each week she’ll be highlighting the styles that are sure to get a fellow paid and la–, well, you know.)

What’s the hottest item in men’s apparel right now? The RVCA Puffer Fleece Jacket, and it’s my #1 pick for the week. Pair it with a white v-neck tee, jeans and a beanie, and you’ll be set! Jackets are a necessity this year. And with the cold weather is creeping up on us; you shouldn’t leave home without one.
