You know what makes me happy? A soft tee. A really soft tee that speaks my mind. One of those soft, perfect tees you can wear anywhere: hiking, working out, to yoga, surfing (yeah for a little extra sun protection), or just with a pair of jeans…and not look like I am wearing a tee I wore four times already this week, that was previously drenched in saltwater.

It’s the simple things in life that make me smile: walks, naps, coffee, waves, dogs, nature…and somehow, I firmly believe soft tees fit into that equation. Maybe I’m weird, maybe more people feel the same. But, I think it’s totally ok if a tee makes you really, really happy.

…and if you own a lot of them.

Inspiration LA: JJ Wessels – Matix Ambassador A conversation over musty vintage clothes? 'But I Like it!"

Gabe Clement and JJ with the "Inspiration LA" one-off tee that was printed during the event.

SWELL: Hey JJ, thanks for taking some time to talk to us. “Inspiration LA” is pretty awesome and somewhat overwhelming for me, It’s my first year at the event. Have you been to the event before this year? How has your experience been so far?

JJ: I’ve been coming to the event since it started really, I was invited by Rin Tanaka. One of my friends, Brian Bent, was featured in a book that Rin published, and I think thats how I met him. It’s been the best event so far, definitely the best turnout. It’s something I wouldn’t miss. it’s something where I’m like “Inspiration is coming up! when is it? where is it?” type thing. (more…)
