Meet Your Maker | Jacob Byrne -Rhythm
Tell us about this banana pant movement.
JB: We always try to have some fun in our collections as it is apart of our heritage and identity, the silhouette is a step forward from your standard track pant and the quirky banana print actually came from an artist Nick Chalmers.
What’s the fit of this new Aussie style?
JB: The Banana track pant is an elastic waist & cuffed pant with a 7/8 leg , allover sublimation print and clean chino style pockets.
What does an aspiring designer need to get on your level?
JB: Motivation and the love for designing, nothing that’s worthwhile is easy. I can’t really say how you exactly become a designer as every one has a different path.
Who is your favorite Rhythm team rider to party with?
JB: Jack lynch, Asher Pacey and Neal Purchase they are all great to share a few ales with.
What’s the best part about working at Rhythm?
JB: We still believe in living the lifestyle we promote, which I think is very valuable.
Is there a massive Aus consipiracy to come to America and steal our women with your smooth talking accents?
JB: Haha maybe, we will never tell.
JB: Coopers Pale ale.
What celeb would you be most psyched on to rock your styles?
JB: Probably Devendra Banhart
Whats the next crazy style trend coming out of AUS?
JB: There is a active / sport influenced style starting to move in with some crazy bold colours and panel work, it will be interesting to see how people interoperate this.
