Movember 2012: Save – Share – Support

May 18th, 2012 | By | 3,659 Comments

AMBSN Home Boardshorts They don't just have cutting-edge style... they have a sense of humor

The AMBSN favorite is back, and the HOME volley shorts have pledged allegiance to party.   Co-founding brothers Dylan and Dustin Odbert know how to have a good time, and that fun-loving spirit is in every handmade pair.    These California kids took this patriotic style to the next level with a contemporary cut and silicon washed microfiber suede.  AMBSN were the first in the action sports industry to push short style towards shorter and slimmer cuts, and this roached elastic waist short is an instant classic.

They took the same humorous approach to their ad campaigns, posting a parody of American Apparel in Vice Magazine. This spoof ran on the back cover, while the American Apparel ad graced the inside cover. The AMBSN ad campaigns always entertain their young, well-dressed demographic who get super pumped on ridiculous trends like Movember’s mustache grow-a-thon.

The shorts have a 16 inch outseam, new-wave low-rise fit, and contrast back patch pocket with a metal eyelet drain. Traditional tie and Velcro closure, and supreme-suede fabric make this your surf-hard, party-hard summer essential.

We love seeing these guys cruising around San Clemente, and they rip at skating and surfing.  Get your California made HOME Volleys here
