Mens Trends: Scoop Neck Surf Tees
Need a look to set you apart from the rest of the crew(necks)? These stylish new scoop-neck tees scream style while keeping a casual vibe for a night on the town, or a session at the skate park. The scoop neck has a thinner or non-ribbed collar with a wider stylized opening.
The new guard of progressive action sport freaks like Dane Reynolds, Mark Appleyard, Warren Smith, and Chippa Wilson rep this style that stumbles between grungy and fashion-forward.

You can trace the origins of the style in surf videos where touring rippers fashion the same tee for weeks of long flights and bar fights. The final product is this muted and tattered tee… but every good style has a story.
Most scoop neck tees at SWELL are custom designed with a blend of soft acrylic fabrics, over dyed for vintage worn look, and finished in a special enzyme wash for a soft feel. Contemporary and Core Surf brands such as Howe, SLVRD, Element, and AMBSN have customized their own looks to include scoop-opening pockets, contrast pin-striping, frayed trim, and Henley style buttoning.
The signature Billabong collection from Taj Burrow is a driving force of this modern spin on an everyday essential that can still get you past the velvet rope. So switch it up and see what kind of feedback you get taking this tee out on the town.
Custom scoop necks now available at SWELL.
