Birdwell Tees

In 1961 Carrie Birdwell Mann transformed her small southern California home into a sewing room and store, launching Birdwell Beach Britches. It was one of the first businesses specializing in surf wear, making her living room one of the first surf shops. Birdwell is now one of the oldest surf brands out there and they still stay true to their original classic styles. When they recently decided to start making graphic tees, we were thrilled to throw a few ideas in the mix that paid homage to the mid-century, industrial, SoCal surf aesthetic of the 50s and 60s.
