Last week we featured our favourite women’s winter accessories and this round calls for the spotlight to be on the guys. Everything from beanies to sunglasses, classic wallets and soothing records to satisfy even the chilliest of winter days. Guys too, can update a drab winter wardrobe with key accessories whether you’re wanting to freshen up your look or just expand your collection. Here are my favourite winter accessories from the SurfStitch new arrivals.

There’s no escaping, denying, or hiding it: the crazy contrast pocket is a trend on mens tees that’s come around and is here to stay! Whether it’s a different colour from the same palette, or whether it’s a crazy print clashing on another, this style can be seen all over SurfStitch and its’ mens new arrivals.

Seeing how looks are put together by the people who deal with the clothes on our site all day everyday always interests me. No stylists, no lighting and so many different interpretations and tastes. So this week, I pulled one guy and one girl out of the hall way and in front of my iPhone screen to see the way they have put some of the latest SurfStitch new arrivals together. And what’s better, you can shop the entire look on the site!

In the past few years SurfStitch has launched our European site, been named Online Retailer of the Year and won Best Pure Play Online Retailer and Best Site Optimization and design at the ORIA’s. When we reached another mile stone, welcoming our 400th brand, we decided it was well and truly time to celebrate….And celebrate we did!
At a roof top location in Coolangatta on Saturday night, attendee’s walked into what fittingly felt like a scene out of a Corona commercial. Decorated and put together by the wonderful people at Us And You Events, the theme of the night centered around SurfStitch’s development and growth. Party goers had their pictures taken on Polaroid camera’s that were later added to a large banner, eventually carving out the number ’400,’ growing over time just as the company itself has.
A large paper flower garden was the center piece encouraging photo op’s amoungst the blooms to “See how our garden grows.”
And what would a party to celebrate 400 brands be without involving a couple of the killer labels offered on site? The Zanerobe party crew jumped in their van and headed up from Sydney to work the decks all night, getting a quick rest as our head Men’s buyer Ollie Edwards took over and spun some old school hip hop.
The filling of the ’400′ banner and the phenomenal sunset was all caught on time laps film from a couple of camera’s donated by GoPro, as well as some other rather interesting footage from the rest of the night.
Sailor Jerry’s ensured that all that hard work on the dance floor was rewarded with a refreshing beverage mixed with Jerry’s, ginger beer, bitters and lime and the night went off without a hitch.
400 Brands was an absolute blast and we can’t wait for the 500th!
The drop crotch jean and pant is a new and daring trend not for the faint hearted. However, when done right it is a fresh style that gives a street edge to ordinary jeans. For some this look may be a bit too much, but if you style it with a basic tee and sneakers you will have a statement, edgy look. Don’t ever get this look confused with the MC hammer pant, this is definitely not a baggy, loose style circa 1980s. To stop you getting confused between the two don’t go for a loose drop crotch to your knees instead choose a more subtle cut with a tapered leg.

Yes, it’s true – we’re severely jealous of anyone who gets to pop over to Rio De Janeiro, Brazil to get involved with the Billabong Pro! With those white sands and incredible coastlines, South American food and incredible culture, why wouldn’t we envy them?
Since we can’t be there, we’re just having the time of our lives here at SurfStitch HQ lusting over the shots from the Billabong ‘Made for Living’ Autumn campaign. Zippora and friends, that’s a job well done!

This Monday has me musing about the beautiful sunsets we keep seeing here on the Gold Coast. Autumn is in full swing, and the colourful, early sunsets are sweeping me away on a daily basis. What brought this on, you ask? Why, our roof top SurfStitch 400 Brands Staff Party, of course! Photos are coming later this week, but let me paint you a picture… as we enjoyed our drinks and canapes, the sky was draped in slivers of fluorescent oranges, mixed with bubblegum pinks, corals and bits of remaining blue and grey.
There’s nothing more calming than a beautiful sunset, and we got to enjoy it at its’ best – today I’m dreaming of all of the beautiful sunsets we’re lucky enough to see, and the incredible colours they show you. Dream with me this Monday, and shop my SurfStitch inspiration!

In some countries, winter is white, but in beautiful Queensland, Australia, we can only dream! Reminiscent of snow flakes and ski jackets, the different hues of white on SurfStitch have me reminiscing about white winters and crisp air.
Enjoy my Monday Musings and picture the bright whites of a winter snow, the egg-shell mug holding your hot chocolate and the off-white of your warm bed covers, enveloping you in the early mornings.
