Service is proud to introduce California-based Captain Fin, a surfboard fin manufacturing brand humbly started in lifelong surfer's Mitch Abshere's garage in 2006. They are known for being one of the first companies to put artwork on high-performance surfboard fins and very quickly gained a good reputation in the surf industry.

Abshere opened a retail shop in 2009 that sold vintage clothing as well as their own fins and quickly branched out to making apparel inspired by vintage beachwear and always featuring Captain Fin's trademark anchor image. Their company slogan is simply "Back to the Beach." 

Captain Fin is now a global fan favorite and even sponsors a surf team including surfers Alex Knost and Dane Reynolds amongst others.

Happy Summer, ya'll! Service Menswear is fully stocked with Jungmaven striped tanks and tees to usher in the heat.
Jungmaven founder Robert Jungmann has been working with hemp textiles and natural dyes since 1993. All the knits are dyed with indigo, black tea, coffee, and turmeric.
Jungmaven's vision is to get everyone in a Hemp T-Shirt by 2020. Why? The more farming of industrial hemp the better for the environment. Hemp cleans oxygen, water and nourishes the land. Hemp uses very little to no pesticides or insecticides and needs a fraction of the water that cotton takes to grow. 
The knits are a hemp/organic cotton blend, giving them a soft hand feel and good structure. They are also Made in the USA, which we love.

Service Menswear is excited to present a hat, shorts, swim trunks and tees from The Critical Slide Society (TCSS).

Founded in 2009 in a seaside village on the Central Coast of Australia, TCSS was launched by a couple of like minded surfers, Jim Mitchell and Sam Coombes, who, with a good sense of humor and a keen eye for art and design, had the vision of an authentic, creative label as a platform to celebrate an emerging alternative movement within surf culture: one that’s less about the winner’s podium and more about the simple joy of a deeply engaged surfing life.

TCSS works with artists, photographers, designers, filmmakers, surfers from across the globe, all of whom share a similar outlook. TCSS unique approach and its detail oriented design, has quickly become recognized for being one of the leading surfwear companies in originality.

Mitchell and Coombes describe the company in their own words: "A slippery little creature. Wrestled from the minds, pencils & sketchbooks of a small few in Australia & the United States, fed on a strict diet of colorful foam mowers, soulful skeg flexers (past & present) and the versatility of the humble surf craft beneath our feet.”

Laneway boardshort

Banks is a global men's brand based in the USA, Japan and Australia created by surf industry veterans Tim Cochran, Masahiro Shibahara, and former professional surfer Brad Gerlach. 

Splice boardshort

The three owners grew up surfing and wanted to create a brand that was understated, less focused on branding, and more focused on quality and sustainability. Banks is openly passionate about decreasing their carbon footprint and they do this by using recycled polyester for their labels, organic cotton, and PVC & phthalate free inks.

Loom tee

Banks focuses on the guys who grew up surfing, much like themselves, but are influenced by other passions like photography, music, architecture, and travel; guys that want a premium product, are conscious about the environment and are seeking an authentic brand that will mature with them.

 Laneway boardshort

Simply put, their mission is to merge style and understated functionality with a sustainable approach to design and development.

Shorts now available in store and online, tee available in store only. 

RVCA X MATT LEINES February 26 2016

Lion beach towel


Matt Leines is a Brooklyn based artist that grew up in New Jersey and studied illustration at RISD. His influences range from suburban American culture to primitive and non-western art, myths to masks, He-Man cartoons, and the WWF. Leines creates a surreal, obsessive, highly detailed world inhabited by men and beasts and everything in between, chronicling their conflict and culture.


Tiger t-shirt front and back

"If I stumble upon something, I try to draw it in my sketchbook as quick as possible. I like to look at a lot of different paintings from different cultures where you have to infer what is going on. If there is something I come across, an image, a composition, an idea, I just draw it--and I'll use the word bastardized--until the initial influence has disappeared and it exists only in my world."


All over jacquard pattern socks

Lion patch tank top

For the Matt Leines/RVCA collaboration featured in the above items, the focus is on the stylized lightening bolt and the tiger "mask", which are recurring images/characters throughout his work. Leines work has steadily been shown all around the world since 2002, namely at Deitch Projects in NYC, Roberts and Tilton in LA, in Athens, Greece and Tokyo, Japan.

Shop for the tee, tank and socks in our brick and mortar store or the online store. The beach towel is exclusive to in store.
