Kanvas By katin usa

In the late 1950s, Nancy and Walter Katin were in the business of making canvas boat covers. One day a young Corky Carroll came into the Katin’s shop complaining of the difficulty in finding a pair of swim shorts durable enough to stand up to the then-new pastime of surfboard riding.  Walter used his sewing machine and some of the sturdy boat canvas previously used for boat covers and created the first pair of Kanvas by Katin surf trunks.

The Katins kept making their surf trunks, selling them from the Surfside store and through a hemisphere-wide network of surf shop dealers. From the 1960s through the 1970s, many top surfers were loyal customers  and appeared in surf magazine ads wearing them. Walter Katin died in 1967, and Nancy continued to run the shop and the business in the same manner as before.

In 1977, just as professional surfing was starting to take off, Nancy Katin initiated an annual Pro/Am Team Challenge at the Huntington Beach Pier. With many of the world’s best surfers coming to compete, winning the Katin Team Challenge became a prestigious accomplishment in the surfing world. By the late 1970s, the surf industry had begun a decade of explosive growth, but Katin continued to run the business as before. Her health began to decline in the early 1980s, just as surf wear was gaining mass popularity, and other manufacturers began take advantage of the trend, aggressively marketing their products with slick advertising and worldwide promotional blitzes. Katin, however, continued to sew surf trunks in the back room of the Surfside store, selling them up front and through the same loyal network of surf shops.

In 1986 Nancy Katin died. The Katins had no children, and Nancy left the business to her friend and seamstress, Sato Hughes, who had begun sewing trunks for the couple in 1961. Along with her son Glenn, Sato continued to run the Katin operation in the same low-key manner. They focused on the retail store and on maintaining the quality of Katin surf trunks.

By the early 1990s, the big surf wear market had “shaken out” and hardcore surfers were again looking for a pair of functional, durable trunks. Glenn and Sato held down the retail end, while two Newport Beach surfers, Bill and Rick, who had experience in marketingsales and production, took over the wholesale side of the business. They started by updating the classic canvas designs with nylon material and adjusting the lengths and fit for a modern clientele. They added shorts, shirts, pants and jackets to the product line, and with the new samples in hand, set off on a tour of surf shops in coastal cities in the United States. They were met by an enthusiastic response from shop proprietors, who found that sales were strong

Glenn and Sato now focused their efforts on the Katin shop. They filled it with clothingwetsuitsskateboardssurfboardsbody boards and accessories, while surf shop walls were adorned with photostrophies and other memorabilia spanning decades of surfing history.

In 1998 Bill and Rick sold the wholesale side of the business to K2 Sports, and inaugurated the merger with Bill’s brainchild, the “K2 Big Wave Challenge” (later known as the “Swell XXL”, and now as the “Billabong XXL”). The K2 buyout soon led to the principals migrating to other ventures and finally the demise of the Katin wholesale business. Glenn Hughes fought to reacquire the name for many years. In 2000 Nancy Katin was inducted into the Surfing Walk of Fame in Huntington Beach as Woman of the Year. In 2005, Glenn Hughes, with partner Robert Schmidt, regained the right from K2 to once again sell wholesale under the Katin name. On July 4 of the same year, Glenn Hughes with online partner Rod Kelsey launched a new website, KatinSurf.com, replacing prior URLs Katin-Surf.com (2006) Katin.com (1998) and KanvasByKatin.com (2000).

Mens Vintage Jeans

The 1960s saw fashion reject the conventions and niceties of previous eras. Clothing broke with social traditions that dictated what could be worn when and by whom. In the past, attire had been divided in to ‘formal’ and ‘casual’ wear, and distinct separations were made between the styles of clothing worn by men and women. The 1960s, however, saw the emergence of unisex clothing such as denim jeans, which could be worn by both sexes. Denim jeans, which had remained a staple wardrobe item for many young people throughout the decade, were inspired by mod fashion. New styles of denim jeans emerged and the rest is history.

One of the top denim trends is always going to be jeans. From flared to bootcut to skinny and wide leg, jeans are coming in and out of fashion trends all of the time. Jeans are settling for a more classic fit. Almost anything goes. Skinny, straight, pooled around the ankle, even cropped. The main thing to remember with jeans, or any clothing to pull off the classic trend in men’s fashion, is that they fit you. That’s true for most things you wear to make it look classic. Jeans will remain a classic though and, if done right, very contemporary.

Banks Journal in store nowioiiox ss

The Banks Journal mission is simple – to merge style & function
with a sustainable approach to design and development.

OUR STORY

Banks Journal is a modern clothing label inspired by coastal living and a love of design. Thanks to its founders, it’s infused with a unique blend of Japanese and Australian heritage. Masa Shibahara and Motoo Noda grew up under the neon lights of Tokyo. Tim Cochran and Rama McCabe spent their childhood in the creative hub of Byron Bay.

These contrasting perspectives of the world come together as Banks Journal to create the contemporary coastal look and feel of the brand.

These four individuals have combined their vast industry knowledge and experience to shape a label with offices in Byron Bay, Tokyo and Newport Beach in Southern California

OUR APPROACH

When it comes to crafting our product, we aim to take a modern approach to design with a fine regard to the details.

Our actions have a direct impact on the world we live in, and it is our responsibility to make an effort to preserve it. We value and take every opportunity to reduce the footprint of our everyday journeys, with the hope that it will bring forward positive change and progression.

Our innovative collective of surfers, designers, artists and photographers are all bound by their curiosity and share the desire to make the world a better place.

We embrace the everyday journeys we take with optimism in our hearts. It’s through this yearning for adventure that we aim to add utility and function to everything we produce.

A bit of stretch here, a little waterproofing there, means we achieve functionality without sacrificing our signature understated style.

OUR NAME

In Australia we call them sand banks. You know, those magical formations on the ocean floor at your favourite beach break that shapes the wave? We like the name because sand banks are constantly changing and evolving and we have the journal to capture these changes along the way.

OUR LOGO

It’s a reflection of banks on the beach and a balanced approach to our lives.

OUR SUSTAINABLITY

Since day one we wanted to take a sustainable approach to design and development. Growing up in Byron Bay, Tim and Rama were ingrained with a deep respect for their natural surroundings from early on. With this in mind, the choice was simple for us to utilise as many environmentally friendly materials as possible.

We’re proud that all our tees and the bulk of our fleece, are made with organic cotton. We use PVC and phthalate free inks across all our screen printing. We use re-purposed soda bottles to create the polyester that’s used in all our woven labels across every product we make. This same process is also implemented for a large portion of our boardshort development. Along with these measures, we also use FSC approved paper for all our swing tags and catalogues.

We’re not perfect, but we’re working hard to improve the way we produce everything we make.
