Tailored Surf Shop

Tailored Surf Shop stems from an experience I had living near Nazaré, Portugal, a world surfing capital. With waves nearing 80 feet tall, surf culture is deeply rooted in the town. At the same time, the women of the city (known as nazarenas) line the streets selling trinkets in the historic uniform: seven layers of skirts. This unique dynamic is carried out within the collection through sporty surf-culture-related colors and elements in combination with the craftsmanship of tailoring.
