Now that we finally live and are Southern Californians, we find ourselves dressing the part. Moving from cold Oregon to warmer Southern California, our wardrobe and what we can wear throughout the year has changed for the better. The girls wear shorts and tanks, even into the winter, and I find myself in a short sleeve shirt and surf type shorts kind of guy these days.
To me when the sun is shining, I feel like I can hit the beach. What not a better way to take your kid to the beach than in matching swimwear. It’s great how much people are made happy and excited by seeing a happy father and son, or parent and child. Its great and the compliments are even better!
Australia based Tom & Teddy offers a wide range of ultra-comfortable, bright and bold swim shorts in a mid-thigh cut. Perfect for all day wear, in or out of the water. Also available are coordinating UVP 50 rash tops that feel as comfortable as a t-shirt. The rash tops are also extremely hardwearing and won’t break down or bag out after being exposed to chlorine water.
Tom & Teddy launched in 2012 by husband and wife team Michelle L’Huillier and Jelle de Jong. As former Sydney residents, and keen beachside living enthusiasts, they recognized the need for a wider choice of swimwear in a market flooded with street and surf oriented styles. After becoming parents to two sons, and being inspired by their fond memories of sand and surf, they created Tom & Teddy, a classic vibrant beachwear collection for boys and men – perfect for coordinating father and son ensembles. Their designs are created with former NY Times illustrator and also featured MoMa artist, Phil Marden.
All material are inspired from beautiful and warm Australian summers, and are built and designed to handle them. With UV protection along with being salt water and chlorine resistant, means no fading after a summer of use. All suits include double stitching for extra toughness and durability to handle the rough tumble of the massive ocean. And like with any beach short requirement, quick drying microfibre fabric makes getting out of the water and onto the boardwalk quick and easy.
Check out the Tom & Teddy short and beach clothing 2014 collection, titled “Vintage.” This collection features six newly designs all inspired by the 1960’s fashion and trends. Designs and patterns include waves, speedboats, airplanes and retro scooters.
Tom & Teddy is fun for us fathers and our sons and kids. Matching board shorts for father and son are a great way to make a statement and let your little one feel special matching their awesome dad! Sizes start at 12 months and above for boys and up to size XXL for men.
