Vans presents the new Joel Tudor Signature Collection for Fall '13, featuring a full selection of winter surf staples including footwear, apparel and accessories. Inspired by the champion surfer's classic style, the collection utilizes vintage patterns and silhouettes fused with distinctive military green and earthy color tones.
Standout styles include the JT Hetch, a brand new, heavy nylon, water-resistant jacket with a fur-trim hood. The JT Merced, a plush, knit pullover sweater with vintage mixed-fabric details is perfect for layering your cold-weather outfit. Transition between seasons with the JT Boomarang, a slim-fitted linen martini-style short sleeve printed with custom artwork by Neil Blender.
Finally, the popular Joel Tudor Duffle III gets a fresh update in its signature military green colorway with a larger rectangular storage compartment, removable shoulder straps, laptop compartment and array of pockets.
Joel’s collection is rounded out by three must-have Vans footwear styles, including an Authentic featuring the Neil Blender pattern that ties back to apparel, a Nexpa Synthetic sandal, and a Bali surf sider.
