Let’s talk: Swim Shorts!

January 26, 2018 in Appaman Style

Here at Appaman we figure it’s always summer somewhere, which is why we are so excited about our brand new Resort 2018 collection. Featuring hard-wearing, versatile fabrics, bold prints and classic styles, these pieces are perfect for a summer escape or to stock up for spring.

 

Shorts are the staple of any boy’s summer closet, so here we break down our three boys swim offerings in Resort 2018:

HYBRID SHORTS 

These sharp looking shorts are of the land and of the sea. They have four pockets, belt loops, a zip fly with snap closure, an adjustable inner waistband. They’re also are made from quick-dry board short material, so you can wear ’em to swim or to lunch. They are the tailored short you know and love in a swim-friendly fabric, so they are sure to be a summer favorite. Pair the Hybrid Shorts with our rash guard tops for protection from the sun and surf, or with our Playa Shirt for a more structured, dressed-up look.

MID-LENGTH SWIM TRUNKS

New length! By popular request, we designed a classic fit swim short to add to our line. The Mid Length Swim Trunks hit above the knee (shorter than our classic swim trunk) and are perfect for splashing in the surf and playing on the sand. They feature an elastic waist with soft mesh brief lining and a back flap pocket (for storing shells and pirate treasure, obviously). Pick from a super cool seashell print or the bold Teal Dot print (we can’t pick a favorite).

The options are a-plenty with these bright, lightweight super soft swim shorts. Mix-and-match with your favorite rash guard. Two rear pockets, elastic waistband in rear panel, faux drawcord. Inner mesh underwear.

SWIM TRUNKS

Our best-selling bright, lightweight super soft swim shorts are BACK in four incredible prints. Feeling beachy?  Blue Beach print. Feeling brave? Hammer Time is the print for you. Dreaming of looting pirate treasure on a tropical island? Neotropics. Obsessed with low-key cool graphics? Toucan Grey is your guy.  Mix and match with your favorite rash guard for protection from the sun and surf. The Swim Trunks feature rear pockets, an elastic waistband in the rear panel, faux drawstring and inner mesh underwear.

This is a limited edition collection – snap it up while stocks last!

Summer’s Last Day at Appaman HQ

June 14, 2013 in Appaman News

Today is a bittersweet day at Appaman HQ as we bid farewell to a much beloved member of our team as she takes the next step in her career. Summer Walker, our amazing production manager, is moving on to follow her dream full time, and we would be crushed if we weren’t SO DARN EXCITED for her and all the plans she has in the works. (We can’t wait to spill the beans when it’s time!)

Summer has been an integral part of Appaman’s success over the past five years, working right along side Lynn and Harald to grow the company into what it is today. Everyone from our sales reps and boutique owners to our factories and shipping companies has worked with Summer and knows what an awesome lady she is – warm, friendly, with business savvy to boot. In addition to her professional expertise, she has grace and moxie in spades and truly epitomizes the adventurous spirit that Appaman is all about.

Appaman HQ will not be the same in Summer’s absence, but we know that this is just the beginning of a long and successful career, so we’re smiling.

(Plus, she promised to come hang out with us later.)

Adieu, Summer, and come back soon for another Pizza Friday!

Fun fact: Summer also has amazing hair

Colors of Summer – Our Tribute to Ombre

May 2, 2013 in Featured, New This Season

Is there any palette more inspirational than that of Mother Nature herself? For our Spring/Summer 2013 collection, we were inspired by the blissful beauty of the ocean, where all it takes is sand, a surfboard, and a little sun to make a truly perfect day from sunrise to sunset.

We took the natural ombres from the sea and the sky to make great color options for beach bum boys and girls.

Take a look at some of our inspiration and outfit ideas:

Pay it Forward – Summer Walker

Read all about Summer’s choice of charity!

“For this year’s Seven Weeks of Giving, I have chosen the Food Bank for New York City as my charity. Tragically, each year millions of people go hungry in the USA and many of these people live right here in New York City. In addition to distributing up to 400,000 meals a day, Food Bank helps the NYC community by running nutrition education programs and providing income tax service for the economically disadvantaged. They also do massive amounts of research and lobbying to help find long term solutions to food poverty in our country. Now more than ever, especially with the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, it’s important that we provide support to important institutions like Food Bank NYC. Check them out and offer your support at http://www.foodbanknyc.org/.
