Vans embraces Joel Tudor’s popular signature apparel and footwear collection this spring/summer with a new assortment of styles inspired by 80s army surplus trends and classic Hawaiian prints. The Joel Tudor Collection introduces a new military bubble camo pattern on key styles, serving as the unifying pattern throughout the line and accompanied by complementary earth tones and floral motifs.
For the first time, Vans is introducing a heavyweight canvas surfboard bag to the JT collection. The JT Boardbag, fit for a 6-foot surfboard, comes in Joel’s signature olive green colorway and a pop of yellow on the zipper trim. The JT Seahaven jacket makes its comeback in three new colors: forest green, charcoal and black. The retro favorite, JT Trimline boardshort is offered in two outseams, 18” and 20”, and four colorways including the new all-over bubble camo, vintage colorblock and vibrant floral styles. The Joel Tudor Duffle III is built with a laptop compartment, external zippered pockets, removable shoulder strap and is able to convert to a backpack in a moment’s notice. Finally, the bold JT Admiral Buttondown gives the collection a little pop as a classic slim-fit short sleeve woven with a vintage floral print drawing back to Joel’s favorite Hawaiian shirts collected over the years.
Joel Tudor’s inimitable style is also captured in the Vans Surf Sider collection, featuring two sandal styles, the Nexpa Synthetic and the leather Chandler and one Surf Sider, the Washboard, to complete the collection.
