I’d like to introduce our new Swimco correspondent, my son Brett, who is currently living in Sydney, Australia. Brett will be using his practical experience on the beaches of Australia as inspiration for his blog on swimwear tips for guys, called “Swimco’s Man Down Unda”.
Brett grew up in the Swimco business; it’s in his blood, so to speak. He spent the first three months of his life lying on my office floor while I worked. He attended his first trade show in California as a baby in a snuggly, and then returned as an 11-year-old attendee, helping our Men’s Buyer (Uncle Steve) make selections for the younger surf set.
As a result of his Uncle’s instruction, and many family trips to surf locales, Brett developed a passion for surfing. This led him to pursue his Business degree at Bond University on the Gold Coast in Australia (near Surfers Paradise), where he was fortunate to surf many world-famous breaks.
Brett recently returned to Australia to pursue work experiences (and to avoid the Canadian winter, bright bunny that he is), so we’ve asked him to periodically share fashion and surf news with our readers. Gals, you will be “in the know” and able to help your guy be stylin’ on your next beach trip, whether it be to Tofino, Mexico, or “down unda”.
Stay tuned for our first blog entry from “Swimco’s Man Down Unda”!
