Founded in 1971 by Craig Sugihara, the Town & Country Surf Shop was born from-and continues to be driven by-the needs of the surfer. As can be seen in their iconic yin and yang logo, T&C’s foundational ethos is rooted in balance. Whether Craig is shaping boards or looking after the Hawaiian surf community, he makes sure T&C’s dedication to quality, pursuit of innovation, quality materials, and passion remains at the forefront of everything they do.
After all these years, T&C remains owned and operated by Craig, the original founder, whose grom-like stoke lands him regularly in the lineup or around the island enjoying the friendships that only a life dedicated to surfing can provide. In honor of T&C’s 50th anniversary, Vans worked closely with Craig to uplift T&C’s rich heritage, while still giving a progressive nod to the future of surf culture by offering new spins on classic colour combinations, checkerboard accents, and the gradient fades that the brand has become famous for.
Featuring a custom collaboration logo patch at the front panel and a gradient checkerboard print across the bill, the Vans x T&C Shallow Unstructured Hat gives a bold nod to each brand’s storied heritage.
It doesn't get more original than Vans. They created the first skate shoe in the 60's right here in Southern California! Since then they've been dedicated to all action sports, from longboarding to surfing in general to snow, skate, etc. Their classic shoes and apparel always continue to withstand the test of time.
