Club Monaco has partnered with heritage brand Katin USA to create a capsule collection of summer essentials. In the early 1950s Nancy and Walter Katin set up a custom canvas boat cover business in Surfside California. When some neighborhood kids asked them to create swim trunks durable enough for surfing, Walter designed the Kanvas by Katin surf trunks. Walters restrained utilitarian design became the most popular surf trunk in America and gave rise to the surf wear industry.


Instead of parlaying the popularity of their shorts into a mega brand surf company Katin kept things small and continued to produce surf trunks in the backroom of the surfside store. This summer, Club Monaco’s Aaron Levine combines his modern sensibility with Katin’s classic utilitarian design to create limited edition range of American made caps, swim trunks and t-shirts.
