Bondi Buddha: A Fun Beachwear Brand

To say that I am exposed to a lot of beachwear is an understatement. I live in Hawaii and therefore I am surrounded daily by beachwear. Board shorts and beach shirts are the norm not only at the beach but EVERYWHERE. Seriously, Hawaii is probably the only place you’d see a student sitting in lecture while wearing a bikini.

When it comes to beachwear, the only problem is that there really is a lack of indie brands. The usual suspects include established brands such as Quicksilver, O’neil, Billabong, and Hurley. And for that reason, it’s great to see Bondi Buddha taking a stab at the beachwear market. Bondi Buddha is a breath of fresh air in an increasingly complacent space over run by big corporate brands. Is beachwear the last frontier of indie T-Shirts? If so, then Bondi Buddha is leading the way.

Check out the Bondi Buddha online shop for the entire range of T-Shirts which range in price from $15 to $28.

Co-Tee TV Episode 12: Woot Worms, {miles to go} and Buddha

In this episode I wear The Early Worm Gets The Bird by Jim Gray and available at Shirt.Woot and review Buddha designed by Faith By Design for {miles to go} Clothing, a brand independently operated by Greg Kerr and popular amongst those in the indie apparel and merchandise scene. I also talk about my TypeTees Slogan-A-Day Experiment. As always, enjoy with tea and a comfy tee!

Coty’s Thoughts:

Buddha by Faith By Design and available at {miles to go} Clothing. Good: Shirt comes sealed in plastic to protect it from the elements, custom hang tag, custom embroidered neck tag, super soft ink, huge print, printed on American Apparel, shirts come with {miles to go} stickers. Bad: Hurm, I really can’t think of anything bad about this tee. Price: $21.99 but you can save 20% if you use the coupon code “friends” at checkout.
