On June 25th, Thaddeus O’Neil took The Standard, East Village by storm with his surfer meets hobo chic collection. DOWNTOWN had the pleasure of being a part of this debut. At the event, we not only got to look through O’Neil‘s rad pieces, but we also had the opportunity to flip through his insanely deep poetry. O’Neil’s SS’14 collection includes some super sweet ultrasuede boardies, among other pieces. Thaddeus coined himself, “hobo of the sea” because his collection gives off that Downtown-meets-surfer-dude vibe, and we just can’t get enough of it. Not to mention, he kills it in the cashmere game with his ultra soft beanies–perfect for a humid day Downtown. All of his pieces are handmade in Japan and the U.S., making each item one of a kind.
