LA-based basics brand Aviator Nation is flying high these days. Last year, founder Paige Mycoskie—apparently, laid-back fashion runs in the fam—was crowned by GQ mag as one of America's best new menswear designers for her line of Cali cool retro tees, hoodies and surfer-faved apparel. In January, the beachy brand kickstarted the year with the opening of its third boutique in Malibu, located just down the street from celeb shopping haunt Malibu Country Mart.

Founded in 2006, the label got its start when Mycoskie handmade her own '70s-inspired graphic tees, which were swiftly picked up by Fred Segal and Planet Blue. In addition to stocking its signature super soft clothing and accessories (all made in LA!), the brand's new psychedelic surfer hangout boasts a wall of vintage records (Grateful Dead, Beach Boys, etc.), a massive hand-painted mural and one seriously rad galactic teepee.

Honda's Rebel mini-cruiser has been a staple starter bike for decades, but all those years of introducing riders to the sport have earned the little Honda more disdain than appreciation. So it's actually big news that Honda has introduced all-new Rebels in 300 cc and 500 cc forms for 2017, and this new-age Rebel is loaded with cool-bike potential.

Fit Guide
Please note that due to the intense wash and dye processes we use some products  will come out different than others. If you ever get a item that does not fit you perfectly we will gladly exchange it for you as many times as it takes until you are satisfied.
Hoodies and Crewneck Sweatshirts
Aviator Nation hoodies and sweatshirts are unisex. Yes, this means you can steal your boyfriend's hoodie and never think twice about rocking it. It also means that our sizing is unique. In general our hoodies run a bit small for men and a bit big for women.

Unisex Tees

The unisex tees run true to size for women and a bit small for guys, so guys order a size up if you are unsure.

Sweatpants 

Sweatpants are gender specific. It's not uncommon for women to get men's sweatpants as they have pockets and offer a looser fit.
