Although Aviator Nation's retro beach essentials are practically synonymous with Cali's coastal-cool lifestyle, it had yet to make a splash in the OC — that is, until last week, when the LA-based basics brand officially opened its fourth SoCal shop in Laguna Beach.

The GQ-approved label's 800-square-foot boutique is decked out in designer Paige Mycoskie's (yep, TOMS founder Blake's cool sister) '70s-happy surf shack vibes. In addition to colorful retro hoodies, graphic tees, surfboards and accessories, and more, the kaleidoscopic shop stocks Aviator Nation's new swimwear, workout apparel, and outerwear collections.

Interior decor highlights include whitewashed floors and and ceilings, exposed wood beams, a cool bohemian hangout den (complete with a rattan hanging chair), vintage surfboards, and wall art handpainted by Mycoskie herself. See it all for yourself and scroll through the gallery above.

Aviator Nation is open Monday through Thursday from 9:30am to 6pm and Friday through Sunday from 9am to 7pm.

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.
