    Aviator Nation, a sporty/retro clothing line with roots in both surfing and skiing, matriculates not from Brooklyn, but from its West Coast sister, Venice Beach. The brand’s signature motif of bold, bright stripes decorates the store both inside and out. The upstairs has been turned into a comfy lounge (a welcome reprieve in a retail landscape where each last inch must always sell, sell, sell!) There’s a pool table, ‘70s-era sofas, a terrace, and vintage Aspen ski posters including the infamous Lange, “Soft Inside” campaign.

    “Soft Inside” wouldn’t be a bad tagline for Aviator’s scrumptiously soft, hand-stitched clothing. And while one would assume that ‘70s graphic design was the designer’s main inspiration it was actually ‘70s music.

    “Music is a huge part of my life,” explains founder Paige Mycoskie. “That era in particular inspired a lot of the color combinations, a lot of the brand.” The ‘70s, in addition to being the golden age of rock ‘n roll, was also the last age before the computer would digitize our world forever. Who knew we would miss that analogue life so much?

    I don’t usually write reviews for things but for this company I am compelled to. Not only are their designs unique, so is their customer service! Having had myself a slight issue with my order, Bri handled it like a pro. (Literally some of the best service I’ve ever had) So nice to see this in a time where I think companies can forget. Growing up in a family business myself, I can appreciate all this company is… not only do I love their product, I now love the company!!! Can’t wait to order more!!!
