Sarnecki produced his own little surf publication that he would distribute for free to his buddies and surf shops around the area. But everyone wanted more. So, he created a calendar featuring his surf photography, and paired that up with a t-shirt, sticker, and a tidebook. The one known as Hippy began selling these items and the brand known as HippyTree was born in 2004.
Over a decade later, HippyTree is a full on outdoor apparel company inspired by nature and surfing.
Dedicated to designing clothing that embody Andrew Sarnecki’s lifestyle, the focus generally revolves around surf and stone. Hand drawn graphics of mountains, waves, and wildlife reflect HippyTree’s passion for good times outside, and they have proven that it resonates with their loyal customer base. Identified by that green tree logo, this brand is dedicated to reducing their environmental footprint as they strive to use earth-friendly materials and manufacturing techniques.
So what kind of clothing is HippyTree coming out with? Men’s shirts from HippyTree have got you covered no matter what down to earth look you are going for. Laid back and ready for whatever, the HippyTree Rambler Hoodie is a zip up that has a style and demeanor that befits its name. Every brand like this has to be able to do flannel well to be taken seriously. Well, the HippyTree Barley Flannel is a legit cotton force of freshness. A relaxed fit and chilled out flair in button ups like this from HippyTree makes them look like they know exactly what they are doing. And never forget tees like the HippyTree Tundra and Central. They were inspired by wanderers and made for roamers.
HippyTree men’s shorts really focus on utility. This company knows you like to get out there and do all the things, so you need shorts that can handle plenty of action. The HippyTree Basin Hybrid Shorts are a quick drying pair of awesomeness that repel water and is even made from recycled materials. A modern fit and short cut make the HippyTree Gaucho Shorts the perfect set for commuting on your bike in the summer, kicking around on your skateboard, or playing a harmonica in a boxcar.
Whether you’re a climber, surfer, skater, or anyone who sees a bit of themselves in Andrew Sarnecki’s passions, you are invited to see what the HippyTree clothing movement is all about.
