Vintage Up-cycled Army Jackets

 The environmental benefits of up-cycling are huge! Beside reducing the amount of discarded materials and waste being sent to landfill each year, it also reduces the need for production using new and raw materials which means a reduction in air pollution, water pollution, emissions conservation of global resources. 

We've always been huge fans of vintage, thrifting and up-cycling and are excited to introduce our long awaited limited edition 'Her Waves up-cycled Army Jackets'. Add to the mix our new collection of Her Waves patches and you've got the Army Jacket of your dreams! Many of our jackets come with the patches already added for you, each one is totally unique in placement - and we're also offering a few jackets with a patch pack so that you can add them yourself!  The back of each jacket features art by Meg Jacovino. 'Swell Yeah' includes both embroidered lettering and screen printed design for a truly unique look and feel.  Working closely with our designer Kelsey Van Patten we've created these beautiful one of a kind jackets for you to wear now and love forever.

These preloved and preworn military jackets are each unique and beautiful. If you are expecting a “new” perfect piece, these are not for you. If you love vintage pieces that come with a ton of soul, then you've met your match! There are imperfections that make each piece unique and beautifully perfect in its own way. 

We've been searching high and low and couldn't find the patches we've always wanted to adorn and customize some of our favorite pieces of clothing ..... so we finally made our own.

I’m inspired by the water, the sun, the moon, and the stars. My countless wipeouts, my dreams of noseriding, and the feeling I get when sliding across the face of a wave.
