Traditionally, Wetsuits and bathing suits are really the only time the words “surfer” and “suits” end up in the same sentence.The counter culture image of surfing was built on a romanticized image of spending entire days at the beach, building a life on anything but wearing closed toed shoes or even shirts.
Enter Shane Jones of Jonesea, an Orange County, CA-based custom wetsuit tailor who makes every single one of his wetsuits by hand, start to finish.
On the latest installment of Most Expensivest we join 2 Chainz in Miami for a special “Wet Dreams” episode. Things kick off with his assistant testing out an underwater jetski — known as The Seabreacher — while wearing a $5,000 USD Thom Browne wetsuit.
The custom wetsuit maestro that is Shane Jones hand crafts each and every Jonesea wetsuit from start to finish. While we highly recommend his custom wetsuit program so as you can play out any and all of your naughtiest wetsuit fantasies the stock suits are of just as high a quality and a slightly more accessible price point.
Handmade, custom tailored, wetsuit designer Shane Jones joins us to discuss how youthful angst can be a catalyst to pursue your passion, why experiencing adversity should stimulate motivation, how it’s never too late to radically redesign your life, and how he collected 8,000 square feet of goods for Lahaina’s families in need. Enjoy!
