ABOUT

Outerknown was created to smash the formula. To lift the lid on the traditional supply chain and prove you can actually produce great looking menswear in a sustainable way. The founders are surfers who grew up with surf brands, but they grew out of Logos. And they want to wear clothing that’s made better and looks better. 11 time World Surf League Champion, Kelly Slater and acclaimed designer, John Moore founded Outerknown with the belief that they have a responsibility to make clothing that respects the world around them. For over two decades, Kelly and John were on the frontlines of fashion, seeing firsthand the massive impact the industry had on the environment. There came a point where they realized the clothes they were designing and wearing were part of the problem. They wanted to be part of the solution. They founded Outerknown to change the game and create clothing that not only reflects their style but also their values.
