Brothers + Bathing Suits

My friend Blake (seen in red) introduced me to Australian shop owner, Evie of Tattatatscat. He and his brother had these "Wunzy's" made this Christmas... and since bathing suit season is approaching I thought the gentlemen might want an alternative to the average board short. ;) 

Take it away Blake,

The Wunzy's are modeled after 1920's men's swimsuits. You email your measurements into Evie and she custom makes each one! She really hustled on this order because I was trying to get them in before my brother left town. She actually made them and shipped them from AUS to the states in time for them to arrive for Christmas Eve! (About one week's time or less). I paid a pretty good penny for shipping to get them here that quick, it was just nice that she honored that. 

This photo was taken a on a Canon 5D Mark II. I set up the camera on a tripod and framed it best I could without anybody in the frame, then brought my mom and brother out in the cold and relied on mom to man the autofocus button and advance the shutter. Then I edited them with RAW in Photoshop. It was a good team effort! By the way, my brother's name is Jordan and he lives in San Francisco.

Thanks Jordan & Blake for this fun project... so there you go, a new swim apparel alternative just in time for summer. Give Evie a buzz if you want "Wun" for yourself. ;)
