The Party Wave Collection

Surfing is like a parachute for my life.







While our journey as a brand has connections to both California and New England, we’re just a handful of coastal kids at heart, regardless of which one we’re on. Over the years that’s one thing that has remained undoubtedly consistent—and with it, our connection to surf culture and the vibrant community that we’ve been fortunate to be a part of. Hell, our Co-Founder, Mike Armenta still manages to find time in the water as part of his daily routine. It’s part of not only who we are as a brand, but also as the individuals behind the Taylor Stitch we’re so proud to build. So when we had the opportunity to partner up with our buddies at Magic Seaweed, along with our long time friend and artist, Ty Williams, it seemed to be the right ingredients for a truly special sauce that we’re excited to finally bring to life.

Using a handful of our spring styles as a canvas, Ty was kind enough to chip in and lend a hand adding the graces of some special illustrations he worked up specially for the capsule. In light of the good times, big waves, and bi-coastal collaboration, we’re dubbing it The Party Wave Collection.







A raised glass rendered in textiles to the easy-going, fun-loving vibes of the surf community and all that it’s done to shape our collective identities.Half buried in old magazines, esoteric books about sharks and sea life, and vintage cartoon prints, Ty shared with us his initial ideas for the designs and we knew the rest would take care of itself. “I seem to work better in a big hurricane of ink and paint” he smiles. Much like his preferred workspace, Ty is a whimsical, energetic whirlwind of artistic energy and pure, unbridled lust for life.

Thrust from a childhood in the Caribbean to being the odd man out as an artsy surfer kid in Maine, Ty’s idiosyncratic nature was forged by a life in constant flux, imbuing him with an insatiable wanderlust that has been informing his art and enriching his experiences as a surfer ever since.

“The playfulness of being in the ocean and drawing on the page are the same as they were when I started doing this as a little kid as they are now as a bigger kid.”

With a breadth of influences ranging from global folk art to Matisse, Ty’s work is uniquely his own and decidedly fun, capturing his singular perspective on nature, surf culture, and everything beautiful about the ever-changing environments of his traveling life. With it, he reminds us to not take things so seriously and to (as one must when riding the swell) go with the flow. As Ty himself puts it, “Art matters because so many other things don’t matter.”

Whether you’re a surfer, an artist, or just a guy with an eye for the finer things in life, there’s room on the Party Wave for you, too. Cheers.
