INNOVATION THROUGH EXPLORATION

Our sole purpose is to create versatile yet comfortable clothing from the best fabrics available in today's market.

This results in innovative products of superior quality that don’t just look amazing - they also empower you to move through the world with unshakeable confidence.
Whether on land or sea, our apparel never lets you down or leaves you second-guessing. Discover premium apparel for men and women that looks and feels just as good outdoors as it does when you’re kicking back. Never settle and enjoy the labors of our passion for innovation through exploration by choosing Van Zandt Apparel today.
Producing trunks that embody our belief in innovation through exploration is what Van Zandt Apparel is all about.
But that’s easier said than done. To ensure that your trunks can take you from peak to peak and everywhere in between, we design and craft them right here in the USA using experienced artisans and top-grade materials. We then subject them to over 4 years of intense R&D in different ocean, alpine and river environments.
The result? Trunks that you can trust. Complete with superior features, true-to-fit sizes and a tasteful aesthetic so you can transition between land and sea with maximum ease. Because the right pair of trunks shouldn’t feel like a compromise, nor should your clothing be produced in a far-flung factory.
All aspects of our trunks are scrutinized, from design to detailing and right up to their eventual release. We also don’t rush production just to meet deadlines or rely on overseas manufacturing channels, which means you get bottoms that stand up to the rigors of an active lifestyle and last for a lifetime, not months.
Van Zandt Apparel isn’t here to change the world, but we do want to change the way you move through it. For this reason, our mission is to take our founder’s passion for long lasting, hard wearing, detail-oriented quality and apply it to all products from both our current and future collections.
This includes producing classic above the knee trunks and apparel for both waterman and outdoorsman that meet our own high standards for homegrown craftsmanship, whilst also remaining open minded in the pursuit of new innovations.
Van Zandt Apparel also promises to make decisions with responsible manufacturing, environmental sustainability and individual freedom of expression in mind. After all, our products are more than just a fleeting fad – they’re a timeless companion in your pursuit for daily adventure.
