Product Reviews

"Bought a few things a couple of summers ago. All tops. Called about OCBD and they helped me with sizing. Fair price, good oxford fabric. Did not shrink a whole bunch. I am satisfied."

Clay from American Fork, Utah

"Saw this tee on a few locals this summer and luckily bumped into a booth you had on the beach in Hermosa & got one of my own."

Robb from Hermosa Beach, California

"Originally received wrong size, but returned and problem was corrected. ultimately, happy with shorts and they included a nice looking free T-shirt with that second shipment for their mistake."
