Billabong is known far and wide as a surfer culture brand which promotes the beach lifestyle: whether that beach is in Australia, California or Hawaii. In this recent video, the brand exerts itself into other areas of recreation: set in New York City, this is a bustling metropolis where there is likely more sidewalk surfing on any given day. The video series takes us on a 36-hour adventure in which a guy and girl experience “Damn Good” everything in their Billabong jeans. The trailer gives you a taste of their Billabong Jeans campaign, showcasing their medium wash and distressed jeans for young people with an active lifestyle. You really have to watch each video for the story to make sense. The verdict: we were impressed their jeans weren’t created as a mere afterthought collection.
You can find moderately-priced jeans in resin-baked, enzyme-washed and raw denim for men range from $49.50 to $149.50. Go to Billabong online to view more Billabong Jeans styles.

When Ambig Clothing (short for ambiguous, as you might suspect) was started, the goal was to create a line that any artist, musician, skateboarder, snowboarder or surfer would want to wear. For the new 2011 Spring/Summer collection, Ambig gives us a wide range of washes and dyes that look good whether you’re walking down the street or performing any of the above. Whoever you are they’ve got you covered. They offer the same variety when it comes to fits, meaning finding the perfect pair for your body type (though guys have it far easier than girls in this department) is a snap. Bottom line? These jeans are badass, and we love a man who’s dressed for action.
