Villager Goods | Brand Preview 2016

While the excitement surrounding Villager Goods continues to build as details slowly emerge about the new brand, much is still unknown besides the fact that they will be launching later this year. And of course the whole basis of a surf brand, owned by a collective of professional surfers. However, I recently tracked down the trademark information which provides a little more information about the brand. 

First and foremost, their trademark extends to “clothing for men, women and children.” A fact which isn’t surprising since Taj Burrow is a new father. In addition, the trademark application wasn’t submitted until 4/6/2016 which seems kinda late considering when news first broke surrounding the brand. Last but not least, their attorney is Thomas J. Speiss, III who is a lawyer in Newport Beach, California and specializes is intellectual property types of law. 

As for what the brand aesthetic will be, it’s opening collection’s price point and the launch date; we’re still in the dark. However, I’ll be sure to bring you all the breaking news regarding Villager Goods as soon as it becomes available. Let’s just hope it’s not a repeat of Outer Known!
