SECOND / LAYER
Founded in 2013 by Joshua and Jacob Willis, and Anthony Franco in Venice, Second / Layer built its brand from the skating and surfing subculture of California. With the original inspiration, Second / Layer further infuses the subculture into unfinished tailoring or sophisticated cut & sewn pieces made in Portugal, making it stand out from the typical print screen skateboarding brands. Refusing to be categorized in either gender, Second / Layer frequently identifies itself as "gender-neutral", as long as "it feels good and authentic". Needless to say, its boundary-less philosophy is shaping its own identity season by season.
