Brian Bent’s Oakland Racer

user by kurumi

Brian Bent is surely not normal, and that's absolutely okay. I mean, who else would purchase a 1927 Pontiac Oakland Racer and drive it amoungst all the contemporary cars that are out? A perfect juxtaposition, and a perfect fit for our gang of Punks and Poets. Check out this video by Petrolicious featuring he and his new/old Oakland Racer.

How We Kick It: Rachel Moore

user by Stance Gal

Name: Rachel Moore

Hometown: Oxnard, California

Spear fisher. Rock climber. Master diver. Naturalist. If there were ever an example of how style can transcend professional, Rachel Moore is it—never over dressed, casually cool, she's in command of a look that's as unique as it is understated. And for someone who spends more time in the water than she does on land, we think that's quite an accomplishment.

How would you describe your personal style?

Jeans and a T-shirt are pretty standard.

Who is your style icon?

Alessandra Ambrosio. She's hot and has great street style—casual and never over styled.

If you could only travel one more time in your life, where would you go?

The Marquesas Islands in the South Pacific. I'm hoping to sail there next year—just made an offer on a boat. But hopefully it won't be my last trip.

Have you ever had a scare under the water?

I was on a deep dive on a wall in Honduras when I almost lost one of my dive buddies. We were diving on the deepest wall on the island, where the top of the reef sits in about 40 feet of water then drops off vertically to just over 3000 feet. We were planning on doing a very short dive to 250 feet where there is a small sand ridge just before the wall completely drops off into the abyss. There were four of us that day and we all had multiple dives to over 200 feet and over 1000 dives each under our belts, but this day, one of the more experienced divers got nitrogren narcosis, a state when your body has absorbed too much nitrogen and some people hallucinate. We were checking in with each other every 50 feet to make sure no one was getting crazy eyes, but the last 50 feet we couldn't get our buddy's attention and he seemed like he was just going to keep going into the abyss. Around 200 feet, it's possible to get oxygen poisoning and we were already pushing our limits. No one felt comfortable going deeper and we only had a few precious minutes of air left at that depth. At that point I started getting really scared and it was hard to breathe, each breath was like trying to suck pea soup out of a straw. I was on the verge of tears thinking I was going to lose a close friend. We all felt so helpless—we kept hitting our tanks trying to get his attention and all we could see were his bubbles rising from below us. The only thing we could do was pray he came to his senses and hit the diver recall alarm when we got back to the boat. We started our first safety stop at 180 feet when we started seeing bubbles coming up—I started welling up with tears when I knew our friend was okay and coming to meet us. He met us up at our safety stop where I smacked him upside the head and made other gestures underwater letting him know how much he scared us and how stupid he was! We all decided never to dive that deep again—no number was worth our lives.

What makes you feel most alive these days?

I used to be a total adreanline junkie: skydiving, bungee jumping, rock climbing, deep diving, anything that got my blood pumping and pushed my limits. After losing a few friends to similar hobbies, I decided to back off a bit. I liked to feel alive but no rush is worth my life in the long run. Now I love climbing at night under the stars. Sitting at the top of a climb in the middle of the wilderness with my headlamp turned off seems like heaven. No lights other than the stars, no people, no noise other than my heart beating—that's when I feel most alive.

What's something we'd be surprised to find out about you?

I used to study entomology (the study of insects). I have a prize-winning insect collection and I continute to catch butterflies in every country I travel to.

Knee socks or cut low?

Knee socks: sexy with added protection while climbing or hiking!

How do you kick it in Stance socks?

I love having them stick out from my boots or shoes as added flare. I'm pretty simple when it comes to how I dress but adding fun socks totally ups my game.

How We Kick It: Lindsay Perry

user by Stance Gal

Name: Lindsay Perry
Hometown: Satellite Beach, FL
Website/Blog: www.lindsea.com

At first pass, Lindsay Perry is the epitome of the “California Girl,” combining her passion for art, music and surfing into a life of chance and opportunity few will ever experience. But her West Coast style is deceiving—as it turns out, she’s a bit of a Southern Belle: “I get asked about California all the time, but I’m actually from Florida” she tells Stance. “I’ve got a neat little place there in New Smyrna Beach and a lot of roots in the south.” Wherever she’s from (and wherever she goes), we have our eyes peeled for what’s next from this free-spirited multi-hyphenate.

How would you describe your style to someone you’d never met over the phone?
I love to dress funky, but comfortable. Mixing patterns and layers is always something I’ve been into.

If you could only travel one more time in your life, where would you go?
I’d love to go back to Europe for a while!


Who are your style icons?
Hmm, I get really inspired by so many different people/magazines/websites. I think Zippy Seven has an amazing style, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen and my girlfriend, Cailin Russo. 

Ever have a gnarly surfing accident?
Oh yeah, a few! I had a really bad scare in Northern Nicaragua a few years back and once in Hawaii, right after. I definitely know my boundaries now!


What makes you feel most alive these days?
The first thing that comes to mind, is love. I’ve had an amazing boyfriend for a year now. We do a lot of traveling, exploring life and all it has to offer. Anything creative makes me feel alive—art, music, surfing, snowboarding, designing.

What’s something about you we’d be surprised to find out?
Ha! So much. I’m kind of a weird person. My all-time guilty pleasure is Full House and anything on Lifetime. I love Britney Spears and have a small obsession with buying electronics.


Do you prefer the beach or the mountains more?
My heart will always be at sea level but it’s been incredible to be in the snow lately. I just think it’s important to broaden my horizons and try new things.

Knee socks or cut low?
Mid-shin to knee-high. Nothing more fun than a funky pair of tall socks .


What’s your favorite way to wear Stance?

Mid-shin high, bright and with a pair of Chuck Taylors or some vintage boots. Love them with shorts and oversized flannels.

Show us how you style your Stance socks by tagging us in your full-body outfit shots on Instagram #howwekickit @stance_muse. You could be featured on our How We Kick It gallery alongside Lindsay and more of our favorite trend setters and rule benders.
