Rashguards at SJA Customboards

I blogged about Schrottvogel Wei’s new line of bikinis at SJA Customboards just a few weeks ago; if you haven’t visited his store yet then now’s a great time to do so because he’s just set out more goodies, this time in the form of really pretty short-sleeved rashguards.

The new rashguards are colored to coordinate very nicely with SJA Customboard’s existing inventory of bikinis, which is good news for you freebie hunters: remember that free blue bikini? Well, now you can get your hands on a matching blue rashguard, also for free.

Vogel sent me several review copies of the rashguards a few days ago, and I liked them so much that I IM’d him a few times to ask when were they going to be available in his stores. Call me a pest but I was eager to grab the rest of the colors. :p

The first thing that caught my eye about these are the colors and prints. The hues are vibrant and fun, and as I mentioned above they go perfect with the bikinis I bought previously. I also really like these rashguards because Vogel has imbued them with a good measure of realism. They appear to have a snug fit but not without looking like they’re stiff and/or literally painted on. The shading and highlights around the breasts, clavicle, and the shoulder blades is very nicely done, and I especially liked the gentle shading that runs along the spine. He’s put creases on the material in all the right places — they appear alongside the torso, between the breasts, and around the armpit juncture, just like you’d see on the real thing. There’s also some light nipple shading on these just as there’d been with the bikinis, and once again the shading is more apparent on certain colors (white, red, and black) than on others.

The rashguards come on the jacket layer, so if you’re a tattoo enthusiast you can still wear your tats on the shirt and undershirt layers and catch those massive winter waves in style. 😀

You can pick these up at SJA Customboards in Chi. And while you’re at it, don’t forget to grab the free blue one!
