If you print it, they will come. And come they have as Jesse James Joeckel's Whalebone tees, sweatshirts, hats and more have fashioned themselves into the summer must-have for any well-appointed weekender in the know.
What do you actually do? I created my own sweatshop in Montauk and spend countless hours hand printing tee shirts in the wee hours of the morning. Sometimes I surf... sometimes.
My motto is: Loose lips sink ships.
5 Favorite Hamptons Places: Ditch, The Dock Restaurant, Turtles Cove, my original store at 65 Tuthill Rd that overlooks Fort Pond Bay, and Liars Saloon.
The craziest thing I've done out East is... Survived 7 seasons owning and running a retail store in this wild town... crazy I know.
Best kept Hamptons secret? The winter.
If you had one day left out East, what would you do? I'd drive down to the beach with a large cooler filled with refreshing beverages, all my friends would be down there and the waves would be a foot or two over head and clean. I'd surf for a few hours, have a few beverages, and surf for a few more hours. We'd pack up and head down to the boat to catch dinner, maybe get a few dozen clams and have a backyard cookout while watching the sunset with family and more friends.
Who should we know? My dad, he was Timmy on Lassie ;)
