Just saw their Fall 09 stuff online and it looks pretty good. The beanie if my favorite though. I wonder if these pics were used for inspiration ?
Most of these pics were taken from Mr. Jake Davis who is much cooler than I.

Vilebrequin is to Billabong as France is to America. It's a sad analogy but very true. When I was in France, everyone had these on and looked like a normal person as opposed to the "Brody's," that continue to wear board shorts even though they don't ever seem to have a board in hand. Whatever the case, these shorts are great and made very well. They are expensive but I think it's worth it. I picked up a pair for my brother and myself.
This company was founded in St. Tropez in 1971 and has grown quite a bit since then but still seems to be making a solid product. If not, you can always grab a sweet pair of board shorts and look like a newport beach boner.

Found Photo and my good buddy Larry are having an exhibition in LA that started last night and goes 'til early August. If you happen to be in LA, stop by Larry's store and check it out. If not, check the site for some really great vintage pictures that are very affordable. Here are some of my favorites.

This was hands down the coolest hotel I have ever been to. Located in the middle of town in St. Tropez, this 9 room hotel is the place to be. The outside bar/restaurant was probably my favorite and it didn't hurt that a 19 year old DJ was spinning Nina Simone and other good oldies. Here are some pics if you don't believe me and yes, the rates are very reasonable for such a great spot. If it's good enough for the Prince of Holland (he was staying across from us), it should be good enough for you.

Hands down the high-lite of my trip. This by far the coolest place I have ever been to. Besides being the best looking place on earth whether it be the Med Sea, or the actual people, this place is just amazing. Hopefully, these pictures do it a little bit of justice.

Monaco was nothing short of amazing. This was my second time here but or whatever reason, this last time was the best. We went to some great restaurants, partied at some cool spots, and even gambled at a casino that resembled something out of a James Bond film, which later resulted in me betting next to Bono, The Edge, Lenny, Penelope, and Javier.
