A Conversation with Jimmy'Z

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

In honor of their Jimmy'Z revival, Opening Ceremony interviewed the Venice Beach surfwear label's quirky founder, Jim Ganzer. In addition to revealing interesting tidbits about some of his most famous fans (Hunter S. Thompson's favorite Jimmy'Z tee features "a picture from a National Geographic of a guy holding foot-long night crawlers in his hands"), the post features tons of awesome '80s and '90s ad campaigns.
