Dip into this clothing line!
INSPIRER.nu got the chance to interview LA’s Ryan O’Connor and asked him a few questions in regards of his clothing line, RipnDip. This casual collection of goods have been growing steadily the past few years and seems to be making more of an impact on people from coast to coast.

What made you think of the name RipnDip? I wanted to start making some t-shirts and I was working at a skate camp as an instructor. Heard of the name and kinda thought it was funny and catchy; Put a new meaning behind it and ran with it.
Is it hard to maintain the business? It’s pretty hard to think of new ideas all the time. Pretty much it’s all been done one way or another. It’s like trying to re-invent the wheel.
Are you planning on making more girl clothes? Probably in the future.
I know you don’t only have shirts and flannels to your collection. You also have hats, jackets, pants and beanies. Out of everything you’ve designed, what is your favorite? Our C.R.E.A.M. pocket tee, which will be dropping this Spring (mid Feb).
Where do most of your sales come from? All over the US and we have a distribution in the UK.
Would you consider eventually opening up a store? Yes of course or a warehouse.
