Product Review | Verano Hat:

When designing for this current collection, we tried to think of the perfect Summer hat. One that is going to be worn while sweating and always in contact with water. The hat is all mesh and allows for premiere breathability and has a patented Q3 wicking sweatband. The brim and patch are a herringbone patten with a raised embroider. This hat is my favorite that we have ever designed, and goes with our most important design aspect of creating a multifunctional product. - Mo

We spent a full day on the Little Red River with fly fisherman and river captain, Jamie Rouse. Matt Milner, Jamie’s first mate, was on board as well. A day on the river is not just about catching fish. It’s about the experience, the memories that are made, and lessons that the river teaches you.

The Rouse button down is named after our FC athlete Jamie Rouse. Some of our employees are out fly fishing with him this weekend and I couldn’t be more pleased with how this pattern and color turned out.

"As I travel along the Fjords of Alaska miles from anywhere I find myself in a dream. As the dark green ocean passes beneath me I lose myself in the waves, in the waterfalls and the trees. Into the cool mist I drift:

From thousands of miles away we are a family. A family of like minded people driven to like minded places. To share ourselves with the world and to show the world there is something special in just being a person, in living our lives in the best way we see fit. The pricelessness of being a modern day vagabond, living, and loving on the move. We are the ones who take value In being good and loving one another for what each of us hold dear. We don’t yet focus on how we are different but relish in the fact that for the most part we are the same. Our passions bring us closer together even when our lifestyles inevitably send us further apart. Our love for the rocks, and the sea, of imagery. We live for the anticipation of tomorrow even if we don’t know what it brings. With that and much more we take our lifestyle to all corners of the globe and we tread lightly upon the cultures of the people we have the pleasure of meeting. With a feeling of mutual respect we share our world. We live outdoors in this mutual experience we call life. We fear but alas we love every second of it.

We are friends.
We are family.”

Here are two of the three new button-up short sleeve shirts we designed for the 2014 Summer & Summer collection. When we began designing patterns for this season, we decided that it was a proper time to pay homage to the sports that make up our culture. This is when it dawned on us to use limited branding with custom buttons and labels, and go to the root of these sports by creating patterns that showcase what we wanted to say through imagery. Made of a 60%Cotton/40%Polyester blend for maximum softness and breathability for the summer heat, these short sleeve button downs are a way for us to wear what we love, comfortably, while looking good. - Chris, SS14 design team member

Last night we had our first of many meetings down in our basement of the Smokehouse. Pictured, we had the monthly Ozark Offroad Cyclists member meet. As you can see, those are meat hangers on the ceiling.
These guys are one of our partnered non-profits and doing amazing things in the mountain bike community in Arkansas. IMBA rep, Leslie Kehmeier has been in the area for the past couple of days mapping out our single track and went over a new kickass app and website called MTN Project.
