In the unlikely event you haven’t heard of Babes Ride Out yet, picture this: 1,200 women from all over the world riding motorcycles into Joshua Tree for a weekend long campout.  Live music, amazing food, new life-long friends, and breathtaking views are guaranteed to everyone who attends.

We were honored to partner with Babes Ride Out this year and make the journey out to Joshua tree to host a pop-up post office, where women were encouraged to write their loved ones back home.  We also created maps that offered the most scenic routes to ride, including Pioneer Town and Joshua Tree National Park.

Please enjoy our photo story of the event.  Special thanks to Anya and Ashmore and all of the amazing women that participated!  All photos by FindOrion

Mumford and Sons invited us back to join their Gentlemen of the Road Tour in Seaside Heights, NJ this past weekend (last tour here).  Inspired by the games and rides on the boardwalk, we supplemented our pop-up shop with homemade funhouse mirrors and a strongman game that earned festival goers a stamp in their GOTR passport.  Check out our photo diary below and visit the Gentlemen of the Road website and try to make it to a stopover!

Here at Stetson, we’re always looking for quality and authenticity, both in our own product as well as in potential collaborators.  After 150 years, we know it when we see it.  So when we met Erik Schnakenberg and Sasha Koehn of Buck Mason, a menswear brand committed to perfecting essential pieces transcendent of time, we knew we were in good company.  Sasha and Erik sat down with us to talk about the design process, what albums they can’t stop listening to, and how it all began.


Tell us how Buck Mason came to be.

Erik: The concept of Buck Mason essentially evolved over a conversation that we had back in early 2012 over coffee. I had this idea in my head for simplifying the way men shop. It began with selling packages of timeless basics, that perfectly mixed and matched, so any guy could have a sophisticated style with one click. This developed into creating the quintessential timeless American uniform and it was obvious that needed to start with the ultimate Americana staples: the indigo 5 pocket blue jean and the perfect white t-shirt.


How did the name “Buck Mason” come to life?

Sasha: Both our fathers work in stone. Erik’s is a brick mason and mine is a stone sculptor, so we loved the word “mason” as it paid a homage to our fathers. “Buck” came later as it was the strongest name we could think of to put in front of “Mason.”

Your site focuses on “only the essentials”.  Has including headwear in your offering always been part of the plan?

Erik: Absolutely. I wear a hat most days, it’s always been a functional part of my wardrobe. We’d entertained the idea of doing a collection on our own, but partnering with Stetson has been far out. Think about it, Stetson started making hats around the time the Civil War ended; to lean on that type of experience while substantiating our design aesthetic was too good to be true.

image


What was the inspiration behind the hats you created with us?

Erik: Stetson cowboy hats are more well known, but it’s your formal dress hats that always spoke to me. For years I’d picked up vintage fur-felt Stetsons and reshaped them with my hatter here in Venice. When I met Joseph, the lead designer, we chatted about doing a collection together, one with a pared down aesthetic, closer to the vintage pieces I loved but with the same materials. I never thought it would come together but it did, and that’s how the Buck Mason x Stetson - City Collection - came to be.

Sasha: The purpose of this collaboration was to create a small assortment of dress hats that could be worn by anyone. These were not designed for the guy looking for a piece that would help his wardrobe stand out this season. This is a one time purchase. It’s a hat that will age with you that will look and feel better as you use it. You’ll wear it seasonally. Functionally. Sure, it can be worn as a fashion piece but that’s not its primary purpose. It’s nearly impossible to find a sharp pinched, tonal fur felt hat possessing this level of craftsmanship and quality. Hats are difficult to pull off, but these aren’t. They’re just wearable.

image

What is your favorite from the line, and why?

The Highway. It’s an open crown that we hand-shaped and dusted in the factory. Joseph actually did most of them himself. The design feels on trend, but it could have been worn in the 50’s.


What albums are you guys listening to right now?

Erik: Bob Dylan Shadows in the Night. The greatest songwriter of all time singing old standards of the greatest singer of all time. C’mon.

 Sasha: Leon Bridges

Richard Childress Racing and NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Austin Dillon will add an icon of everydayAmerican lifestyle to their look with the addition of well-known hat maker Stetson to their wardrobe.

image

“It has always been important for Stetson to work with those who share a piece of our long and varied history,” said Izumi Kajimoto, chief executive officer of Stetson. “Ours is the story of an American legacy passed from one generation to the next, and we cannot think of a more ideal partner to launch with in this, our 150th anniversary year, than the family that is RCR.”

image

Dillon, who is currently in his sophomore year of competition in the Sprint Cup Series driving for RCR, first began wearing cowboy hats as a child in his native North Carolina. He has also been seen wearing cowboy hats during family trips to his grandfather’s vacation home in Montana, on hunting expeditions throughout the country and at various racetracks on the NASCAR circuit. Recently, Dillon has encouraged friends in the entertainment and professional sports industries to embrace the look by sending them their own cowboy hats to wear.

“I’ve been wearing cowboy hats since I was just a little kid and have always recognized the iconic look of Stetson hats,” said Dillon. “The older I get, the more I appreciate a fine hat and Stetson definitely delivers. The company has a storied history in an active outdoors lifestyle, which I appreciate because my family has a long history in that lifestyle as well.”

 Stetson has roots dating back to 1865 when John B. Stetson started his business with $100. Since then, Stetson has become the standard in hats, the essence of the spirit of the West and an icon of everyday American lifestyle. The Stetson hat factory in Garland, Texas is one of the largest in the country and produces a line of hats in hundreds of different styles and colors.
