Remember that canvas case (known to big kids as a Dopp Kit) that your mum would stuff into your rucksack or duffel before you were shipped off to Summer Camp? The small case that housed all your summer survival kit – bandaids, floss, toothpaste and toothbrush, pocket knife, poison ivy wash, etc. Well, Max Wastler of All Plaidout and Buckshot Sonny’s and Tanya and Roy of Winter Session collaborated and reproduced this nostalgic relic of our youth. The Kamp Kit is made of heavyweight cotton canvas and a vintage Talon brass zipper that will survive all the grown up journeys you’ll tag it along for. Click here to see the making of this gem.
When you hear that Taylor Stitch and Buckshot Sonny’s are launching their collaboration Yosemite shirt, you better act fast. The Taylor Stitch shirts are known for selling out in a heartbeat due to their impeccable craftsmanship and fit. When you throw in a dose of Buckshot’s old school classic, you’ve got a winner of a chamois cloth shirt. Handmade in California of organic cotton chamois and available in four colors, it’s not hard to decide whether to get one or not, but which color to get for yourself, your boyfriend, your brother, and your father. Good luck with your own decisions, but remember act fast before a sold out sign makes the decision for you.
I hope you are all excited about The Shiny Squirrel Pop-Up Shop I’ll be co-hosting at Stel’s. The opening party is Dec. 10th 6-8pm, but Stel’s will be holding on to the goods through the holidays. We have an amazing list of vendors on board and Jessica and I wanted to do a series of features highlighting them. First up, we’ve got Joe Gannon and Max Wastler of Buckshot Sonny’s with some clutch holiday gifts. Their shop is gender neutral, but I have a strong feeling that the ladies out there would get mega brownie points for picking up any (or all!) Buckshot goods for the men in their life.
Q. For anyone who has met the two of you, they know you guys are two peas in a pod. How did you guys meet?
A. We met through mutual friends at a fundraiser in New York. We got to talking, hit it off, and the next thing you know, we’re visiting different parts of the country to learn more about the great craftspeople keeping alive our country’s manufacturing efforts.
Q. What inspired you to start a shop together?
A. After happening upon a treasure trove of deadstock sporting goods in Nashville, and after realizing our struggle to find sporting goods that didn’t look like they’d come from a NASA space lab, we thought we’d utilize some of the knowledge we’d acquired in our hunt for quality. We’ve put together a small selection of things we love, things we think will hold up well enough that you’ll want to pass them onto your kids and their kids.
Q. The Buckshot Sonny’s shop is a perfectly edited selection. How did you decide on those specific brands and products?
A. Truly, trial and error. It will always be that way. 90% of the boots Leon Leonwood Bean first put out were returned. While we don’t aspire to that, we understand — and we expect our customers to understand — that if it doesn’t hold up to our standards of quality and ethic, we won’t sell it.
Q. You only launched this September, and are already off to a great start. What do you foresee in the next year for Buckshot?
A. First, thanks for the kind words. We’re in the thick of it right now with holiday sales. In the next year, we’d like to expand our product offerings, particularly with summer approaching. Look for things to wear in and around the water, on the trail, and at the barbecue.
Buckshot Sonny’s continues to build up their inventory on their online shop. And oh man are you going to have fun checking out the goods. Personally I’m a big fan of the new Kool Kan (TM) koozies made in Wichita, TX. Not only because they are awesome, but because it displays the logo I drew for the guys quite nicely in blaze orange vinyl. Then there is the Top Flite Kites. And I hope I’m not the only one that wonders, what happened to kites? I loved kites when I was a kid, and still do! But I rarely ever see a kid with a kite these days. So why not give a kid in your life (what constitutes a kid is up to you) a kite with a piece of history. Found in a basement in Missouri, these hand-painted paper kites were made by Crunden-Martin Manufacturing Company in Saint Louis, Missouri which went bankrupt in 1990. I recommend keeping on eye on this space as it continues to get filled with the good stuff.
