Best Made Co. —a favorite among the stylish, urban New York City outdoorsmen for almost a decade — has embarked on a cross-country trip and landed in Los Angles. The second-ever store, and the only West Coast location, opened November 10t to service those who have been forced to merely engage in an e-commerce relationship with the brand. Located in LA’s La Brea neighborhood at 145 South La Brea Ave., the sprawling, 2,700-square-foot outlet is sure to become a destination for Angelenos much like it has been for New Yorkers for years.
Founded in 2009 by Peter Buchanan-Smith in New York City’s TriBeCa neighborhood, Best Made Co. is an apparel and lifestyle brand with a reverence for craftsmanship, functionality, and quality. The company stands for a life of adventure, using your hands to create things, and maintaining a connection with the great outdoors. They quickly established themselves as the go-to brand for those who wanted to live a stylish lifestyle, but demanded excellence with no fuss.
The lineup includes clothing and accessories, home goods, camping gear, tools, and blades. Every Best Made item — from the apparel to the gadgets — is simple, utilitarian, and well-made.
The new shop in Los Angeles will offer an Axe Bar (you read that right — an actual Axe Bar), because Best Made’s axes are arguably the most recognizable and popular items from the stock. In addition, The Snug will be the store’s very own gallery space, rotating a well curated selection of exclusive products from local partners. Not enough? You’re in luck – the store will also house an archery range (that’s what a New York company can do when they get the square footage Los Angeles has to offer). Customers can use the range for fun or practice.
If you don’t live in LA or New York, fear not — Best Made Co. has a thriving and engaging online shop to ensure you are well-equipped no matter where your outdoor adventures take you.
