Faherty and Huckberry Team Up for a Clothing Collection That Helps the Oceans

One of our favorite casual apparel brands, Faherty, and one of our favorite online retailers, Huckberry, have officially teamed up for a killer red-, orange-, and blue-toned capsule collection inspired by Faherty’s surf style. Why? Simple: the founders of both companies are old friends.

Here’s what Faherty had to say about getting together with Huckberry: “Alex Faherty and Huckberry’s co-founder, Andy Forch, worked together on Wall Street more than 10 years ago. During a visit to Faherty HQ, the Huckberry guys came across Faherty’s Sequoia Grove pattern, and after a few rounds of beers, they all decided to do a capsule collection.”  

Huckberry added: “Long before [Huckberry] took the plunge into the wild waters of entrepreneurship, Alex and Mike Faherty were our surf buddies. Admittedly, they did most of the surfing on those trips, like 99.9 percent. Which makes total sense — seeing as they’ve since built a successful apparel brand that combines their surf know-how and lifelong connection to the beach with Mike’s years of experience.”

And that connection to the beach is apparent in the patterning, colorways, and easy-going style of the four extremely reasonably priced pieces below.

The best part about the collab (other than it being the best sunset-hued clothes we’ve seen) is the fact that 5 percent of all sales will go to Surfrider Foundation to keep our oceans clean.

Hawaiian Shirt – $100

The Beacon Trunk also sports a DWR coating for quick-dry, an elastic waistband, and a super soft mesh liner.

Overland is the king of ski towns: Celebrating 50 years of American mountain west outerwear
How did Overland win over the mountain town
Taos Storefront 2023

Every industry has its mainstay brands that only get stronger with more competition. There will always be some new and fresh idea that challenges all those before it and tries to change the industry. Then there are those brands they face, who have been around for decades, weaving in and out of competition and outlasting every challenge thrown their way. For every new and exciting watch brand, there is a Rolex standing strong. While there are plenty of explanations for why a brand outshines every other around it, Overland Sheepskin Co. has an explanation all its own. On this, their 50th year, we look back and try to understand how this family-owned business became the King of the Mountain towns and what keeps them on top.

Back in 1973, the flagship store in Taos, New Mexico, took a bale of sheepskin and a sewing machine and began creating coats, hats, and mittens for the surrounding area. As word began to spread about their quality, the whole family had to pitch in to help out to meet the growing demand. Five decades later, with 17 stores throughout the Rocky Mountains and across the country, they have become a mainstay in the mountain and ski towns for their quality and dependability. We got a chance to sit down with Monty Goodson, manager of the Santa Fe store and a buyer for the company, to find out how they did it and how they maintain the culture that has made them who they are today.
