TGIF Shopping ( & Giveaway!) Ball and Buck Launches Denim

You’ve been relying on them for outwear, dopp kits, leather coasters, fishing nets, and yes even shotguns, since Ball and Buck was founded in 2008. Now, the all-American company “born and bred with red, white, and blue running through our veins,” is introducing denim to the fold.

After fine tuning the perfect fit in pants, Ball and Buck decided it was finally time to offer the 6 Point Pant in denim.

So why now? According to Ball and Buck CEO Mark Bollman, it was always part of the long-term product strategy. “This is the same way we develop all the products we sell – start by building the highest quality products in the world, then take them into the to field and beat the shit out of them,” he explains. “It’s only after they have exceeded our high expectations of quality do we go into production and offer them to our customers.”

Like everything from the men’s wear brand, the denim is sourced from North Carolina’s Cone Mills, where it’s woven on shuttle looms to produce two unique denims: Selvage and Distilled Indigo.

Both denims features camo pockets and shotgun shell rivets

“A couple of the details that make me the most excited is our fit, which doesn’t have the “denim diaper, extra material that sags beneath your behind,” says Bollman. “Also we we’re fed up with our jeans coming apart at the seat seam, so we’ve reinforced that seam for added strength and durability.

As for what’s next: “More fits, more denim weights, and unique material qualities, plus an up cycling denim program.”

Available now at and in store ($188 for Distilled Indigo; $218 for Selvage).

The 10 Best Packable Jackets That Every Serious Outdoorsman Should Own

A great packable and lightweight jacket can be one of the best items in your backpack for a number of reasons. From unexpected rain showers and a drop in cooler temperatures to a makeshift pack cover or even a pillow in a pinch, packable jackets are always good to have on hand. That's why you should have several different kinds of packable jackets in your closet waiting to be packed for your next adventure.

Depending on where you live or when you plan to explore the outdoors, there are three kinds of jackets you should pick from. The first is a packable shell that is lightweight and just right to keep you dry during wet weather. The second is a down jacket with some sort of stuff sack to keep you warm when the temperature dips.

VRST Is the Best Alternative to Lululemon’s Athleisure We’ve Seen So Far
vrst athleisure line 2021 q1

This is not a story about Lululemon. It is a story about VRST, a Dick's Sporting Goods exclusive line of athleisure clothing, including commuter pants, joggers, tees, hoodies, and other easy-wearing lifestyle pieces that you'll want to wear every day, especially when the occasion calls for something that both breathes well and looks put together. But it's about Lululemon in the same way that the subtweet you sent was really about Drake even if you never mentioned Drake specifically. (We all knew who you were talking about.) Let me explain.

VRST is about Lululemon even if it never mentions Lululemon because Lululemon crushes with its ABC Pant, which stands for Anti Ball Crushing and, as its name suggests, is very comfortable. I have no fewer than five pairs of them, and I've owned more because they look like a pair of khakis but feel like a pair of running shorts. And in my home in the South, where the interminable summers are trying to crush my family jewels for six months out of the year, minimum, they are a godsend. Playing golf? Yes. Attending a Sunday service? No doubt. From date night to work event, they are so versatile and comfortable and flattering that I bought them in every color. To date, my only complaint is that, after repeated wears, they can retain the stink of old sweat the same way your workout tees can hold past funk. Lululemon's essentials, from tees to pants to polos, are guy favorites the world 'round, which is quite an accomplishment for a company previously synonymous with women's workout tights.
