Collaboration | Greenwich Vintage Co.

For the stylish hunter or the hunter of style: A Collaboration with Greenwich Vintage

We first met the guys from Greenwich Vintage Co. a year ago while showing at Ball & Buck's American Field in Boston. Good times ensued, friendships were born, and collaborations were created. These fun and unique pieces of neckwear are the first of our collaborative efforts (a subtle hint that there are more to come).

Huckberry & General Knot & Co.

Huckberry took the idea of a "Flash Site" and turned it upside down, blending it with a dose of honest personality, and ending up with a real and consistent source for guys to find what they're looking for. We've always felt a kinship with Huckberry and love getting together to offer a handpicked assortment of designs, especially for them. 

This time, we went one step further by designing an entire special group for this very special Huckberry offering- stop on by and dive right in!

Huxter | New England Coastal Outpost

How did Huxter come to be?

Huxter was created with the idea of marrying luxury and utility into a brand that is representative of its birthplace: the New England coast. All of us here at Huxter have ties to this rugged landscape and, over the years, we have found ourselves coming back to our home more and more often to do one thing with each other—surf.  We love the way the ever-shifting New England seasons provide us with a different ocean every morning, demanding us to adapt and accept whatever the sea wants to show us. We like how the sea dictates our relationship with our surroundings and, more importantly, with our friends who join us along the way.

This is where Huxter was born. We wanted to create something that would bring together all of those who knew what it was like to sit on a windblown beach in the fall and surf in gently falling snow in the winter.  And for those who hadn’t had this opportunity, we wanted to bring our experience to them.

Sutherland... The Wedding.

By far, one of the best parts of being in the neckwear design business is working with a couple to create special designs for their wedding day. For us, there is no greater honor. We recently had just such an honor working with a fantastic couple. 

Through the back and forth of the custom design process, we get to know our bride and groom and wanted to share a casual interview we had with the now Mr. and Mrs. Sutherland.

 

Where and when did you meet?
We had mutual friends together in high school, but never fully met until a few years after we had graduated. We both lived in the same town about 6 years ago and the rest is history.
At what moment did you know she was "the one"?
I always joke about this, but honestly we had a great 2nd or 3rd date at a bar in the town we both lived in. The date was at a sports bar and it involved buffalo wings, sweatpants and draft beer, what more could you ask for? 

 

How original (or not!) was your proposal, and did you have more than one scenario for back up?
Ha, well, kind of original I like to think. We woke up on a Sunday morning, exhausted from a late night out in NYC and I went to get breakfast at our usual spot in town. After we finished eating, I gave her a thank you card with some mushy love stuff written inside and got down on one knee. She had no idea it was happening then and there. Afterwards, I setup a surprise brunch at her parents house with some of our close friends and family.

 

Describe your wedding in 5 words...
Personal, warming, high spirited, laid back and musical

 

Aside from your custom ties, what other elements of your wedding were really unique and memorable to you?
We wanted to add as many personal touches to the wedding as possible. Being a designer by trade and my wife being hands on and creative as well, we had a great time making things and planning out unique touches. We made or pieced together almost everything. My buddy Scott letterpress printed the invitations and program cover, we made envelope liners, printed programs, seat cards and menus, hand burnt wooden wedding favors and screen printed tote bags. I think that's it? Ha. Mind you, we also had a ton of help from our family and friends with all of these little 'projects'. Another memorable factor in our wedding was having my wife's brother sing our first dance, it truly was one of our favorite parts of the wedding!

Many thanks to our friends for allowing us to share in their special day - and for being such good sports with our interview. All the best wishes for a fantastic life together!
