Announcing Hank: Always American-made

hanksmall 400x133 Announcing Hank: Always American made

Yes, we’ve been on an extended hiatus — but we’re back with some very exciting news to announce. In early 2013, we’ll be launching a new venture called Hank. Our mission is simple: we want to support American manufacturers. We’ll help them sell their products to a wider audience and grow their businesses. Hank will be your source for high-quality American-made clothing and goods.

We’ve already identified over 150 American companies, from one-man operations to organizations with over 1,500 employees, that make outstanding products in the United States. Despite the abundance of products out there, it’s not always easy to discover and purchase them. Hank is changing that. We’re working with several manufacturers and building a collection of goods and clothing that’s made in America. We’ve detailed a bit more in our introductory post: What is Hank?

For more information, sign up for e-mail updates at, follow the Hank blog, and get in touch with us on Facebook and Twitter.

Pointer Connor Boots

 Pointer Connor Boots

Our apologies for the not-so-frequent posting as of late, but to be honest it’s just that we haven’t seen that much post-worthy stuff out there lately. We expect that to change with the Spring/Summer 2011 collections dropping soon, like these Connor boots from Pointer. We’re big fans of the moccasin-esque look of the boot.
