If you recall way back in April on this blog, I featured a little men’s lifestyle and design outfit called Owen & Fred. If you’re not familiar with the brand, you’ll definitely be pleased with what you find. They stock excellent essentials that anyone can appreciate, even if you’re not a design nut. The brand’s lineup is something to behold (and check out in person if you can find a retailer near you). From brass business card holders crafted in the U.S. to collar stays & cufflinks, not to mention sturdy and durable bags for your commute and beyond, O&F really does it all – including art work for your walls.  The brand was founded on the principles of exceptional design, quality and craftsmanship back in 2012, and shot to prominence with features in, among others, GQ. I myself am fortunate enough to have put their brass bottle opener to frequent use — it’s a worthy addition to any craft beer fan’s cabinet. I’ve also tried out what they call the World’s Greatest Laundry Bag, and I can tell you that it’s rightfully named; that bag has held up well! So I knew the brand’s offerings were worth another look — particularly for those who read this blog (and thank you for that, by the way!). (Editor’s note: To get $10 off via the brand’s site, click here!).

I met up with founder Mike Arnot back at Capsule Show in July to check out what the brand had on-tap for the coming months. The assortment was, as to be expected, very well-curated and cleanly designed. The little touches an Owen & Fred product can add to even a small area aren’t to be undersold — that’s how well-made they are (in my opinion). So that’s why I’m teaming up with the brand to help you revamp your office, dorm desk or work space this fall! One lucky winner will get all the goods you need to hone in that creative focus and ramp up your productivity. Namely, we’re giving away the following, with details on how to win thereafter:
