When it comes to buying gifts for men, you may yawn when faced with the typical dopp kits, ties, collar stays, key chains, flasks and bottle openers. But that’s because you haven’t seen those items as imagined, designed and produced by Brooklyn-based Owen & Fred.
Founded in 2012, Owen & Fred design their own men’s goods and accessories – from duck canvas duffel bags to tongue-in-cheek hair combs. Their travel items combine a manly ruggedness with sexy tailoring. Beautifully designed gifts for the home such as bottle openers and key chains become items to covet, rather than to stuff in a drawer. Their clever little journals, ballpoint pens with sayings and hand stitched billfolds are both fun and functional. Stamped leather goods ranging from key luggage tags to coasters make great stocking stuffers. Made in the US, their stylish goods are carried in such impressive stores as the Guggenheim, SF MoMA, and the Institute of American Architects.
Great-looking duffel bags are made with the heaviest canvas fabric, have a Cordura nylon interior, soft leather touches, a screen-printed message on the interior and come in various colors:
Custom brass stamped collar stays, canvas and nylon accessory trays and their handmade essential notebooks are guaranteed to delight:
Beautiful stamped leather goods include custom luggage tags, ‘Hey Handsome’ key chains and paisley coasters:
The Franklin wallet is made of Horween leather and is hand stitched. Available in various colors:

The World’s Greatest Laundry Bag sports a message to which we can all relate:

They also carry unusual items such as Cigar Box Speakers and cuff links made from real football pigskin:
From their original luggage tag to a full line of goods designed and made in the United States, Owen & Fred products are loved. Sold by over 100 retailers in the United States and around the world, Owen & Fred transforms the boring into extraordinary. Simply put: Men’s Goods. Made Great.
