One late June afternoon I was out on the lake, only to find myself stranded just off shore in a 12-foot fishing boat. It was a gorgeous summer day, so the fact that I couldn’t get the 9.9 Evinrude motor to fire didn’t seem to be too concerning. I rustled up our old oak inlay oars and began to nonchalantly propel myself across a calm lake. What struck me in the 20 minutes that it took me to get back to the cabin was how one tiny acorn could evolve into a structure of such strength and magnitude and then be fashioned into something so practical that could be used to propel me to my final destination. It was this event that sparked Oak + Oar.
After nearly two years in the works I am pleased to present the initial collection from Canadian-based brand Oak + Oar. ‘Summer Loitering’ is the initial offering that includes a collection of tees, hoods and a tight knit collection of men’s accessories. Drawing inspiration from cabin lifestyle and the comradery of weekends at the lake, Oak + Oar seeks to bring to market a unique range of clothing and accessories synonymous with cabin culture. Whether it is a gusting sub-zero December evening huddled around the wood stove shooting the breeze over a game of poker or a scorching July afternoon out on the water with good company, you are sure to find Oak + Oar.
If you have any questions about the current collection feel free to fire away.
