"Ball and buck" is an old-time term referencing the form in which one should load their musket in order to make a greater impact on a target. That's what the men here are all about — they want you to walk away knowing you appreciate the quality, classic craftsmanship and for you to join in their pride of made-in-America production. For that reason, the Ball and Buck team has created more than just a clothing store — it's a lifestyle brand. Attached to the domestically stocked shop is a barbershop offering straight-razor shaves, shampoos, and buzz cuts. "The clothing Ball and Buck sells will last a long time — and not just until next season, we're talking years," Galas says. "If you appreciate high quality things that you get a lot of wear out of, you need to visit and prepare to show some American pride."
