What does quality mean to you?
(personally and within your industry)

Quality is about something that finds its way into your life and sticks with you. A compelling story in a film, the steadfast loyalty of a dog, a worn-in something that brings you a feeling of comfort. For purveyors of quality things, its also the result of an extreme passion for something and the desire to make that something special for others

Is timeless style & design important to you?
Why or why not?

Style comes down to individual taste and there's no right or wrong, its about identity. Design is different, its about utility. Design is universal and there are things that work and things that don't. Both God and the Devil are in the details when it comes to design. But timelessness ... well, that's how you know when you nailed it on both fronts.

What does quality mean to you?
(personally and within your industry)

To me, quality has a timeless presence – it is something that gets better with age by its patina and feel. Quality is something that I am proud to produce (in my silversmithing shop) and see being used by top hands around the world.

Is timeless style & design important to you?

I truly appreciate timeless styles just like I appreciate timeless watches, classic cars, and great horses - a timeless style with a classic look never goes out of style.

What does quality mean to you?
(personally and within your industry)

To me, quality is integrity with all of those involved. In the coffee world, a bean passes through many hands before it gets to the individual consumer so there are lots of opportunities to mask lesser quality or to present in a way that seems like quality. We believe that the only way to maintain quality is to source the very finest beans farmed and imported with the highest, most ethical standards, and then roast and prepare it in a way that showcases the care that has gone into bringing these beans to your cup.

Is timeless style & design important to you?
Why or why not?

I’m more into understated design because to me, style and design are means to an end. It is simple enough to hide behind good design or to check a box on your style because you have an item, but I am more interested in what people do with these things. Quality and design and style are all connected.

What does a pair of well broken-in boots mean to you?

The road traveled. Boots tell a story, not about what you are trying to project or where you are headed, but where you’ve been. Doors you have kicked open and what you’ve spilled on your feet, things you have had to step in and scrape off. Broken-in boots should be earned.

What does quality mean to you?
(personally and within your industry)

It's superior grade, function, and longevity. Quality within the creative world, is having an idea that is bulletproof, meaning that it’s a fresh, well-thought out concept with all angles covered so nothing can poke holes through it. True quality is undeniable, where even your competitors have to tip their hat.

Is timeless style & design important to you?
Why or why not?

Yeah, to me anything considered to be timeless goes hand-in-hand with quality. Things that get better with age and are still relevant after decades of use are very appealing to me. I like to surround myself with items that embraced the wear and tear and will continue doing so long after I’m gone. (I call them heirloom products / ideas)

What does a pair of well broken-in boots mean to you?

Invaluable. Nobody can buy what someone puts into their broken in boots. They are an extension or reflection of the person who put in the work. Like an old friend that knows you well. Every scrape and scar has something to say.
