Special releases are made in very limited quantities. Not eligible for discounts. The Futurebirds x Howler Brothers collaboration is only available online and not available in our Austin stores.
We’re longtime friends and fans of Futurebirds and find common ground in artistic sensibility and musical calling. Their music bounces between cosmic rock to big old sing alongs. It's a bit indescribable, just like us. We’re excited to help kickstart their Howlin’ Summer II tour with this collaborative collection. Teamwork runs the game.
Our desire to make the Gaucho Snapshirt is one of the reasons we started Howler Brothers in the first place. We wanted to transform the vintage western shirts of the past into something technical and wearable in everyday life while maintaining a little of their quirky nature and penchant for unique, embroidered artwork. We succeeded in a big way by making ours out of lightweight, quick drying cotton-poly blend and adding a cooling mesh-lined vented back yoke to keep it cool when the temperatures are cooking. We threw in pleated chest pockets, pearl snaps, and an ever-evolving slate of custom embroidery.
