Introducing the first shoppable home for guys. It’s Huckberry in the flesh.
Artisan-made furniture from Room & Board. Unique finds from Mixed Nuts—the American Pickers of California. Loads of our favorite brands, including Taylor Stitch, Triple Aught Design, Juniper Ridge and American Giant. And a silver blue cherry on top: a mint-condition 1965 Porsche 356 C.
It's all for sale at the Huckberry Holiday Home, the first shoppable home for guys in the U.S.
From Dec. 9th through Dec. 16th, we're taking over a flat here in San Francisco and creating a retail experience that blends shop, magazine, and if we're really being honest with ourselves, party. We can't wait for you to see it.
Sitting down with Huckberry’s Brand Director, to hear her picks for the holiday season.
*We pull back the curtain, and show you what Huckberry is shopping this holiday season. Also check out Huckberry co-Founder Andy's holiday picks.
Ali Ruhfel comes to the west coast from the lush landscape of Newport, Rhode Island. She’s the Brand Director, and you can credit Huckberry’s impeccably curated offerings to her dedicated oversight.
If Ali’s not in Yosemite, she’s in Tahoe. If she’s not out bouldering, she’s camping in Big Sur. And the gear and goods in our shops are, naturally, an outpouring from her life. She’s got the acumen to outfit us better than we can outfit ourselves, and in everything gear/goods/grooming, she’s the most accurate weathervane in the biz. Here’s her picks for the holiday season.
From Ugly Sweaters to a Porsche 912, this week’s Diversions have it all.

Undervalued for its artistic capabilities, tape has found a new home on the street.
When you think of street art or street installations, graffiti comes to mind. The art of using spray paint to convey a certain visual (or message) in public spaces has lead to a crack down by law enforcement and unwarranted negativity towards the artist who create it.
And so, reacting against the interference of the cops, street art has taken a new form recently: tape. Removing the destructive features of previous work, this form of art allows the artists to express themselves in a variety of forms and environments. Below is a group of artist whose work will leave you visually inspired by their creations, all made from a few simple rolls of tape.
When Filson meets Jeep, a near perfect 4×4 is born.
You know how we feel about the Filson Brand (it's a little thing called love). Their products epitomize what we cherish about American-made goods, and when we found out that they were now fusing their brand into a Jeep, we knew a good thing just got better.
The offspring of two rugged American icons, the AEV Brute Double Cab Jeep sports the same values that Filson puts into every product. It's tough enough for earth’s most rugged environments, yet stylish enough to get a tip of the hat from any car enthusiast. It's an instant American classic.
A collection of America’s crown jewels: our national forests.
Wood: you can't eat it. But you can eat off of it, with it, because of it, inside a house made of it, on a train riding atop it, while scribbling a note on it, using a No. 2 pencil. Wood's nearly immeasurable value as a resource is plain, as is the need to carefully manage and preserve the habitats where wood lives.
Huckberry loves a healthy forest (we do, it's true), so we respect groups with values like those of The Forest History Society, a non-profit, non-political organization whose mission is to collect, identify, and preserve the entire history of America's national forests and our interactions with them—the natural habitats, the fires, the logging communities, the paper mills—in order to educate current and future generations with the goal of promoting conservation as a lasting and meaningful legacy.
Sitting down with Huckberry’s co-Founder, to hear his picks for the holiday season.
*We pull back the curtain, and show you what Huckberry is shopping this holiday season.
Andy Forch was raised in the sunny shores of Florida and the serpentine waterways of Virginia. He's a co-Founder of Huckberry, and the general force behind the style and voice of the site.
His inspiration comes from a personal conviction that there needs to be a site that appeals to guys like him—men in the middle ground between high style and the rugged outdoors. His picks reflect that inclination, from the everyday practical (nailclippers) to the refined style of a finely made umbrella.
The Finalists and Winner of our Adventure Contest. Inspiration within.
The results are in. The ballots have been counted. And, barring a Florida recall, the winner is decided. We judged adventures by the inventiveness of the trip, the quality of the adventure, and the overall inspirational appeal. In other words—did the trip resonate with us? Did we talk about it at lunch, after work—did we say, Damn, I’ve got to go do that.
The submissions were many and the selection process arduous, but our staff was up to the challenge. And, in the end, we found a worthy winner. He is below, along with five finalists. In the coming weeks, look for full accounts of these trips. And, a big thank you to all who submitted. We were humbled and inspired by all of your exploring. See you out there.
An urban wooded workout where we carry big rocks, jump walls, and get really sweaty.
It’s a common problem—you live in the city, but need the outdoors. You work a 9-5, but need to a workout. So how to train in nature while maintaining urban life? Enter Mr. Courage.
Josh Courage, of Courage Performance, has a solution: your local city park—it’s got more workout acumen than we’d thought. He took us into SF’s Presidio for a morning workout carrying rocks, jumping fences, and doing burpees in the morning dew.
