This week asked famed NYC restaurateur Michael Chernow (The Meatball Shop) about the objects and inspirations he surrounds himself with.

Knockarounds made the list.



Preview: Limited Edition Bring Back The Brown Fort Knocks


If you’re a fan of Knockaround, you’ve probably heard us mention “Product Etcetera” and “Bring Back The Brown” a lot recently.

Here’s the low-down:  Product Etcetera is a design studio and brand based down the street from us here in San Diego. Last Spring they organized Bring Back The Brown, a grassroots campaign aimed at convincing the San Diego Padres baseball club to restore brown as their official team color. I thought that was a brilliant idea, so Knockaround signed on as one of the “Starting 9” sponsors of the campaign.

As part of our involvement with the Bring Back The Brown project, we thought it would be cool to  team up with Product Etcetera for our July Limited Edition.

So here they are, Limited Edition Bring Back The Brown Fort Knocks.

Each pair is part of a numbered set of 400, which includes frosted brown frame / golden-yellow lens Fort Knocks, an embroidered commemorative patch, custom brown protective pouch, a numbered edition card, together with a couple other inserts making each individual set unique. All items are packaged in a hand-screenprinted box.  Each set retails for $35.

Approximately 250 sets will be available on starting tomorrow, Thursday, July 28th.  The rest of the edition will be available at 5&A Dime in San Diego (7/30) and (8/1).

So, pick up a pair tomorrow and help us BRING BACK THE BROWN!



UScoop DC Happy Hour Recap

When our friends over at Uscoop told us they were putting together a happy hour for interns in Washington DC at famed Georgetown bar, George, we knew we wanted to be a part of it.  There were plenty of cold beverages to help the crowd beat the heat, and plenty of Knockarounds to help them combat that brutal East Coast summer sun.  Clearly, a good time was had by all.
