February 2023 Update


Pants finally arrived this month! Having 2100 pairs of pants land on your doorstep is a sight to behold, but having to count them was even more of a feat. Shout out to my mother and James for helping take inventory. Our first two shows went really well and we had a great time meeting everyone at Troutfest and the Texas Fly Fishing and Brew Fest. It’s awesome knowing that more people can now enjoy the comfort of our Oasis fabric on a daily basis. People really resonate with the idea of having a pair of pants for any & every adventure. 


We lost a dear friend and mentor to our business this month. Damon Devito, one of the wonderful professors who helped CHIEF during our time at the University of Virginia, passed away last month. He was a great mind and a kind soul who deserves much longer than a few sentences in our newsletter, but I also know he would give me a hard time for making this longer than it needs to be. Suffice it to say, we will miss him dearly and look forward to seeing him on the other side of eternity.


If you have purchased a pair of our QuickDraw pants, please take a second to leave us a review. Nothing builds trust in a brand like positive reviews and it should only take about 30 seconds to do! Secondly, if you haven’t ordered a pair of QuickDraw pants, why not?! Spring is here with summer just around the corner and there isn’t a better pair of pants to wear when it’s warm outside. Lastly, please give us a follow on Instagram, and join our community on Discord. It’s a great space to handle separate channels for the various topics/interests of our community. Hope to see y’all there!

May mountains move before you,
