Thanks in advance for your understanding. ADDITIONAL THOUGHTS This last section of the post shouldn't even be necessary, but in light of multiple negative comments and complaints on Instagram, we felt it was needed. Here's the real deal: We are not required to offer a Black Friday Sale, nor is any other company or brand. You are in fact, not entitled to it. This is a sale that many brands, like ourselves, offer as a thank you to the loyal supporters and customers who buy our products throughout the year at full price. So it is a bummer that the first comments from some people in response to us offering a discount is that A) not enough is discounted, B) the discount isn't large enough. The reason certain styles, that we consider to be our Core Products, are not included in the sale is two-fold. First, we value our partnerships with our Retailers and not all of our Retailers choose to run Black Friday sales. Out of respect for those stores that do not participate in Black Friday, we do not feel that it is right to mark-down our Core Products that many of them carry year-round. Second, we are not a sales-heavy brand and we do not rely on discounts to move our products. That is not the type of brand we have strived to build. We honestly do not believe that our Core Products should ever be on sale. If you personally do not agree with how we approach Black Friday, then this sale is not intended for you, and maybe we are not the brand for you. For those that do understand how we operate, we are always appreciative of your continued support and we thank you for loyalty.

We were first introduced to artist William Godwin through some amazing illustrations he created for an exclusive release we did with Need Supply Co. called Wash Me Over back in the Spring of 2011. After meeting him in person and following his work through various outlets, we were convinced that we had to work with him again. For some time now we've wanted to incorporate our love for spaghetti westerns, the old west and gunslingers into original artwork that we could feature through several mediums. The concept fit perfectly with our Keep The Trade Alive artist series, and we knew William was the man to bring this concept to life. The "Old West" Concept in Detail // The artwork was specifically created for the pocket lining of our new tapered-leg fit, the Strider, that we'll be releasing this September in our signature 14.5oz indigo selvedge denim. It would tell the story of a outlaw gunslinger who is posted up in a town preparing to fight a gang of rogue bandits. William's artwork for the pocket bags blew us away, and we decided we had to showcase the graphics through a few special products, available on our site now. William has printed limited edition hand-signed and numbered 11" x 17" posters, and we're offering 2 new exclusive t-shirts that are printed on high-quality Velva Sheen t-shirts. We are huge fans of Velva Sheen tees and are excited to be able to work with them for this project. The best part of these Keep The Trade Alive projects is the creative process and the sharing of ideas in a truly collaborative nature. We asked William to document his creative process as he was working out his ideas, you can explore his process below. Enjoy! ------------- Working with RGT was a dream of mine for few years, so when Karl asked if I was interested in doing a project in the vein of the classic-spaghetti-western-cowboy-of-the-west, I was ecstatic. He really liked the drawings in my sketchbook, which was super refreshing and terrifying to hear. My sketchbook has no rules: its a “no pencils aloud”, no going back, Martial Law kind of place. The Wild West if you will. Stoked and terrified we set off. I started with some super scratchy sketches for the pocket bags; I didn’t want to work this stage too hard because I wanted to leave some fun for myself in the final. We decided to run with these ideas. This is where I knew it was going to be a stellar collaboration and knew he was going to trust me to just do my thing. Along with watching some good ‘ol Clint Eastwood movies and some other classics, I set up a drawing session / photo shoot with a friend of mine, who agreed to only pose for good beer and not my proposed $20 an hour. Luckily he had everything an authentic cowboy would have just hanging on the walls in his house “ which gun do you want me to hold?” There were about half a dozen to choose from.. This was the experimental stage. I thought maybe I could knock the entire drawing out from life, since 90% of my sketchbook is life drawings. I made 2 drawings from life, trying to add my own sort of feel and tone to the drawing and not just make a drawing of my friend. If anything, I was supplying myself with a vocabulary. I printed out some of my favorite poses and kept the life drawings along side me in hopes to keep some of the life from those drawings and just went at it in my Moleskine. The easiest thing to do is to overwork a drawing and lose what makes it special. I finished the drawing and made a much smaller drawing of some bandits / outlaws for the opposing pocket bag to tie in a little storyline. I immediately jumped into the hand drawn type with some Sumi and a brush. The texture that came through the type was totally accidental; oils from my hands causing the ink to pool and push away from the semi-porous paper. I loved it. From there it just grew organically into it's own thing and just experimenting with what canvas this artwork would lend itself best to. Easily the best collaborations I have been a part of. I was deeply grateful for a chance to work with RGT. Crossing my fingers for more. WORDS & IMAGES // William Godwin
