OLE MASON JAR is a men’s clothing and lifestyle brand founded in North Carolina in March 2013 by Filipe Ho and Bradley Rhyne. We make clothes that are tailored for a great fit, using excellent craftsmanship and only the highest quality fabrics. We don't stop there though, because it is about more than just making a great product, but where and how it is made too. With an emphasis on revitalizing the American textile industry, everything we make is handmade by second and third generation seamstresses in some of the last remaining factories at the heart of this great country.
Why Ole Mason Jar?
We both attended Appalachian State University, and had aspirations of starting our own clothing line ever since we graduated. Our main reason for starting OLE MASON JAR, was as a way to give back (through our buy a shirt, feed a family program). Additionally, we have felt there has always been a noticeable gap in the marketplace for trend inspired southern design that also has a great fit and is made in America.
Why Made in America?
It is incredibly important to us, and something that is part of our overall mission. We are dedicated to playing our part in revitalizing the American textile industry, as everything we make is handmade by second and third generation seamstresses in some of the last remaining factories at the heart of this great country.
We draw inspiration from a lot of things, some being other designers like a Billy Reid, and some being actual places or things. Loving to travel, we are always on the watch for fashion and style in different cultures. Here in the US, we are always looking for things that look cool and vintage that can also influence us (say an old suitcase or vintage item from the 1960’s). Things that are simple yet tell a great story is what we are all about.
Our customer values and appreciates exceptional quality, wants something that fits great and also places an emphasis on being able to tell a great story about the brands they wear. Our brand is about more than singular pieces, as each one has a unique and great story behind them.
Our button downs are the staple of our brand and are what we feel to be the best button downs on the market. We have crafted and designed every inch of these shirts with an incredible amount of detail, and also have some of the best seamstresses in the world making them right here in our home state.
Up next are polos and leather belts/wallets (made right here in North Carolina of course). We are very excited for continuing to grow our brand and become a major player in the landscape of mens fashion.
