Ben Turnbull lives and works in London and is obsessed with the almost global dominance of the American culture machine. What separates him from the rest of Europe however is that he did something positive (and artistically negative) with his disdain for the people who call chips fries – he turned wood into carved weapon art.

Turnbull’s explanation as to why he chose his theme: ‘Force fed on violence, abused by a controlling superpower and blackmailed through patriotism, the public are ultimately as disposable as the toys they once played with’. We don’t necessarily agree with the underlying sentiment, but the wood weapon carvings (magnums, blasters, grenades) elicit a response that’s equal parts boyhood fantasy and manly desire to make shit.

If they look this good on a computer screen, they would probably look even better hanging on our mantle. Under an American flag of course.

Proof Rover

Yes, you read that correctly, and no, we don’t invoke the Land Rover without absolute certainty our claims will be delivered on. Whether you opt for the straight or slim option, each pair of pants in the Proof Rover Collection calls upon the name of a certain all-terrain vehicle for a reason–they’re durable, comfortable and capable of handling any obstacle in their way–all while looking damn good in the process. They feel like sweats, they age like raw denim and they’re as durable as the most classic work pants. When you want to check all the boxes–with all of the color options–you need to buy Proof Rover Pants today.
