Growing up I had a reputation as a smart alec. On one memorable parents' night, a teacher reported to my mother that I was 'belligerent'. Looking back, I indeed had a distinct tendency to speak my mind. Coming as it did at an age when most girls kept quiet and followed orders, I probably stuck out like an angry sore thumb. However my wiseacre ways did endear me to the troublemaker boys in my class, and to this day I find comraderie more easily with men than with women.
Mind you, it's not that I was argumentative, it's just that I had stuff to say and couldn't be bothered to raise my hand for permission! And I think that's why I got so excited when I stumbled on the men's brand Owen & Fred. The line-up of luggage, homewares, and office supplies is mouthy and proud of it. From pens proclaiming what a 'good idea' you've had, to combs that boost your ego no matter how bad your hair day, these items don't mince words.
Like me, these goods get along best with guys, but 90% of the time they'll be a hit with girls too. The concrete soap dish provides an instant pick-me-up between his-and-hers sinks, and after a long day you don't need the ability to grow a mustache to crack open a cool one with that solid brass bottle opener (and anyway, I grow a pretty fierce 'stache when my tweezers go missing). The collection features top quality materials and construction, and it's all crafted with care, humor, and the belief that if there's something on your mind, you oughta just come out and say it!
