What Does the Name Mean?

With that out of the way, "The Hounds," has been name of the brand since it was just an idea. It actually existed before any research and development, before we knew we'd make oxfords. And it all had to do with the fact that all my siblings had dogs which were lovingly referred to as "The Hounds." Between 4 siblings total, a holiday could include as many as 5 full sized dogs stampeding through the kitchen. That's roughly 300 lbs of domesticated beast, all of whom were convinced they were lap dogs.

Truth be told, it's also a very versatile name. When I originally created the concept, I'd been brainstorming with my brother. He had a very trad/blue blazer style, and I had grown up in the skate and local music scenes, but this was a name that had excited us both. Granted, it painted a different picture for each of us.
