Buck Mason was founded in Venice Beach, and it feels like home here. It's where Sasha and I both landed after trekking out from the Midwest. We met first as neighbors, a stone’s throw from the Venice Pier, although we didn't become close friends until later when we'd both moved Downtown. We cut our teeth in Venice, navigating a town we learned to love. From Jim Morrison to Billy Hoyle, there’s a real tradition of folks making it look easy here, but that wasn’t our experience. For Sasha and I, it was big dreams and bigger failures, but somehow we saved a scrap of the confidence that got us here. In 2015, there was no other place we could’ve opened our first outpost. 8 years and 25 stores later, we've moved our Men’s collection to a larger space down the street. It’s a huge milestone for us, a marker of our growth and a reminder that Venice will always be home.
