Holiday 2016 Gifts for Him: Filson

If you have one of those of guys to shop for who has everything, consider Filson bags, wallets, or watches. Filson is a legacy brand that has been making top quality leather, wool, and canvas goods since 1897. In fact, they still keep their manufacturing here at home in the United States, and have been creating rugged products with real brass hardware in Seattle since their conception. One of our personal favorites is the 24 Hour Tin Briefcase, which I carry to ULAH every day — packed with my gym shoes and clothes, laptop, and notepads. Stop by ULAH in Woodside Village and see which of the Filson products fits your man’s needs.

Holiday 2016 Gifts for Him: Masculine Candles

Many people may be surprised at the popularity of candles among men. More and more men are buying candles with masculine scents. Early in our development, we wanted to make our own line of masculine candles — so we partnered with local duo Wood + Wick to help create our first evolving line of candles. We named it the Boyhood Collection, inspired by memories that ULAH co-owner Buck Wimberly had as a child. He felt that others would resonate with the memories and scents.

“In my early years, I grew up in the plains of rural West Texas. I remember the baseball games, the classic small-town barbershop experiences, and being fascinated with tumbleweeds. As I grew into my teens while living in the Kansas City area, some of my favorite memories were camping and going on float trips with friends.” – Buck Wimberly

You can find these candles — and many other great holiday gifts for men — in KC’s new men’s apparel and lifestyle store, ULAH, owned by Buck Wimberly and Joey Mendez.

OUTFIELDER – Whether you practiced out in the field, or sat on the bench to watch your friends play — our combination of fresh cut grass and worn leather will stir up memories of America’s most nostalgic sport.

BARBERSHOP – Leather, cardamom, vanilla, and plum will remind you of sitting in the barber’s chair smelling the scent of tonics and pomades as you were getting a fresh clean cut.

TUMBLEWEED – Notes of sandalwood and grass make this scent reminiscent of the dry westerly winds that often blow tumbleweeds across the plains of Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas.

PUP TENT – Pine, clove, and wood smoke notes will take you back to those memorable trips with friends and family — gathering around the campfire and telling stories before you slept the night away in the middle of the woods.

FLOAT TRIP – Patchouli, amber, clove, sandalwood, smoke, saffron, whiskey, and hickory combine to stir up memories of floating down the river for hours with friends before heading back to camp.

New Men’s Apparel & Lifestyle Store in Kansas City

FacebookAnnouncement


Joey Mendez and Buck Wimberly are announcing their new business venture, a men’s apparel and lifestyle store they’ve named ULAH (pronounced yew-luh). Their store will be located at the brand new Woodside Village, a live-work-play community that is currently under construction.

Buck and Joey knew from the start that they shared a life-long passion for men’s style, but it was more recently they realized that their professional experiences could be a powerfully complimentary combination that could allow them to pursue their mutual dream. Joey was previously a buyer at Halls, and has been in the men’s apparel retail industry for over 15 years. Buck had been at Hallmark for 11 years before leaving his role as a brand strategist to help his brother rebrand his Texas company — Modern Home Renovation — as their Vice President of Brand & Marketing. Joey and Buck both attribute their current momentum to their past professional experiences.

“Leaving my 11 year career at Hallmark was one of the toughest decisions I’ve ever made. I was in a role that I really loved, with a creative and business community that was a significant part of who I had become, both personally and professionally. When my brother, Mike, asked me to join him in helping rebrand and position his business for growth, I just had this gut feeling that taking that leap would teach me things I needed to know to achieve some big picture goals I held. I ended up gaining the missing experiences I needed in order to pursue this project with Joey.” -Buck Wimberly

“I can’t help but look back and acknowledge all of the great people and experiences that have influenced who I am today. I feel like all of my various retail roles — from sales to managing and buying — have led me to this dream project we’ve decided to pursue. I’m normally not one to take risks, but this happened so organically and the timing just felt so right that I knew it was time.” – Joey Mendez

Joey and Buck created ULAH to serve today’s fashion forward and multi-dimensional man 
who is both rustic and modern,
 balancing a life that is both casual and professional, 
and whose experiences are both small-town and cosmopolitan. Their thoughtfully curated collection of products will range from accessible to aspirational and local to mainstream — serving the many dimensions of a man’s life with apparel, accessories, essentials, gifts, and masculine home decor.

ULAH is a men’s apparel and lifestyle store that makes high style and good design more accessible and relevant to more parts of a man’s every day life. ULAH helps men DRESS FOR LIFE.

ULAH is working with Hufft Projects to design and build out their space. Together, they are hoping to create a distinct retail environment and experience for men in Kansas City. The current construction and build out schedule has them positioned to open in early Fall of 2016.
