Michael Arnot founded Owen & Fred in 2012. The company started when Mike could not find a quality and functional wallet. Michael had a difficult time finding American-made goods at an affordable cost. At the end of its first year they launched, Owen & Fred was named one of GQ Magazine’s “Best” of 2012. Since then the company’s popularity took off. Being both affordable and made in the USA, Owen & Fred’s shaving kits and duffel bags are designed with men in mind. The mens bag brand focuses on essential items men can use to make their day great. Owen and Fred makes boring, extraordinary. Expert craftsmen design bags for men using high quality materials. The Brooklyn designed products can be taken anywhere.
