Ashley James and Billy Moore of Art and Survival have brought their Southern hospitality to the menswear world, and created more than enough earnest, well-made goods to go around. Beyond that, they make stuff you'd actually want to wear—a lot. Individually, they run Ruell and Ray and Cause and Effect, which is proving that Americana doesn't have to be as stiff and rigid as it prefers its jeans.
When James and Moore aren't making high-quality denim, belts, leather goods, or sipping on grade-A moonshine, they're also collaborating on the coolest accessory that any dude can wear, wayfarer sunglasses.
Art and Survival hooked up with another Southern brand, Shuron which is located in Greenville, S.C., and worked on two different sets of sunglasses that feature polarized lenses. "I have always been a huge fan of Oakley Frogskins, so I wanted to take the classic frames from Shuron and add mirrored lenses," James told us. "We were deciding on brands to bring on board for the Art and Survival shop and Shuron made complete sense - considering they are made in the USA and they are located about 30 miles from where I grew up."
