Smith x Howler Bros

For any angler, even a bad day on the water is better than a good day spent indoors. To honor those who are passionate about living life beyond walls, Smith joined forces with Howler Brothers - craftsmen of limited-run, outdoor lifestyle apparel and goods - to launch a capsule collection fit for avid adventurers, thrill seekers and tequila drinkers.
