Wrangler invited us to take part in their #WrangerXLeatherman challenge. To celebrate the collaboration of these two iconic American brands, our task was to carve a wooden spoon using nothing but the Leatherman tools supplied, easier said than done. After several attempts deciding what length to make the handle on our spoon (a very important decision) we finally started chiseling and filing away. Having not done any DesignTech since Secondary School it took me a little while to find my groove but I’m pleased to say that we did actually manage to make a spoon! Check out the photo evidence below. This will be taking pride of place on our kitchen fridge!
Having come together on this partnership Wranger have produced a new version of Wrangler jeans, alongside special editions of two Leatherman tools – crafted to match the jeans you’ll be transporting them in. I’ll say that I’m pretty enamoured by the toolkit, I’ve had a similar multi-function, does-everything pen knife for a few years now and they are just insanely useful. Although you may not be carrying them around all the time, they’re really handy when at festivals, camping, holidays, moving house and a thousand other little jobs that are impossible to list. No self respecting gent should be without one.
To celebrate the partnership they’ve also created a short video with legendary lifestyle photographer and Instagrammer @DanRubin. He discusses his love for his craft and obsession with vintage cameras while he travels through the streets of London looking to capture the perfect shot.
