TheGoodLife! Presents: Filson Celebrates the USFS at Brooklyn Grange Featuring Photography by Cole Barash

FilsonTheGoodLife! recently partnered with Seattle brand Filson and our longtime Family member Cole Barash to present a photography exhibition and reception celebrating the brand’s longtime support of the United States Forest Service. Held on the rooftop of the Brooklyn Grange, a fully functional organic farm in the heart of the Brooklyn Navy Yard Historic District, the celebration featured a seamlessly hung exhibition of Cole Barash’s stunning photographs of the Forest Service in action, a tented viewing of filmmaker Brandon Kuzma’s USFS short, and a first look at Filson’s new USFS dedicated collection. While guests took in the unreal sunset that followed a cathartic thunderstorm selectors Edan and Chances With Wolves provided the perfect soundtrack for a Pacific Northwest inspired picnic dinner and cocktails from Westland Distillery. Suffice to say, an amazing night was had by all. Check it out in photos by Sebastian Ramirez after the jump.

White Squares of Rice

“I was cleaning out my garage the other day and found these bags of rice confetti I had gotten off of Amazon for a shoot idea I had with a couple models.. Anyway, I never got around to shooting that idea so figured I might as well try and incorporate them into something skateboard related… My homie Mav Singh lives in my neighborhood and it always down for conceptual skate imagery… We went to the most perfect ledge ever to find that it was notched (made nearly unskateable)…Slide tricks were all that was available so we made due…I went into this knowing it was definitely on the boarder of cheesy and weirdly cool… Probably more on the cheesy side but on well.. We did it anyway.”- Gabe L’Heureux

TheGoodLife! FC x New York City FC at La Canchita

DSC_7663 TheGoodLife! FC was recently honored to be invited to participate in an All Star 5v5 tournament hosted by our home town club New York City FC. The setting was La Canchita, NYCFC’s blue concrete pitch at P.S 49 on 139th Street in the South Bronx. Teams competed in several divisions throughout the full day block party ranging from youth and development squads to NYPD and FDNY sides, to downtown stalwarts like ourselves and our friends at Bowery FC. The action was intense, the pitch unforgiving and the heat relentless but an amazing time was had by all including NYCFC Peruvian defender Alex Callens and Coach Patrick Vieira who were on hand to support local NYC football. Big up to Cheick, Anatoliy, Vince Jr, Sebas, Captain Timbo, Coach Craig and our special loan Quinn for coming out. Check out some photos by Nathan Congleton after the jump. Thanks NYCFC!
