Founded by Emil and Sandy Corsillo, the brothers behind the rugged line of accessories The Hill-Side, Hickoree's shares the label's enthusiasm for things that are as handsome as they are hard-wearing. For a modern, web-based store, the product line up is based on an old school "they-sure-don't-make-'em-like-they-used-to" attitude. What's more, the diverse range of merchandise is constantly being refreshed with new finds—from Japanese grooming products and stylish finds celebrating American heritage to the stuff you always wanted to buy as a kid. We asked the guys to cull through the shop's current crop of goods and give us their suggestions for what like-minded men might want to unwrap.
