Tour Blog 31: Roadside Rex

Valley of the Vans. Cadillac Ranch. Zoo-over-Zurich. We’ve been to all of ‘em!

When it comes to tours (and vacations), we love a big-time destination, we really do. But it’s those stops in between that seem to create the best memories, and really capture our imaginations.

Highway attractions—don’t miss ‘em!

We found Roadside Rex as we were heading to see that California starlight.

The skies out west were bigger than we’d ever seen before, and so were the Tricera Tacos.

Roadside Rex was a little slice of perfection for us. We love it when people say “They sure don’t make ‘em like that anymore…”—and there’s really no other way to describe Rex, the three-story dino who greets every adventurous traveler on that westbound highway.

We left the dinosaur café with bellies full of fries and malts, and a van full of Roadside Rex tees…and by popular demand, onesies! And now, the fun folks at The Good Ones Clothing are selling them! Get yours today. www.TheGoodOnes.com 

See you soon. And remember, take one extra photo today, in front of your own roadside attraction. Use your imagination!

Crew Q & A: Paige Strong

What do you do at The Good Ones HQ?

Well, I tend to do a little bit of everything… I field many of the CustomerService@ inquiries and love working with customers to make sure they (and their kids) are happy with their Good Ones order. I play a part in the new style/development and design process. One of our goals is for everything to be soft and comfy so I love working with our team to produce these items that kids just love to wear more than anything else in their closet.

 

Which TGO item is your favorite and why?

It’s hard to choose just one. I really love them all or I would have probably noted a change at some point in the design/production process.  I have said from the beginning that I’d love one of the Road Trip hoodies in my size. It is one of our softest styles. It has enough big pockets to hold about anything. I love the thumbholes and I especially like the reflective flap on the back for bike safety. It took some extra planning to have that part produced correctly and trust me it was worth it.

 

What is your current go to album?

I have grown to really like all types of music so choosing just one is pretty tough. I can’t get enough of the Garden State movie soundtrack. It is a great mix of artists and I could just listen to it over and over… and I do. It makes me happy.

 

What do you like to do for fun outside of work?

I get to do lots of fun things like play with my dogs, go on bike rides, go shopping, hang out with my boyfriend, family and friends …etc. There are also “fun” things that I do that might not seem fun to everyone else. I am a DIY type of person and I am always trying to come up with creative ways to make something fun and new out of other things. Looking for a diamond in the rough to repaint or refinish is fun for me and it gives me a good feeling that I made something new out of something old.

What / where is your next adventure going to be?

Summer fun, at the lake! We have a family lake cottage and I am so looking forward to the good times with friends and family at the lake this summer.  My boyfriend, Shad, and I have an Australian Shepard and she loves jumping off the pier into the water to fetch a Frisbee—over and over and over again. She has the best time playing in the water. We have a new little puppy that has not experienced the lake yet but I think she will love it too. Can’t wait!

 

Tour Blog 30: National Bike Week!

Did you know that May is National Bike Month here in the good ol’ U S of A?

That’s pretty awesome.

The Good Ones Clothing has been a supporter of “active transportation” since day one, from our high-visibility rear flap to super-reflective piping and details. 

So imagine the hoops we happily jumped through to be a part of Kickstart! in Fort Wayne, IN. This new festival is this Saturday, May 17th and celebrates all things cycling, art, fashion and music—right in the heart of the city. It’s family friendly, too, with a special kids’ ride at 10AM!

The Good Ones Clothing will be part of the Kickstart Expo with the new Anything Ever assortment, and special, one-of-a-kind and one-time-only deals! Visit us on Saturday, May 17th from 8:00am – 2:00pm at Freimann Square (200 E. Main St., Fort Wayne, IN, 46802).

What could be better? Well, The Final Hurrahs will be on stage performing at 3PM!!

Bring your bike, your helmet and your dancing shoes, and have a great time!

But there’s more!

 

Later that same day, we’ll all be part of Bike to The B-Side at One Lucky Guitar, right in the heart of Bricktown. This special Kickstart “after-party” starts at 6:30PM and will feature food & drinks—and another live set of music from The Final Hurrahs, from 7:15–8:15PM!

 

This one is also fun for the whole family. Here are all the details! (https://www.facebook.com/events/1464280520474661/)

RSVP, and invite your friends!

Oh, and don’t forget: entry to each of these events is FREE!

See you Saturday, right?

Crew Q & A: Jake Sauer

 

What do you do at The Good Ones HQ?

I’m one of the art directors for The Good Ones, taking a story or concept for an item of clothing and developing fun visuals to make it one-of-a-kind. I’m also the illustrator of the Final Hurrahs and I feel that I try to give this lil’ world of rock-n’-rollers a consistent, lovable look. I play a roll in branding elements too, like hang tag development or web promotions

 

 

Which items have you designed?

Quite a bit!
- Bullfrog Polo
- Roadside Rex Tee
- Rock on Four Legs Tour Tee
- Dance, Dance, Dance Long Sleeve
- Fizzy Soda Tee
- Master of Complications Tee
- Patches on Musician’s Unite! Shirt
- Safe at Home Tee
- Scallywag Tee
- Subway Tee
- Take a Stand Tee/Onesie
- Turn it Up Tee
- World Tour Jacket
- The B-Side Tee

 

 

Which item is your favorite and why?

Got a three way tie here. I really like the World Tour Jacket because of all the subtleties of the inside pattern and the overall vintage vibe it gives. There’s something special about  the Fizzy Tee and Turn It Up tees as well as I was really pleased with how the graphics turned out.

 

 

What do you like to do for fun outside of work?

Well, I often find myself designing (and attending shows) for some of my favorite bands, whether local or national acts. I’ve always enjoyed the art of gig poster design and I feel that it sometimes shows up in my Good Ones work:) Recently, I also illustrated a kids’ book, Hubert the Spider, (hubertthespider.com) that was a collaboration project from a band connection.

Biking around town is something I like to do too.

 

When / where is your greatest next adventure?

I’m in the beginning stages of organizing a local music event that I think should be a fun endeavor. In addition to that, I may get the chance to travel outside of the USofA—just like our favorite dog band!

 

Crew Q & A: Olivia Fabian

What do you do at The Good Ones HQ?

I do a little bit of everything!  From managing production to planning launch parties and everything in between. A few of my favorite items on the ole to do list  are meeting new folks through customer service, dreaming up fun promotions (like our Heroville coloring contest), managing The Good Ones’ Instagram and blogging. I feel so lucky to have such a fun job!

 

 

Which TGO item is your favorite and why?

The Anything Ever ¾ Raglan! Those moments and memories with the good ones in your life are better than anything ever… The message is powerful and rings true. I also like this shirt because it’s so versatile. It looks so cute on little boys at baseball practice and equally as adorable on little girls, paired with skinny jeans and patent leather boots.

 

 

What is your current go to album?

I am currently really digging anything by Nancy Sinatra and Francoise Hardy but will always love The Zombies, The Velvet Underground and The Rolling Stones. Also, an often-overlooked gem for retro music lovers is Shocking Blue.

 

What do you like to do for fun outside of work?

I own a small company called OFabz Swimwear that sells retro bikini  and takes me on many exciting adventures. I also love going to rock ‘n’ roll shows with my wonderful soul mate, Derek. And on sunny days I go on walks with my little pup named Bowie T. Stardust and fly kites.

 

What words do you live by?

You can do anything you want in life.

 

 

What / where is your next adventure going to be?

I am currently on my greatest, next adventure showing our line of cutie bikinis at Fashion Week in Austin, Texas.
