With summer now here in all it’s infinite glory (and, in our case, abject hayfever misery), we’ve well and truly turned our attention to travel here at Coolector HQ. Given our preoccupation with travelling now, we’ve spent vast swathes of our time looking for brands that get us in the mood and play to our nomadic mindset where we want to be flying around the globe with a backpack full of craft ales and this search leads us squarely to the doorstep of a fantastic brand by the name of Pilot & Captain who boast an array of T-shirts and accessories that can’t fail to appeal to of a similar travelling frame of mind.
Pilot & Captain are a fantastically creative brand that are built upon a love of the golden era of travel, a time when it was really a luxury and airports where a magical place full of wonder and, truth be told, this is an era that we’d definitely want to experience here at The Coolector. The smashing American brand were founded by a couple of decidedly creative chaps by the name of Dustin Summers and Jason Kernevich who, in actual fact, are the brains behind the equally as impressive design agency, Heads of State.
