About Ball and Buck
Ball and Buck is an outfitter made for the sporting gentleman. Our mission is to build products and experiences that set the benchmark for quality and become more valuable with age. Founded in 2008 when the US economy was at its worst, Mark Bollman, founder and president, created Ball and Buck as a way to help support American jobs while setting the standard for quality products. We're an all American company, born with red, white, and blue in our veins. Through hard work, honesty, and integrity, Ball and Buck is bringing America back to her roots.
The things that make us American are the things that we specialize in creating. By incorporating the freedom and honor fought by our forefathers, while emphasizing American quality over foreign quantity, we're refocusing on the pride that American once had. We are against labor exploitation and the the best way to ensure that doesn't happen is by having a personal relationship with each vendor we partner with. We know the name of each person that has helped to hand make our products and plan to keep it that way.
An Endless Pursuit of Quality
Our heritage takes us back to a time when men cared about their appearance and understood that there was no substitute for quality. In our eyes, quality means endurance and perseverance. Our endless pursuit of quality begins with our materials that we source from around the world. After finding the highest quality materials we craft each product by hand, right here in America. This enables us to offer the long-lasting products to our customers. We’re also deeply invested in American Jobs and know that retaining America’s ability to make things, is critical to our long-term viability.
We built the Ball and Buck Experience taking inspiration
from our history and America's never ending philosophy
to always do better and work harder.
Our founder, Mark Bollman, comes from a long line of outdoorsmen and sportsmen. His father, grand father, and great grandfather all share a supreme love of the outdoors - something they shared with Mark from a very young age. From hunting ducks in Michigan, fly fishing the great rivers of the West, and camping in the Smokey Mountains, the outdoor lifestyle isn't just an inspiration for Ball and Buck, but rather is baked into every product and decision we make as a company. Below you’ll find a small selection of photos of Mark’s family heritage.
The things that make us American,
have always been the things we create.

The 6 Point Pant
The Pair of Pants You'll Never Take Off. At Ball and Buck we were tired of putting on another company's pants each morning.

When we set out to create our Signature Leather, we knew there was pretty much only one company we wanted to partner with: Horween Leather Company. Founded in 1905, Horween is undoubtedly one of the most respected, if not the most respected, leather tanneries in the country. Our Signature Leather is a Latigo Leather. That means it’s a combination chrome and veg tan, which gives it incredibly durability. Horween sources their hides from all over the upper midwest. The team at Horween hand picks the best hides, and the top 15 percent go into creating Ball and Buck’s Signature Leather. It takes the craftsmen at Horween 30 days, with some 35 steps in total, to process our Signature Leather. No detail is overlooked.Shop Signature Leather
