If the name Skotch Kooler doesn’t bring back memories, its signature red Wallace tartan certainly will. Established in 1952, this stylish collection of outdoor gear was a symbol of midcentury leisure so iconic, it even made an appearance in an episode of Mad Men. After disappearing from the retail scene in the 1970s, the brand was revived in 2017 by two brothers, Patrick and Mark Hunt, and their childhood friend, Paul Axt. Inspired by fond childhood memories of the Skotch Kooler, and believing the brand was primed for a modern-day comeback, they purchased the trademarks with a plan to update the designs for today’s lifestyle while still retaining their timeless charm.
