Saturday night, the Tool and Tack Popup Shop commandeered The grayDUCK Gallery to host a wonderful collaboration between Portland's Wood and Faulk, Forage bow ties and Austin's Canoe.

There were passed bites from Salt + Time and beer courtesy of Thirsty Planet Brewing Company

For the dapper dresser, Forage bow ties—handmade using vintage and recycled fabrics—are the perfect accessory to complete your look.

Natalie Davis (one half of Canoe) collaborated with jewelry designer Christine Fail to create beautifully crafted cuffs and jewelry for both men and women, Fail+Canoe.

Fail+Canoe Gorges earrings, feminine with a touch of tough.

Leather cuffs from the Fail+Canoe line on display.

Hand-crafted leather keychains are some Canoe's most coveted pieces.

The prices are affordable, especially for such hard to find clothing.

Guests browsed the racks while mingling with friends and appreciating the art currently on display at The grayDUCK Gallery.

A popup shop special, Canoe carries poster-sized maps from all over the country.

Rugged work boots for the modern gentleman.

The Fail+Canoe line was a hit and sold quickly.

With both new and vintage boots to choose from, there is something for every man.
