Madrona’s new men’s shop, Hammer and Awl, is the culmination of owner Erin Krohn’s 17-year obsession with retail design, shopping and fashion—especially accessories, which she calls the perfect way to “define your style and be unique.” The former interior designer opened Hammer and Awl to provide men (and women who lean toward a masculine aesthetic) with a resource for artisanal goods made by small, niche producers in the United States. Krohn stocks local and regional brands (Michael Cepress scarves, bandanas and ascots; select clothing from Pendleton’s Portland Collection; and stainless single-blade, lock-back knives from Scout Seattle), but also carries hats from New York Hat Co., Defy bags from Chicago, and wool vests and scarves made in the US of A by iconic outfitter Woolrich.
