FORTUNE GOODS

FORTUNE GOODS is the product of a clash between the minds of Carson Monahan and Jon Sneden. Sometime circa 2015 in Austin, Texas, the trip that we call Fortune began. With passion for both design and story, the designers combined their experience, creative backgrounds, and appreciation of vintage objects to create things with a purpose, all made in the USA. From garment to accessory and old to new, we share the things we love that are tried, true, soulful, and made to last.

The House is a metaphor for our own lives, not just focusing on clothing, but the purpose behind it and what it means to create.
