As the temperature dips and the leaves begin to change colors, it ushers in the fall season – the optimal time to explore the outdoors.

Fall marks the start of hunting season and makes an ideal time to get outdoors on the East Texas lakes to fish.

The Brown Duck, located at 2324-B Judson Road in Longview, offers the perfect clothing for those fall outdoor adventures. With a vast selection of Carhartt, including accessories for pups, The Brown Duck is certain to have you feeling fashionably rugged as you explore the outdoors.

If you’re looking for a four-legged companion, Thurman Labs in Carthage breeds Labradors as family friendly dogs. They also make excellent hunting companions and many of the pups descend from dogs that have been named Grand Master Champions in various dog shows, according to Matt Ballard, who co-owns the business with his wife and their family.

Teague Park in Longview served as the backdrop for this issue’s fashion shoot. With a pond, fishing pier, pavilions, hike and bike trail, amphitheater and more, Teague Park offers a plethora of outdoor, family friendly fun.

Thank you to Peters Chevrolet for sponsoring this issue’s fashion shoot and thank you to The Brown Duck for lending clothing. Special thank you to Matt Ballard and Donovan McGuire for modeling this issue’s featured styles. And an extra special thanks to some paw-some guests, Mojo and River, who looked dapper as they modeled the latest in doggie outdoor wear.
