    Pistol Lake's Biggest Winners of 2020

    Stretch Terry Hoodie Pistol Lake

    The ball has finally dropped on a challenging 2020 – but before we can change our calendars over to a new year, now is a good time for reflection. The last 12 months have brought Pistol Lake plenty of new experiments, restocks of our classics, and experiences that'll last us a lifetime.

    And while everybody here has their own personal catalog favorites, you do too! Just as they do it in Times Square, we're counting down our top ten best-selling products from 2020.

    1. Minimalist Tee

    Unsurprisingly, this reigns as our unanimous No. 1 champion in 2020.

    Eudae is the future, so, naturally, everybody could benefit from a few colorful, multitalented Minimalist Tees in their overnight bag. 

    We keep these staples restocked year-round and you can snag one today in Black, Heather Gray, Navy, Army, Heather Hunter, Heather Pacific Fog, Heather Brick, Light Heather Gray, and Pacific Fog.

    2. Cotton Henley

    Eudae might be our go-to, but there's nothing wrong with rocking a classic Cotton Henley either.

    Beyond our long-time slate of colors, we just launched three new short-run shades in KelpSapphire, and Agave.

    3. All Things Undies

    Since Thanksgiving, we've stocked up on all of our Minimalist Boxer BriefsMinimalist Boxers, and Minimalist Trunk Briefs in what feels like every possible shade – including Black, Pacific Fog, Navy, and more!

    It might be cheating to put all of our underwear in one spot, but we're making the rules here – so enjoy these pillows for your downstairs while they still last!

    4. One-Bag Henley

    But if you need your Eudae to feel a little heavier and thicker, then the One-Bag Henley is the perfect answer to those prayers. Grab our long-sleeved Eudae masterpiece in Black, Heather Gray, Navy, Charcoal, Burgundy, and Hunter.

    5. One-Bag Tee

    Joining the One-Bag Henley this year in all its midweight Eudae glory is our One-Bag Tee. We launched this flawless new addition during the sweatier days, but it's still rising up the leaderboards every month.

    These wonder threads are here in Black, Heather Gray, Navy, Burgundy, Hunter, Charcoal, and brand new short-run Pacific Fog! 

    6.  Minimalist Tank Top

    Another summertime creation cracks our top-ten and we've been so excited about this one! We experimented with long- and short-sleeved versions of gear for years – but there was one question we kept getting over and over: 

    Well, what if you cut all the sleeves off?

    And, thus, the Minimalist Tank Top was born. If you're preparing for a better year ahead, loading up on these tanks nice and early would be a savvy, forward-thinking idea.

    7. Minimalist Joggers

    the Minimalist Joggers because your life will feel much more comfortable with these bad boys on.

    (But, seriously, sleep in these – we promise that's a stellar idea.)

    8. Stretch Terry Henley

    Of all our 2020 arrivals, the Stretch Terry Henley might be our most comfortable. Made with a thicker weight hybrid TENCEL™️ and French Terry material, these are great for cool winter walks and evening jaunts on the beach.

    9. Minimalist Crew Neck Sweatshirt

    Needless to say, the Minimalist Crew Neck Sweatshirt is rapidly climbing the ladder right into our hearts! This Eclon thriller is a fan-favorite in the outerwear department and it's easy to see why. Stay warm, look classy – can you name a better duo?

    We'll wait.

    10. One-Bag Polo

    Simplified and stylish, the One-Bag Polo is our fashionable answer to bar crawls, bowling, and everything in between. Whether you need something fancier for a late-night first date or want to cruise the slopes in style, we wanted to create a collared shirt that was ready for anything.

    So bring it on, 2021 – we're ready for you! 

    Take Less. Do More. Happy New Year.

    Pistol Lake's Halloween Inspiration Guide

    Pistol Lake Eudae

    Halloween happens to be a very big deal at Pistol Lake.

    And although we're still working on our first-ever all-Eudae costume, we can still help you out this season! Whether you're looking for last-minute costume inspiration or a snazzy fall-ready style, we threw a list together to prove once and for all that we can complete any outfit. 

    1. Minimalist Baseball Tee
    Perfect For: A Baseball Player Costume, duh.

    Let's not overcomplicate this list to kick things off – if you're looking for a barely-passable costume idea, it's hard to beat The Nondescript Athlete. Throw on a cap, pull on some tight pants, add a Minimalist Baseball Tee and then instantly transform into any Hall of Famer you can dream up.

    You won't win any costume awards, but you'll at least avoid a dirty look from Uncle Steve this year.

    2. Minimalist Pullover Hoodie
    Perfect For: Backyard S'mores

    As the weather continues to cool down, you'll be tempted to start a backyard bonfire and chase away the chills with a s'more (or two or three). That's a heart-warming activity itself, but a Minimalist Pullover Hoodie can bring that whole look together.

    Grahams, marshmallows, chocolate, and our beloved Eclon – what's a more iconic quartet? We'll wait...

    3. Cotton Henley
    Perfect For: Pumpkin Patches and Hayrides

    Heading to a socially-distanced farm outside the city? Boom, we got you covered there, too. The Cotton Henley boasts tons of autumnal colors, but perhaps there's none better than our Burgundy.

    Carving pumpkins and cute first-date tractor rides are no match for an all-time Pistol Lake staple.

    4. Minimalist Boxers 
    Perfect For: Post-Thanksgiving Dinner Dips

    Every year, it's tradition to drive to the nearest ocean or lake and jump in some freezing-cold water after Thanksgiving dinner. If you're wearing our Minimalist Boxers, they won't save you from the icy cold, but at least you'll dry fast!

    5. One-Bag Henley
    Perfect For: That Unnamed But Very Famous Horror Movie Villain Costume

    You know the one we're talking about, right? Think of your favorite franchise, one where there's some creepy ghost/killer/mother/stalker that spends the entire film chasing our innocent main characters, probably has four or five sequels (of varying quality), and some absolutely bonkers twists along the way.

    While we're not about to name-drop here, layering any costume with a One-Bag Henley is totally a winning idea. Say what you will about their flimsy motivations, but most of the iconic monsters and villains pull off undead style with ease!

    6. Stretch Terry Henley
    Perfect For: Skiing, Snowboarding, and Extreme Tubing

    Seriously? It's starting to snow already? From coast-to-coast, that means it's time to start thinking ahead about those long days on the slopes.

    Unfortunately, not all of us are blessed with traditional mountain-descending skills – but don't worry, the Stretch Terry Henley is aces for snow tubing too, ignore the haters.

    7. One-Bag Tee
    Perfect For: Rooting On Your Favorite Football Team (From Home)

    Sure, we'd all love to be covered in cheap beer and cheering for touchdowns from the nosebleeds, but that's just not possible right now. However, our Midweight Eudae makes the One-Bag Tee flawless for lazy at-home Sunday afternoon lounging – just don't spill salsa on it!

    8. Minimalist Tank Tops
    Perfect: Ignoring The Seasons; Overusing Heat Lamps

    But maybe you're not ready to accept the weather and impending snow. Maybe you're even one impulsive click from flying far away from the upcoming winter entirely.

    If you're dreaming of spending the next few months on a beach somewhere, all you need is 235 gallons of sand, three space heaters, a kiddie pool, some Minimalist Tanks, and a willingness to make an uncleanable mess in your living room.

    From thrown together Halloween costumes to the frigid ski lift, we've got what you need this fall, winter, and everything beyond. But what do you use your seasonal Pistol Lake gear for?

    Take Less. Do More.
