Q. Monique : Hey benny!
I know your last name is gold. But I can't help but wonder if your stay gold logo has a little nod to the book, the outsiders? When johnny says to pony "stay gold, ponyboy" I've always wondered! Love your brand!

Q. Dave: Are you happy?
A. Benny: Dave - I am! Thanks for asking. I love having a family and solid career in the arts.
Q. Tim Schönborn: First of thumps up to your great work and design! Bought my first Panel Cap in the HHV Store in Berlin, it was a Benny Gold. The little paperplane was for me like staying fly and do what i want with your style and yourself.
But whats your meaning of your icon?
And also thumps up for the works for jerks hoodie! So comfortable and such a nice style with the backprint! What does works for jerks for you mean?
A. Benny: People ask all the time.. why a paper airplane? Long before everything turned into a brand I was growing bored with working a full time design job for other people. I was loosing sight of the things I loved as a kid like doing art just to do art. The only design projects I worked on was during my 9-5 job. I started a personal project exploring the idea of staying youthful as you grow up and how to hold onto the golden things inside you that you hold dear. It's not that I didn't want to grow up because honestly there is nothing you can do about that.. I just didn't want to forget the things that make me happy. The paper plane symbolizes youth, creativity and growth. In motion a paper airplane can go anywhere, grow to become anything but still be fun!
Q. can wang: What is the story behind Route 16?
A. Benny: Our flagship store was located on 16th Street in the Mission District of San Francisco. We are in the process of relocating to 968 Valencia Street soon! Wish us luck as we finish the store build.
Q. Joe: Benny - What's the most important thing you've learned as a business owner? (Also, I understand you can't do it anymore, but those little thank you notes you used to drop in orders blew my mind. Just one of the many things I love about your brand and how you run it.)
A. Benny: The most important thing that I learned is to get back up after mistakes. Business is not always easy and brands only die when you give up on them.
Q. Benjamin thomas : What advice do you have for a young designer who is finally ready to begin production? I want to use high quality shirts for printing, but am not sure where I can source them frkm.
A. Benny: Find out who your local screen printer is and they will help you source shirts and get your files ready for production - looking forward to seeing what you produce!
Q. Allison: Hi! I recently got one of your hats as a gift from my brother, but unfortunately I lost it. I was looking for it in the online store, but it was sold out. How often are hats restocked? (I am talking about the gray lumberjack snapback).
A. Benny: bummer - sorry, but our clothing is seasonal and we don't restock products. Once it's gone its gone for good. The good news is that we have a ton of great new hats out now!
