ABOUT


ABOUT


 

Publisher/Editor Chris Brown

Chris Brown came of age in the "cultural decade" of the 1960's. His influences from that period - the music, the style, the art and media, all play a large role in his publication Refueled, whether obvious to the reader or not.

Brown created his first magazine when he was eight years old. From those sheets of typing paper sprang a vision inspired by the large format photos of LIFE, the satirical vibe of MAD, and the people and times that surrounded him. From the beginning, Brown saw issues of Refueled more as personal journals rather than a magazine. Contained in its pages today are the people and subjects that inspire Brown - meaningful enough that he feels almost a obligation to share them with the world.

With Refueled, Brown is providing us not only a window into great culture, but a peek into one man's personal quest to make media itself an art form.


Brown has spoken about indie publishing through prestigious events such as TEDx and HOW Design Live. He appears in the Netflix exclusive documentary "Making of the American Man", and contributed to the book "Men and Style; Essays, Interviews and Considerations" by David Coggins.

Refueled magazine is an independent publication founded by designer Chris Brown. We sat down with him at an old hardware store in Denton to talk shop on philosophies of fashion, the pursuit of creativity, and the excitement of starting something that is all your own.

Beard Supply / 8 Random Questions

Chris Brown, the man behind Refueled magazine, is every bit as interesting as his publication suggests. He’s a man who values tradition, adventure, rye whisky, beatnik literature, good music, and, of course, great beards. In other words: a man after our own hearts. We recently asked him a series of random questions after spending a few hours with him roaming the property of his good friend Jason Lee.

Refueled's Chris Brown Contributes to Book

How Did Your Farther Dress? "I remember his raw selvage Levi's jeans. He always wore really great chambray shirts and bandanas, and white t-shirts. Very Classic. Red Wing boots and cowboy hats, I mean - I dress like that today, so I know where it comes from. My father always wore a Stetson. As a child in the early sixties, I have great memories of trying on his beige Royal Stetson while he was at work in the oil refineries. It was sweat and smoke stained from days in the garden, and nights around an open fire during frequent weekend camping trips in the piney woods of southeast Texas. It smelled like him and gave me comfort in wearing it. I own that hat today." - Chris Brown, Refueled magazine publisher.

"Men and Style; Essays, Interviews and Considerations" by David Coggins. 


Creating Your Own Path Podcast

Chris Brown of Refueled magazine talks about his beautiful quarterly publication, which is all about community, heritage, and discovery. In the interview, Brown chats about the importance of print publications as they fit into the context of truly experiencing the stories and art we consume.

Brown also shares about the balance between doing what fulfills us creatively and focusing solely on what the audience wants or needs, how successfully selling a neighborhood newspaper at a very young age cemented his love for storytelling, and why he has taken Refueled in a slightly different direction this year. 


"Making the American Man" Documentary

This highly anticipated film, from director Gregory Caruso, draws its power from intimate conversations with over 35 tastemakers and designers who have defined what classic masculinity looks like today, and how they feel it must be produced. From Los Angeles to New York and everywhere in between, these cultural trendsetters shed light on the modern age of American men’s style, the value of American-made goods—and how one cannot exist without the other.
