Hogleg Locked And Loaded
Collin McMinn, started designing around the age of 14 for Call of Duty players. Once he started getting more comfortable with the program he wanted to make a brand for himself. Selling designs he had made and put them on t-shirts. He created Hogleg when he was 16 with his dad still branding the name, working out the kinks.
Q: What does your brand mean to you?
A: Hogleg is basically everything to me honestly. I’ve gone through the worst shit in my life recently with
losing people in my life and the only thing that sort of kept me on track with it was being able to create,
host and promote my own designs on shirts that people actually loved.
Q: Did you ever see yourself creating a brand worn by people around the world?
A: Ever since I was a kid I always knew I wanted to be more known than just by the people I know around
my town and school. I never imagined it but seeing people in other states, other countries listening to
my music and wearing my designs is sometimes mind-boggling to me.
Q: What is your thought process when creating something new?
A: Anytime I want to create something new, I’ll go and listen to new music or wear new clothes. New, new,
new. My mind works in a weird way, I need to obtain or see something visually new to give myself a
spark of creation and innovation.
Q: Is your style of clothing a way you express yourself?
A: Of course. I wear what I want, I don’t follow trends. That shit is for sheep.
Q: How would you describe yourself in five words?
A: Charismatic. Smart. Charming. Crazy. Mysterious.
Q: What are somethings you do or say to yourself to achieve and keep your confidence?
A: If it won’t matter in 5 years, don’t spend more than 5 minutes on it.
Q: Do you think fashion needs rules?
A: Rules? Maybe not. Guidelines? Possibly. I’m just tired of seeing trampy girls wearing that same white
tube top. But in the same breath, I don’t want to see some weird crazy shit that makes no sense.
Q: What are some interesting facts that people don’t know about you?
A: I feel like everyone knows me, I am who I am everywhere. If anything I love Taki’s and have a soft spot
for Winnie the Pooh.
Q: What is something that you personally think signifies that you have officially achieved all your dreams?
A: Once I work with Travis Scott, Oliver Francis or Playboi Carti.
