Meet Kyle Muller – the savvy mind behind the men’s vintage clothing store, Sam Hill? He is a HELM man through & through, not to mention one of the coolest guys we know, so get to know him more in the Q & A below.
Why do you do vintage?
At an early age I loved antiques, old junk and any relic I could get my hands on. All I wanted to be when I grew up was a treasure hunter. As I got older, my interest in fashion grew, and it was a natural progression…now I consider myself a treasure hunter of clothing.
Where do you find your inspiration?
My inspiration comes from the past, when there was a quality and functionality that often dictated style.
Why the name Sam Hill?
Sam Hill is an old American euphemism that dates back to the early 1800s.
There are several origins of the name. One possible origin was a man named Sam Hill who owned a mercantile store with a vast inventory of goods… people began using the term “what in the Sam Hill is that?” to describe something they found odd or unusual, just like the inventory found in Sam Hill’s store.
What era is your favorite?
But if I had to time travel I would go back to Liberation Day in Paris, August 25, 1944. I heard it was a good party.
Who, living or dead, would you love to style?
Easy… Michael J. Fox
