Are You Letting It Ride?
What does that mean anyway?
In the beginning it just meant letting your hair grow unfettered. It still means that, but has since taken on a broader definition.
Let It Ride...is how we put words to the lifestyle.

- Doing something you’ve always wanted to do.
- Taking a chance to chase your dream.
- Throwing down a massive set of hair whips.
- Sharing a joint with a stranger.
- Hooking up a bro with a hair tie.
- Doing the secret handshake.
- Appearing on the jumbotron.
- Slamming a beer before jumping into your Uber.
- Driving with the windows down.
- Getting stopped by federal agents who raid your car looking for the weed with dogs and you had it in your pocket the whole time.
- Buying and secretly passing a beer to a father of four, because he deserves it.

Ok So What is “Not Letting it Ride?”
What if I think I’m letting it ride but I’m not really?
Examples of definitely NOT letting it ride:
The Official “Let It Rides”
(sorry, these shades are all gone)
The story of these shades has followed a similar path to the evolution of Let It Ride. Initially designed with the intent to celebrate and commemorate The Great Cut—and certainly we achieved that—they’ve come to represent something more.
From the subtle wave pattern, to the reflective gold polarized lenses emblazoned with the bound shears, to LET IT RIDE boldly etched into the inner arm...these sunglasses are the physical manifestation of what it means to Let It Ride.
From our achievements at The Great Cut, to our wealth of relationships and enormous gratitude, wearing these shades each day we’re filled with pride, satisfaction and the endless desire to live the lifestyle we choose for ourselves and our families.
Are We Living the Lifestyle We Want?
As the leaves begin to turn and we approach the fourth quarter of this year of our Lord 2019, the window of opportunity to Let It Ride is closing.
Let’s make it worth it.
It feels good when I see some guy from our community, I shout to him the slogan, and he acknowledges it and knows what I mean.
Hell yea! “Sick hair bro”
I meant “Let it ride.”
It’s not just a song from Bachman-Turner Overdrive. It’s a way of life!
I’ve been letting it ride since 1992.
Was 11 with a flat top. You’re the man!
Does “being physically feeble” count for elderly longhairs, and sick, or disabled ones? Is there a bench press criteria we have to meet? I really like your company but that wording really bothers me.
EB good points there. Was meant as a joke. No bench press criteria and no it doesn’t count.
