“It ain’t what they call you, it’s what you answer to.” – W. C. Fields
A Few Wood Men is a wooden watch collection designed and created for Men of Distinction. It was created as a sounding board for black men who are striving to break down barriers, break curses, push boundaries, overcome strongholds, discover strength, come into self-love, and maintain peace while becoming fathers, husbands, leaders, commanders, and pillars within their community.
A Few Wood Men was started in 2017, by Shanayla Sweat, a young woman on a mission of finding the perfect gift that represented her grandfather’s character. He was the neighborhood dad that did not mind taking in or caring for the neighborhood strays, the runaways, or fatherless children that walked amongst the community. He was the man that listened intently and showed up consistently. He was the man that worked hard and made a way when you ran out of options. He was the source…but he was also the man. Tall, dark, and handsome with style, George Lester, was the epitome of an A Few Wood Men. It was because of him that A Few Wood Men was created.
A Few Wood Men’s desire is that your wooden watch brings to remembrance the character, resilience, kingship, and honor of that special man of distinction.
We call him Dad…
We call him King…
We call him an A Few Wood Men.
