Ball and Buck

With deer heads mounted on the wall and a stack of vintage Playboys for sale, Ball and Buck is a refuge for every red-meat-eating, style-conscious male tired of the same soulless shops along Newbury. Yes, you’ll find wallets and belts, all made in the U.S. and geared toward a rugged gent with a sense of refinement, but it’s the vintage watches, oyster knives, and Ball and Buck special-edition 12-gauge shotguns that set this store apart. If only it had a bar.
