Meet the WS Team: COLE FAIR

How did you discover Winter Session?

Right after graduating from college, through my dad who works in product design.

What’s your favorite thing about working here?

My co-workers and the environment

Favorite WS colorway:

Navy/Natural, I think the contrast of the light leather with the dark canvas is a great look.

What’s your favorite WS product to make?

The Day Bag

Favorite tool:

The hydraulic press

What’s an especially satisfying moment for you while working at WS?

Grabbing the perfect number of rivets or clearing off the ‘finished goods’ table

What’s your most memorable D.I.Y. project at WS? Or a future one?

My wallet. It was based on an old wallet I had been using since high school that was pretty beat up. I really liked the vertical cards and having two slots for cash. Being born and raised in Colorado, I love the mountains, so I thought it would be a nice touch.

What podcast is streaming in your headphones?

My Brother, My Brother and Me

During recess, you can usually find me…

Eating everything I can


Favorite coffee mug:

My big black one, though it’s rarely used. I hate refilling whatever I'm drinking so I tried to find the biggest mug I could.

How do you take your coffee?

Black, if at all

What do you always carry in your bag, no matter what?

Extra headphones, the one pencil I used throughout college, and my watch

Dream vacation:

Monaco, for the Grand Prix

Secret talent outside of Winter Session:

Lifting heavy things, I have gotten fairly into powerlifting and train five days a week.

Spirit animal:


What’s your anthem/theme song?

Hotline Bling

Harry Potter house affiliation:
