ELEMENTS OF A BADASS

The Tryfate family in the broader sense

  • CRYSTAL

  • BOB

  • JOSH

Badass Brands was born of the vision of siblings, Crystal and Joshua Smith and longtime family friend
Bob Boblitt.  The collective belief of these founders is that there are special people and places that make
indelible impressions on our lives.  TEXAS and the people we affectionately call “badasses” are just that.

Having bonded as family over decades of incredibly good and also occasionally trying times, it’s this
threesome’s common purpose to spotlight the people in our lives and around this great State that truly
embody what it is to be a “badass”. Badass Brands, this website and the unique apparel within is all
intended as a tribute to the unshakeable spirit and incredible gift badasses are in the lives of others.

Take a look around the site. Get to know what Badass Brands is all about. Shop a bit if you like and feel
free to drop us a line. Most importantly, show appreciation for the important people in your lives.
There are badass people everywhere who deserve a tip of your hat.

And remember, BE A BADASS, NOT AN ASSHOLE…
