Of course, there’s Father’s Day on June 16, but there are so many more reasons why it’s great to be a guy this month. With the summer season underway, the long, sunny days can be filled with backyard cookouts, baseball games, camping trips, fishing excursions and so much more. To gather information for this issue, we looked to the experts: the men of Billings! You might even recognize a few faces. We’ve included a famous Montanan that can be found on the History Channel series Mountain Men, a gorgeous 1934 Ford Roadster and some amazing  Dude Food—all of which could make Tim “The Tool Man” Taylor grunt.

CORPORATE TEAM CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER Steven Schowengerdt

DRIVER’S NOTEBOOK

(CON TI N U ED)

JIM MCCALL FIRST LAID EYES ON THE '34 ROADSTER IN 1988. It sat unfinished in the corner of a garage he had visited to purchase another classic car, with parts strewn around it and piled inside. He purchased it at the end of 2003, then spent the next four years assembling and restoring  until it became the head-turning vintage auto seen today.  Born with the "car bug," Jim McCall always exuded an affinity for automobiles. As a young child, he looked forward to each September when the car manufacturers unveiled their newest models, riding  his bike throughout Billings from dealership to dealership to see them. He

“I usually dropped a finger in my bull rope, which meant that your hand was locked into the rope,” Tom explains. “The moment the chute opened, there was some big eruption.” Skulls of man and beast collided, knocking Tom into unconsciousness. Bound tightly by the rope across the middle of the bull’s back, Tom’s hand pinned him to the thrashing animal. “So now my legs and stuff are underneath his hind legs … he’s bucking and stepping on me quite hard.” He admits it is the closest he ever came to death inside a rodeo arena.

thrills, the rise and a fall of a mountain feeds the soul of a man yearning for peace. “Nancy and I would come up to Montana in the summertime and go rodeoing out here,” he says. The appeal of the Wild West beckoned, and they loaded all of their possessions into an old pickup truck. Interestingly, the truck they used to begin their life in Montana was bought with money earned from muskrat pelts, a small hint at the future that lay in store for the Oars. “We had no idea what we were getting into or how I was gonna make a living out here. But I just had a feeling that, by God, I can do it. I can get it done.”

It would just take a little bit more luck to turn his tanning into a lucrative business. “Black Powder Rendezvous, they called them,” Tom says. “They were recreations of the old fur-trade days in the Rocky Mountains when all the trappers would meet in one spot.”

Feeling well at home amongst this like-minded crowd of mountain men, he finally discovered a niche for his handmade wares. And when Tom does something, he is certain to do it well. “The most prestigious clothing that you could wear at one of these rendezvous is brain-tanned buckskin clothing,” he says. Patrons immediately sensed the incomparable quality of the brain-tanned hides Tom provided, and the hides began to sell at a remarkable rate. Tom found his peace. Together, Tom and Nancy defied the odds. Danger lurked, isolation taunted, and the bitter chill of Montana winter bore down upon them;

When asked how he copes with the steady current of visitors making the trek to his property each summer, he just shrugs and confesses he would rather people like him than hate him. At the age of 76, he continues to toil endlessly on his craft and their survival in the mountains. “Amazing life,” he surmises. “I’ve enjoyed every bit of it. And as long as I can still do it, hell, I’m gonna do it.”

B e n H a r m a n O w n er /C h ef, T he Fiel d h ou s e a n d T h e A n n e x When gifted with a talent for creating and inventing, one needs to find an outlet through which they can express themselves. For Ben Harman, his restaurant is that outlet. “I love producing results, tangible results, that you can hold, or touch or even eat,” Ben says. “But I can’t imagine anything more unfulfilling than never sharing these creations.” He credits his ambition to the public he serves. “It has continued to amaze me how much of this is about other people and how necessary their role is in my passion for what I do … I guess I was always destined to share myself with others one way or another. This restaurant has been that path.” Along with his wife, Krystal, Ben has founded a business that is impacting the community in many diverse ways. “This little business reaches farther than I could have ever known,” he says. “The connections we’ve made with customers and producers, to staff members and other like-minded chefs …The way in which we lessen our impact and waste by recycling and sourcing locally, to cooking honest food from simple ingredients. We really try to create a culture of positivity, respect, growth and accountability.” Ben hopes the future will bring a chance for self-improvement, as well as  more opportunities to help shape the local scene. “My goals for the future are plenty,” he begins. “Learning how to be a better boss, continuing to grow in my communication with others and how to achieve those things by living a more balanced personal life are some of the more immediate goals. Long-term, I would like to continue to be a part of Billings’ growing culture and community. And I have some ideas…” LIFE LESSON “It’s pretty cliche, but if I can do it, you can do it.

what it is There are many different types of fades, but ultimately a fade haircut is one that tapers in length the further down you go on the back and sides, meaning it isn’t trimmed to just one standard length all around. The level of fade (low, mid or high) depends on what point the shortest part of the hair begins to fade into a longer length. ASK FOR Taper fade, low fade, mid fade, high fade or skin fade


The man bun + what it is This popular style is good for many types of hair as long as you have a lot of it. You’ll need length in the front, back and sides generally long enough to at least brush your shoulders. KEEP IT CLEAN Be sure to keep your sideburns and neckline trimmed even as your hair grows out.

thick + curly long

The quiff

+ what it is Closely related to the pompadour, the quiff haircut requires longer hair in the front and shorter hair in the back. The longer hair in the front is brushed upward and back from the forehead and away from the face. This look can be sleek and shiny for a classic look or texturized and matte for a modern take. ASK FOR Short sides and a long textured top. Be sure enough hair is left on top to brush back instead of standing straight up.
