Recent Acquisitions

We’ve done quite a few gift guides and round ups recently, but as any reader of this blog knows, I love the hunt.  I frequent Goodwills and secondhand stores, and enjoy searching Ebay for treasures.  Rather than focus on all the new stuff, here are some recent acquisitions I’ve scored and (mostly) discounted prices: I…

Flannel Roundup

The recent cold front did an excellent job pushing that warm air out of the Southeast, FINALLY allowing us to break out the sweaters, the waxed coats, and the flannels.  While I don’t keep as many flannels as I do OCBDs, I have a few, and really like the look.  I do mine with jeans/5-pockets/khakis…
