Introducing the Reds from Jack Donnelly

Great news, folks – the good folks at Jack Donnelly have released the next iteration of their outstanding Carter pants – the Reds.  We’ve talked about the Carters before…they quite possibly might be the greatest 3-season khakis ever made.  The addition of the Reds is an excellent move, and helps round out the color pallet.

How does the color compare to Nantucket Red? I picked up my first pair of NRs from the recent Onward Reserve sale and love the color. Wouldn’t mind getting a second pair of Reds.

Hi Steven – Thanks for your question and interest in Jack Donnelly. I would say it’s similar, with the biggest difference being the NR seems to be a little more faded – ours it’s a little richer in color. I hope that makes sense. We’re happy to send you a pair for you to check out. If you have any further questions shoot me an email at gregg@jackdonnelly.com

Best,

Gregg Donnelly

Unless you bought your Nantucket Reds at Murray’s you’re just wearing knockoffs. Their the original and I’ve yet to see a pair that wears or fades as well as Murray’s.

Gregg, thanks for the offer. That is very kind. I have purchased a few pairs of JDs and they are by far my favorite chinos. Keep up the great work.

Bull & Moose

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again…one of the best parts about doing Red Clay Soul is finding, meeting, and talking about new brands.  I had heard about Bull & Moose from Caroline, and was intrigued.  Coincidently, Diego, one of the founders, reached out shortly thereafter. Bull & Moose is a Veteran-owned start […]

Reverb: The Sid Mashburn Warehouse Sale – The Goods

In a follow-up to the first Sid Mashburn Warehouse Sale post, I wanted to show you the goods.  After it was all said and done, I didn’t realize the value of early entry into the sale.  When the doors opened at 10, the line was roughly around the building.  So here we go…please pardon the […]

Glad you made out like a bandit. Came through ATL bout 12 hours too early or I’d have been in there snatching and grabbing myself.

Honeymoon Packing – His Edition

I am beyond excited.  For those of you that follow Red Clay Soul on Instagram, you know that my future bride-to-be and I are heading south in a couple weeks to a remote island in the Caribbean to get married and enjoy our honeymoon.  Being the ultra-organized people we are, we have started to talk […]

No watch? Otherwise that is a solid wardrobe for a tropical island. I would swap out the ball cap for some type of straw fedora or similar. What about something like this: http://www.jpressonline.com/coconut-hat-navy-and-burgundy-stripe/

Keeping track of time will be the last thing on his mind during the honeymoon. Hope y’all have a blast, Jay!

Where you heading?

Jason - July 9, 2014 - 11:21 AM

Love those Southern Proper shorts. Congratulations and have a great time!

JRS - July 9, 2014 - 11:27 AM

@Steven – I’m not really a fedora kind of guy.

@Grayson – BINGO

@BMO’C – We are heading to Harbour Island in the Bahamas. Can’t wait…

How are you liking the Bongo speakers? Just ordered one last minute for a beach trip this weekend.

RCN - July 9, 2014 - 4:18 PM

As always a great eye RCS… wouldn’t change a thing. Y’all have a blast and congratulations to you both. P.S. Totally not a fedora guy.

Kevin - July 10, 2014 - 8:50 AM

Hi, was wondering if you can supply a review of the Res Ipsa loafers. I’m contemplating grabbing a pair and am curious about comfort, fit/sizing, and any other info you can give as there isn’t much out on the web in terms of reviews. Love the site, thanks for any and all help.

In Pictures: The Sid Mashburn Warehouse Sale

A couple of weeks ago, Sid and Ann Mashburn held their now famous Warehouse Sale.  They were nice enough to invite me to come in a little early to take some shots of the merchandise before the mayhem began.  It truly was an awesome experience.  I have so much respect for Sid, not only for […]

This sale was so huge I had to send my buddy Ryan to score me some deals now that I live in Chicago.

How sweet is that coral colored jacket in the second photo?!

Sid is by far one of the coolest people I have ever met.
