Edward Green Trunk Show at Sid Mashburn

As if there already wasn’t enough great stuff happening in Atlanta’s Westside this weekend, here’s another one you can’t miss:  Sid Mashburn is hosting Edward Green for a trunk show at his Atlanta store.  Seriously…some of the nicest shoes you’ve ever seen, and some of the nicest folks you’ve ever met. Drop by if you […]

Recent Finds: Winter Jackets

I’ve recently added two new (vintage) jackets to my winter lineup.  Luckily, I’ve remained in pretty good shape, so a few of the tweets that I used to wear are now too big.  I like to think it’s my eating habits and pseudo-dedication to staying healthy, but more than likely they have just stretched out. […]

I recently got a cashmere tweed jacket by Southwick very similar to your Pendelton one, even with the subtle blue check. I’ve only worn it once but I think it will be a favorite this Fall/Winter. Looking forward to seeing how you wear yours.

New Art

I’m working on a post about ‘Dude Decorating’, which is turning out well.  As guys, not only do we need some help and accountability with our clothing style, but we also need some help with our livability style.  Stay tuned… For now, some new art.  I got it in a 9×12 which I’m planning on […]

Always be on the lookout for old Widespread concert prints. Yonder Mountain String Band has a nice one too. Other good options are old liquor ads from magazines.

That’s cool. I spent about an hour looking around that website!

A Little Bit from Oak Street Bootmakers

The fine folks at Oak Street Bootmakers are adding some more heavy duty ammo to the arsenal.  With a nod to tradition, the Oak Street Bootmakers Bit Loafer is a shoe that is instantly familiar, yet boldly unique.  The upper is hand-sewn in Maine with Horween calfskin leathers, calfskin lining, leather sole, stacked leather heel […]

How would you rate these as compared to Alden cape cods? The prices are basically the same, and they look pretty similar at first glance.

The only issue I have with my Aldens is the rubber portion of the heel has seemed to wear down awfully fast.

Love my Alden Cape Cods…

2014 World Series: Baby, It’s a Wild World

It all starts tonight, folks.  Two Wild Card teams…Neither of which are the Yankees, Cardinals, or any other huge market team.  Who do you pick?  In how many games? RCS Pick:  Royals in 5, and ESPN hates every minute of it.

I hate to say it but SF in 6. I expect this to be one of the least viewed World Series in modern history.

FRBIII - October 21, 2014 - 2:49 PM

Perhaps they can work the SEC into the Series!

William Smith - October 21, 2014 - 8:38 PM

I really have to pull for the Royals, the Twins were dumb enough to trade Willingham so it would be nice for a W.

NOT the Braves. Giants sweep. I’m still trying to figure out how the Braves farm team made it to the World Series and we can’t make the playoffs.

Roger C. Russell II - October 23, 2014 - 8:31 AM

I can not believe the lack of interest conveyed here. I have been a Giants fan for years. They are the greatest team in the MLB.

Wait….are yall saying people are still playing baseball?

Picking a Winner: Jack Donnelly

When Gregg first told me that he was launching a Kickstarter campaign for Jack Donnelly, I knew immediately that he would KILL it.  As a long time customer, I can attest to the quality and fit of the khakis.  They have one of the best value propositions in the #menswear terrordome.  I talked to Gregg yesterday […]

Vested

Sleeves are so overrated right now.  On outerwear only…seriously.  With the temperatures still hitting the 70s at peak of the day, Barbour season remains a little prohibitive, but the 40s and 50s in the AM make vest weather just right.  In terms of style and function, vests are all over the map.  You have the […]

Smashburn of course. I like the navy one tho: http://www.sidmashburn.com/shop/what-s-new/navy-flannel-down-vest.html

Like the Dubarry a lot. A Barbour waxed vest is on my list too. Another good option is Stafford’s makes a nice quilted shooting vest.
