A Goodwill Cherry: Kiton

Well, I struck gold yesterday at Goodwill.  It was a random Goodwill, that usually yields nothing.  I had a half hour to kill, so I stuck my head in the door.  As expected, I didn’t find anything until I was walking out, and there was a rolling rack that was filled with clothes and about […]

Nice score. Have been meaning to explore Goodwill and I think this is the motivation I needed to get me going

Omg I am a GW devotee. Most of my shopping I’d online at shopgoodwill.com
But it’s a great place. My favourite buy was $1.69 for a brand new with tags pair of pajama pants from vineyard vines that cost $65 new. Congrats on the kiton!

Jason Isbell: Live and In Color

One of our closest friends texted me a few months ago with this message:  “Isbell 9/24 the Fox – In?”  It took about 45 seconds for me to complete my purchase.  He was contacted via Spotify as one of the biggest Jason Isbell listeners in Atlanta, and was offered early access to tickets to the […]

I have to agree with your being a So-So DBT fan and much more so of an Isbell solo work fan. I have a friend whom tried to sell me on DBT and I liked some of it, but not so much of the rest. Then Isbell went solo and I liked all of his stuff. I cam to the realization that the DBT material I like is what Isbell wrote and sang lead on, the rest of the stuff in places borders on the neighbors cats waking you up at 3am…

CWCS - September 27, 2016 - 1:20 PM

Excellent show from Jason. It speaks volumes that he can now completely omit Outfit from the set. I’ve seen him about 10 times over the years solo and while he and the band have never been tighter, I do miss some of the spontaneity and kick-ass covers he used to perform. Completely disagree on the Truckers though – Patterson and company broke the mold on what it means to be Southern and proud and still realistic about the region’s faults. I’d venture to say that the Americana awards et al owe DBT a tremendous debt of gratitude. Some others agree.

Show was awesome. I have to chime in on DBT — I completely agree with CWCS on his comment that “Patterson and company broke the mold on what it means to be Southern and proud and still realistic about the region’s faults.” Isbell brought something special to DBT and looking back in hindsight as much as I wish he was still together with DBT, he has grown so much as a solo artist and became his own thing.

marty - September 28, 2016 - 10:48 AM

Isbell just gets better and better. Cleaning up his act and having an amazing woman in his life no doubt helped. Sure did me.

Sam - September 28, 2016 - 3:25 PM

Nice recap. Weird, though — in Utrecht he said Amanda didn’t like Cover Me Up at first and told him to work on it.

Arnold Palmer

Today we are going to honor the King.  Arnie.  Not only did the world of golf suffer a great loss yesterday, but we all did as human beings.  Arnold Palmer exemplified hard work, a competitive nature, and a shining example of how to be a gentleman. He will be missed.

Lust: Raleigh Denim Canvas Pants

The ‘Just In’ sections of online retailers is on fire right now.  Tons of Fall merchandise is hitting the Internet, and it can’t come soon enough.  I was looking through East Dane’s section, and came across these Raleigh Denim Jones Slim Canvas Pants: Does anyone have any experience with these?  I love the colors, and […]

Mark McCoy - September 23, 2016 - 9:32 PM

I have not tried these, but have 2 different pair of Raleigh and both fit great and are well made. I would pull the trigger. I have a pair of Jones for and Alexander Work fit which are not denim but a cotton fabric.

WGU - September 26, 2016 - 4:33 PM

RCS,

I have had a pair of the darker khaki colored canvas pants for almost a year now, and they’re some of my favorites. They are actually almost a golden color brand new, and are a heavier canvas, much like the Filson tin cloth. I have several pairs of their jeans, and these feel and fit just like their raw denim does. It takes a lot of love and wear for them to break in, but once you do, the fit and feel is hard to beat. The Jones fit is a lot like the fit of the 501’s. They may be a little slimmer at first, but treat them like jeans and they should stretch out some to fit you specifically. I have nothing but good things to say about Raleigh as a company and they’ve definitely earned a lifetime customer in myself. They may be a little pricey, but I’m sure you won’t be disappointed. Keep us all posted if you decide to pull the trigger!

Cheers,

WGU
