Quick Hitter: Dallas from my iPhone

Mrs. RCS and I had a chance to spend a little time in Dallas.  What a great town…there is so much to love, as my iPhone camera will prove: Beretta Store: Filson Store: Sid Mashburn: Cavender’s: Randoms:

Dallas is truly a great city. Lived there for four years as an undergrad at SMU. Hope you made it to Pecan Lodge for lunch.

Glad to see you enjoyed the city! Would love to meet up and discuss menswear next time you come through.

You need to get those Lucchese caiman shit kickers, don’t let Mrs. RCS tell you no!

Shopping Fall with Ball and Buck

With Fall arriving, and the temperatures (finally) starting to drop, it’s time to transition closets to more weather-friendly options.  For me, Fall is my favorite time of year.  Not only is it college football season, but the humidity disappears, and ‘outdoor life’ becomes much more conducive. Fall is the sweet spot for Ball and Buck. […]

Good call on the gloves. I was also looking at the elkskins as an option. Thoughts?

Lust: Vintage Ford Broncos

The rumor mill started spinning last week with the possibility of Ford releasing a redesigned Bronco in 2018.  I have always been a Bronco fan – one of my fraternity brothers drove a 1995 Eddie Bauer green model that was awesome.  He was not cool enough to drive that truck.  Anyway, the new concept looks […]

If you’re lusting for vintage 911s and Broncos, look into Singer and Icon as they’ve taken those obsessions to the point of brilliant insanity.

Report back with a post on your favorite Singer 911 interior.

Thankfully, I believe the concepts that have been swirling around are not from Dearborn. Much like Chrysler’s 2019 release of the Grand Wagoneer, we won’t see true factory concepts for quite some time from Ford.

I really like the dark green with the white top. Has sort of International Scout feel to it. The whitewalls get me every time. They are a little bit of gentleman in an off road vehicle.

I love the old Broncos, especially after the rear wheel wells have been cut (as is the case on most of the restores you see) and they are given a slight lift.
My personal favorite, and still somewhat affordable if you can find one, are the late 60s – early 70s Nissan Patrols. They look like an FJ40 at about half the cost.

High Five

It’s been a busy couple of weeks…lots of good stuff out there.  Here are five that I want to bring to your attention: 1 Ball and Buck does such a great job with collaborations.  They have done work with New Balance, Abel Reels, Randolph, etc.  They just released their version of a Moto jacket with […]

Any word on those Hermes straps? One of the owners of HQ Milton posted them on Instagram, I inquired as well but never heard anything.

A Kicker: Gallet Watch

Last Sunday I was bumming around Scott’s Antique Market passing some time before the UGA game.  While Mrs. RCS and I have spent a ton of weekends there searching for furniture for our house, we haven’t spent much time looking for the smaller stuff. I did. And I came across this: I have admired Gallet […]

How much did they want? Those go for north of two grand most of the time.

Nem - October 12, 2016 - 10:03 AM

I’d steer clear of a $2k+ vintage watch from anyone but a trusted and recommended watch dealer/specialist. That Gallet looks great (don’t for the love of God polish a vintage case) and on the right tapered lizard strap could be a nice piece. Just remember, if the movement needs cleaning or repair, $$$.

Criquet X The Old Try: Half Sweet Tea, Half Lemonade

Criquet Shirts is paying tribute to Arnold Palmer, the inspiration behind their Players Shirt: The company says “Thank you Arnold Palmer for being so kind, so graceful, so funny, so good at golf and so damn cool. You were an inspiration on and off the course: a loving husband, a man of the people, a […]
