I'm liking that they're bringing back the Norwegian Fisherman sweaters back a really classic!

Dude, that duck sweater is lame – it tries too hard. Do yourself a favor and pass. No one needs a Chinese sweater with ersatz old money style by having pseudo-mallards on it.

RCS Likes: Fox Brothers BBQ

Tomorrow is Thursday, and why that is important will be detailed shortly. Any reader of this blog is well aware of my love for BBQ. That said, I haven’t ever talked about my ‘favorite’ place: Fox Brothers BBQ. It is amazing. It’s tough to find, but worth the drive. Fox Bros. is a dry rub […]

The Fox brothers are originally from my town, Austin, and I will attest to the fact that they do Texas BBQ right.
The best sandwich I ever had was their brisket with pimento cheese; it may have even had bacon on it. HEAVEN!

Lookin' sharp, I was supposed to play today, but it's raining and humid.

Great looking refurbishment. Good luck out there, and play like a champ.

Well done. They did a fantastic job. Footjoy, I understand, used to offer a line of tassel loafers similar to Alden, that, in recent years, they appear to have discontinued.

This is great to know. These look great. I’ve got a couple pairs of classics that my father gave to me and have been looking to resole them. thanks for this!
