The Southern Proper Trunk Show @ 310 Rosemont

Southern Proper had their annual Tailgates and Ties trunk show stop in Atlanta’s 310 Rosemont last week.  As usual, they put on a great show – displaying new colors of old favorites, as well as some yet-to-hit-the-shelves items.  Be excited about the Spring, folks – there is some good stuff up their sleeves… The Southern Proper ties […]

Wish I could have made it – this looks like a great store! I’ll have to stop by.

Really nice site from the most wonderful place in the world… The South

Tailgate Style: The Florida Gators

Unfortunately, I won’t be attending #OccupySaintSimons this year, but I thought I’d lend some help to the Gators fans making their way over to Jacksonville.  Behold the Red Clay Soul ‘Florida Gators’ version of Tailgate Style: (Clockwise from top left) 1. New Hat: How many gas station Gators hats do you need?  Skip the Shell station […]

As an FSU alum I absolutely love this post.

Bob - October 27, 2011 - 6:36 PM

Oh this is great.

Caroline @ Back Down South - October 27, 2011 - 7:07 PM

You’re awesome.

Billy Jack - October 27, 2011 - 8:11 PM

Nice gear. You forgot the Tevas.

Bobby - October 27, 2011 - 8:19 PM

Go Noles

BCM - October 27, 2011 - 9:35 PM

Trucker hats AND jorts! Well played, sir.

DTT - October 27, 2011 - 9:37 PM

Could not be any more correct, namely the sleeveless shirt and the jorts. Avoided two accidents today from out of town guests getting lost. War Eagle, but Go Dawgs!

cooper - October 27, 2011 - 10:57 PM

brilliant. go dawgs.

Greg K - October 27, 2011 - 11:23 PM

I love the descriptions! Go Noles!

WarEagleDG - October 28, 2011 - 8:26 AM

You also left out hair gel and fake gold necklace/chain!
See you 11/12!

Ben - October 28, 2011 - 9:12 AM

As a Gator Alum, I am surpise Noles know how to you the internet.

JJ - October 28, 2011 - 9:43 AM

“You” the internet? Use the internet. Another reason why Gators are superior.

Glenn - October 28, 2011 - 10:11 AM

Hey where’s the realtree camo hat with fish hook on it:-)

MRS - October 28, 2011 - 10:57 AM

Hilarious. Excellent troll. Good luck to the Dawgs.

Griff - October 28, 2011 - 3:16 PM

Too bad you can’t buy mullets, otherwise this list would be complete

B. L. Davis - October 28, 2011 - 5:56 PM

You screwed it up. All real Gators wear visors, just like Savior Steve Spurrier. Geez… and you think this is a fashion blog. Get outa here!

All aside, Go Gators!

Albert - October 28, 2011 - 6:16 PM

I suppose that when you can’t win very often, that what is left is to throw a little fashion smack out.

emj - October 29, 2011 - 10:53 PM

As a gator fan I would be offended if it were from anyone else. I mean, you like to show off your visor collection… How could I take anything you say serious??? ;)

JamesJ - October 31, 2011 - 10:11 AM

go dawgs

Clay - November 2, 2011 - 10:28 AM

Congrats to the Dawgs. I went to an SEC Championship game a while back featuring Florida and Alabama. The difference in dress between the fans was not only noticeable, it was as wide a chasm as the final score. It was a cold day, so jorts were not displayed in excess. Jeans and sweatshirts were the norm for the Florida fans. I guess it’s really hard to look good in orange and blue…..

Buffalo & Co – Mocs & Elbow Patches

I’ve posted about Buffalo & Company before, and will probably post about them again.  They do a great job of constantly adding to their impressive catalog – the best bet is to follow them Facebook to stay up to date.  Here are a couple recent releases that are top notch:  First, the Havana Harbor Mocs […]

Jay, thanks for the kind words on the company and those items. Thanks for honoring us! You are kind. Hopefully we can meet up one day in either Georgia or in Colorado.

Caroline @ Back Down South - October 24, 2011 - 3:41 PM

Love that oxford with the patch – a unique way to make the oxford stand apart. Might need to grab one of those for the husband.

Jay Turner - October 25, 2011 - 10:22 PM

Great finds! Impressive product line and a great story. Proud to see a fellow brother giving back.

Young Man/Old Man x The Cordial Churchman Cordies

Conor over at Young Man/Old Man recently teamed up with the great folks at The Cordial Churchman to offer ‘Cordies’ – sunglasses straps made from 550 paracord.  Quite an interesting combination, but it works.  Hand made in the Palmetto State, these are ready to go: They are substantial, in a good way. Offered in Camo, […]

Dig them as bracelets, watchbands, or even keychains. As straps on yr sunglasses they seem overly bulbous. Also, the loops that the glasses slip into, seem ok for day to day wear–but I don’t know if I’d trust them on a roller coaster in the summer.

Cool concept, though.

Ben - January 31, 2012 - 9:13 PM

Cool but mine slipped off of my 180$ oakleys and almost lost them on my speed boat why DONT BUY!!!!!!!!M!!!!!!.!!!!!!!!!.,:(

The Fall Classic

It’s been tough to get into the MLB post season after the collapse of my beloved Braves.  There’s always next year – a lot of pieces are in place for the Braves to make a serious run. That said – the Fall Classic starts tonight.  I’m an NL guy, but I like the Rangers in […]

chris - October 19, 2011 - 10:20 AM

I also couldn’t get into this postseason with the collapse of the Braves but I think the Rangers will win in 5

Andy - October 19, 2011 - 1:32 PM

Cards in 6.

I don’t want to rub it in, but an epic collapse by the Braves.

(Could have gotten tix for the game tonight, but $300 a pop for mediocre seats wasn’t in the budget)

B. L. Davis - October 20, 2011 - 10:28 PM

I’m an AL East guy lamenting the loss of the Rays. Unfortunately, I’m taking the Cards in 5. We’ll see! Last night was a darn good game, regardless of team persuasion.

Blog of Note: Back Down South

Our friend Caroline is an extremely talented photographer.  Seriously – really good.  Recently, she has come up with a gem – Back Down South.  I was a huge proponent when she told me about the concept a few months ago.  So far, she has knocked it out of the park.  It ties together all things […]

Thanks for the info. It is an extremely good site.

My favorite part of the site: The most attractive girls are from Texas!
