Randolph Sportsman Aviator Sunglasses

In mens style, some things change, and some things remain the same.  Aviator sunglasses have been popular since way before Tom Cruise played Maverick.  Aviators have been a consistent ‘must have’ for any guy (and girl for that matter).  They go with everything, and there are enough variations to fit any style of face. I’ve […]

Braves Baseball. Let’s hear your predictions. No more flower shirts, dude.

Ivygrad71 - March 30, 2014 - 11:56 AM

Just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy your blog. It is well written, useful and informative. I always look forward to new musings. As a dyed in the wool trad, I can certainly appreciate what you are doing! Good on ya Sport!!

Alex - April 2, 2014 - 11:18 AM

Just bought the Randolph polarized aviators in gold at Ball & Buck on Newbury Street in Boston. I was going to buy the Ray-Ban equivalent but love the fact that these are made just south of the city by a family business. Great sunglasses!

Getting Floral, Guys

Looking to expand your Spring and Summer wardrobe verticals?  Get on board with some florals, guys. The general perception in the US is that floral designs lean towards a feminine palate, but in fact it’s just the opposite – as long as it’s the right floral designs.  I’ll argue that 95% of Lilly designs worn […]

10 for 10 – The 2014 Preseason College Football Rankings (and 10 hat giveaways)

How refreshing is it to see college football news and reports starting to frequent the Interwebs and the local sports reports?  With Spring practice in full swing, it’s a great sign that we are only a few short months away until kickoff.  With that, I’ve put together the Red Clay Soul pre-season College Football Rankings, […]

Sad to see Cincinnati’s not in it. The American Athletic conference is not helping them out any.

Aaron Smith - March 24, 2014 - 9:06 AM

Auburn is going to run the table next year with a light speed offense! WDE!

Ryan Perdue - March 24, 2014 - 9:11 AM

Auburn will be back in the National Championship game with a faster offense. WDE!!

Colby Register - March 24, 2014 - 9:26 AM

People will know what to expect with Winston in year two (See Tim Tebow) … And for all you Barners, I just want to say (8-5) and (3-9). RTR

Zachary Hays - March 24, 2014 - 9:26 AM

Can’t wait to see my Noles repeat. Starting the season in Dallas for the Cowboy Classic, and it ends there with a second consecutive national title. Scalp ’em!

Ben - March 24, 2014 - 9:29 AM

I’m always ready for football season!

Chris - March 24, 2014 - 9:32 AM

Bama is going to come out ready to prove that the last two games of last season aren’t part of the norm. They’ll have their eyes set on championship this year.

Drew - March 24, 2014 - 9:53 AM

Sad to say it, but FSU will probably repeat

CJH - March 24, 2014 - 10:03 AM

That Florida hat looks WAY better in orange and blue 😉

Tad Derrick - March 24, 2014 - 10:48 AM

I think Texas under Charile Strong is going to suprise people in a hurry! Also a healthy UGA will be much higher then 10th

Camille Logan - March 24, 2014 - 10:50 AM

Weston Awtry - March 24, 2014 - 12:31 PM

Auburn is one of only a couple teams in the SEC returning its quarterback. They should be ranked above bammer.

Fritz - March 24, 2014 - 12:33 PM

Trevor Knight may fall back to reality

Stephanie S - March 24, 2014 - 12:38 PM

Sic ’em bears! Going to go even farther this year!

Scott - March 24, 2014 - 12:44 PM

If a team didn’t make the too ten rankings are we still able to get a hat from that state? I would love a state traditions hat for Minnesota!

Jeff M - March 24, 2014 - 12:54 PM

I can always use a hat and a koozie!

Jacob S - March 24, 2014 - 1:30 PM

Auburn will be back in the championship against FSU but they will prevail this time around.

Jacob S - March 24, 2014 - 1:31 PM

Auburn will be in the national championship again but will win this time around.

Excited to see AU at 3

Riley Chandler - March 24, 2014 - 10:58 PM

Alabama’s defense will be stronger than ever this year. And although we lost McCarron, Coker will be a boost in out offense and having Kiffen as our offensive coordinator we will utilize our weapons at Wide Reciever. It should all around be a good season. We just have to make kicks.

Lance - March 25, 2014 - 3:06 AM

We love our baylor bears! Sic em!

Conor - March 25, 2014 - 7:20 AM

What no LSU is the mix?

As a New Englander I feel like I should at least point out that BC at least had the hail mary thanks to Flutie….I’ll now return to College football irrelevance.

Mikey - March 25, 2014 - 9:36 AM

UGA was plagued by injuries last season with a very disappointing loss to Nebraska in the Gator Bowl.Despite Murray moving on,we have enough talent/depth at the skill positions (Gurshall) to help Mason & take control of business on the road to Atlanta.GO DAWGS!!

There’s only one problem… UofL isn’t on that list!

Matthew T. Cornelius - March 27, 2014 - 11:00 PM

Love these caps. Would be very keep to win one!

Layne Saliba - March 28, 2014 - 11:39 AM

1) Florida State Seminoles – As long as Winston doesn’t get injured while playing baseball, there’s no reason FSU shouldn’t be the top team.

2) Auburn Tigers – Talent and coaching from Malzahn should keep the Tigers in the top 3

3) Michigan State Spartans – Bringing back key offensive players and having a solid defense could make the Spartans a National Title team this year.

4) Oklahoma Sooners – After the win against Bama, the Sooners have the momentum to keep themselves in the top 5.

5) Alabama Crimson Tide – It will be hard to replace McCarron, but there is so much talent elsewhere on the field that the Tide shouldn’t have a problem competing.

6) Oregon Ducks – With Mariota returning, the Ducks should be able to contend for another Conference Title, if not National Title.

7) Georgia Bulldogs – With the 2013 season behind them, Hutson Mason should be able to do big things with the Bulldogs. Assuming players stay healthy and out of trouble.

8) UCLA Bruins – Shoube be a good offensive year with Hundly returning. Defense could be a problem, but some spots were filled with solid players.

9) Ohio State Buckeyes – Assuming Braxton Miller stays healthy, the Buckeyes should be able to make it back to where they have been the past two years.

10) Baylor Bears – With Petty on the field again, there’s no reason that we won’t be looking at a possible back-to-back Big 12 Title team in the Bears.

Joshua Kaplan - March 28, 2014 - 6:11 PM

Really looking forward to this season. Cliff Kingsbury and the Red Raiders are looking good.

Don’t forget about the cowboys in Stillwater. Hopefully they can be back on top. Thanks for the giveaway.

First year no longer in Florida to root for the Gators, but will be supporting them from Delaware! Gators going to rebound in a big way!

Onward Reserve Spring Wishlist…Bloggers Unite

I always get excited in the Fall and in the Spring.  Those are the transition times for my favorite season: college football in the Fall, and golf in the Spring.  Wardrobes change as well.  Spring is about rebirth – whether it’s my golf game or my closet.  They both need some work this time of […]

A-MEN! Thank you for having the proper perspective on the inseam length for a pair of shorts! If I want the tops of my knees protected from the sun I will wear pants.

Madison Roberts - March 24, 2014 - 12:57 PM

RCS,
What’s your take as far as the fit of Onward Reserve shirts – are they similar to a Ledbury slim fit shirt or more bulky?
