The Only Ad Persol Should Ever Need

Marketing is a funny thing, and sometimes things just fall in your lap.  Remember when Tiger made the chip-in on 16 at The Masters, and the Nike logo was perfectly placed for the camera just as the ball rolled into the hole?  Yeah, stuff like that. Well, there was another moment like that for one […]

Have You Seen: “Raiders Of The Lost Ark” (1981)

Famed Archeologist Owns Whip; Destroys Precious Artifacts Raiders of the Lost Ark is a way tough movie about this guy who is trying to find treasures from the Bible. There are bad guys trying to find the treasures too which means that there’s tons of danger and fighting. The movie stars Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones. Harrison […]

Moses from the bible, not Jesus. 🙂

Your review while accurate and appreciated also makes me feel very dated. I assume you are a fairly young person because it seems you refer to the movie like I might refer to a silent film. The fact that Indiana Jones was franchised to a trilogy I guess keeps it fresh with me. Nontheless, it is a great film and the first one of the trilogy is my favorite. I can not imagine raising male children without introducing them to Indiana Jones. I have 2 young sons 10 and 12 years old who own and love the trilogy. By the way, The Ark of the Covenant contains the Ten Commandments. Perhaps you have to be Catholic to know that in this day and time. No catholic or Christian for that matter should be kept from the Ark of the Covenant. That is why Catholic Churches are always open.

I bet you don’t get the “Come on, Indiana” reference in the new Dodge Dart commercial, do you?

Allow Me To Introduce: Strong Suit

A relatively new player in the suit game is Little Rock, Arkansas based Strong Suit.  They started back in Fall of 2013, and are picking up quite a bit of steam.  Their focus is a gap in the menswear world: a good suit at the $600-800 price point.  And by ‘good’ suit, I mean a […]

Very interested in seeing how these suits stack up to other offerings in the price range. On a less important note, why does it look like they used homeless guys for their models?

Terron Smith - September 23, 2014 - 3:16 PM

I wish I could get a actual hard copy of this magazine the suits are spectacular

Kickstarter: Jack Donnelly – The Great Khaki Comeback

I love their chinos and have been waiting for the Kickstarter to start since I saw them post something on Instagram. I was so excited to get in on this as an Early Bird.

They are already over $12k in the first day. This could set a new record for Kickstarter.

Best of lunch to the JD team.

Steven Bremer - September 22, 2014 - 1:10 PM

luck not lunch. I have food on the brain.

Adam - September 29, 2014 - 3:41 PM

I backed them last week. I already own a pair, and they are great pants. Very happy to see that they are already nearly double funded in just two weeks.

1000 Words: Social Primer Show

My friend Cooper, one of Charleston’s finest and the proprietor of Social Primer, is up to his old antics again.  Last week he hosted a fashion show showcasing ‘The Evening Suit,’  his American made-to-order collection.  It is outstanding.  Flamboyant but very wearable.  And as is the case with any of his events, Cooper knows how […]
