This Thursday: Southern Proper Oyster Roast @ Onward Reserve Buckhead

To all you Atlanta folks – come on by Onward Reserve for an oyster roast to celebrate Southern Proper’s new Heritage Shop.  We talked about it a little earlier, and it is awesome.  The new Southern Proper goods look great, and you won’t find any hospitality finer that at Onward Reserve.  Tell your mama, tell your friends…see you tomorrow night!

New UGA Goodies

So to all my UGA readers…and I know there are quite a few of you…there are some GREAT new goodies out there that will help you look amazing when we beat USC and take the South Carolina State Championship.

First – the red Athens gameday visor from State Traditions.  It’s red, like the helmet:

Second – the Onward Reserve ‘On the Rocks’ polo in white.  You know, white, since we are the visiting team:

And finally, the BRAND NEW, UGA specials from our friends at Chubbies: the GATAs.  Pure badass-ness:

Thoughts?  Anyone?


Ledbury Sale Dividends

I’m happy to admit I took full advantage of the Ledbury Sale.  TONS of great shirts at very attractive prices.  These investments are paying dividends…

Roundup: Labor Day Sales

This weekend is the intersection of some serious ‘Wrinkle in Time’ stuff: College Football season kicks off, a three day weekend, and the Labor Day sales that go with it.  Labor Day is observed in honor of all the workers, so take advantage of all three this big weekend.

There is a serious dollar-value shift in the consumers favor this weekend, and we here at Red Clay Soul want to help.  Here’s what’s going on this weekend:

Brooks Brothers – Up to 60% off Labor Day Event.  Seriously good stuff going on.  My pick: Oxford Fun Shirt

My Birthday List

I’ve got a birthday coming up.  After 21, they don’t really matter, but I always get the question from my loved ones: “What do you want for your birthday?”.  To be honest, I have too much stuff.  I’ve moved to the opinion that space in my place is like real estate – with a high value per square foot.  What takes up space better be worth it…no squatters.

I don’t really like asking for stuff…but I do have my eye on a few things:

Clockwise from top left:

1. Antique Box: I’ve got a bunch of stuff – watches, collar stays, cufflinks, etc., and I need a place to keep them.  Something like this has to be found over at an antique market.  The search is the best part.
2. Laguiole 7mm Knife: I like to think of this as the ‘business man’s special’.  I have been carrying a knife on my keychain, but it’s too tough to use.  I want this one to act on it’s own.
3.  Col. Littleton No. 18 Portfolio: Even though we work in a highly technical world, not everything can be carried on a Macbook.  Sometimes I have to go old school and carry documents and make/take notes.  I want this one to be my caddie.
4. Lucchese Powell Boots: Something new from cool are these?  I like the double monk touch, but I really like the dressy look with rubber soles.  Wear these all day long…
5. 2015 Ford Bronco: Because it’s 100% badass.

New Collegiate Yeti Coolers

For all you Yeti Cooler fans out there:

Yeti has just released a series of college logo’ed coolers just in time for college football season.  They offer them in three sizes: the Roadie 20, the Tundra 45, and the Tundra 65.  Same features as their non-logo’ed coolers, and only available in white.  They currently have 28 colleges and universities available.  Not a bad move from Yeti…now you can keep your beer on the same ice two weeks in a row…
