The World Series starts tonight. Admittedly, with the Braves being as bad as they were this year, I’ve lost a little steam with everything else that is going on in MLB. Mets vs. Royals. I like it. In cases like these, I usually pull for the smaller-market team, but since the Mets are division rivals with the Braves, I’m pulling for KC. Here’s to a great series, folks.
…and the hits just keep on coming… The ladies at Southern Proper have been doing an outstanding job of expanding their line WAY beyond neck ties and bow ties. At this point they essentially offer a full menswear line, and have started dipping their toe into women’s wear.
Think of Southern Proper like this: it’s exactly what you want your spouse to pick out for you. The ladies have impeccable taste, and it shows in their Fall line. Great plaids, functional pullovers, and cool outerwear.
And we’re going to give one lucky Red Clay Soul reader a Nelson Pullover and a Southern Shirt of their choice. Leave a comment to this post with your choice of shirt and pullover to enter. For additional entries:
Entries must be in by midnight on Sunday, November 1st. I’ll announce the winner on Monday, the 2nd around lunchtime.
Special thanks to Southern Proper for providing the goods for the giveaway…
Do you ever have those mornings where you look in your closet and feel like you have nothing to wear? Cold mornings, hot afternoons, and warm evenings make it tough on outerwear decisions. Layering is starting to be a part of the conversation, but by lunchtime that extra sweater puts your Right Guard to the test.
My suggestion? Keep a couple Fall Jackets available. By “Fall Jacket”, I mean a something that provides a thin layer of warmth, and some protection from the elements, but nothing heavy duty. An updated Baracuta (if you remember those). Another suggestion: keep two. One that is the fleece/outdoorsy/active version, and one that is dressier: something quilted or wool. This covers just about all your bases. There is quite a spectrum; here are some options:
1. Marmot Hawkins Jacket: Marmot doesn’t get much copy, and I don’t know why. They make a GREAT selection of jackets and are very affordable. Their fit has gotten much better as of late, and their color choices are spot on. This Hawkins jacket looks outstanding – the front flap pockets dress it up quite a bit.
What are you sporting this time of year?
Today is Lewis Grizzard’s birthday. He graced this Earth (more specifically this state) in 1946. His contribution to Southern culture is immeasurable.

To celebrate Mr. Grizzard’s birthday, head over to Classic Georgia for 20% off their Grizzard stuff…in fact, it’s 20% off the entire site through the end of the month. Use code redclaysoul to take advantage.

Much more to come…
Team – the EVERYTHING event is on at Jack Spade. 25% off your entire order…including the Sale section. This is a great opportunity to load up on some basics, and a good bag (or two). Me? I am seriously tempted to pull the trigger on this Oxford Leather Fairbanks duffle. It’s hard to be at $200… ($269-25%).
