Back To School

As weird as it is, the kiddos are already heading back to school. I remember my summer break being much longer: we usually got out after the first week of June, and didn’t go back until the week before Labor Day.  Whatever, we didn’t get a fall break, a winter break, or any of the…

In Hand: The Ball and Buck Anorak 2.0

By now, you all know about Ball and Buck, and those that have pulled the trigger are well aware of their high quality products.  I have quite a few Ball and Buck items; mostly pants and Hunter’s shirts, and they are all incredible.  Ball and Buck has a cult following.  Most people that buy anything…

Hats

It’s that time of year when the white technical fabric hats get a little played out, in favor of something more substantial for the late-Summer, early Fall run.  The more substantial styles of hats you can wear fishing, to the ball game, or leave outside in the rain (a great way to break it in…)….

Beat the Heat

Admittedly, I have been very bearish on any sort of technical fabric.  The early days of the cotton alternative technical wear had a weird sheen that didn’t look natural.  It was an idea vs. execution thing: I really liked the idea, but the early execution was poor. Technical fabric has grown up a lot over…

RCS Review: Allbirds

I took the plunge.  I recently pulled the trigger on a pair of Allbirds Wool Runners.  I have been looking at this style of shoes for quite some time, but was apprehensive because I’m not that hip.  I was looking at these as an alternative to driving mocs or my old New Balance 990s.  I…
