Red Out Giveaway with Southern Proper

Last Saturday was tough, Georgia fans.  Soft defense, two missed field goals, and a dumb play at the goal line gave South Carolina an important SEC win.  Keep your head up, Bulldogs.  There’s plenty of schedule left, and judging by how Auburn looked last night, EVERYTHING is up in the air in the SEC.  But…

Barbour Body Bag

Remember that vintage Sage Barbour Bedale I found a while back?  Well, it arrived, and I immediately sent it up to New England Reproofers for a wash and a re-waxing.  As usual, they did an awesome job, and I will continue to use them for their service. Now, anyone who has an vintage Barbour knows…
