New Art

I’m working on a post about ‘Dude Decorating’, which is turning out well.  As guys, not only do we need some help and accountability with our clothing style, but we also need some help with our livability style.  Stay tuned… For now, some new art.  I got it in a 9×12 which I’m planning on…

A Little Bit from Oak Street Bootmakers

Blankenship Has You Fleeced

Remember those awesome vintage fleeces from Patagonia?  The ones with the crazy patterns…  It seemed like they only made about ten of each size, because they were impossible to find. Well, not only has Blankenship Dry Goods been killing it with their shorts, but their tailgating fleeces are filling that niche.  Excellent patterns, good fit,…
