I was asked by a reader: ‘what’s on your Christmas list?’. You know, that’s a good question. We talk about all sorts of good stuff here on the blog, but most of it is fashion-based. While this is fine, I’ve found that it’s rare I ask for clothes for Christmas (or my birthday). There is too much risk.
I was asked for a list from my family this year, so here you go:
Sid Mashburn garment-dyed Levis 501s in Olive. The garment-dyed Levis 501s have quickly become my favorite pants. I have quite a few colors, and am always looking to add more to the stash. Enter Olive…the least desirable shade of khakis, but a very smart looking pair of jeans. These with a navy sweater or an oxford blue button down and brown shoes are just what the doctor ordered.
Yard tools. It’s been a little over a year since Mrs. RCS and I moved into our house (from a condo), and 95% of our focus since moving in has been on the interior. While we’ve done a little work on the landscaping, we have a LONG way to go. We are going to need lawn tools to make some progress…and Christmas is an excellent time to stock up.
Sonos Play:3. We’re pulling the trigger on Sonos for our house. We have an over all plan that includes a Soundbar, a 3, and a couple 1s, but we’ll start slowly. I have quite a few buddies that swear by Sonos, so we are excited to get going. The biggest decision is black or white…right now we’re leaning towards white, as we don’t want it to look like an appliance.
‘Order to Kill’ by Kyle Mills. It was heartbreaking when the ultra-talented Vince Flynn passed away, but he left a legacy of books that are incredible. Mitch Rapp and I became buddies back in 2001 when my dad gave me a stack of his books. I’ve ready every one since, and need to add the latest.
Basics: Shotgun Shells, Golf Balls, and Razors. I call these the ‘adult’ gifts. As an adult, I am glad to buy myself just about anything I want (within reason), but there are a few things I HATE buying: shotgun shells, golf balls, and razors. They are all boring, and quite frankly don’t need to be wrapped, but I can guarantee that they will all get used. Boring, but perfect.
What’s on your list this year?
