Rockport Ledge Hill Boot

Rockport Ledge Hill Boot

I always thought Rockports were for old folks like my dad... until I purchased a pair of loafers and classic dress shoes for the office. This pair is my new obsession for the winter months of cold and rainy conditions.

Rustic Vintage Leather Briefcase

In my quest for a sturdy, rugged laptop briefcase that didn't require a second mortgage, I believe I may have found a winner. I've had a few other Glanor products and have never been let down.

Tissot Men's Class Dream White Dial Watch

Been looking for a very clean, basic, but well made watch as a long-term investment... eventually something to possibly pass down to an adult son one day down the road. What are some other brings out there on the same Tissot level you like?

Kenneth Cole Messenger Bag: "Mind Your Own Business"

Kenneth Cole Messenger Bag: "Mind Your Own Business"

I've been dinged for not always "looking professional" in a professional world. My norm is a North Face backpack to travel with my work laptop and anything else I need for the road. Been looking for a bag/briefcase/messenger that combos professional, rugged, semi-formal and functional. Would love ...

O'fallon Brewery - Ofallon, Missouri

O'fallon Brewery - Ofallon, Missouri

I've always been of the impression that if you're going to consume calories, you need to make them count. And that goes for beer as well. We discovered O'Fallon at the Earth Fare grocery store last summer and we were hooked for cookouts and tailgating. The Gold ...

I'm not obsessive about having a tricked-out "man cave" or anything, but I wouldn't turn down my wife saying "honey, have at it." If that happens, everyone's invited over for March Madness. You bring the Woodford.

Old Crow Medicine Show Return With New Album, Tour

Old Crow Medicine Show Return With New Album, Tour

In my view, the best talent is the one that can strip it down to the bare bones and just PLAY in it's most pure form. Nothing can be more true about Old Crow. Nothing fancy, over produced or glammed up. Just strong lyrics and playing. Period.

Wolverine Men's Work Boot

Wolverine Men's Work Boot

My granddad use to call boots like this "shit kickers," but I promised my wife I wouldn't call them that around our soon-to-arrive daughter. I've had a pair that have lasted more than 10 years of heavy wear and I can still sport them to the office.

Uncle Teddy... likely the most interesting person to ever serve as Commander in Chief, and the first "environmentalist" in office.

"The Everlasting Stream: A True Story of Rabbits, Guns, Friendship, and Family"  Walt Harrington

"The Everlasting Stream: A True Story of Rabbits, Guns, Friendship, and Family" Walt Harrington

Just started reading this piece after seeing a review on Buffalo Jackson. Reconciling the pulls of urban and rural life and how it can create tension in a man's identity sounds like an interesting narrative, as it's something I've struggled with for a while.

Nothing - not one thing - beats Hatch Show Prints on Broadway in Nashville. Still making block print posters a more than a hundred years later, it reminds me why I love classic printing techniques and wishes I had studied graphic design in school.
