If you haven’t noticed, I’ve spent less and less time in this space talking about products. There are two reasons for that. One is because I realized there are other blogs doing it better than I am. And two is because I don’t want to anymore. I’d rather spend my time talking about intangibles than tangibles.
But that doesn’t mean I no longer pay attention to the tangibles. As such, I’d still like to spend some time every once in a while updating you about what has caught my eye.
Gitman Vintage SS10 Neckwear
Let’s start today with a series of summer ties from Gitman Vintage (like the one above). I gravitate towards still wearing a tie in the summer, but switching from the heavy colors and fabrics that you would wear in the winter (just like you should do with the rest of your wardrobe).
Billykirk Leather Journal
While we’re on the subject of Blackbird, these beautiful leather journals from Billykirk are also available there. I’d love to get one, but unfortunately, as my wife likes to point out, I usually like looking at them more than writing in them.
L.L. Bean Ranger Moc
Filson Shelter Cloth Foothills Parka
We’ll call this last entry a desirable for next winter. Filson, another great American company to watch out for, has this sturdy and stylish parka that I’m wishing I would have had for the Chicago winter. Almost makes me wish Spring wasn’t coming.
