how to handle a firearm featuring humphrey bogart

humphrey bogart is one of my all time favorite actors and one of the coolest guys to ever walk the face of the planet.  i don’t think i’ve seen a picture of him where he didn’t look perfectly put together.  recently i found these publicity shots of bogart from the 1941 film high sierra.  as you can see, he looked extremely comfortable handling a firearm.  click read more for the rest of the pics.

taylor stitch x ebbet’s field california bear ballcap

i snoozed on these last week and missed the boat on the navy and white.  i opted for the black and white instead of the more adventurous options e.g. royal and red, grey and black, and black and orange.  these are the signature ebbets field flannel wool ballcaps made for taylor stitch featuring an adjustable leather strap and the california bear (i friggin’ love california).  i can’t do fitted hats any more.  and in case you haven’t noticed, i have a small obsession with ebbets field flannel ballcaps.  they fit my noggin better than any other brand.

red wing heritage collection 2012

this is what i like to call lazy blogging i.e. posting a video of something i’m interested in with little to no description or analysis.  the only thing i will tell you is that red wing boots are essential to my fall/winter “uniform.”  i rarely wear anything else – not even pants or a shirt; just boots (kidding of course).  the last thing i need is another pair of red wing boots i will never break in, but those 2922 chelsea rancher boots are steadily climbing to the top of my wish list.

new balance cm1600 in heritage blue

if you’re a hypebeast reader, then you probably saw these the other day.  if you’re not, then you’re probably seeing them for the first time and that’s ok too.  i owned a pair of 1600s in college, but in “frat” grey (not really a color, but all dudes in fraternities have grey new balance shoes at some point in their college career).  i like this heritage blue color a lot better.  you can buy your very own pair at kitch nyc.  time to start working on my fall shoe game.

this summer’s uniform

as summer starts to wind down, i’ve noticed most days i stick to a strict uniform.  all the things you see above are items i actually own: imogene + willie barton jeans, j. crew short sleeve oxford shirt, timex weekender, ebbets field flannel cap, and tretorn nylites.  rarely will you find me wearing shorts unless i’m on the golf course.  i’ve also retired most of my polo shirts because of the man-boob effect.

what’s your summer uniform?  if you want to put together a kit and send it to me, please do so and i’ll post it below.  send it to coopsamuels@gmail.com.
