well, i bit the bullet and created an instagram account for to take the train (it’s totakethetrain_).  the goal is to keep the blog going on social media since i haven’t done an excellent job of updating to take the train in 2014.  (i promise i’ll do better.)  i went down to the billy reid shindig this past weekend and had every intention of taking a million photos for the newly christened instagram account, but these were the only 4 i posted.  it was a shame too because it was a baller weekend.  i’ll definitely be going back next year.  in the meantime, if you’re looking for a new instagram account to follow, click here and do it.  you won’t be dissapointed – at least not for a little while i hope.

thank you great lakes prep

i wanted to give a quick shout out to nick yoder at great lakes prep for including me in his “you ought to be reading” series.  he sent me a couple of questions to answer about to take the train and they are posted here.  i hope i don’t sound like a total d-bag.  thanks again, nick.

shout out to valet

i went to order a new pair of rubber mocs yesterday and noticed the shout out to valet on l.l. bean’s website.  it reads “as seen in valet magazine, october 2011.”  that small mention made me very happy for their team.  i’ve been reading valet since 2008 (i think) and wouldn’t have a blog or be interested in half the stuff i’m interested in without them.  they do such an incredible job of helping dudes like me find cool things on the internet.  i would guess that most of my readership has come from valet’s generous mentions of to take the train via their morning report.  if you’re not checking out valet everyday then you need to be.  keep up the good work and thanks for all you do.

f**k yeah menswear

f**k yeah menswear is this weeks greatest tumblr ever and for good reason.  it’s hilarious and spot on.  today they ripped take ivy.  the saddest part of reading it is identifying certain blogs i look at.  dude’s got it down perfect.  the word “crispy” should never have been used to describe a person’s dress in the first place.  it’s ridiculous.  i’m hoping to see a post regarding kanye soon.
