apc x carhartt down vest

seeing the words apc & carhartt together still weirds me out a little bit.  mainly because the only pants i wore in college were carhartts, and when i stopped trying to act like a redneck after college,  i bought a pair of apc new standards.  (not that you have to be a redneck to wear carhartt pants but i thought i was when i put them on).  all kidding aside, it makes sense that these two brands would come together and produce some good looking s**t like this down vest.  it also comes in black, but i’m partial to this hazel color.  the only downside is the price.  (hint it’s $320).  what do you expect.  it’s apc.  duh.

red clay soul & to take the train black friday loot

you might remember that i ordered a penfield outback vest last month in british green.  it’s become a weekend staple of mine since it arrived (i never leave home without it).  a week or so later, i saw a tweet from jrs of red clay soul saying that he had seen the cobalt colored vest at sid mashburn’s and that it looked phenomenal.  my interest were piqued.  i responded to his tweet that maybe i made mistake in my color selection.  fast forward to black friday: jrs sends me a direct message asking if i wanted to split 20% off the cobalt vest via penfield’s website.  it took a matter of seconds for me to say “hell yes.”  the vest arrived this week and jay has posted an excellent review over at red clay soul.  please check it out.  these pictures belong to him (obviously since they’re 100x better than my originals).  thanks again for cutting me in on your black friday loot, jay.

penfield outback vest

i meant to buy a new vest last fall, but never got around to it.  every man needs a good vest in his closet.  i’ve been wearing one of these light weight numbers from lands end for two years now.  it’s time for an upgrade.  after much deliberation, i decided to go with the outback vest from penfield.  it’s one of their “iconic” pieces – made of their 60/40 cotton nylon and insulated with 80/20 premium down.  i couldn’t settle on a color so i flipped a coin between british green and navy.  it landed on british green.  i don’t think i’ll be disappointed.
