INTERSTELLAR

i saw interstellar last night.  i then stayed up for the remainder of the evening trying to decode it.  i still haven’t figured it out which is not to say that it’s not a good movie.  it is a good movie.  it’s just thought provoking and complicated and exhausting.  if you’re not into that, there’s always dumb and dumber to.  

as far as menswear is concerned, there’s really only one item of clothing worth mentioning: mcconaughey’s carhartt jacket.  it’s been a working man’s staple for as long as i can remember.  i had a buddy from college who wore this exact jacket year round.  he was also a peanut farmer.  my guess is that you are not a peanut farmer and that’s ok.  it shouldn’t deter from purchasing your own interstellar jacket (there’s a reason it’s been around so long).  just make sure to throw some dirt on yours or run over it with your car before taking a test run around your city.  and in case you were wondering, his boots were red wing iron rangers (not that i notice those kinds of things).

head games

i’m not sure about your weather, but we’re sweatin’ out here in nashville.  it was 77 degrees today.  it’s probably not the best time to be discussing stocking hats, but go ahead and get yours before there’s a run on them this holiday season.  here are my four favorite this year:

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.
