nike lunar control 4 golf shoes


my golf blog didn’t really take off.  i didn’t realize it at the time, but blogging about golf is pretty damn hard.  it would also be a full time job and i have a job and don’t want to lose that one.  i’m going to combine the two blogs and occasionally throw up some golf stuff on here.  i hope you don’t mind.

yesterday nike released their new lunar control golf shoe (which should be called “the rory” but whatever it’s not up to me).  i absolutely love them.  i bought a pair of lunar control 3s this summer and they are the ultimate in comfort and function.  these are apparently lighter and more comfortable with improved cleats (or spikes if you will).  they also feature an extra large swoosh across the front.  be prepared to see a lot of these when the weather gets warm.

filson vermonter flask


file this under things you don’t need because it’s way too expensive ($325) to treat yo self, but if someone gave it to you as a gift, you would be really excited to receive it because it’s awesome.  you are looking at a filson flask, but it’s not just any flask.  it’s made out of copper and according to filson it’s leakproof.  it’s also wrapped in tin cloth and bridle leather for “durability and added grip” – which you will probably need after consuming 3/4 of its contents.

style icon: jean paul belmondo


in college, i took a class on cinema and we watched several french films.  jean-luc godard’s breathless was on that list.  if you haven’t seen that movie and have patience for subtitles, i highly recommend it.  it was the start of french new wave cinema and jean paul belmondo’s breakthrough role.

one of my main takeaways from breathless was “f**k! this dude (belmondo) is cool.”  belmondo exemplifies french style in the 60’s – a kind of effortless look that would look like you were trying too hard today.  belmondo wasn’t necessarily good looking, but had a natural confidence about him that translated to the way he wore his tweed jackets, trilby hats and silk socks with loafers.  dude always looked like he didn’t give a s**t.  and if you want to know where your pants should meet your shoes, belmondo provides a good example: keep it on the short side (thom brown knows what’s up).  oh, and one last thing, anna karina is a total babe.

north face for j. crew mountain jacket


and while we’re on the subject of fratty (see below post)…j. crew has partnered with north face for the re-release of its “iconic” mountain jacket.  i’ll be honest, this jacket looks like every other north face jacket i’ve ever owned, but j. crew’s website tells me it’s a lot different i.e. it has reinforced shoulders like the one from 1985 and longer zipper pulls.  ok, if you say so j. crew.

patagonia bivy vest


a couple of weeks ago, one of my girl friends ditched her tinder date because he was wearing a vest.  i can’t say i blame her.  if i was meeting a girl for the first time, i might have tried a little harder.  maybe it wasn’t the right kind of vest?  no, she hates all vests.  they’re too fratty.

i, for one, love a good vest.  the weather in nashville has been too warm to wear one lately, but that’s not going to stop me.  i’m the real rebel every damn day (wesley willis quote for those so inclined).  this vest season, i’m going with the patagonia bivy down vest.  the video on the website says it’s in its element for “chopping wood, loading the boat or checking the surf.”  that means it’s perfect for me because i do all of those things on the reg.

women we appreciate: the women of tumblr (part 3)


i may be in the minority here, but i love the way women dress in the fall.  for my money, there is nothing sexier than a women in a nice pair of jeans (or leather pants for that matter).  it’s been a year since i’ve done a women we appreciate post.  we’ll call this one “women we appreciate: the women of tumblr (part 3 – fall edition).”  it has a nice ring to it.  none of these photos are mine, so i apologize for using them without permission.  if it’s yours and you want credit or for me to take it down, let me know.  thank you women of tumblr for being such smoke shows.  if any of you are single, holla at ya boy.

sometimes you wear tailored stretchy pants

the sweatpants thing won’t go away.  you might as well give in.  i gave in.  i own a pair.  in fact, i may buy another pair this year.  the thing is when you’re a man, sometimes you wear (tailored) stretchy pants in your room or to the grocery store or to the bar (if you don’t give a rip).  here are a few of my favorites:
