baracuta g9 in british tan

a year ago, a good friend of mine gave me his old baracuta g9 in olive green.  it was a size too big for me, but i fell in love with it regardless.  i don’t think i took it off for several months.  this spring i ordered one in my size (the original fits true to your jacket size).  the good news is that it arrived this afternoon; the bad news is that the temperature in nashville was 80 degrees today .  i’m hoping the weather will cool down for a week or two, so i can get a couple of wears in before it’s too hot.

if you’re thinking about buying a baracuta g9, do it.  it’s such a classic jacket.   i get more compliments on my green one than any other jacket in my closet.  and if you’re going to buy one, do it from o’connell’s clothing in buffalo, ny. they have a great selection and take excellent care of their customers.  i can’t recommend them enough.

sid mashburn bridle belt strap

excuse the awful iphone pictures.  i probably could have picked a better background than my hardwood floors, but  everywhere else in my house was too dark.  i mentioned the brass belt buckles from sid mashburn back in january – a gift from being part of a good friend’s wedding.   after a little bit of a wait, i received my sid mashburn bridle belt strap yesterday.  it’s a 1 inch “british tan” leather strap with black feathered edges that compliments the belt buckle nicely.  i went with the light tan because it will stand out with jeans and khakis.  i haven’t had a new belt in several years, so i’m excited to have another option.
