my christmas list

xmaslist2012

we still make christmas lists in my family.  (how else are people supposed to know what to get you.)  i had a hard time coming up with a list this year.  i have everything i need and want in the world, so it came down to a few things that i’ve been hesitant about buying and a few things i could always use.  here it is in no particular order:

fjallraven greenland jacket: i can’t figure out why i don’t have this jacket yet

ipad mini: i have the ipad 2, but i’m ready to ditch it for something a little smaller.

ebbet’s field flannel twill ballcap: i bought a red one this summer and love it.  i need another one to add to the rotation.

camp socks: they will keep your feet warm in the colder months.

jawbone jambox wireless speakers: best bluetooth speakers on the market.

glenn o’brien’s book how to be a man: i’m a big fan of the style guy, but haven’t read his book yet.  shame on me.

patagonia kleen kanteen: we went green at work.  no more bottles of water.

ledbury shirts: i want them all.

titleist velocity golfballs: i should probably be playing pro v1s, but i really like these.

dog bones: it’s christmas for riley too.

pretzel m&m’s: my weakness.

 

taylor stitch x ebbet’s field california bear ballcap

i snoozed on these last week and missed the boat on the navy and white.  i opted for the black and white instead of the more adventurous options e.g. royal and red, grey and black, and black and orange.  these are the signature ebbets field flannel wool ballcaps made for taylor stitch featuring an adjustable leather strap and the california bear (i friggin’ love california).  i can’t do fitted hats any more.  and in case you haven’t noticed, i have a small obsession with ebbets field flannel ballcaps.  they fit my noggin better than any other brand.

this summer’s uniform

as summer starts to wind down, i’ve noticed most days i stick to a strict uniform.  all the things you see above are items i actually own: imogene + willie barton jeans, j. crew short sleeve oxford shirt, timex weekender, ebbets field flannel cap, and tretorn nylites.  rarely will you find me wearing shorts unless i’m on the golf course.  i’ve also retired most of my polo shirts because of the man-boob effect.

what’s your summer uniform?  if you want to put together a kit and send it to me, please do so and i’ll post it below.  send it to coopsamuels@gmail.com.

ebbets field for imogene + willie

i’ve got to give my friend erk some credit.  we went to the movies last night and he was sporting an ebbets field for imogene + willie cap.  the hat looked incredible.  the pictures don’t really do it justice.  i was first introduced to ebbets field last summer when j. crew added them to their stores (what don’t they sell in there).  the hats are vintage inspired and made from original wool fabrics.  basically they’re the best possible reproduction you can find.  their website has a ton of options if you’re not feeling the i+w cross/plus.  perfect for a die-hard, baseball history loving fan like myself.
