on sale: the i+w jack canvas utility coat

iwcanvascoat

you gotta love the changing of the seasons.  a lot of the time that means sales.  imogene and willie has been trying to unload some of their inventory this week.  the jack canvas utility coat is currently marked down from $265 to $165.  that’s a savings of a $100 to you and me.  they’re out of smalls, but everything else is in stock.  better act fast.

wes lang x i+w bandana

wes lang is a badass.  if you’re not familiar with his work, google “wes lang grateful dead” or “wes lang kanye.”  dude has ridiculous amounts of street cred.  it’s no surprise that he’s a) friends with matt and carrie eddmenson from imogene + willie and b) partnered with them to make this limited edition bandana.  there are 500 of them available, so act fast if you want one.  buy yours here and be sure to check out the video on his work.

i + w candle

ipluswcandle

i have a dog.  she smells awful 35% of the time.  it’s not my fault.  i’m not the one that instructs her to roll around in dirt and s**t (literally – wtf is wrong with her) and pine needles.  a couple of weeks ago, my lady and i were entertaining another couple for dinner and she asked me get a candle for my stinky house.  i knew exactly what to buy.

if you’ve ever been to imogene + willie in nashville, then you know it’s one of the best smelling stores around.  and the best part is that they sell their scent in the form of one badass looking candle.  i’m not gonna lie, it’s pricey at $55, but it’s well worth it.  i burn that s**t every night.  in fact, it’s burning right now.  you can order one here.  just do it.  no chick likes a stinky house.

nashville love

iwnashhat

i’m in love with my city.  no apologies.  i realize there’s a whole other world out there, but i can visit that world on weekends and vacations.  i’m glad to see nashville’s own imogene + willie loves this city as much as i do.  they’ve recently added a nashville ball cap – celebrating nashville’s baseball history – and a limited edition t-shirt featuring the words – you guessed it – “nashville” on it.  i promise not to wear both at the same time.

bad news: the t-shirt is sold out, but it’s still great to look at.  fingers crossed they’ll make some more.

imogene + willie short sleeve workshirts

iwshortsleeve

i ran into matt and carrie (name dropper) last month at northerngrade and asked them if they had any short sleeve shirts in the works.  honestly, i’m getting old and can’t remember if they said they did or they didn’t, but it appears that they did and they are awesome.  they come in two colors (salmon & desert) and are made of “japanese shuttle-woven cotton jaspe” which makes them incredibly soft.  also, the selvage detail on the shirts will prevent you from looking like a nerdy middle school teacher.  buy them here before it’s too late.

ledbury was in nashville last week shooting for their nashville themed lookbook and short run collection.  one of the individuals they picked for the shoot was my old man, ron samuels.  he’s been one of my style icons for as long as i can remember.  the dude is a sharp dresser.  you can head over to ledbury and see the whole lookbook featuring max and ben goldberg of the patternson house and other excellent restaurants and bars, phillip nappi of peter nappi, and my buddy jay wilkison of imogene + willie.  and don’t forget about the ledbury pop-up shop this friday and saturday at the peter nappi studio.
