the i’ll be home for christmas kit

christmas day is my favorite day of the year.  i’m spoiled to have most of my family here in nashville, so we all head over to my parents house to open presents and eat brunch.  it’s the one day of the year my mom cooks.  she makes the most amazing french toast i’ve ever had.  here’s what i’ll be sporting come sunday morning:

j. crew fair isle sweater – one of the better looking sweaters i’ve seen this year

danner mountain trail boots – the most badass hiking boots you will find.  period.  size down a half.

grown & sewn heavy foundation trousers – pants that are cut like your favorite denim.  on sale now for $99.

mitchell & ness chicago bears script hat – the original version of this hat starred in the movie christmas vacation.  you might have seen it.

apple iPad 2 – i don’t leave home without it.  instant entertainment when everyone is taking their christmas naps.

rawhide dog bone – how else are you supposed to keep your dog occupied while you’re eating and opening presents?  might need a couple of them.

i hope every one has a great holiday.  i’ll be blogging on and off for the next couple of days.

mitchell and ness throwback hats

i’m a sucker for anything that reminds me of my childhood, so when i rediscovered these mitchell and ness hats i thought they were worth a mention.  my first encounter with mitchell and ness came this past spring when i spotted some nba throwbacks at a local sporting goods store.  i dismissed them as too hip hop for me, but cool none-the-less.  last week when searching for a new bears hat, i found the mitchell and ness website (thanks google) and my jaw dropped.  i actually owned the original versions of all three hats above.  the hats are made with cotton twill or wool and feature the high crown retro shape and green under visor that we all loved when we were kids.  i’ve been complaining about how they don’t make snapback hats like they used to.  thanks to mitchell and ness i can’t complain any more.
