tretorn nylite project

i’m a big fan of tretorn nylites.  i currently have 3 pairs (red, white and blue).  i’m a little disappointed that tretorn has not asked me to be part of their nylite project.  i guess i could go ahead and dye my own pair, but it would be a lot cooler if they asked me to do it.

with that said, i’ve got someone else who would like to be included in the nylite project.  meet james.  he’s my friend elliott’s kid and a hell of a dresser at 9 months.  check out those nylites.  he’s already on that next level.  get in line, ladies.

thanks for sending me the pics, erk.

late to the party

at the end of june i bought a pair of the navy waxed nylite tretorns.  i liked ’em so much that i had to grab a pair of the white ones.  i tried to order them in july, but they were sold out everywhere (blogger tipping point i guess).  zappos reloaded and i pulled the trigger.  i figured i’d start my own little nylite project since i wasn’t invited to their party.  currently i’m the only guest, but that’s ok.  you’re invited too.  i love these shoes.  their inexpensive, comfortable, and look great.

last tretorn post until next summer i promise.

my go-to-coat

taking inspiration from skip brooks at alex grant i thought i’d post a quick picture of my go-to-coat before i put it away for the summer.  i bought my barbour bedale 2 years ago and can’t imagine life without it.  it sounds ridiculous to say that about a jacket, but it’s traveled everywhere with me.  it can take a beating by any type of weather and still look good.  you can wear it over layers of clothing or just over a t-shirt and it still fits perfectly.  my wife claims she’s never seen me without it.  that might be true.  if you don’t own anything from barbour, you’re a fool.  save yourself a little extra cash and make the purchase.  you won’t regret it and you won’t leave home without it.  thanks for the idea, skip.
