Perrin Triangulation

Back in January Cigar City partnered up with Perrin in Comstock Park, Michigan to brew a batch of Jai Alai in Michigan for the first time. This was possible since Cigar City and Perrin, along with Oskar Blues and Utah Brewers Cooperative are owned by Fireman Capital. For now this was a one-time occurrence and only released at Perrin, but hopefully it nods towards a future where Cigar City finds further distribution in Michigan. Perrin, after all, did just enter Florida. Continue reading

Vineyard Vines Chicago Cubs Jersey 1/4 Zip

In three days the Chicago Cubs will open a season as defending champions for the first time in over a century. It almost feels like it was just last week that I was gathered in the living room with my wife and father-in-law agonizing through that epic rain delay. Now there is no curse to break, but rather a dynasty to attempt to build. While no season could ever top last year, I’m certainly looking forward to this year’s. Continue reading

Ledbury Petersham Plaid Shirt

Red, white and blue. I’m pretty sure half of the shirts in my closet are in that combination. Luckily it is a classic combo that can be tweaked pretty easily by slightly adjusting the tint of the components. So it’s no surprise that the shirt that first caught my eye in Ledbury’s latest crop of arrivals was the Petersham Plaid, a, go figure, red, white and blue shirt. Continue reading

Brooks Brothers Supima® Cotton Stripe Button Mocneck Sweater

Spring officially began on Monday (even if it hasn’t particularly felt like it so far), which means a lot of spring collections have been launching lately. I stopped over at Brooks Brothers to see what the venerable brand had in store for this year and certainly found some winners. First up is the Supima® Cotton Stripe Button Mocneck Sweater.

Strong Boalt Coral Classic Swim Trunk

Tomorrow night I’m heading down to Tampa for five days of much needed rest and relaxation. Or at least as much rest as one can get with a 20-month-old in tow. It will be nice to hit the beach and soak up some sun and warm weather. So with a beach vacation in mind, let’s take a look at the Coral Classic Swim Trunks from Strong Boalt. Continue reading

Southern Proper Old Glory Party Performance Polo

At about the time the second set of basketball games of the night hits halftime on Friday, one of the most important soccer games in the history of this country will be kicking off. If you hadn’t heard, we lost the first two qualifying games for the World Cup, putting the USMNT in a perilous position. There’s still plenty of time to right the ship, but it all has to start Friday. Continue reading

The Shop March On Tees

There have been no buzzer beaters. The lowest seed left is an 11 that, were it not for injuries, would have been a single digit seed. The only potential Cinderellas left are high majors. Despite all that March Madness has still been a blast. After a bit of a slow start we’ve been treated to some really good games. And there are still two Indiana schools left, plus four more from across the Midwest. There are still a few days left before the games start up again, which leaves us just enough time to gear up for the next round with the March On Tees from The Shop. Continue reading

Toppling Goliath Pseudosue

Paleontologist. Back when I was seven or eight that’s what I wanted to be when I grew up. I’m pretty sure every little boy that grew up in the nineties wanted to be a paleontologist at one time or another thanks to Jurassic Park and the The Land Before Time. But now that I’ve grown up I’ve found myself far away from hunting fossils. And yet for the past couple of years I’ve hunted a dinosaur of another kind.  Continue reading
