Representing the better half of the state of Missouri, Boulevard Brewing Company took the title. As a local Kansas City native, I’m glad to support our local brewery that consistently produces amazing craft beers. Although, I do love a summer Weach from O’Fallon and I’ve got some Coffee Stout from Schlafly in the fridge right now, I’m glad my hometown took the title. So far I’ve drank beer from Alaska Brewing Company, Nimbus, New Belgium, Dogfish Head, Landshark, Free State, Abita, Flying Dog Brewery, Bells, Big Sky Brewing Company, Granite City and Full Sail. I think that’s about it… Dogfish Head and Bells are among my other favorites that I’ve had.

I’ll go ahead and tack this map on my wall alongside my “To Drink:” list.

HAVE: camel hair sportcoat

February 6, 2011
I’m not tired of winter, just tired of wearing so many dark colors. So a little life was brought to my outfit today. 100% Camel Hair Sportcoat, son. 
“Jones Store” camel hair sport coat size 38L ($8) , American Apparel Small Oxford ($58),
Kenneth Stevens thrifted tie ($1)

Poor tie job, I know. Rocking this with some 14oz Karabo Baldwins and some blue suede bucks.

The camel hair breaks up the monochromatic look of blue shoes, blue jeans, blue shirt, and blue tie. No socks, of course. It’s not THAT cold. Happy Sunday, gentlemen.

The greatest lyricist of our time

Would Dylan have been considered to have good sartorial style at the time this photo (by Richard Avedon) was taken, or is this just another sign that we’re all into classic style now? On a related note, is “classic” ever out of style? Today, the answer’s no. But what was the answer in the ’80s?

WANT: canoe wood watch

February 4, 2011

I have an affinity for unusual wooden accessories, whether it be iPhone skins or eyeglasses. However with my birthday approaching today, a wooden watch would be a nice touch.

Nothing like the great outdoors strapped to your wrist for a little Midwestern flair. It’s just enough to let other people know that you might care about the outdoors without tree hugging. Made in Canada too, eh.
