Back in the farm country of rural southwest Missouri, one of my old man’s favorite pastimes during our occasional white Christmases is to read “Snow-Bound,” an 1866 narrative poem by John Greenleaf Whittier. It reminisces about the getting stuck in the family homestead and hunkering down to tell stories to each other in front of the fire.
Might be a little late now, but for the next snowpocalypse, you might want to consider these:

3.1 Phillip Lim Fall 2011 gave me some ideas. Just pair it with a patent black leather boot and perhaps some dark army & forest green hues. A little dark for my taste, but we’ll see.
Yeah, I know this post is late & it’s Wednesday. Welcome.
If you waited all winter for the Patagonia Web Specials to go live like me, your time has finally arrived. It’s not much off, maybe some tax, but hey, grab it now while you still can. I’ve snagged some baggies after their summer sale and now I’m waiting for my paycheck to go in to grab a down sweater. Here are my top picks that you need for the winter, if you don’t already have them:
Fleece will keep you warm, but won’t necessarily block the wind.
Shell will block the wind, but won’t keep you as warm.
Down jacket will keep you warm and block the wind.

|men’s insulator for $104, was $150|
|men’s down sweater $140, was $200.|
Or just take care of it all & grab this:

I’m always open for something classic with a different take. And by that I mean, something that Gitman Brothers Vintage has done.

Cam & I both own a Gitman Brother’s Shirt. And cannot wait to pick up another for Spring. Dope design, cut & style. Not exactly in the budget, but definitely worth every penny if you count it for cost per wear. You can snag them on sale, if you’re lucky. Or off eBay like we both did.
