Changing the world is good for those who want their names in books.  But being happy, that is for those who write their names in the lives of others, and hold the hearts of others as the treasure most dear.

The Barbour Heritage Collection

April 15, 2014


Barbour jackets have to be one of the best spring jackets out there. Of course they are well made, great in the rain, and actually good for venturing out into the outdoors, but perhaps more than all that, they just look good.

Check out the two Barbour jackets below that we are carrying this spring because of their rain performance as well as their breathability. 


Tape Fly


Available Online. Slim fitting, fully waterproof and yet fully breathable jacket from Barbour. Patch pockets. Army Green. $349.


Amphibian Jacket


Available Online. Fishing inspired, cotton-mixed jacket. Fully functional fishing jacket with a trim silhouette. Covert Green. $299.

Oxxford Trunk Show Spring 2014

We’ve always loved the sign that hangs in the shop at Oxxford in Chicago. It is time again for the Oxxford Trunk Show, this year with our new friend Gary Heskje. Gary will be bringing some exquisite fabrics for you to create your own made-to-measure piece. If you haven’t been to an Oxxford Trunk Show before, come by this Thursday and see what makes Oxxford the world’s best suit and sport coat, made in America. To sweeten the deal, we are giving a 10% discount on orders placed during the event. But even if you don’t intend to buy, come by and check out what makes this company so special.

See you Thursday the 3rd.

Harrison Presents: St. Paul & the Broken Bones – Call Me

March 7, 2014

Last month, we were honored to have some Birmingham natives in the shop for a Harrison Presents recording session the night before their new album released. These guys are making a pretty big splash right now on tour and we have a feeling you will like their music. Here is a sneak peek of the full session with their first single “Call Me” in an acoustic setting.  

Check out their new record on itunes.
