Just up the road from us in Baltimore, Under Armour continues to come up with some of the best sports gear on the market. They’re also turning out some fantastic “lifestyle” pieces as of late. Luckily for us, we get to see the latest and greatest from their collections as soon as they hit the market at their flagship store in Baltimore. On a recent visit, we finally got around to trying on a pair of Performance Chino Shorts.
Last September we were proud to unveil our first ever collaboration with our friends at Krass & Co. Now, ten months later, we’re proud to introduce our second! As of yesterday, the second pair of Krass & Co. Bowties & Boatshoes printed shorts are officially on the market, and today we’re happy to be giving away one of the first pairs to a lucky Bows & Boats reader.
We do our best to keep up with the latest and greatest from Vineyard Vines, but with so many new items hitting the shelves what seems like every day, there have definitely been a few pieces that we’ve missed. Luckily, we didn’t miss today’s pick, a shirt that we’re really looking forward to adding to our Vineyard Vines collection. It’s their Ginger Rum Plaid Tucker Shirt.
As happy as we were to see Rory add a Claret Jug to his collection yesterday, we were pretty disappointed in what Nike had him wearing for such a big moment. We like pink as much as the next guy, but the old school Agassi-esque neon pink is probably better suited for the tennis courts. In our opinion, Peter Millar, has had the best dressed golfers on tour as of late, and they never disappoint with Brandt Snedeker’s gear. One of our favorite pairings was what he wore for his Saturday round at the US Open.
Just before this year’s MLB season kicked off, we were introduced to a company hand painting some great looking bats down in Nashville called Mitchell Bat Co. Well, their lineup has increased significantly since then, and until the end of this month you can score any of their great looking bats for $30 off of their original price. As far as we know, this is the first sale Mitchell Bat Co. has ever had, and we wouldn’t be shocked if they’re going to be few and far between.
Though they’re still a relative newcomer to the world of bowties, our friends at Bull + Moose continue to impress us with their wares. Their designs are classic, yet each of their ties is unique and different than just about anything in our collection. Today’s Bowtie Friday pick is their Olive Seersucker bow.
A couple of years back, we stumbled across the Rancourt & Co. Pinch Penny Loafers, and virtually immediately we realized there was a gap in our footwear collection that we never knew existed. At first glance, we were enamored with the Color 8 Chromexcel version that sported a honey colored sole. It’s still one of our favorites in their collection, but lately we’ve had our eye on the Natural option.
A few months back, we were introduced to Blankenship Dry Goods, and their great looking Freedom shorts. Back then, we keyed in on their fantastic seersucker collection. Today, we’re going back to Blankenship for another pair of Freedom shorts, a pair they’ve named after our hometown, Annapolis.
Over the years, we’ve amassed a handful of red pants that see a surprising amount of wear. From washed out Nantucket Reds, to a pair of Bonobos Cherry Bombs, we’re proud to wear red in all hues, and soon another pair will be added to our collection. Just yesterday, our friends at Jack Donnelly released a limited run of their Carter in Red.
When it comes to well curated collections, you’d be hard pressed to find a better site than Huckberry. Our friends out West frequently feature brands we love, and even more frequently introduce us to those that we need to learn more about. Today we’re excited to announce that one lucky Bowties & Boatshoes reader is going to win a $100 in Huckberry cash. To find out how to win, and what we would buy if we had $100 to spend, keep reading. Continue reading »
