We originally posted about the Yeti Roadie 25 on June 30th of last year.  11 months later, we are yet to find a cooler that can even hold a candle to a Yeti, and with Memorial Day weekend on the horizon now is the perfect time to upgrade if you haven’t already.  Unfortunately, it appears that the Roadie 25 isn’t available in the Yeti store right now, so if you are looking for something right away, we’d recommend the Roadie 20 or the Tundra 35.

As bowtie wearers, we tend to stick out from the crowd not only on bowtie Friday’s, but pretty much every day that we tie on a bow.  That being said, we’re always looking for that one tie that will not only stand out to others, but also stand out to us when compared to the rest of our ties.  Well, this week we have managed to find another bow that is unlike anything else have hanging in the closet, the Silk Knit Striped Bowtie ($50) by Lands End Canvas.

Logo: Small Batch Apparel

This weekend, the Triple Crown will make it’s annual stop in Baltimore for the Preakness Stakes.  Though we don’t know anything about anything when it comes to horse racing, you better believe we’ll be yelling and screaming as the horses round the bend.  Whether you are a huge fan, or a bit more casual like we are, we think you’ll like the latest offerings from our friends at Small Batch Apparel.  Formerly known as Cash Robinson Clothing, Small Batch has expanded their line, and in celebration of the Preakness, they want to give one lucky Bows & Boats reader a prize pack.

It’s no secret that warm weather leads to bolder patterns and colors in most wardrobes, but that doesn’t mean you have to go crazy with your look just for the sake of doing it.  In fact, one of our favorite summer looks involves a pattern that can be worn year round, gingham.  If your gingham collection is in need of some new life, we’d recommend taking a look at the Clarendon Shirts ($135) from Sir Jack’s.

It may only be Tuesday, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t too early to start thinking about the weekend.  In fact, if we weren’t planning on watching the horses run at The Preakness, there is a good chance we’d be spending today planning a quick weekend getaway before summer travel season is in full swing.  If you have been known to get out of town on short notice, a basic duffel bag is something you should always have at the ready.  If you need a new one, we’d highly recommend taking a look at the Weekend Duffels ($120*) from Hudson Sutler.

Recently, we’ve been on the hunt for a belt versatile enough to go with everything from jeans, to khakis, to an assortment of go to hell pants and shorts that are slated to be in rotation in the next few months.  It should come as no surprise that our friend Kiel James Patrick has created a belt that fits this bill almost to a T.  His Huntsman Vineyard Wilde belt ($112) may just end up being the belt of the summer.

Saturday Reading – Web Edition Vol. 1

On May 12, 2012, in Uncategorized, by Ryan & Ben

As much as we hate to admit it, we spend far too much time in front of a computer.  From desktops at the office, to laptops at home, to iPhones and iPads just about everywhere else, we don’t even want to know how much of our day is spent staring at a glowing screen.  Of course, all of that time on the web has led us to some fantastic websites over the years.  For this edition of Saturday Reading, we’ve chosen a handful* of sites that we make sure to visit on a regular basis.

With lightweight sportcoats and seersucker suits becoming more commonplace as the weather warms up, it is only fitting that our bowtie selections follow suit.  Sure, silk bows will always manage to sneak into the rotation, but we’re making a conscious effort to work in more cotton bows than ever before.  In an effort to not completely break the bank, our first stop when looking for a few new cotton bows was The Tie Bar, and we weren’t disappointed.  One tie from their collection that will absolutely be making it’s way to Bows & Boats HQ is the Open Plaid Bow ($15).

It isn’t a secret that we are huge fans of the Skipjack Polos from Southern Tide. In fact, another one was just added to the collection last weekend thanks to a stop at Redix down in Wrightsville Beach.  If you have been trying to figure out which Skipjack Polo needs to find a place in your rotation, today is the day to make that decision.  Why?  Because our friends over at Southern Tide want to give you one.*
