We took a quick straw poll of some friends and have found that quarter zips are far more polarizing than we could have ever imagined.  We wear them year round, and there are a few new options that recently hit the market that we’d love to add to our rotation.  At the top of that list is the Cardigan Stitch Quarter Zip from Peter Millar.

With St. Patrick’s Day falling on a Monday this year, we got all of our celebrating taken care of this weekend.  Sure, we’ll still probably sip on a Guiness or some Irish Whiskey tonight, but, for the most part, it’ll be a relatively low key affair.  Of course, we’re still breaking out our favorite green gingham shirts for the occasion.  If you are lacking green in your gingham collection, or you just need some more, the Steinbeck from Mizzen + Main is the perfect pick.

With the tournament just around the corner, the bracketologists are coming out of the woodwork left and right.  We’re going to do what we always do and wing it.  We’ve found that we perform far better when we don’t try to pretend we know about teams that he had never heard of until they won an obscure conference tournament.  All that said, if your favorite team is going to the dance, you have to show your true colors.  A great way to do just that is with a pair of Gameday Dockers.  The line originally launched about six months ago, and has since grown to include ten more schools (for a total of 20), and even shorts.

Almost one year ago to the day we featured the Runwell from Shinola, a brand that was doing their best to play a part in the revitalization of Detroit.  Well, here we are a year later than they have absolutely made their mark on the Motor City.  They’ve also expanded their lineup of fantastic timepieces to include a Runwell Chrono that we’ve found ourselves gawking over pretty frequently as of late.

We’re pretty big fans of chambray shirts.  From super lightweight options in the Summer, to heavier choices in the Fall and Winter, we wear them all year round.  Until now, all of the chambray shirts in our rotation have either been a shade of blue or red, none had a pattern.  That’s all about to change thanks to the Plaid Chambray Shirt from L.L. Bean Signature.

If you are planning on celebrating St. Patrick’s Day next Monday, the time to start thinking about what to wear is now.  Yes, we realize a week in advance might be a bit of overkill, but you don’t want to be the guy wearing the wrinkled green t-shirt that’s been shoved in the back of your drawer since your scramble to find something to wear last year.  Thanks to our friends at Smathers & Branson, two lucky Bows & Boats readers definitely aren’t going to be left wondering what to wear next Monday.
