On the coast of South Carolina, just about an hour south of Myrtle Beach, you’ll find a sleepy island called Pawleys.  They have a great little tavern, and not much more.  In other words, it’s a perfect place to go and recharge the batteries for a few days.  Of course, for a few days on the coast a proper pair of sunglasses is a necessity, and for those low key trips you can’t go wrong with a pair of Costa Pawleys.

Players Shirts by Criquet

Guys, we need to have a talk.  We’re the first to admit that there are times and places that peacocking is okay, and we’ve definitely been known to take a few liberties with our attire on the golf course from time to time, but the amount of people we saw who thought they were Rickie Fowler on the course yesterday was absolutely absurd.  It’s time to retire the flat brims and ridiculous color combinations fellas.  If you must include some bright colors on the course, we’d recommend doing it like Rory and limiting the neon to one piece.  For us, we’re once again turning to our friends at Criquet Shirts for most of our rounds this year.  Seriously, their Players Polos are downright awesome.

For quite some time, we stayed away from Chubbies.  We thought they were too short for regular wear, and decided it was best to avoid the temptation of trying them out.  Well, we finally took the plunge a couple of years ago and haven’t looked back since.  If you’re still on the fence about that 5.5″ inseam but want to add some Chubbies awesomeness to your closet, you’re in luck.  Just this weekend they unveiled the Tall Boys.

After a week away, we’re back for Bowtie Friday.  Now that it feels like Summer is here to stay (yes we know it technically isn’t here yet), we’re breaking out lightweight bows as often as possible.  We’re also adding more and more color with each passing today.  Today’s pick brings both to the table, it’s the 1970s Multicolor Plaid Bow from Mill City Fineries.

Pop Up Alert: Ledbury x Cole Haan SoHo

Whenever we visit New York City, we find ourselves spending at least a few hours wandering through SoHo and drifting in and out of all of the fantastic stores.  On our last trip, we stopped in to Cole Haan‘s SoHo outpost and left very impressed.  Apparently we aren’t the only ones who have been impressed by the store, because our friends at Ledbury are setting up shop there through Sunday to help launch their new Made to Measure  program.

iPhone Cases by Smathers & Branson

Over the years, Smathers & Branson has done an absolutely fantastic job expanding their collection.  Of course, their belts will always be the flagship of the collection, but, as much as we’d like to, you can’t wear one every single day.  You can, however, work one of their new iPhone cases into your everyday carry setup.

Happy Cinco De Mayo, friends!  If you’re like us, you’ve been sucked into the novelty of the day and will probably be a couple of appropriately themed beverages.  For us, that means Lageritas.  We’ve made a few variations of this drink over the years, but the guys at Mason Shaker really nailed it.

For many, this weekend will mark the beginning of a season full of Summer adventures.  Whether you’re roughing it in the mountains, or blowing it out in South Beach, you’re going to need a solid duffel to get you where you’re going.  In our opinion, you’ll never go wrong with a bag from our buddies at Hudson Sutler, one of our favorites is their new Sconset.
