Lately we’ve been doing our best to expand our horizons to include classic pieces that we’ve never had in our wardrobe for one reason or another.  One of the pieces we’ve been on the hunt for is a denim shirt.  Seriously.  While the fear of a Canadian tuxedo is still very real, we’ve thought for quite some time that a ‘just right’ denim shirt could be a great addition to the lineup.  The Latrobe from Hugh & Crye might just be exactly what we’ve been looking for.

Before we know it we’re actually going to have to start wearing socks again.  Other than days that required suits, we could probably count on one hand how many times we’ve worn a pair in the last three months on one hand.  One pair that we’ll definitely have in the rotation this year comes from J. McLaughlin.  How could you not love their Bow Tie socks?

This time of year we find ourselves perusing the L.L. Bean catalog over and over.  It just feels like the right thing to do as the leaves begin to change, and temperatures start to fall.  If you need a new pair or two of casual pants this season, we’d highly recommend taking a look at their Signature Washed Canvas Cloth pants.

It takes a lot for a simple logo polo to catch our attention these days, but one did just that a few months back.  The logo was a golf cart with a surf board on top, and as soon as we saw it we knew we’d have to do some research.  Turns out that the logo is from a young brand down in the Carolinas called Bald Head Blues.  Take a look at their East Beach Polo.

This weekend we got a small taste of Fall here in Annapolis.  Though temperatures will once again be in the 80s this week, we were pleased to see the mercury finally drop below 60 for the first time in what feels like forever.  There’s just something about crisp evening air that can’t be beat.  If you agree, you’re probably going to want to pick up a Kodiak Pullover from Buffalo Jackson ASAP.

It’s a day we’ll never forget.  One that we will always be able to tell you exactly where we were when we realized our great land was under attack.  September 11, 2001.  Fourteen years later it’s still hard to believe.

Today we remember those that lost their lives in the attacks, and those who ran towards the chaos instead of away in an effort to help.

Now that the unofficial last hurrah of Summer has come and gone, we’re ready for camp fires, leaves changing, and maybe even a snow shower or two.  While we’re still a few weeks, or months, from some of those, the time to start loading up on sweaters is now.  One of our favorites is the Cashmere Crewneck from Brooks Brothers.

It’s no secret that we’ve become suckers for just about anything adorned by Country Club Prep‘s mascot, Longshanks.  That little madras fox has found his way onto a number of things over the last couple of years, and today’s pick might be our favorite yet.  Yes, Longshanks has finally been immortalized on a bowtie thanks to the gang at Dogwood Black.
