Weekend Reading

Yikes! What a week! Honestly, I was just happy I was able to get out one post this week. My kids were off from school different days. One school recognized Columbus Day, and one Yom Kippur. I’m not sure how that worked out, but the end result was me spending two days at The Franklin Institute in one week. They both got to choose where we they wanted to spend the day with me, and they both choose the same place. I love The Franklin Institute, but seeing the same exhibits twice in one week was a bit much. I also went downtown on Tuesday to have some items altered at Suitsupply. I had recently ordered this sport coat and these trousers, and they just needed a few minor touches to finish them up. I’m relatively new to Suitsupply, but so far I have nothing but great things to say about my experiences there. I hope to try to work with them in the future. Thursday was spent writing, and Friday was reserved for some errands. Right now, it’s close to 7:00 and I’m finally getting the chance to work on this post. Luckily “Weekend…

Did you ever have one of those workouts that just messed up your brain for the rest of the day? That was me yesterday. My box programmed “Danny” for us yesterday, and it just destroyed me, even though I only went through about two and half rounds of it…

Weekend Reading

I’m really trying to figure out how many posts are actually feasible in a given week. In the perfect world that only exists in my head, I would publish five articles a week, plus a Weekend Reading on Saturdays. That doesn’t seem to be happening, and it only ends up frustrating me. There always seems to be too much going on. Like tonight, for instance. It’s 8:00 pm, and I’m just sitting down to right this now. We took the kids to a local horse show tonight for an activity. If we don’t entertain them, then they just end up destroying the house. So finding things for the kids to do has to be a priority, and I get that, but I just have to reset my expectations. I’ve also got a new iPhone 7 sitting in its box, still unopened, that I can’t wait to tear into. But first I have to do bedtime, finish this article, and get set up for tomorrow. I’m saving that new phone as a reward for finishing my work. Oh, and there’s going to be a cigar too. You’ll probably see it…

Weekend Reading

How’s post Labor Day life treating everyone? It’s seems like things suddenly got very real this week with school, work projects, soccer practices, intense workouts, and everything else that was held off during the summer. Like a boiling pot that couldn’t be contained any longer, life just had to return to productivity. Meanwhile, let’s talk about Instagram for a second. Has anyone noticed the number of people chomping at the bit for fall? I’m excited for for sweaters and boots as much as the next person, but today was ninety-five degrees. It’s not fall yet. So let’s slow down with all the layers. There’s no way wearing that could be comfortable right now. Maybe in a few weeks, but not now. (Speaking of which, keep an eye out for my Fall Essentials post on Monday) Class move here by the Nebraska football team. The beast is coming. (Less than two weeks!) Make sure you get some cologne to go with it. Brian’s breakdown of shirt collars is like his style, practically flawless. Looking forward to rocking this flannel this fall! I found some great tips here in Antonio’s…

Weekend Reading: August 27, 2016

Late post today! I wanted to work on this weekend reading compilation yesterday, but it never happened. I figured I would get some work done this morning and get it out as soon as I could. It’s surprising how much more time these posts take than one would initially think. Anyway, are you happy the F1 summer break is over? I definitely am! Spa this weekend! I understand why it’s important for everyone to have some time off, but I miss my racing weekends when it’s gone. There are some great style and grooming articles this week here, I recommend reading all of them. There are also some great end-of-summer sales going on right now. Most of my product links are sale items too. Overall, I think there’s some great stuff here this week. This breakdown of dress shirt sizing by Threadbase is the best I have come across. There’s a lot of information here! Need a cotton blazer for next summer? Grab it now! Another great breakdown here. This time it’s from Art of Manliness regarding dress shoes. Under $60 for a Brooks Brothers cotton cable knit sweater? Yes, please! Yes…

Weekend Reading: July 29, 2016

Oh man, it’s been a few weeks since I put a weekend reading together. I was having trouble finding articles which I found interesting. I‘m sure they were there, I just couldn’t see them. Then, suddenly, great reading material was everywhere! So let’s get right to this super-sized edition of Weekend Reading. I really want to commend Megan for this month’s “Letter from the Editor”. I bought these shoes this week, and haven’t stopped wearing them! Somehow I don’t see this going as planned. (Life…uh…finds a way.) I’m all about Floris lately. If you haven’t checked out “Stranger Things” on Netflix yet, I highly, highly recommend it. Did you see that Twillory added two new shirts? Purple/Blue Check and Blue Dobby. Love me some Ken Griffey Jr.! (Check out the full speech here.) I’m also completely obsessed with these shorts. They are perfect for casual days around the house. This is one of the best product reviews from Sharpologist. Some killer jeans for only $80! Never dress for others. Fall is coming. Do you have your Tabac? If you’re…

First off, happy Father’s Day to all the fathers out there! I hope you have a great weekend. I’m planning on have a very relaxing one. Some brunch, some European Grand Prix from Baku, some NBA Finals Game 7, and maybe even some time at the dog park…
