A new gig, new responsibilities. Thanks for reading and I'll see you all in a few.

I've been thinking about The Natural a lot lately. With Redford, "wonderboy" and some epic one-liners, it may be the perfect baseball movie. My brother loved it so much that my mother actually hand-made him the Knights' jacket one Christmas.
When I saw this over at J.Crew I forwarded it to him immediately. I have to admit I was impressed. They've been doing a few decent collabs lately, but Hobbs' NY Knights? That is just too good. However, more research led to the fact that this isn't a collaboration at all. J. Crew is just buying hats from the Ebbets Field Flannels line and charging a premium for them. Buy it direct from EFF for $20 where the crew's one will run you $40. Heck, EFF can set you up with Roy's jersey and my brother's jacket too. I wonder what J. Crew's mark up would be for those...

Tintin's skiers have got me on the trail. These are pretty great but the price tag and lack of school/regiment affiliation are prohibitive. If I could find a pair in cardinal and gold around $100 clams I would be set. SC kids thought I belonged in an institution when I used to show up to football games in a button down and school repp tie. Can you imagine how they'd respond to these?
