DRINK UP! – Speakeasy by TAILGATE

Everyone has their favorite watering hole and three of ours are in NYC.  Actually had my first “legal” beer at McSorley’s.  Tailgate has a collection of great graphic t’s that feature the great drinking establishments’ logos from around the country; in the old days one would refer to their favorite bar as a Speakeasy.  If you’re not so lucky to be able to visit in person, you can look like you did.

S22 ENDORSEMENT – PERSOL

Persol comes from “per il sole” meaning “for the sun”, highlighting these iconic shades’ function of protection against the sun’s rays.  For nearly 100 years Persol has been providing great style and function in eyewear.  One of the brand’s early fans was Steve McQueen, known as an everlasting men’s style icon.  We love the retro styling of the PO0649 and the collapsible quality of the PO0714 favored by McQueen.  If that’s not enough check out many of Hollywood’s stars sporting them too; or you may say modern day icons wearing icons.
