LC SMITH 16 GAUGE

WHEN I WAS FILMING MY SHOW ALTERNATE ROUTE IN EASTON, MARYLAND AT ALBRIGHT'S GUN SHOP - I SPOTTED THIS BEAUTY. OF COURSE I HAD TO BUY IT. THE GUYS THREW IN THE GUN SMITHING (THANKS ALEX) AND A YEAR LATER IT NOW RESTS COMFORTABLY IN THE GUN SAFE WAITING TO FOR THE NEXT WING SHOOT.

ENDORSEMENT: GOODLIFE CLOTHING


NOT ALL T-SHIRTS ARE CREATED EQUAL. THESE GOODLIFE CLOTHING T'S ARE GREAT. MADE IN USA, SUPER FIT OF REALLY NICE COTTON AND SIMPLE COLORS. I REALLY LIKE THE NAVY AND I'M PARTIAL TO THE V NECKS AND HENLEY'S. THE SWEAT PANTS ARE OF A REALLY NICE LOOM THAT I HAVE BEEN LIVING IN FOR LATE NIGHT LOUNGING. I DISCOVERED THESE GUYS VIA INSTAGRAM (GOODLIFE_CLOTHING) AND REALLY DIG THEIR INSPIRATIONS AND AESTHETICS.

THE SAFARI JACKET


WITH SPRING CLOSING IN (I HOPE) I AM CHANNELLING MY INNER FOREIGN CORRESPONDENT/MILITARY COMMANDER/WHITE HUNTER AND CONSIDERING THE SAFARI JACKET AS A PART OF THAT SPRING OUTERWEAR SOLUTION. IT LOOKS GREAT FROM FEILD TO COCKTAILS (ADD KNIT TIE HERE OR ROLL AND BUTTON THE SLEEVES UP WHEN THINGS HEAT UP). YOU CAN'T GET MORE AUTHENTIC THAN THE BERETTA SAFARI KACKET, BUILT SPECIFIC FOR ALL OF THE ABOVE MENTIONED AND STILL EASILY TRANSLATES TO AN URBAN LIFESTYLE.

ULTIMATE ASADO ARSENAL

TIPILIUKE LODGE HAD A REALLY GREAT LITTLE GIFT SHOP WITH THESE AMAZING HAND MADE GAUCHO KNIFES. THE HANDLES ARE MADE FROM THE RED STAG HORN OFF THE PROPERTY AND THE DETAILS ON THE HANDLE AND SCABBARD ARE IN STERLING SILVER.  
BBQ TOOLS WITH STAG HANDLES
FROM THE LOCAL GAUCHO SHOP
(FARM SHOP/HARDWARE STORE)

THIS IS BY FAR IS ONE OF THE BEST BBQ INVENTIONS I HAVE SCENE. IT WAS PROBABLY CONCEIVED BY SOME DUDE WHO WAS SICK OF PUSHING OFF DOZENS OF SAUSAGES AND CHORIZO FROM HIS BBQ FORK. I JUST THINK THIS THING IS GENIUS.
THE TRIGGER MECHANISM...
THAT PUSHES THE PLATE FORWARD AND THE SAUSAGE OFF THE FORK.

GOKEYS FIND

I CONFESS I HAVE A LOT OF BAGS. (TOTES, SHOULDER BAGS, DUFFLES) BUT I COULD NOT RESIST THIS VINTAGE GOKEYS SHOULDER BAG WHEN I SPOTTED IT. SO, I CONSULTED WITH MY BUDDY (ALSO A BAG DUDE-DESIGNER ACTUALLY) IF I HAD A PROBLEM WITH TOO MANY BAGS AND THAT I WANTED TO ADD THIS TO MY COLLECTION. HE SAID WELL, YES YOU DO HAVE A PROBLEM BUT THAT SHOULDER BAG IS PRETTY SPECIAL. WELL IT IS MINE NOW AND IT IS GOING TO HOLD MY CAMERAS.

OXXFORD JOURNEY COMPLETE

WHEN I VISITED OXXFORD IN CHICAGO (FOR MY ESQUIRE SHOW ALTERNATE ROUTE) THEY WERE KIND ENOUGH TO BUILD ME THIS JACKET FROM SOME BEAUTIFUL DEAD STOCK FABRIC THEY HAD. WELL AFTER SOME TWEEKS AND TIME IT IS HERE. I HAVE BEEN WEARING IT REGULARLY AND BREAKING THE OLD BOY IN. IT IS DEFINITELY THE ARGUMENT FOR BESPOKE. IT FITS AND LOOKS GREAT.
SEE THE WHOLE JOURNEY HERE.
