Five things that have my attention this week:
1 Truman Boot Company – I recently came across these guys by accident. The Pennsylvania company does made to order boots that look to have a non-Ronald McDonald toe box. Very cool, and tons of options – including the highly desirable Dianite sole. It’s safe to say that these guys are on the list.
2. Sendero Provisions Co. Hats: The patch-front hats have been all the rage over the last year, but the Sondero folks took it to a whole new level. I want them all.
3. Abel Reels Grateful Dead Special Edition Fly Reel: Mrs. RCS have recently picked up fly fishing, taking a couple classes from Orvis, and starting to make our list of equipment so we can get going on our own. Abel is top shelf, and probably a little out of our wheelhouse, but this Grateful Dead special edition reel may make me think twice… ‘don’t you let that deal go down’…
4. ‘Narconomics’ by Tom Wainwright: It almost reads like fiction, but it’s actually a really good economics book. Needless to say the ‘business’ aspect is fascinating. Highly recommend.
5. Nike has announced that it is exiting the golf equipment business, stopping production of their clubs and balls. They will focus on apparel and footwear. Probably a smart move. Hard to say this isn’t related to Tiger Woods’ absence from the game. Where will he and Rory go?
