High Five: January 25th

Five things that have my attention right now…

1. Filson’s limited edition “Smoke Grey”(?).  You all know what a big Filson fan I am, and seeing this Smoke Grey padded computer bag has peaked my interest.  Anyone have any info?  The only place I can find them is on Ebay…

2. For the first time, old albums have outsold new albums (article link).  Honestly, this comes as no surprise to me.  Streaming has completely changed the game, but the quality of music must have something to do with it…  Hey – you can still stream on old-school (looking) speakers

3.  These Bally single-monk strap oxfords just make me break my double-monk-only habit.  How great do these look?  The detailing looks great, and may fit in just right with my new jeans-approved dress code (more on that later)…

4. Patagonia Stand Up Shorts (the best shorts ever made) in a new color called ‘Catalyst Blue’.  Sign me up.  And yes, I’m ready for warmer weather to get here…break these bad boys out with a pair of Havaiana’s.  Bring it.

5. Jason Dufner.  On the rocks.  Outstanding.

    That has to be some sort of only in Japan sort of thing. Seems like Filson has done this before with other collaborations.

    What makes the Patagonia shorts so great? I like the look of the front, and the fact that they’re available in 5″, but the seams in the back kind of turn me off, IMO gives it kind of a cargo pants kind of look. Have you ever tried the LL Bean Double L shorts? Available in 6″, stain and wrinkle resistant. I’m a big fan.

    @Jeffre – might be…I might reach out to Filson and see what they say.

    @James – Honesty, I really like the fit and the fabric. The fit includes a little bit baggier leg opening which I really like, and the fabric is a really great canvas that breaks in nicely over time. I haven’t tried the Bean Double L shorts – I’ll give them a look.
