Sun's Out, Guns Out

Tee Up: 5 Basic T-Shirts

There’s nothing like the old, faded out, ripped-at-the-collar t-shirt. It carries years of stories in stitches and stains. Unfortunately, you’re the only one who knows and respects that history; it just looks like a dirty t-shirt to everyone else. Save it for wing night and keep your wardrobe loaded with fresh, handsome Ts for all other occasions.

Armoring up for battle with frigid surf

Kit: Winter Surfing

When it comes time to hit the surf and temps are in the 30s rather than the 70s, the right gear is the difference between channeling Bodhi and becoming intimate with the symptoms of hypothermia. While it’s admittedly tough to be toasty in water less than half your body’s normal temperature, with the right kit you can at least pursue your hobby and live to tell about it.

John J. Bowman Single Barrel Virginia Straight Bourbon Whiskey There are many ways to honor an historic figure: bronze statues, stadium monikers, tattoos. But what could be more appropriate for a trailblazing early American pioneer than a powerful bourbon? As the great, great uncle of Abram Bowman (That’s the “A” in A. Smith Bowman), Colonel…

Essentials for the overnight

Kit: Sleeping Over

Your best side has shined brightly — maybe brighter than you ever thought possible. You’ve been entertaining and engaging, listened patiently and laughed persuasively, doted and dated your way to the final exam: sleeping over. Clearly, you’ve done something right, but the light at the end of the tunnel still beckons. Though confidence has gotten you this far, now you’ll be playing on her turf, and that requires backup. Bring these items and prepare for the best.
