Several weeks ago, Matt and I were asleep but the TV was still on. We both woke up literally at the same time, startled by the musical guest on Jimmy Fallon. We said pretty much in unison, “Who in the hell is this?”
Obviously both captivated by the mesmerizing music, I woke up the next morning and immediately researched Robert Glasper Experiment. I found a bunch of his early stuff, all jazz. Then, finally found what I was looking for: his new record Black Radio. I’ve listened to his rendition of Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” about a thousand times since. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
New to the shop! These Leather Head footballs are hand-stitched and carefully constructed in the USA. Old school and built to last. Limited availability, in-store only. Please call (615) 292-5005 to order.
Wish there was just one more day in the weekend… I could really go for a party like this. Happy Monday!

Can you live without your jeans for two weeks? We’re having a “hall of fame” exhibition show in New York to share the best of the best from our customers. The more worn-in, worn-out and well-loved… the better! We’re looking for the Top 25 imogene + willie jeans to be dropped off at the shop as early as tomorrow, but the deadline is Tuesday the 17th. You only have four days! Snap a quick photo on your cell phone and send them to email@example.com for submission. Due to time constraints, locals only please. Jeans will not be returned until July 31st.
The best part? You’ll get 40% off a brand new pair of jeans!

I will never forget when my brother, Bart, came over to my apartment 15 years ago to pack my suitcase for my first work trip to Europe. He said, “Ok, this is all you are taking: 1 pair of jeans, 3 white t-shirts, my sweater, your old tennis shoes and some high heels.” After that was all in the bag, he tucked in smoked almonds mixed with dried blueberries in a Ziploc bag, 2 good reads and his personal travel diary that had been around the world with him over the past decade.
Usually girls want to dress like other girls. But I have always wanted to dress like my brother. And eat like him, think like him… be like him.
Bart has an innate gift of knowing about good stuff, usually far before a trend sets in. He doesn’t desire lots of material things, but the pieces and traditions that he incorporates into his daily life are an inspiration and indication of how to exist simply… but for sure with a hint of unique flare.
