to-the-manner-born asked: The smokey pig gone? Yikes I was a big fan of their combo platter
I used to live about twenty minutes away from the Pig and went a lot. The owners closed it about two or three years ago, they were simply tired of running a restaurant. I can still picture all of the pig knickknacks throughout the store.
Anonymous asked: Duck, I need a versatile vest and am considering a fleece Patagonia or a waxed McAlister. Please advise pros/cons of the McAlister. I live in DC and my wardrobe consists mostly of khakis, cords, flannel slacks, sweaters and OCBD shirts. Along with Gucci loafers or penny loafers. Pretty trad. Your advice is appreciated being that you own a McAlister. One last question: does it smell due to the wax? My Barbour smells after being worn for the season. How do you address the smell on the McAlister?
I would get both, if you can. That being said, they are both great vests and versatile but you’ll find that the McAlister is a lot warmer and more versatile. It also feels a little more dressy… That’s not the right word but everyone has fleece. The wax on it doesn’t have the Barbour smell, but I have not had it rewaxed yet. Keep me posted on it.
Anonymous asked: Any plans on bringing the old blog format back?
I won’t be bringing any of the old posts back, but I might start writing again. I have jotted down a few ideas in the journal, but I haven’t made them more than an idea. Thanks
