You’ll never make it out alive.

It’s 8 o’clock on a Saturday night and I’m contemplating whether or not I should get my shit packed and head to Louisville on Monday for SSCXWC.  Probably not a great idea, which likely means I’ll be there- Hodala willing. They have bourbon there, right?

Much to well dressed bloggers dismay, beer will likely be spewn.  Like my mom always said “Sometimes you just gotta be a man and shit in your pants.”

Here’s some Playmobil toys riding bikes.

The Men’s Riding Coat.

Fall is here, and though some places are still sunny and 70, winter is coming. The folks at Hub and Bespoke in Seattle have been working on a Men’s Riding Jacket for a while now, and you have one week left to get involved and help get it off the ground.

They’ve designed the jacket with a classic double breasted pea coat in mind, with waterproof fabric and a cycling cut.  It’s made in Seattle, has some reflective touches and has venting to keep you, uh… vented.

It’s classier than a garbage bag with a couple holes in it, and will likely work better.

To get the production going, it takes money.  Like $15,000.  But don’t sweat it- you don’t need to cut down your money tree for this jacket to become a reality.  You can get on board for a little as $9.  And you’ll get some stuff!  As of today, it’s almost 25% funded.  So head on over to the Crowd Funding site HERE and make it happen.
