The Lone Bellow: The Lone Bellow
I just found out yesterday that TGC friends The Lone Bellow just broke into the Billboard 200 at number 74, right below fellow Charlie Peacock-produced band The Civil Wars! Pick up their self-titled album today right here or download here.

2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA Class
Well, ain’t this something. A CLS at less than half the price! Unfortunately, there’s not much opportunity to / convenience in driving a car in Manhattan, but if I were to move to a more car-friendly city, this might very well be my pick!

Columbia at Night

Haven’t had much of a chance to put the newly-purchased Nikon D600 to use lately, so I decided to do a quick shoot at Columbia University last week, while there was still a bit of snow on the ground. Enjoy!

Ezeiza Weekender | Blue Claw Co.
Named after the airport in Buenos Aires, Argentina, the Ezeiza Weekender from Blue Claw is another example of the “Made in the USA” leather goods movement. Started a couple of years by two guys now in their mid-20s, Blue Claw Co. anticipates doing $1 million in revenue for 2013. Not too shabby!
I already have a weekender that I purchased from 3sixteen a few years back, but if I was looking for one now, the Ezeiza might very well be my first choice. You can pick one up for yourself for $375 (free shipping).

Introducing The Breitling Transocean Chronograph 38 | Hodinkee
Well, whaddaya know. Looks like Breitling is actually coming out with some more tastefully-sized watches instead of the monsters that they’re usually known for.
Fantastic retro styling, great sizing, COSC-certified chronograph movement. What’s not to love? Pick one up for $6,095.
