COTE DE TEXAS: FATHER’S DAY GIFT PICKS BY MR. SLIPPERSOCKSMAN! OY!!!

FATHER’S DAY GIFT PICKS BY MR. SLIPPERSOCKSMAN! OY!!!


I politely asked Ben to help me pick out a few items for Father’s Day.  After twelve hours or more of him breathing down my neck, correcting everything I wrote, and just being down right irritating – I was thinking I should have just conquered this myself!!   By the time it was all over he was mumbling something about writing a book!!!  Such an ego!!!! 

Here are his picks – mostly.  I have a few picks myself.  He is very invested in knowing if y’all will think he came up with great ideas.  Needless to say, he certainly thinks so!!!

And away we go!!!!



BARBOUR WINDBREAKER & WATERPROOF.  BARBOUR IS A HOT BRAND HERE, BUT A CLASSIC FROM SCOTLAND.

Actually, this would be good year round.


HERE



SEAVEES MARINER’S BOOT

Ben bought these and he lives in them.  A cross between a desert boot and a sneaker.   They comes in three different  shades.

HERE


FILSON SMALL DUFFLE BAG HERE

AND




MEDIUM DUFFLE BAG HERE


These also come in different shades, but Ben likes these shades.






KNIFE – WINKLER HUNTING KNIFE WINS MR. SLIPPERSOCKSMAN’S EXPRESS APPROVAL.

It comes with a brown leather sheath and a maple wood handle.  It’s really good looking for a rustic knife.


 HERE. 




LEATHERMAN SURGE MULTITOOL, 21 DIFFERENT TOOLS.


 HERE





RALPH LAUREN CABLE KNIT CASHMERE SWEATERS IN 22 COLORS – THESE ARE GREAT FOR SUMMER!

Guess whose pick these are?   LOL!

THE BEST BELT FOR ANY MAN OUT THERE.  SUCH A CLASSIC.  THIS IS A PERFECT FATHER’S DAY GIFT. 


HERE



THE REAL ALLIGATOR BELT, ABOVE, IS EXPENSIVE BUT WORTH IT.  IT WILL LAST FOR A LONG, LONG TIME. IF YOU DON’T WANT TO SPEND THE MONEY, THIS FAUX BELT IS A GREAT COMPROMISE.  I ESPECIALLY LOVE THE SILVER TIP:    HERE




YETI HOPPER TWO COOLER.

BIRDWELL BEACH BRITCHES SWEATER.   BEN AND I BOTH HAVE THIS SWEATER!!  WE LIKE IT!  HERE

IT WOULD LOOK SO CUTE WITH KHAKIS AND SHORTS.


AND HERE IS A PICK OF BEN’S:

THE ORIGINAL STEVE MCQUEEN FOLDABLE SUNGLASSES.  MCQUEEN IS AN IDOL OF BEN’S AND HE THINKS HE WOULD LOOK GREAT IN MCQUEEN’S SUNGLASSES.  HE PROBABLY WOULD!!  HERE


HEIGHT OF CHIC – WOOD HANDLE, FOLDABLE UMBRELLA HERE


ALEXANDER MCQUEEN SOCKS, COMES IN ALL COLORS HERE


GORGEOUS RALPH LAUREN TIES.  GORGEOUS.  HERE.


RALPH LAUREN GOLF CLOTHES HERE


COLLECTION OF TORTOISE SHELL FRAMES FOR THE OFFICE OR HOME.  HERE

We have flashlights in every drawer in the house, it seems.  Plus batteries.  We are always hurricane ready.  This is a favorite flashlight of Ben’s.   I really couldn’t care less.  This is truly a man’s world. HERE


BIRDWELL BEACH BRITCHES – ANOTHER FAVORITE OF BEN’S.  HE JUST TOLD ME  HE WISHES HE HAD   HAD THESE CORDOUROY SHORTS HE JUST SAID!!!  HERE






Fab Backpack for family trips or hikes.  Mystery Ranch Urban Assault Backpack.  HERE




The newest book by historian Stephen Harrigan.   This is a pre-order promise or an early Christmas present.  OK.  I’m laughing right now.  It’s 3:40 AM and Ben is hanging over my shoulder critiquing every word I write.

He says I should say:

“Larry McMurtry and Dan Rather say this book is destined to become a classic on Texas history.” 

Whew!!!  Ben just pronounced this good!!!

PREORDER HERE


I HOPE YOU AND YOURS HAVE A WONDERFUL FATHER’S DAY!!!

    1. Well, lets see - if you want to talk about knives, watches, history, books, fossils, maps, stones = he's your man. Wow. He really is pretty interesting!!!! Honestly, he does have a wide range of interests - especially if it involves Texas, UT Football, and WWII.

  11. Join the "Don't Marry Movement". There are 3 main points:

    -Never legally marry an American woman
    -Never have children with an American woman
    -If you are married to an American woman, never buy a house so she cannot steal it from you in divorce

  14. I couldn't see that Harrison's book would be available in electronic format :(

    Also, has Ben read T R. Fehrenbach? He wrote sn excellent history of Texas, Lone Star, and a classic history of Mexico, Fire and Blood - both now available on Kindle. Fehrenbach was a professor at UT until he retired. He is gone now, but his books continue.

  15. I'm not sure if they fit a big or little head. LOL. Ben has a small head. I never knew about those glasses. He loves Steve McQueen though.

  16. Joni, this question has nothing to do with Father's Day. Well, maybe it does if a clean, fresh smelling house is important for this special day! You recommended a carpet cleaner in a previous post that was excellent for pet stains, etc. I purchased it, used it, and discarded the container when it was empty. Would you share the brand name again? Many thanks!

  17. Wish you could do less expensive items sometimes. From one older person who had the necessity to 'size down' to another, some of us have had to cut back more than others I guess. (I see that you buy some of these things you are promoting.) Good for you. In the mean time, personally I'd rather put any extra funds I have away for any unforeseen circumstances that may arise rather than trying to shop fancy. Then when I do need something, I shop at places like Ross and T.J. Maxx where I can pick up some of the very same name brands at very low prices. I'd highly recommend cutting back and saving; it's a very satisfying feeling. Most of us have way more than we need anyway.

  19. I just can't. $400.00 sweater, $400.00 belt. $500.00 cufflinks, and a $400.00 pre-scruffed/aged hunting knife (so you can look like you've actually used it, I guess) This whole post must be some kind of a joke.

    1. Oh, and a pair of $85.00 skull socks from Barney's...Ha, ha, ha!
      Good one!

    2. OK OK - about the costs - Ben picked these out. Maybe he has expensive taste. I don't know. When I was posting them, I felt - well - they are a gift. On my sidebar - I always try to find reasonable things, but I felt this was a gift. I'm surprised at how much fun Ben had putting the list together. He reads to get his mind off his pain and he likes to pretend shop online. I've decided to open a Ben's Den on the sidebar and showcase his picks and men's things. Maybe. I'm thinking about it. But I can't swear he will only choose inexpensive things. He really had so much fun, I hate that he is getting any negative feedback. No one has to buy anything. Just enjoy looking!!!

    3. I never knew a straight guy that pretend shopped unless it was for a fancy car, but it does sounds cute.
