500 Days


There is barely anything that can be said about Matt & Carrie Eddmenson's love for denim that hasn't already been said a thousand times. And the fact that they make the most incredible, perfect fitting, perfect wearing jeans around (as everyone who has bought and worn-in a pair will tell you) is a testament to that love.

Simply put, my Imogene+Willie Barton Rigid jeans HAVE become, in the last 500 days, my second skin. In those 500 days since Carrie measured/fit myself in the I+W pop-up shop at El Cosmico in Marfa, Texas, I have worn them every single day. In that time, the 29" waist X 32" length (rolled up several times to create a two inch cuff) jean has been through one wash and two soaks in Dr. Bronners Magic Soap. They have taken on an amazing color transformation. Every bend I've made, every spot that has been touched over and over, every time my wallet, notebook, keys and bandana has been put in and taken out of the back pockets, every time I've sat and crossed my legs has left a mark, a mold, a perfect variety of indigo shades.

I met Matt and Carrie shortly after they opened I+W four years ago in Nashville. Before then I held true to Levi's 501's, which I still love dearly. But there was one thing about Barton, and the rest of the I+W denim line that drew me in - it's simple, classic design. Wearing a jean with no leather patch and no stitch markings on the back pockets really made them feel more personal for some reason. There was no pretense to them, I could wear them and make them my own - which I have for the past 500 days.

I keep finding myself about to order another pair, but I just can't imagine taking this pair off and starting new. I would feel like I was betraying something that has become a part of me. This may be the biggest problem Matt & Carrie have created. Their love for their jeans is passed on to you once you put on a pair, and that love becomes worn into your soul.

Scout founder/creative director Ben Masters explains:
"The first place I remember camping was my backyard, in my dad’s old tent. It was a red pup tent made from ripstop nylon and aluminum poles. I spent a lot of time in it as a kid, and I ended up spending a lot of nights under the stars and around campfires and learned how to be pretty resourceful in the outdoors as a Boy Scout. I often look back on that time in the wilderness and wonder how it influenced my character – I think I was better for it. For all the skills and life lessons I learned out there, what calls me back to the outdoors is a sense of awe for the beautiful things out there and a sense of wonder and mystery for the things I cannot see or control or predict.

Out there one comes face to face with the infinite and can perhaps start to glean some sense of place in the universe. There, we can perceive our size in relation to a starry night sky, or a mountain and know that we are small and young creatures standing at the foot of an epic world. It can be a pretty humbling experience and has been shared by many a man and woman throughout time. It can change the way you think about things if you let it.

I moved from Florida to Seattle a ways back and came to experience nature in an entirely new way. Washington State has the ability to inspire a reverence for the outdoors with its Cascade and Olympic mountain ranges, the Puget Sound, high deserts and rain forests all of which can be accessed from the metropolis and cultural hub that is Seattle. In this incredible setting Scout was conceived as a brand unlike others in it’s uncompromising view on creating outdoor goods in the US that are as beautiful and inspiring as they are functional, simple to use, and relevant to today’s outdoor enthusiast."



I have never found a companion that was so companionable as solitude.

Red, White & Blue Friday


Black Friday has come to mean one thing for my brother and I - Leave the city behind, head out to the log cabin deep in the Big Thicket and leave the crazy shopping crowds to our families. Gather and chop wood, long walks through the forest, refuel and plan the year ahead.
