I really enjoy the outdoors, especially during the Fall. I can”t wait for the temperature to drop just a bit so I can break out my heavier clothing. When I saw the items from Tom Beckbe I knew I wanted to bring them to your attention. The product line is geared towards hunters, but these garments and bags have a very multi-purpose feel to them.The Tensaw jacket features a waxed shelter cloth shell, a corduroy-lined collar for warmth and – really nice touch – a cotton twill lining dyed in Alabama red clay.Not terribly cold out but you need a little protection and some storage pockets? The Kinsman vest has you covered.Looking for a durable duffle to carry your gear? Check out the Canvas Weekender. The bag is made from waxed army duck canvas and features Horween leather trim. It is also has a waterproof liner.If waxed canvas isn’t your thing, you can opt for this beautiful Horween leather Weekender bag that will patina beautifully with age.
What could be better on a Fall day than a flannel shirt or a good-looking lightweight jacket? How about combining them both? That’s what Flint and Tinder has done with their Flannel Lined Trucker Jacket.

I stepped outside this morning to walk the dog and realized something: it’s getting cool out there! The day has come when I’m going to need something a little more substantial than a long sleeve shirt. Then, with perfect timing, we received an American Giant Catalog in this afternoon’s mail and I was immediately drawn to the canvas jackets for him and her.The Mechanics Jacket and Utility Shell are both made from a heavy duty water resistant canvas. The men’s jacket is partially lined while the women’s isn’t.Both the men’s and women’s jackets comes in two colors; Cargo Green and Raven Black. The women’s jacket features an A-Line silhouette while the men’s jacket features elasticized shoulder gussets which allows for greater freedom of movement.Finally, the men’s jacket also features a waist adjustment if you like a slimmer fit.
