You're a man now, dress like it pt. II

We wanted to let the shoe thing have a moment to sink in before we had a second installment. Many of you, no doubt, spent years thinking you were right that sneakers and suits actually looked good together and admitting your wrong can take a while. Now it's time to talk about your watch.
I have to give credit where it is due, you wear a watch so we're half way there already. Presumably you have places to go and at specific times no less. I know you think you have found the perfect watch that transitions from the gym to the office but you're wrong. To start with you're co-working now so you're closer than ever to your colleagues and the graphic designer next to you is complaining about the smell. Go ahead, pull your wrist up to your face, no one's looking... see. That other watch you picked up in Miami a few years ago isn't doing you any favors either. You know the one with the face that's three feet across with a tribal tattoo on the band? Yeah that one. We're actually taking bets weather you have on an Ed Hardy or Von Dutch shirt under your sweater on account of it.
We have come through for you again though. Skagen of Denmark makes sleek, sophisticated time pieces that are incredible thin and easy to wear. The woven steel and titanium bands are about the thickness of a credit card and the watch itself isn't much bigger. We have some great leather banded watches too. They all come with a limited lifetime warranty and a great watch should last you a lifetime. Best of all, they start at $100.00!

Make Your Mom Proud

We spotted one of these buttons on the artist's (Ianna Shively) husband about 6 months ago and have been begging her to make them for us ever since. Each one is painstakingly handcrafted with love here in Columbus. $22.

Spring shipments have been rolling in over the past few weeks at Tigertree. We got in some amazing new dresses from She-Bible this week. We love them not only for their clean and classic designs, but also the fact that they make every garment in their hometown of San Fransisco from 100% organic material.

Also, we realize that though it is amazing out today, the rain will be back. To that end we are providing free ugly umbrellas to our customers who ignored their moms and went outside unprepared.

Tigertree For Royal Enfield

Royal Enfield is a remarkable company. Their mission statement is probably something close to "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." Since production was moved to India from England over 50 years ago, the Bullet has been made almost the same way. The 2009's (available at Kick Start in Columbus) are apparently fuel injected and have better brakes and on and on, but apparently my 2002 Bullet:

can be raced in a pre-40's class. It may not be true, the guy that told me isn't very credible, but it sounds bad ass, and I don't see me on a race track any time soon so I'll just believe it and not attempt to verify it.
We are proud to present the first series of tee's in a hopefully long relationship with Royal Enfield. The shirts below are all based on vintage Enfield manuals and schematics. They are all 36 dollars and we will gladly ship them anywhere.

Jimi Wallets

Jimi labels their wallets as "the wallet for people who hate wallets," so it's a little ironic that a store that got their start selling wallets would pick them up but it's too good a product to pass up. These super slim wallets house all of your important cards, your id, and some cash. Okay, so you won't have all of the receipts for your last six months of gas and fast food that you swore to your accountant you would hold on to, and if you ever get around to handing them over the printing has all been rubbed off. You'll get over it.

Tigertree Turns Two

I know I am supposed to say how hard it is to believe that it's been two years, but in all sincerity if feels like ten. It's hard for me to imagine my life without Tigertree at this point though. We can't say enough how much it means to us that you all continue to come through our doors every day and let us keep doing what we love.

In addition to the huge party we're having at the store (it's actually cheap wine and mini cupcakes) we're having Basho in from Yellow Springs for the first in our 2009 Trunk Sale series.

I know you didn't quit because of the 63 cent tax hike, only someone that wouldn't want this amazing ashtray and didn't want to help pay for childrens health insurance would do that.
