The Map: Imogene + Willie, Nashville, TN.

It's always a pleasure to return to my home town and discover something new.
recently opened, Imogene + Willie is a wonderfully appointed little shop in a former filling station on 12th ave. south.
Having done the washing for Rogan at their facilities in Henderson, KY for some time, Matt and Carrie Eddmenson know denim. Their new shop stocks a few well chosen labels like RRL, A.P.C and of course Rogan, a choice selection of vintage, as well as their own denim line for him and her. 11 oz. Cone Mill selvedge denim cut handsomely for him. Chambray skirts for her as well as chambray work shirts and more to come for Fall. And it's all sewn in house, in the other half of the shop.
I made mention of Matt's bike, an affinity for fixed gears being something we evidently hold in common, which lead to him turning me onto another new Nashville gem nearby (more to come on that).
If you're in the neighborhood, ride over and say hey. And just try not to leave with something. Old or new.

One for the Road: The Baracuta ‘James’ Cycling Jacket.

Baracuta’s new fully waterproof, fully breathable jacket will keep the elements away.technically cut slightly longer arms and hem at the back, which increases dryness whilst cycling in the rain. Other practical design features, incorporated to stop the rain getting in, include The 5-point vented wing back, unique to Baracuta, which ventilates the jacket, press studs on the sleeves and waterproof zips on the front of the jacket and the pockets.

The 1915 XX501® Jean Cone Mills Collaboration is a celebration of the origins of this long term partnership. By staying true to the original fabric and fit, the rich history of this denim comes back to life.

The denim has been developed especially for Levi’s® - a lightweight 11oz denim
The 1915 fit is based on an archive jean called ‘Homer’ (named after the original owner).
It comes as a celebration package with a shoulder bag.

This shit can not be denied.
