Folks, welcome back to another momentous Friday Read — and I truly mean “momentous,” because there’s plenty going on around these parts. For starters, there’s the deal promised in today’s headline: Filson is running a 30 percent off sale now through Sunday (an exceptionally rare occurrence), one that I talked about yesterday on the blog.
Of course, a reminder is always in order when it comes to the best menswear deals, and you’ll find plenty up for grabs right now from the legendary Pacific Northwest heritage outfitter. I can think of no better way to start the weekend than by saving on rugged Filson menswear — can you?
Well, perhaps there’s one other way I’d recommend you start the weekend: Cruise on into the days ahead with some fresh new tunes, courtesy of a new album from my favorite band: Ohio-born indie rock heroes The National. “First Two Pages of Frankenstein” is the group’s first full-length LP in four years, one I’ve been hotly anticipating for weeks on end (of course!).
I’ve talked about the band plenty on this site over the years — and you’ll surely recognize them if you follow me on Instagram. And four years ago this very weekend, I trekked out to Los Angeles to see the band play live (as good a reminder as any that I need to get back to L.A. sooner rather than later!).
In the meantime, the emotion, the passion and the introspective nature of The National helps guide me in my own life and in my many freelance writing pursuits, and for that, I’m undoubtedly grateful. I’ll even be writing up a review of The National’s new album over at Atwood Magazine this weekend, so stay tuned for my full take on what promises to be another outstanding record.
For now, I’ve got some new tunes to play, and of course, some shopping to take care of over at Filson’s Spring Sale. Stay stylish, stay plugged in and thanks for reading, my friends!
