We like to wear clothes.

Back when I lived in Texas, I had a friend that (for whatever reason) looooooved this cartoon that was around for approximately one (maybe two) season(s). But it [obviously] stuck with him from childhood well into adulthood.

So now that we’ve discussed the power of Hawk, Wolf, Puma, and Bear, let’s talk about clever advertising and promos that stick with you (which includes jingles). I’m a BIG FAN. Chick-Fil-A and their cows? I still remember driving (many many many years ago) on the highway with Mom and we literally stopped on the shoulder so we could take a picture of one of their billboards. That kind of advertising is good. You remember it. And it makes you laugh.

Here’s another one: Duluth Trading Company. You’ve probably seen their commercials… like this?

But then they also release things like this that are incredible. Flannual_Report_2014

AMAZING. But what’s even better than clever advertising is products that actually deliver. Again, like Chick-Fil-A. And Duluth. They promise to be basically indestructible, well-made, and kind of amazing. Lucky for us, they sent us some of their clothes to test out. They offered me some pants, but, well… pants that are not stretchy pants are not friends with me right now. Their flannels, though? AMAZING. Even when stretched to the limit. Bump Hiding Duluth_HouseofGold(This is the Women’s Crosscut Performance Flannel Shirt and I’m going to be super-sad when it no longer buttons.)

Every time J puts his Duluth outfit on, he goes bananas. “THESE PANTS ARE AMAZING.” (He received a pair of the Fire Hose Work Pants. They’re life-changing for him.) Or when I pointed out that his flannel shirt has these little expando vents on the back, allowing for airflow? “OMG NO WAY”. (He’s wearing the Men’s Crosscut Performance Flannel Shirt. *Twinsies*) I mean, he kind of basically said that. So, in case you were wondering… here’s what we think they’re good for:

Driving a truck?

Driving Truck Duluth_HouseofGoldYep.

Shopping for lumber (for your hallway closet reno project that is taking entirely too long) at The Big Orange?  Home Depot Duluth_HouseofGoldYep.

Hauling (and spreading) grass seed?

Seeding Yard Duluth_HouseofGoldObvs.

Stacking an entire cord of Firewood?

Stacking Wood Duluth_HouseofGoldC’mon. Of course.

He wears these when he goes hunting for Trouts (some might call this “fishing”), when he’s at a couple of properties he’s been working on flipping, and basically when he’s busy being all kinds of manly. The pants aren’t exactly lounge pants, so it’s not quite recommended to wear them whilst watching football. Unless, of course, you’re smoking meat on the Big Green Egg and watching the game on the back deck. And in that case, yes. Absolutely. Wear the pants.

So go check out some more of Duluth’s awesome gear! They have some incredible bags, and tons of other wearables. We’re big fans.

  1. I can only imagine the excitement when the air flow vents were found. Wowzers. Also, a 2 year old hulk hogan came to our house for halloween. Yellow felt mustache for the win.
