Given the field that I have chosen, I don’t really get ‘dressed up’ too much. When I do, I relish the chance to get to wear my grandfathers old tie clip that was handed down to me after he passed away. I have no idea of its origin and significance to him personally, but to me it has become a small reminder of how to be a true man’s man. He was a man from a different kind of generation; one of war veterans and polite, honest hard workers who helped build our country to what it is today. He wore this tie clip with his suit some days, would paint houses on others, and even pump oil a few afternoons a week to support his family. When I put this tie clip on with my suit, I don’t need to feel like JFK or Don Draper, I get to feel like my grandfather who is my real life inspiration.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
