Holy Grail of Work and Play Clothes
Years ago, I thought jeans were the best work clothes. I tried all different brands. They were not bad and you may swear by them now.
But as time wore on, pun intended, I started to explore other clothing options.
Not only was fit important, but utility and durability. I'd find some that were durable, but didn't fit me well. Or I'd find some great features but the clothes were made poorly.
Fast forward to Fire Hose. I've been a fan of Duluth Trading since they started in business nearly twenty years ago. I distinctly remember one of their first products, the Bucket Boss tool organizer that draped over an empty drywall bucket.
Soon Duluth Trading gravitated into work clothes.
As I type this, I'm wearing a pair of Fire Hose work pants - the heavyweight ones - and a comfortable Duluth Trading longtail t-shirt.
In the spring and fall, I love wearing the Fire Hose Flex pants.
One of my favorite things about these pants are the pockets. They're DEEP, and there are many different pockets for all my stuff. I need space for my Sog Flash II knife, my phone, my leather business card holder, my P238, my wallet and my FitBit.
They also sell great clothes for women too.
Duluth Trading has teamed up with me this week to sponsor a great game.
They are offering YOU FREE SHIPPING on any order of $50 or more.
Play the game and you'll SEE the FREE SHIPPING OFFER.
Play the game and you might WIN some amazing FREE clothes!

Model Railroaders - HELP ME!
I need your help if you're into model railroading and especially if you know anything about LARGER rolling stock.
I have quite a collection of model railroad stuff I inherited from my uncle. It's just gathering dust and I want someone else to get pleasure from it.
But I don't know WHAT I have. Click here to see just two of the giant cars I have.

That's it for this week.
