Who Ever Said Outdoorsfolk Aren't Fashionistas?

Read an interesting article on the Wall Street Journal website yesterday.  Ok, maybe I didn’t read the entire thing, but in my opinion skimming a few paragraphs and looking at the pictures qualifies something as “read” in today’s age of electronic information overload.

Seems that many designers are borrowing liberally from the outdoors set for the latest in high fashion. That’s a relief to me considering my new favorite fly fishing bag could basically be considered a “man purse.”

So that’s right everyone, ditch those skinny jeans and break out your red & black flannel shirts (aka Pennsylvania Tuxedos) and your old pair of Irish Setter boots.  Maybe even accessorize your ensemble with a fly fishing lanyard or coonskin cap – and wear them proudly.

Wear them to work, a fancy restaurant, wherever & whenever – because guess what my friends, you’re now cutting edge.  That $2,000 Armani suit in your closet is so last year.  Cabela’s is where it’s at.
