Brooks Koepka finally kisses Jena Sims after PGA Championship win

Brooks Koepka got his championship and Jena Sims got her kiss. Koepka, who twice shutdown his girlfriend’s attempts at a smooch before the final round of the PGA Championship, won the event – after a little bit of on-course drama – at Bethpage Black on Sunday. Once Koepka finished off shooting 8-under for the tournament…

Steal Alert: Select Made in the USA Brooks Brothers Suits for $360

Brooks Brothers: Select 1818 Suits – $ 359.40 ($ 1198)

Made in the USA. Italian fabrics. Hand-sewn armholes. Half-canvas construction. And they aren’t final sale (as long as you don’t have the pants hemmed/tailored before they leave the warehouse) so you can return them.

And they’re now going for just sixty bucks more than a fused J. Crew Factory Thompson?

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I’m a bit flabbergasted on this one. In a good way though. Sure, it’s a relatively small selection of styles. And it’s lots of plaids and stripes. But that’s easy to tone down with a solid shirt and knit tie (or, no tie.)

A few of the Regent Fit, Made in the USA suits going for $ 360 today.

You’re looking for the 1818 suits here. Those are the Italian wool / Made in the USA line. The BrooksCool line is cheaper and not as well made. Lots of Regent fit available, which fits like a Spier and Mackay contemporary fit. Milano fits are the Brooks Brothers true slim.

Pretty good size selection at post time. Flash sale prices end today, 2/12/19. Big thanks to Grant M. for the tip.

That’s all. Carry on.

Tuesday Sales Tripod – Extra 25% off Brooks Brothers Sale, English Made shoes, & More

The Thursday Handfuls are great, but what if Monday (or Tuesday) rolls around and there are a few sales that can’t wait til the weekend? You’ll find three of the best, with a few picks from each, to start the week below.

 

#1. Brooks Brothers: Extra 25% off Clearance Items

Brooks Brothers

Hot dog, it’s sportcoat-huntin’ season. Couple of knit options up there, but some standard wool hopsacks as well. Of course, there’s plenty more to the Brooks Brothers sale section, but sportcoats that are on sale, and then get another cut are always a solid bet from BB.

 

#2. Massdrop: Made in the UK Loake Cap Toes – $ 224.99 FINAL ($ 360)

Made in the UK Loake Cap Toes

Goodyear welted, Made in the UK, and your choice of either a smooth leather sole, or a studded dainite sole for grip. At checkout, it’s your choice between black shoes with leather or Dainite soles, the dark brown shoes with leather or Dainite soles, or the mahogany shoes with leather soles. It IS UK sizing though. So, most are gonna wanna size down a full size. Just be careful with that.

 

#3. Banana Republic: Extra 50% off Sale Items + 40% off no BR Merch Exclusions

Banana Republic

Still going strong. Holy cow there’s a lot in there. Welcome to end of season winter clearance. Items are coming and going. Big fan of that Motion-Stretch cotton blend blazer, and the leather laptop sleeves are pretty nice too. Sizes are scattered, but picks above had at least a decent size selection at post time.

 

BONUS  Allen Edmonds: Extra 30% off Factory 2nds

Allen Edmonds

These aren’t without risk. Hardly. In fact, it’s a gamble. $ 25 restocking fee on any returns through the mail. And it’s a little concerning that AE is now saying that after this extra 30% off deal, Factory 2nds will only be available for limited times moving forward? The hell does that mean? That just plays into the #narrative that the #menswear internet community (by the way I hate hashtags but I’m using them as descriptors here) is pushing that overall quality by AE is dropping. So no more 2nds / Shoebank open at all times? Does that mean they’re loosening standards on what makes a first quality shoe? Whether that’s true or not seems to be less relevant than ever. If they don’t think customers who pay any attention aren’t asking that question, they’re seriously underestimating the chatter that goes on around them.

 

Also worth a mention…

  • J. Crew: Extra 60% off sale (almost all final sale?) w/ GOFORIT
  • EXPRESS: Extra 50% off clearance.
  • Club Monaco: Extra 40% off sale items.
  • Lands’ End: 50% off one full price item w/ SCARF and 8794
  • Ledbury: Extra 40% off Sale items w/ FINAL40

Oakland Mayor Candidate, Cat Brooks, On the Issues

Cat Brooks is gearing up for one of the biggest moments of her life—a race to become the new mayor in Oakland, California.

“I’m running because the people — hundreds of Oaklanders — asked me to,” said Brooks. “I am deeply concerned about the direction in which our city is headed. As the recent Equity Indicators Report demonstrates, Oakland is failing to provide all of our community members with equitable opportunities to live, work, and thrive in Oakland. It’s time to elect politicians who are truly invested in a better future for the people of Oakland, and are willing to do the work to get us there.”

Currently, Brooks serves as the executive director and co-founder of the Justice Teams Network, a network of grassroots activists providing rapid response and healing justice in response to all forms of state violence across California. She’s also the co-founder of the Anti Police-Terror Project, an organizer, and proud resident of Oakland, California. Additionally, she’s served as executive director for both Youth Together and the National Lawyers Guild.

“I am most proud of the work we have done with families who are survivors of state violence and the development of the APTP First Responders Guide that trains communities to rapidly respond to incidents of police violence,” said Brooks. “It also trains organizers how to support families through the process of fighting for justice and rebuilding their lives. This model is currently being replicated across the country and parts of Canada.”

Recently, she left her position as co-host of KPFA radio’s morning show “Upfront” to run for mayor. In this interview, she shares her plans to uplift and transform the city of Oakland.

Black Enterprise: Across the US there is a lot of voter distrust of government and election security. What would you say to the person who’s reluctant to vote?

Cat Brooks: I would tell a person who’s reluctant to vote that I understand. People in the United States, and in Oakland, in particular, have worked with very few politicians who truly represent their interests within city government. So it would be rational for them to assume that this election is no different, and to stay home from the polls.

Our campaign is trying to create an environment in which politicians are held accountable — and that starts with us. We have been working to establish a political platform that reflects the wants and needs of the people of Oakland.

With respects to our judicial system, 45’s [President Trump] work has not been exclusively at the Supreme Court level. He has packed lower courts with judges who support his views and agenda. Strong city governments must not be afraid to litigate on behalf of themselves and their people. When 45’s judges come after unions, sanctuary, people of color, the LGBTQ community, and/or others, cities must invest in protecting those who are made vulnerable.

When it comes to each of the issues on your political platform, what are the changes you’d like to see and how specifically are you working to make those changes?

Housing is my number one priority and in the first 100 days of my administration. I want to get the 6,000 homeless people sleeping on our streets into shelters and beds. We can ramp up for a natural disaster, and make no mistake, this is a disaster that the UN just called ‘cruel and inhumane.’ So we will open up city buildings and public lands to provide safe, dignified shelter — first and foremost — while we do the long-term work of building the housing our population needs.

I want to zero in on partnerships that create wrap-around services for students and their families, including quality after-school and job training programs and programming that would create full-service community hubs through city social services and nonprofit organizations. Schools can and should be open seven days a week, offering support with things like adult education, conflict resolution, substance abuse counseling, and more. This takes the pressure off of teachers to solve every single social ill and allows them to focus on what we want them to do best: teach.

It is critical that Oakland better support small businesses and ensures equity. I want to create one-stop shops for all permitting and zones that limit big chain stores from displacing our small mom and-pops. I want to build partnerships with our community Colleges — such as Laney and Merritt — to create technical assistance for small businesses, particularly in East Oakland, where we need to ensure economic development without displacement.

Our City spends more money on overtime pay for police officers than it does on preparing our children for successful and thriving lives from day one. As Mayor, I will conduct a complete audit of the Oakland Police Department to determine how more than $ 271 million of the city’s dollars are being spent. It is time for 21st-century solutions to public safety that are rooted in prevention and not just criminalization, rooted in community-based, equity-focused methodologies that actually protect communities.

The air quality in parts of our city is a public health crisis. My own daughter has been hospitalized multiple times due to asthma. While I believe in the critical importance of jobs, I will not allow coal to be transported through West Oakland, further sickening our children.

Ensure Oakland is a sanctuary city by providing a commitment to a policy that prevents any collusion between local law enforcement and federal agencies. Also working closely with the most impacted communities to create and strengthen rapid response networks, “know-your-rights” training, and other community safety mechanisms.
