• Party Favors.

    I didn’t mention it in either the Saks Spring Preview post or in our interview with Mr. Eric Jennings, but…I scored that night.

    Get your head out the gutter there Beaver, not that way. But when the hosts announced that they were announcing the winner of the evening’s raffle, Cas and I scooted as quickly as we could to front so that we could get a view and perhaps some photos. I never managed to get the damn photo though, because as it turns out, they announced my name. In between Cas’ victory whoops and Mr. Jennings’ bemused smile (we had just finished our interview literally just minutes earlier) and handshake, I was still fondling the lens, wondering if I should stick to the front to take pictures of the other winners.

    Surprise again. I didn’t just win one of the items in the glass case…I won ALL of the goodies. Needless to say, I was beyond stoked. Click after the jump to take a peek into my goodie bag…

    A MADE TO MEASURE SHIRT. Holy crap. Talk about luxe. I’ve got a couple months to trim off some puppy poundage, and I’ll definitely be doing that before getting a shirt done up.

    $100 gift certificate to NOPA restaurant here in SF. The reviews and menu both suggest the spectacular. These folk at Saks definitely know the way to a mans heart.

    Now the real fun begins…

    Dunhill Cigars. Perfect for after I’m done destroying alien spaceships.

    Modo Saki sunglasses. Made in Japan, with handsome wood details, and very lightweight. Shame they don’t fit my face all that well.


    Scott Kay cufflinks. Sterling silver, with some sort of enamel inlay. One thing that the pictures can’t show is just how hefty these things are. They’re some serious heavyweights. Should go well with the new made to measure shirt, no?

    Two of my favorites in the bag…

    Which is more out of place, the steer skulls on the royal purple…

    …or the Jolly Roger bunnies on the presidential background? In any case, both are awesome.


    Last goodie…wonder if it’s any good…

    Hrm. Yeah I’d say that’s pretty good.

    Like I said, I came up. Thanks again to the very very kind people at Saks. According to our girl Franchesca, apparently all this schwag is worth in excess of…well, it’s definitely a lot. Can’t wait till I get to finally wear it all out. I’ll probably end up spilling a vodka cranberry on it, because that’s how my luck goes.

    And before my boy Latarian Milton can get on my case about it, I forgot to turn down the ISO until I was already knee deep in post-processing. Oh well.
