P&B Spotlight: Billy Vranish

July 30th, 2012 by Tygh

This week's spotlight is on Billy Vranish, one of Pennington & Bailes new models!  This photo comes from the shoot in anticipation of the Chick-Fil-A Classic on August 31, 2012 where NC State will play Tennessee.  After the big shoot I had the chance to sit down with Billy and ask him a few questions about Pennington & Bailes, school, and football.

BS:  Why did you want to model for Pennington & Bailes?

BV:  Pennington & Bailes to me represents a high class, southern brand that allows me to show some schools spirit in a fun attention grabbing way.

BS: Did your appreciation for Pennington & Bailes make you want to become a male model?

BV: I love the gear that Pennington & Bailes makes and actually own a few pairs of pants myself.  I believe that all fans of college sports should know about Pennington & Bailes.

BS:  Which is your favorite Pennington & Bailes product?

BV:  I just realized the other day that Pennington & Bailes has an awesome line of shoes, including some really nice brown loafers and sharp bucks. I would have to say, though, that the gameday polo comes in at a close second to the coach's shirt, which I wish I owned in every color. I also really love my pair of orange stadium pants with the embroidered Gator logo. I get so many complements on them, even from opposing fans, that I wear them on most gamedays.

BS:  Which SEC football stadium is your favorite?

BV:  Although I can never get enough of hearing the cannons go off from the pirate ship after the Buc's score a touchdown in Raymond James Stadium, there's a reason they say there's nothing like The Swamp.

BS:  What is your favorite gameday tradition?

BV:  I wake up every Saturday morning, no matter what time kickoff is, at 7am. After a Big & Toasty from Dunkin' Donuts for breakfast (if you haven't had one you need to try it), my brothers and I watch College Gameday starting at 9, and continue celebrating Gator football until kickoff.

BS:  Where do you see the future of Pennington & Bailes going?

BV:  I am excited to see Pennington & Bailes grow by word of mouth and a strong viral campaign to get college students around the nation excited about their products. I definitely think that tapping into the Greek market would be huge, and I could definitely see every fraternity man and sorority woman decked out in Pennington & Bailes gear not only on gamedays, but on campus throughout the week as well.

BS:  When you're not rooting on the Gators, what else do you enjoy doing in your spare time?

BV:  I really enjoy relaxing  in a rocking chair on the front porch of my house, which is directly across the street from Ben Hill Griffin stadium, and enjoying a nice cigar while sipping on some bourbon or scotch and enjoying the company of my friends and brothers. I also like reading, video games, playing golf, and watching Sportscenter.

Billy is a fourth year Political Science and Economics major.  Special thanks to the photographer Lauren Stockman for shooting all of these photos in Downtown Gainesville.

Pennington & Bailes Club Room: Gameday Lives Here

July 25th, 2012 by Tygh

Football season is right around the corner and I'll be rooting on the Gators and hopefully traveling around the Southeastern Conference in my Stadium Pants to see them win a few games.  However if your team happens to bring you to the heart of the Gator Nation here in Gainesville, Florida, make sure you stop by the Pennington & Bailes Club Room this Fall!

The Pennington & Bailes Club Room

Stop in and you can see our brand new apparel, get fitted for a pair of Stadium Pants, or talk football with the Pennington & Bailes team.  Special thanks to Amanda Prokopi from Everything Earth here in Gainesville for decorating the Club Room!  She did a fantastic job encompassing the Pennington & Bailes products and lifestyle into our Club Room!  Here are a few more shots of the rest of the room!

P&B Spotlight: Trevor Abbott

July 23rd, 2012 by Tygh

This week's spotlight is on Trevor Abbott, one of Pennington & Bailes new models!  This photo comes from the shoot in anticipation of the Chick-Fil-A Classic on August 31, 2012 where NC State will play Tennessee.  After the big shoot I had the chance to sit down with Trevor and ask him a few questions about Pennington & Bailes, school, and football.

BS:  Why did you want to model for Pennington & Bailes?

TA:  Pennington & Bailes is the complete deal. They took high quality clothing and crossbred it with great embroidery for some of the best gameday outfits.

BS: Did your appreciation for Pennington & Bailes make you want to become a male model?

TA: I was approached and asked to model and I thought that their styles were classy and neat so I wanted to get on-board to help the brand grow.

BS:  Which is your favorite Pennington & Bailes product?

TA:  The searsucker Gameday shorts are my favorite Pennington & Bailes product because there is nothing else like them. A close second is the needle point SEC belt (a Smathers & Branson original).

BS:  Which SEC football stadium is your favorite?

TA:  The SWAMP is my favorite football stadium. GO GATORS!.

BS:  Ok so going to the football games is fun, but what is your favorite gameday tradition?

TA:  My favorite gameday tradition is the gameday barbecue that we have every Saturday, and singing "We are the Boys of Old Florida" at the end of the third quarter in the Swamp.  It's one of the neatest things to see all of the fans get so into a song going into the 4th quarter.

BS:  When you're not rooting on the Gators, what else do you enjoy doing in your spare time?

TA:  My favorite thing to do outside of work is to go on my boat and fish. A day on the water always beats a day at work.

Trevor is a third year mechanical engineering major.  Special thanks to the photographer Lauren Stockman for shooting all of these photos in Downtown Gainesville.

P&B Spotlight: Brett Hill

July 17th, 2012 by Tygh

This week's spotlight is on Brett Hill, one of Pennington & Bailes new models!  This photo comes from the shoot in anticipation of the Chick-Fil-A Classic on August 31, 2012 where NC State will play Tennessee.  After the big shoot I had the chance to sit down with Brett and ask him a few questions about Pennington & Bailes, school, and football.

BS:  Why did you want to model for Pennington & Bailes?

BH:  I wanted to model for Pennington & Bailes because I believe that they are a great company with great products.  They have the incredible potential to strike it big and a force to be reckoned with in the clothing market.

BS:  Which is your favorite Pennington & Bailes product?

BH:  I like the shotgun shell belt.  Its very original, very southern, and very cool.  Extremely cool and different.

BS:  Which SEC football stadium is your favorite?

BH:  Of course being a Gator my favorite stadium would have to be Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.  While I am a bit biased, there is nothing better than a Saturday in Fall in Gainesville.  The whole experience is really something special.  Plus with 90,000 plus people all screaming at the top of their lungs doing the gator chomp it really can be the loudest stadium in the nation.  There is something really cool about the Swamp.

BS:  Ok so going to the football games is fun, but how do you tailgate before hand?

BH:  I like to kickback, have a few drinks, and enjoy the company around me.  That usually involves eating a few hot dogs or hamburgers and playing a few games of corn hole.

BS:  When you're not rooting on the Gators, what else do you enjoy doing in your spare time?

BH:  I really like to watch movies, with my current favorite being Inglorious Basterds.

Special thanks to the photographer Lauren Stockman for shooting all of these photos in Downtown Gainesville.

Summer Olympics – Swimming

July 17th, 2012 by Tygh

The 2012 Summer Olympics are quickly approaching and I've been reflecting on my favorite olympic moments and the legacy that the United States has left at the Olympics.  Today's post is about swimming, one of my favorite olympic sports and probably the most popular.  My favorite moment (and the only one that I've been alive for) was in 2008 when Michael Phelps won 8 gold medals and beat Mark Spitz's record of 7.  This solidified him as the greatest Olympic athlete ever to participate in the games.

Combined these guys have won 15 gold medals for our country, which is 15 more gold medals that I've ever won.  I believe that Spitz put it best calling Phelps the greatest of all time, although he doesn't have a sweet stache as Spitz once did.

Summer Olympics – Uniforms

July 16th, 2012 by Tygh

Ralph Lauren recently released the official 2012 Summer Olympic and although there has been a lot of debate over the style, I like them. Shown above are Olympic athletes, including swimmer and Gator-great Ryan Lochte holding the American Flag.  Ralph Lauren has captured the classic preppy American style with the double breasted blue blazer and white pants.  I disagree with the beret but nothing says style more than a unique piece to top it all off.

The casual look is great as well and my favorite piece from this collection is the ribbon belt.  Overall Ralph Lauren did a good job with the 2012 Summer Olympic uniforms and this is a great way to show national pride this summer.

 

New Footwear

July 13th, 2012 by Tygh

This week has been the release of Pennington & Bailes new footwear.  Its finally Friday and just about time to slip into a pair of loafers and enjoy the weekend.

All of these shoes are extremely comfortable and I receive a ton of compliments when I'm out and around town.  The Boat Shoe on the left is a unique take on the classic boat shoe with the two tone leather, and it has quickly become one of my personal favorites.  The newest addition to Pennington & Bailes' collection is the Saddle Shoe, which during the summer I prefer to wear sans socks.  This is the perfect gameday shoe hands down when wearing the Stadium Pants and rooting on your favorite team.  The Pennington & Bailes Driving Mocs are a classic weekend shoe  and what I'll be putting on as soon as the clock strikes 5:00 this afternoon.  Whether you're headed to happy hour or lounging around the house, you cannot go wrong with the leather, nubuck, or suede Driving Mocs from Pennington & Bailes.

For a chance to win a pair for free head over to our Facebook page and see our latest contest.  Contest rules are posted and ends 7/16/12.  Good luck!

American Icon: Michael Jordan

July 11th, 2012 by Tygh

Not only is Michael Jordan an American Icon and the greatest basketball player to ever touch the court, he is one of my personal heroes.  How can  you deny the greatest of all time? Jordan has had so many iconic photos and great moments throughout his career in, out, and back in basketball that he deserves this post.

You can't blame a guy who slam dunked on a horse!  Besides this fantasy picture, my favorite Jordan moment has to be when the Bulls won their first championship with Jordan on the team in 1991.

This started a craze around Jordan and the Bulls, which growing up in Chicago made sport all that more fun to grow up with.  He has defined basketball and set a standard for greatness that will never be beat.

When the Bulls won in 1996, Jordan knew he was on top of the world, as pictured above, but he wasn't finished.  He is the greatest of all time and continues to inspire me to never give up and strive for success daily.  Here are a few more of my favorite pictures.

The iconic Jordan dunk.

MJ's signature move, his tongue out.

This man knows style and knows the game of basketball.  In my mind he is undoubtedly the greatest to ever play the game.

Look Like A Real Football Coach

July 9th, 2012 by Tygh

No one likes to show up to a party wearing the exact same shirt as another guy there, and that is why I am hooked on the Coach's Shirt from Pennington & Bailes.  I find it tough to find a comfortable, good looking shirt that all of your friends don't already have, so for me the search ended here.

One of the main reasons that I enjoy the Coach's Shirt so much is the versatility of the shirt.  When wearing the Coach's Shirt I have the ability to dress it up or wear the shirt untucked with a pair of flip flops, the look that I prefer most of the time when heading to class or going to grab a bite to eat with friends.  This more casual look is perfect for the college kid, and dressing up the shirt is a good look for anyone.

I can wear my Coach's Shirt just about anywhere and still show off my school pride, and with the multi-check gingham I would be surprised if someone had the same shirt unless it was from Pennington & Bailes.
